As the Red Sox prepare for the start of the Yankees series, bad news filtered through Fenway Park.
Andrew Bailey is injured and likely done for the season.
Manger John Farrell announced that Bailey has significant damage to the labrum and capsule in his shoulder. While Bailey is weighing options, it looks like season ending surgery. Recovery time is about 12 months.
Farrell said the injury occurred during Bailey's relief stint in Oakland last Friday.
It’s been a tough season for Bailey. He was on the DL earlier this season with a biceps strain. Since returning, Bailey has not pitched well posting a 5.51 ERA with eight walks and six home runs allowed over 16 1/3 innings.
The Clay Buchholz watch continues. Buchholz was supposed to throw a bullpen session on Thursday. It didn't happen. All the Red Sox can do now is wait.
Farrell said that Buchholz had his bullpen session scratched due to soreness after attempting to pick up the intensi...

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters –
including Jason Mastrodonato of MLB.com – that the team will activate shortstop
Stephen Drew from the 15-day disabled list Saturday, adding that the veteran
will start tomorrow’s contest against the New York Yankees.

As Clay Buchholz recovers from a neck strain as well as shoulder bursitis and battles through some minor setbacks, questions have arisen based on comments he made to media yesterday. The Red Sox ace specifically said he has been told by doctors that there is no risk in him playing, but he does not feel ready for a return. Questioning a player's injury status is not something...
The first post-All-Star break pitch has not yet been thrown, and already, the Red Sox have been dealt some bad news.
Oft-injured reliever Andrew Bailey is headed to the disabled list with a shoulder injury, multiple sources have confirmed. Bailey ceded the closer job to Koji Uehara last month, but over the past few weeks, with the aid of a different grip on his cutter, he had been...
The Boston Red Sox activated shortstop Stephen Drew from the disabled list and optioned third baseman Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday before a game against the New York Yankees.
Drew, hitting .233 with five homers and 31 RBIs, missed 16 games because of a strained right hamstring. He was in the starting lineup on Saturday, playing shortstop and batting eighth.
Boston Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz has been arguably the most dominant pitcher in baseball when healthy this season, but he’s currently working his way back from a right shoulder injury. On Thursday the Red Sox announced their ace hit a bump in the road in his recovery and could be out even longer than anticipated.
In 12 starts this season Buchholz has posted a 9-0 record with...

Clay Buchholz has hit yet another bump in his road to recovery.
The right-hander’s bullpen session originally for Thursday was scratched, Red Sox manager John Farrell told reporters, and team doctors will now re-examine Buchholz’s right shoulder prior to Friday’s game against the Yankees.
“Over the past couple of days, [Buchholz] did not pick up a baseball,” Farrell said...
Four days since his last bullpen session, Clay Buchholz' injury saga continues with no end in sight.
But for now, at least, it appears the Red Sox won't alter their approach to the trade deadline.
Buchholz hasn't picked up a baseball since last Sunday, when he felt lingering discomfort in his balky right shoulder after a bullpen session in Oakland. He wasn't present...
Stephen Drew‘s return comes at the expense of Brock Holt.
Drew was activated off the 15-day disabled list before Saturday’s game against the Yankees, and Holt was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for the Red Sox shortstop.
