MLB Injury News:
On Monday, Boston Red Sox' pitcher Clay Buchholz, who has been out since June 8, got encouraging news from Dr. James Andrews.
As reported by Ian Browne and Michael Periatt of MLB.com,
"There is nothing significantly wrong with Buchholz's right shoulder
or neck. The pain he feels when he tries to throw off the mound is
normal considering the time he has missed."
"Andrews had basically the same diagnosis as Boston's medical staff -- Buchholz is just recovering from inflammation."
Knowing that the soreness is not injury related, Buchholz should be able to increase his work out intensity and get back into game shape quicker.
Manager John Farrell believes Buchholz will need three bullpen sessions and a simulated game before beginning a Minor League rehab assignment.
Buchholz, who has a career record of 55-32 with a 3.66 earned run average, is having his best Major League season this year. In 12 starts, he has a 9-0 record with a 1.71 earned run average. He has allowed only 57 hits in 84 1/3 innings pitched.
