John Lackey may be cursed. The high-priced Red Sox starting pitcher missed all of the 2012 season after having Tommy John surgery following an awful 2011 campaign in Boston. He made his 2013 debut with the Sox today in Toronto. After striking out eight Blue Jays through four-and-one-third innings, Lackey grabbed his right arm in pain after delivering a pitch to Jose Reyes in the fifth.

While it wasn’t the awfulness that the Dave Dravecky, Tom Browning or Tony Saunders incidents were on the mound, it did not look good for Lackey, who left with Boston trailing, 2-0. Toronto starter J.A. Happ is currently one-hitting the Sox.

[UPDATE: It's just a strained right bicep. Sox lost 5-0.]
