MLB Injury News:
As the Boston Red Sox and Clay Buchholz prepare for the young ace's eventual return to the active roster, plans are being hatched to get him the needed pitching action before sending him off on a rehab assignment. Buchholz will need two more bullpen sessions before being ready for his minor league rehab assignment. He'll get those sessions this week.
Evan Drellich of MassLive.com says the Red Sox plan to have Buchholz throw his first bullpen session Tuesday or Wednesday. The second one will come later in the week - dependent on when the first occurs. They may have him throw the two bullpen sessions on Wednesday and Friday in preparation for a Sunday minor league start.
"Tuesday or Wednesday is our tentative plan right now," Sox manager John Farrell said, "or possibly Wednesday and Friday. For two bullpens that will put him in line — provided there's no setbacks — put him in line for a start next Sunday."
Buchholz was having a fantastic season before right shoulder bursitis popped up and de-railed him. He is hoping to get things back on track quickly so he can return and help the Sox maintain their AL East lead. The bursitis started innocuously. He was given a few days extra rest here and there as it appeared his shoulder just may be tired. Unfortunately, it was more than that.
Prior to his injury, Buchholz was 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA. If he can return and match even a percentage of that success, the Red Sox will be in good shape. As it stands now, Boston is 54-36. They have a 4.5 game lead in the division.

Well this isn’t good.
During Saturday’s game against the Angels, Red Sox left-handed reliever Andrew Miller was pulled with an injured left foot, unable to walk off without assistance. Today, news has come down that Miller had sustained significant damage to the ligament in his foot, and would have season-ending surgery.
Make no mistake; while Miller may not be a big-name star...
(Stephen Dunn/Getty Images)Everyone will focus on the bullpen meltdown in analyzing Boston's most devastating loss of the season, 9-7 in 11 innings last night. With two outs in the ninth, Alex Wilson and Koji Uehara could not protect a four-run lead. That said, it was the countless missed scoring opportunities early in the game that should have turned this into a laugher for...
Boston Red Sox players Jarrod Saltalamacchia, Clay Buchholz, Andrew Miller and Dustin Pedroia campaign for Koji Uehara to win the Final Vote and make the 2013 AL All-Star Team.

I can admit it: I was wrong about Jonny Gomes.
After being critical of the Red Sox signing the outfielder in the offseason, he has proven me wrong by playing a big role for the first place team. Last week he hit his second walk off home run, and his third walk off hit of the season.
I did say he was just a reliable body the Sox signed, but he has played in 63 games and has delivered...
Just when it seemed like the Red Sox were finally out of the woods when it came to reliever questions, a dark cloud settled back over the bullpen.
Reliever Andrew Miller will undergo a season-ending foot surgery to repair ligament damage in his left foot, leaving Boston with Craig Breslow as the only left-handed reliever on the roster. Sox general manager Ben Cherington talked with...
Jarrod Saltalamacchia has come a long way behind the plate. “Salty” isn’t among the elite at his position, but he’s developed into a solid defensive catcher. He is certainly among the most cerebral. Once looked at as an offense-first backstop, he is playing a key role in the success of a Boston Red Sox pitching staff that is exceeding expectations.
Originally a first-round...
Last year, the Red Sox all wore No. 6 for a day in honor of the late Johnny Pesky. Now, The Jimmy Fund if giving people a chance to win one of those jerseys — autographed by a current Red Sox player.
Beginning July 8 and continuing through Aug. 16, anyone who makes a donation of $60 or more to The Jimmy Fund will be automatically entered to win one of six No. 6 jerseys. The players...
It’s no secret that the Red Sox are hot right now. They own the best record in the American League and the second best in MLB with 54 wins.
That’s why the Angels’ pitching choice for Saturday night’s late-night matchup is so interesting — the west coast team could be setting themselves up for failure.
NESN Nation’s Alison Smith breaks down why that is in the above video...
Jon Lester was roughed for five runs and the Boston Red Sox bullpen allowed another six in an 11-4 to the Seattle Mariners on Monday night at Safeco Field in Seattle, WA.

Game 91: Sox lose a laugher 11-4
Ugh. It's just not getting any better for Jon Lester in 2013. Lester went 5+ innings, giving up five runs on nine hits in the loss to the Seattle Mariners. His ERA stands at a bloated 4.60. While many of the Red Sox starters are getting better, the former ace is getting worse. Yes, he was squeezed a bit by...
There are inevitably going to be a lot of rumors leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, and this one is rather vague. It’s still worth passing along, though, as it gives an indication of what the Red Sox might be looking for while trying to improve their roster.
According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Red Sox are open to “possible trade-market upgrades” in the...
The stage was set perfectly for the Red Sox to show America that they are indeed the best team in baseball, the Sunday Night game on ESPN. Its the game that everyone that is a baseball fan watches, and the Sox came out flat, getting only 5 hits in 9 innings, scoring 0 runs. Lackey pitched well, a good showing from him back in his old stomping grounds...
I hate Red Sox West Coast road trips. Like, I really, seriously LOATHE West Coast road trips. I’m one of those people who’s really finicky about my sleep schedule, to the point that I’ll ditch my friends to go home and sleep. But as you all know by now, I’m also extremely serious about the Red Sox, and I’m willing to sacrifice a consistent sleep schedule for a few days...
