BRANDENTON -- Some injury updates before the Red Sox take on the Pittsburgh Pirates at McKechnie Field, with Jon Lester facing the Pirates' Kevin Correia:
Vicente Padilla, who suffered a strained hamstring Monday in the weight room, was scheduled to play catch back in Fort Myers.
Manager Bobby Valentine said Padilla will miss his next outing, though there is some improvement being shown.
Andrew Miller, who came out of Tuesday night's game against Toronto with a left hamstring strain after throwing just three pitches, was limping in the clubhouse Wednesday morning.
"He was limping a little bit when I saw him before leaving for Bradenton,'' said Valentine.
The training staff told Valentine that Miller was experiencing both "soreness and stiffness'' Wednesday morning and that the next 24 hours would be important in determining the severity of the injury and how long he might miss.
