Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz was expected to make two Minor League rehab appearances before rejoining the Major League squad, but he started off on the wrong foot this afternoon. Given a pitch count between 45 and 50 pitches, Buchholz threw 38 and did not make it out of the first inning, walking the final two batters he faced, reports Gordon Edes of ESPN.
Buchholz last pitched in a Major League game on June 8 against the Angels. He landed on the disabled list with bursitis in his right shoulder. At the time of his injury, he was a front-runner for the American League Cy Young award, owning a 1.71 ERA in 84.1 innings over 12 starts.
The organization expects him to make another rehab outing on Friday. Whether that start is with Triple-A Pawtucket or Double-A Portland has not been determined yet.
