BOSTON -- Red Sox manager John Farrell says pitcher John Lackey probably won't take his next turn in Boston's rotation.

Lackey walked off the mound with pain in his right arm on Saturday. That was his first start after major elbow surgery.

Farrell says an MRI showed inflammation but no tear in Lackey's biceps. The manager said before Monday's home opener against Baltimore that it's unlikely Lackey will make his start on Friday. But the Red Sox aren't ready to put the right-hander on the disabled.

It's also possible Lackey could be pushed back just a few days.

Lackey sat out last season following elbow ligament-replacement surgery in November 2011. He struck out eight Toronto batters before leaving Saturday's game, which Boston lost 5-0.
