Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz is unlikely to come off of the disabled list to start on Tuesday as he felt tightness in his trapezius muscle after throwing from flat ground, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. The right-hander suffered the injury during his start against the Angels on June 8. CSN New England’s Sean McAdam says Buchholz will now need a rehab stint to get back in shape before being activated.
Buchholz is a perfect 9-0 with an MLB-best 1.71 ERA in 12 starts. In his absence, Alfredo Aceves has made two spot starts, allowing two runs over 11 innings. Allen Webster, back in the Majors for a third time this year, also makes a spot start tonight against the Tigers.
