"Yeah, you know it was really encouraging," [Francona] said on NESN. "Usually after you get an injection like that, because of the numbing medicine, if you feel relief right away then they've kind of got it in the right area.

Probably tryptophan.
Francona said he didn't know what the injection was, but added Drew was scheduled to take batting practice on Thursday and be in the lineup on Friday, the Globe reported.
