John Lackey will be sidelined for 3-4 weeks after an MRI showed a strained right triceps Friday.
The Los Angeles Angels right-hander made his first spring training start last Monday, tossing 1.2 innings against the Oakland Athletics, apparently without pain. But since the Halos are out their ace for Opening Day, they may be forced to go with their projected No. 2 starter, Kelvim Escobar.
Lackey, a 19-game winner last season, enjoyed a 3.01 ERA with 179 strikeouts in 2007.
