He's 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA and a WHIP of 1.020. He is a 2013 All-Star. And, yet, he hasn't pitched since June 9th. Such is the conundrum facing the the Red Sox and their presumed "ace" Clay Buchholz. The latest word is that his Sunday bullpen session resulted in continued "soreness" in his shoulder's "bursa sac". So, he did not work out (as planned) at Citi Field with Red Sox trainers. Instead, he will delay any throwing until this Thursday. But the most shocking piece of information emerged from an article by WEEI.com's Rob Bradford. Tucked away in the piece is this (emphasis is ours): "While he suggested that he might be able to pitch in a crucial situation in September, given the stage of the season and his hope to achieve a complete recovery in which he can pitch without any hint of soreness, Buchholz said that he and the team determined that his throwing program should be pushed back while he rests during the break."September? Might? Are you kidding? This whole fiasco suggests that the right-hander is sending us signals that we might not see him at all for the rest of 2013.
