    Papelbon said that when he was administered a physical by the Philadelphia Phillies prior to signing as a free agent after the 2011 season, doctors asked him if he used Toradol. "A club's policy is related to how it's using Toradol, not whether it would use it," he said. The Boston Red Sox announced Monday they're reviewing their policy on Toradol, a legal anti-inflammatory drug used by many players across the league. Another Red Sox pitcher, Clay Buchholz, acknowledged last season that Toradol use might have contributed to the inflammation of his esophagus that sidelined him for 20 games. Buchholz was hospitalized in intensive care and lost three or four pints of blood while dealing with the condition, which is a known side effect of the painkiller.
