03:35 PM ET 05.11 | It's been a rough week for closers. First, Arizona Diamondbacks' fireman J.J. Putz goes down with an arm injury that will keep him out of action for a few months and now Boston Red Sox closer Joel Hanrahan received similar news. After a mid-April disabled list stint due to a hamstring, Hanrahan returned to action in early May but it didn't last long as the former Pittsburgh Pirate only lasted three outings before he was forced out again with an injury. This time though, it was severe. Hanrahan said there wasn't really even a choice. With the flexor tendon torn off the bone, surgery is a must. It'll end his season.

I'd be more concerned if he hadn't sucked all year anyway.

I can't believe it! How does a fat tub of lard injure himself within the first couple weeks of season? Didn't see this coming...

It seemed like a good signing at the time. Hopefully Bailey is back soon.

I agree.

You can add Cards Jason Motte to the season ended injury list also.

Maybe they can get Papelbon back..............
