Clay Gets Injection, May Be Done For Season

Famed elbow guru Dr. James Andrews examined Clay Buchholz yesterday and gave the ailing righty an injection of 'platelet-rich plasma'. Andrews also recommended that Buchholz be shut down for at least another two weeks. Based on current projections (shutdown period, rehab), the earliest Buchholz could return to the Red Sox rotation would be sometime in September. But—given his track record—the next realistic time we see Clay will be February in Fort Myers. Deal with it.
