Evan Drellich, beat writer for MassLive.com, tells the story:

BOSTON — Maybe Clay Buchholz will need just one rehab start after all.

That’s a scenario the Red Sox right-hander suggested was possible Wednesday, on a day he said he felt like he had “finally turned a corner” in his recovery from right-shoulder bursitis. He threw from about 100 feet on flat ground, and would need to get to 120 feet before stepping on a mound.

“I feel like I am finally getting close to feeling pretty much normal now,” Buchholz told reporters following Wednesday afternoon’s 100-foot throwing session. “So the last few days of throwing are encouraging. I’m finally able to clear my head a little bit and go about it as just getting back to getting off the mound.”

Buchholz has not pitched in a game since June 8 due to neck and shoulder discomfort.

The hope is that he’ll be ready to return to the Red Sox rotation shortly after the All-Star break.
