Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz had to leave tonight’s game against the Angels in the seventh inning. He had been pitching well, limiting the Angels to two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four in six and two-thirds innings.
NESN’s live blog described the scenario:
9:59 p.m., Red Sox 7-2: Clay Buchholz is coming out of this ballgame. John Farrell and the trainer came out to check on Buchholz, who could be seen stretching out his right arm during the seventh inning. It’s unclear what is wrong with the right-hander, but Farrell certainly isn’t going to take any chances.
Ken Rosenthal clarified that it was a neck injury.
Buchholz is carrying a league-best 1.71 ERA, so losing him for any length of time would be a heavy blow to the Red Sox. We will know more about the severity of the issue once the team releases more information.
