Clay Buchholz, a candidate to start for the AL in next month’s All-Star Game, was forced out of his start Saturday against the Giants in the second inning after hyperextending his left knee running the bases.
It looks like Boston’s second pitching casualty that’s a direct result of interleague play. Josh Beckett originally hurt his back last month taking batting practice in preparation for his starts in NL parks.
Buchholz’s injury probably isn’t particularly serious, and it should help that the injury isn’t to the leg he uses to push off the mound. If he does need to miss some time, the Red Sox could bring left-hander Felix Doubront back from Triple-A. Doubront made one start earlier this month before Daisuke Matsuzaka returned from the disabled list.
