Clay Buchholz will be back in the rotation Friday, when the Red Sox travel to New York to face the Yankees, after being scratched Monday against the Phillies with irritation in his collarbone.
He initially felt the pain upon returning to Boston after his most recent start in Chicago May 22. It was determined to be irritation in his right AC joint. He threw his normal bullpen session Saturday and played catch and long toss Monday.
Franklin Morales, who has been out since spring training with injuries to his back and a pectoral muscle, was activated, and Alfredo Aceves, who pitched six one-run innings in Monday’s 9-3 win over the Phillies, was sent back to Triple A Pawtucket. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
