Carson Smith (elbow) will face live hitters next Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports. This will mark the first time Smith will face live hitters since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May. (Pete Abraham on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

The Red Sox are hoping for a return of mid-June for Smith. He will be a boost to the bullpen and while he won't be able to supplant current closer Craig Kimbrel he will be in a position to acquire holds. He is a good add in any fantasy leagues that value the holds category.
