Clay Buchholz To Start Friday At Pawtucket

After throwing a bullpen session today at Fenway Park, Clay Buchholz will start for the Pawtucket Red Sox tomorrow. The re-habbing right-hander threw 15 pitches in the bullpen and 15 to "hitters"—a grand total of 30. After the Friday start, he is scheduled for one more rehab minor league stint next Wednesday. After that, he will somehow have to be shoe-horned into the rotation—with Ryan Demspter possibly being shifted to the bullpen. Realistically, since Buchholz has been out 10 weeks, it's anyone's guess when or even if he will pitch again this year for the Red Sox. Frankly, we're tired of this Soap Opera. We'll believe it when we see him on the mound.
