Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies for precautionary reasons after feeling discomfort in his right collarbone. Alfredo Aceves will start in his place. Buchholz expressed little concern over the issue and feels he will start in a few days and avoid being skipped in the rotation entirely. He said he slept wrong on his right side while cradling his daughter after the team returned from Chicago on Wednesday, and woke up with some minor irritation. "The night we got back from the road trip, just got in bed and had the little girl with me and I feel asleep like this [with her crooked in his arm] instead of on my back like I usually do," Buchholz said. "When I woke up the next morning it felt a little tight. So I came in here and have been getting treatment on it. I could pitch tomorrow if I had to, but I don't have to. So I'll take my time and get it all the way out and pitch in a couple more days." ESPNBoston | Clay Buchholz (7-0) to miss start This helps explain why Alfredo Aceves was called up. Most were speculating that he was bullpen insurance given how much they've been used lately, but now it's clear they needed him as a starter. Franklin Morales is due back tomorrow, but that would be a lot to ask (plus ask other starters to be thrown out of their routine. Sounds like nothing really to worry about, especially considering (if you click the link and read more) that Buchholz was the one to hold himself out. That means John Farrell and the medical staff aren't concerned -- although I suppose with our medical staff's reputation for misdiagnosis that's not really all that comforting. Today's game should be an adventure. The last time we saw Aceves he had a complete meltdown on the mound. He'll take on a struggling Philadelphia team that's missing Chase Utley, Carlos Ruiz, and probably Ryan Howard. Maybe a good start will raise his stock and we can send him packing to another team.   The spotlight never shined brighter and the pressure never weighed heavier on Jose Iglesias than yesterday in the bottom of the ninth inning, when he faced Cleveland closer Chris Perez with two outs and two runners on. It was a situation where a 23-year-old rookie could look like a 23-year-old rookie who still belongs in Pawtucket or one who belongs at Fenway Park. So when Iglesias worked a full count and laid off a 92 mph fastball that just missed for ball four, he not only kept a rally going that eventually produced a 6-5 win, he also proved the moment isn’t too big for him in a major league setting. “That was the game right there,” David Ortiz said of Iglesias’ at-bat. “That was the game. That at-bat was unbelievable. You know, it was — he fouled some nasty pitches. He (stuck) with his plan; that was the game right there.” Herald | Jose Iglesias' walk is a hit with Farrell Jose! /swoon ESPNBoston | Big hit could turn Ellsbury around | Jacoby Ellsbury's 2-run double caps 9th inning rally vs. Indians | For Doubront, still some good, some bad | Morales likely to return Tuesday | Herald | Jacoby Ellsbury double caps dramatic 9th-inning rally | Francona wraps up return to Boston | Sox rally to beat Tribe in ninth | Stephen Drew busts out of slump in big way | Notebook: Clay Buchholz skips today's start as precaution | Globe | Perez hurt, Smith hit, Indians lose to Red Sox 6-5 | Clay Buchholz scratched from Monday start | Farrell says Franklin Morales due back Tuesday | Red Sox' Jacoby Ellsbury is coming around | CSNNE | Buchholz scratched from Monday's start | Ellsbury comes through in clutch for Sox | Red Sox walk off with 6-5 win over Tribe
