Look who's coming back!

Lost in today's uproar created by David "The Big Mouth" Wells is that Foulke completed his third of three scheduled reahab starts on Tuesday.

"Foulke, who will be activated from the disabled list Thursday, leaves the short-season New York-Penn League with a 7.36 ERA and a .421 opponents' batting average, along with eight hits, five strikeouts, and one walk in 3 2/3 innings."

He didn't exactly pitch lights out on Tuesday either with 1 IP, 7 batters faced and 2 ER. It looks like we'll be seeing him soon, but can the Sox handle another critical pitcher who isn't pitching at top form at this point in the season? I'll be glad to have him back, but with numbers like that, I can't say I'm not going to be worried.
