Clay Buchholz gets a good report from Dr. James Andrews

Jul 22, 2013, 5:17 PM EST

The phrase “Clay Buchholz will pay a visit to Dr. James Andrews” probably freaked a lot of Red Sox fans out, but the news is not so bad:


This confirms earlier diagnoses. Buchholz will continue his throwing program. Assuming he feels better by August, this could be a blessing in disguise, as the Sox will be getting a relatively fresh-armed ace back for the stretch run.

    That is definitely good news.

    I wonder if this is ever as good as it’ll ever get with Buchholz. He’s got great stuff but just has a fragile, easily-injured frame…and at 28, he’s not getting any younger.

    OK! Time for Buchholz to get back to work.

    This visit to Dr. Andrews was the ultimate no-win situation for young Clay – if you’re hurt that’s bad news, and if you’re not hurt then you’re a wimp.

    I’ll say this for Buchholz – I don’t blame him for questioning Red Sox team doctors after they mainlined him full of horse NSAIDs and almost killed him.

    Didn’t this all start with him “sleeping wrong” on his arm or something?

    2 days later he feels pain again
