No Clay morrow? Anarchy!
With the benefit of hindsight, it’s easy to now understand why the Red Sox spent so much time and energy on finding a starting pitcher at the trade deadline.
Clay Buchholz, who’s been out six weeks, is suffering from a stress fracture in his lower back, according to a person with knowledge of the situation.
It’s unlikely that Buchholz will pitch again this season, though a return in the postseason has not entirely been ruled out yet.
Buchholz, whose last start was June 15, is scheduled to see noted back specialist Dr. Thomas Watkins in Los Angeles Monday. But Watkins will likely only confirm what has already been diagnosed.
