Clay Buchholz’s return from his shoulder and neck injury is moving at a glacial pace — but it is moving.
The Red Sox righty had good news this weekend, telling reporters that he’s feeling the best he has in a while after throwing Sunday.
“This is the best I’ve felt since the day in Seattle where I threw and didn’t feel anything,” Buchholz said of the July 8-11 road trip. “That’s where we’re at.”
Buchholz has been out since June 8 with tightness in his right shoulder and neck area.
“This was the highest intensity I’ve thrown today, to the point where I’m not thinking I’m going to feel something,” he said. “I was able to let loose a little more.”
Buchholz said he was throwing at about 80 percent. He also did some long toss, although he has not thrown off a mound for some time.

There is some light at the end of the tunnel for Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. He has had a prolonged comeback from a bursa sac strain in his right shoulder, but that comeback may see him throw from the mound for the first time in the near future.
As reported by Ian Browne of MLB.com,
"Snce the All-Star break, Buchholz has been limited to flat-ground work. Once...
Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz threw a bullpen session today in Houston. While encouraging, the injured righty is still not ready to pitch in a game.

DUANE BURLESON/ASSOCIATED PRESS According to a report from ESPNBoston.com, Boston Red Sox right fielder Shane Victorino was named the American League Player of the Week on Monday. The Wailuku, Hawaii native certainly had a week to remember last week as he batted .400 (12-for-30) with two home runs, three doubles, seven runs scored, and six RBIs. Against the Seattle Mariners last...
The Boston Red Sox open their 10-game road trip Monday night against the lowly Astros at Minute Maid Ballpark. The Red Sox continued their success this weekend by taking two of three from the second place Diamonbacks. The Red Sox dropped a close one 7-6 to open the series on Friday but were able to beat NL Cy Young candidate Patrick Corbin on Saturday in Jake Peavy's debut...
Maybe this is John Lackey‘s baseball penance.
The Red Sox right-hander, who has been arguably the club’s best, most consistent and most durable pitcher in this turnaround 2013 season, just can’t seem to buy a win. No team in baseball has more wins than the Red Sox do right now. Yet Lackey’s seven wins are the second-fewest in the Boston rotation and his nine losses are the...
New Red Sox starter Jake Peavy was impressive in his Boston debut Saturday night.
When Peavy wasn’t muttering to himself on the mound, he was mowing down Diamondbacks. Peavy worked fast, threw strikes and displayed the air of an ace in the Sox 5-2 win.
Peavy’s final line was seven innings, 99 pitches, four hits, two earned runs, two walks and...
The trade deadline of 2013 ended up being a dud, but the night before could prove instrumental to the fortunes of this Red Sox team. On the eve of the trade deadline, Boston made a huge move without giving up any of their prized prospects when they acquired White Sox pitcher Jake Peavy in a 3 team trade. Shortstop Jose Iglesias moves on to the Detroit Tigers, with Detroit outfielder...

Boston was shut down on five hits and beaten 2-0 by the immortal Brett Oberholtzer and two relievers. The Red Sox stranded eight baserunners in the loss, and saw their AL East lead shaved...

Yogi Berra famously said, “It’s like déjà vu, all over again.” This 2013 Boston Red Sox team seems to have a lot of 2004 in them. Rather than a group of so-called “idiots”, it’s a bunch of Bunyanesque ballplayers providing the walk-off magic. Time to fear the beard.
Player wise only one Red Sock remains from that 2004 curse killing World...
Diamondbacks leadoff man AJ Pollack walked back to the visitor's dugout flummoxed. Felix Doubront had pin-pointed a changeup at the bottom of the strike zone that Pollack didn't like but it didn't matter. He was the first of what would be many Arizona hitters frustrated on a day dominated by Doubront.
The Red Sox lefty pitched seven scoreless innings to help beat the...
In his Red Sox debut Jake Peavy had the unenviable duty of being matched up against Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin. But Peavy was up to the challenge earning the win as the Sox beat the Diamondbacks 5-2 at Fenway Park Saturday night.
The two nearly matched each other pitch for pitch. Through five innings Corbin a National League Cy Young candidate had given up one run...
BOSTON — Two Arizona reporters had to climb out through the top of a stuck elevator at Fenway Park on Saturday night after the Diamondbacks’ game against the Boston Red Sox.
Steve Gilbert of MLB.com and Todd Walsh of Fox Sports Arizona were returning to the press box after the Diamondbacks’ 5-2 loss. They boarded the elevator at the ground floor but got stuck before reaching...

Losing to the last-place team is never a good thing. But when you’re the best team in the league, it’s unacceptable. John Lackey pitched another solid outing but was unaided by the Red Sox offense – again – in a 2-0 loss to the Astros. The win was Houston’s 37th of the season, still four less than...

Right now, the Red Sox are in the thick of a heated division battle with the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles. That Yankees aren't included in this because their luck seems to have run out. Their captain, Derek Jeter probably will have a minimal role to play and Alex Rodriguez...well, you know. No point in reiterating...
