Clay Buchholz is still not ready to return to the mound.
The right-hander missed his scheduled start on Monday after feeling discomfort in his right AC joint, which is below the collarbone. Buchholz was initially expected to miss just one start, and his next outing would have been on Friday.
However, as the Boston Herald’s Scott Lauber reports, Buchholz said he experienced more discomfort near the collarbone during a bullpen session on Wednesday. As a result, Buchholz’s Friday start has been pushed back, and the earliest he may return to the mound is Sunday.
“He’s still a possibility for the New York series, but while he’s feeling improved, we felt like it would be best to give him a couple more days as well,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said. “He still feels some symptoms in that AC joint, and when he mentioned that, this is something I took out of his hands.”
So far in 2013, Buchholz has been an early season Cy Young favorite, going 7-0 with a 1.73 ERA and 73 strikeouts in 72 2/3...

He has been out of the Red Sox rotation all of 2013, until Thursday night that is.
Franklin Morales was rehabbing a left pectoral strain since the start of this season, but he was also focusing on his cutter. Last year he threw the cutter only 1% of the time. That means one pitch out of a hundred, or almost never.

Ells swiped five bags against the Phillies on Thursday night, and in doing so he set a new Red Sox team record. He also might have earned a little bit of revenge after he was plunked in the middle innings of the game, but who’s to say what does and doesn’t...
