Good News On Buchholz

This is from the Associated Press...

"The Red Sox are about to get one of their injured stars back. Boston manager Terry Francona said Saturday that All-Star pitcher Clay Buchholz, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring, will start Wednesday in Oakland.

Buchholz, who is 10-4 with a 2.45 ERA in 15 starts this season, was hurt running the bases in San Francisco on June 26. He went to the All-Star game Tuesday, but was unavailable to pitch. The right-hander tossed 3 2-3 innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket at Syracuse on Friday.

"Being out for three weeks, getting back on the mound felt good," Buchholz said Saturday. "I felt like I got my velocity back. That's what I went out there to do."

Now it's on to the return of Josh Beckett. Yes, our five man rotation with Wakefield waiting for emergency starts was just how it was originally planned.
