Clay Buchholz was scratched from his scheduled turn in the Red Sox rotation on Monday against the Phillies due to discomfort in his collarbone. But he checked out fine in a visit with team doctors and was able to throw this week, so the right-hander has been cleared to start on Friday night against the Yankees.
This according to Tim Britton, the excellent Red Sox beat writer for the Providence Journal.
Buchholz has registered an outstanding 1.73 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 73/27 K/BB ratio in 72 2/3 innings this season and the Red Sox are 9-1 in his 10 starts. The collarbone issue is not expected to be a lingering thing.
