Red Sox claim reliever Jean Machi off waivers, Clay Buchholz transferred to 60-day disabled list

The Red Sox claimed right-handed pitcher Jean Machi off waivers from the Giants and to make room for him on the 40-man roster, Clay Buchholz (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list. The expectation even before […]

Sox Move Clay to 60-Day Dl, Acquire LH Reliever

Sox Move Clay to 60-Day Dl, Acquire LH Reliever

The Red Sox made two related moves today—moving Clay Buchholz to the 60-day disabled list and acquiring "lefty specialist" Jean Machi for the struggling bullpen. As we predicted a while ago, this DL move effectively ends the season for Buchholz—who now wouldn't return (at the earliest) until mid-September. Machi is a left-handed reliever with pedestrian overall numbers (5.14 in 35 2015 innings), but he has held lefties to a .120 average.

HOUSTON — Late Wednesday afternoon word came down that Clay Buchholz’ trip to Dr. James Andrews revealed the same findings of the Red Sox medical personnel, a strained flexor muscle in his right elbow. The only change came with Buchholz’ decision to undergo a PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injection. Thursday Buchholz revealed what the timeline might […]

Buchholz expects recovery of 5-6 weeks

Clay Buchholz on his trip to see Dr. James Andrews. Sum up the trip: “It was basically re-affirming what we know. The one thing that came out of it that I was thinking a little differently about is the catch that I was playing. It probably wasn’t the right thing to do, in his mind. […]

Clay Gets Injection, May Be Done For Season

Clay Gets Injection, May Be Done For Season

Famed elbow guru Dr. James Andrews examined Clay Buchholz yesterday and gave the ailing righty an injection of 'platelet-rich plasma'. Andrews also recommended that Buchholz be shut down for at least another two weeks. Based on current projections (shutdown period, rehab), the earliest Buchholz could return to the Red Sox rotation would be sometime in September. But—given his track record—the next realistic time we see Clay will be February in Fort Myers. Deal with it.

Clay Buchholz avoids Tommy John Surgery, but Red Sox should still play it safe

Clay Buchholz has avoided the operating table. Hopefully with the right approach to his return, he can also avoid a disaster 2016. There's good news out of Pensacola. James Andrews has reaffirmed the original diagnosis on Clay Buchholz' elbow: his Ulnar Collateral Ligament is intact, meaning Tommy John Surgery is unnecessary, and leaving the pitcher facing nothing worse than a platelet rich plasma injection and a little downtime. In a world where the Red Sox are still in it to win it, the loss of Clay Buchholz for any number of games is slightly more concerning. But as far back as they are...

Sox Activate Blake Swihart, Designate Sandy Leon

(Exclusive FenwayNation Photo)The Red Sox have activated rookie catcher Blake Swihart from the disabled list and designated fellow backstop Sandy Leon for assignment. Swihart had been sidelined for the last twelve games with a bruised foot. Leon was picked up via trade during Spring Training from the Washington Nationals. Leon hit just .180 in 33 games, but served as the 'personal catcher' for Clay Buchholz during his pre-injury resurgence. Swihart is hitting .241 in 40 games so far this year and will share duties with veteran (and Andover High School graduate) Ryan Hanigan.

Boston Red Sox RHP Clay Buchholz not bothered when 'injury-prone' tag is associated with him

Injury-prone is not exactly an unfair description considering that when Buchholz went on the disabled list with a right flexor muscle strain last weekend it became his seventh trip to the DL during his nine-year career. During that span, he has spent a total of 260 games on the DL.
