More bad news about the best starting pitcher on the Red Sox. In a bullpen session today, Clay Buchholz felt "discomfort" after throwing only 18 pitches and was shut down again. The Red Sox sent the right-hander to get an MRI on his neck on Wednesday afternoon. No word yet on any results. This prolonged absence from the rotation is highly troubling and once again calls into question the long-term durability of Buchholz. Going 9-0 with a league-leading ERA before going down, he has not pitched since June 8th. Said Farrell of his prognosis, "We have to do what's right for Clay to get him back, not only active but to the level of performance that he was operating at before he went down."
