It has been a long season for Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz. After starting the season with what appeared to be Cy Young-worthy (9-0, 1.71 ERA, 81 K, opposing BA at .195, in 12 appearances), he ended up injuring his neck back on June 9th. Buchholz was put on the 60-day DL and has been rehabbing ever since.
His first rehab assignment was on August 25th in Short-Season Single-A with the Lowell Spinners against the Hudson Valley Renegades. The stat line was as followed: ND in 0.2 IP, 3 R (1 ER), 1H, 3BB, and 1K .
Buchholz was then transferred to Triple-A Pawtucket on August 30th for a 2nd rehab start against the Syracuse Chiefs. The stat line was as followed: ND, 3.1 IP, 1 R (1 ER), 7H, 0BB, 2K, throwing 53 pitches, 34 for strikes. Afterwards, he spoke with the media about his rehab and what the future holds for him.
