Keith Foulke Experiencing Soreness

Red Sox closer Keith Foulke has experienced soreness associated with a series of lubricant injections into his knees to replace natural fluid required to facilitate movement and shock absorbance. Manufacturers of "Synvisc" say the soreness is normal and may be mitigated with cortisone injections if necessary. Yankees starter Randy Johnson used the knee injections to good effect last year, and Foulke claims confidence that he'll be able to pitch when the season starts.
