Clay Buchholz Will Face NU Huskies Tuesday

(USAToday Sports)
While an Opening Day starter has not yet been named, Clay Buchholz will toe the rubber in the first Red Sox contest of 2015—a Tuesday matinee against Northeastern University. He will likely only hurl one inning—or until he gets knocked out of the game by the Hardball Huskies. Fittingly, Buchholz made the final start of the 2014 season—and will forever be the answer to the Trivia Question: 'Who pitched to Derek Jeter in his last at-bat?'. This may be more of a psychological morale-booster for the 30-year-old righty, who could become the elusive number one starter that he appeared to be in the early stages of the 2013 season.
