Yeah, that notification didn't appear on Yahoo until between the two games of the doubleheader yesterday. Kinda damages my hold prospects, a cat I lead 3-2 this week. Hope he's back very soon.

Any updates here?

Everything I've read says he's good to go for this week and was only really held out on Saturday. I heard that he was available for yesterday's game, but Francona preferred to give him another day off.

I have to make a line-up decision for a weekly league. Okajima vs. Devine. I would prefer to use Okajima since they have 7 games and more favorable match-ups.

With three hold ops in two days, I could have used him being good to go this weekend. Tied holds 3-3....... :-C

good news:

Hideki Okajima (wrist) was cleared by Red Sox trainers to play catch on Monday.
He's been suffering from soreness in his wrist, and hasn't thrown since surrendering a grand slam to Baltimore's Jay Payton last Wednesday. Okajima was throwing from 60 feet with some "zip" on his tosses, and could be available tonight in his familiar set-up role.
