Lackey to have Jommy John surgery

New GM Ben Cherington announced today that Lackey will undergo Tommy John surgery.  WEEI's Rob Bradford reports that the surgery causes a sixth-year option to vest for Lackey at the league minimum.  This clause reduces the average annual value of the contract from $16.5MM to $13.8MM, creating luxury tax savings.
