Clay Buchholz threw well on flat ground from 90 feet "with increasing intensity" Wednesday according to Red Sox manager John Farrell.
Farrell said Buchholz felt good after the session.
Buchholz reiterated that Buchholz will throw three bullpen sessions, a simulated game and then at least one minor-league rehab start.
Farrell said Buchholz is "moving in the right direction."
But ask for a possible date of return and whether the "4 for 5" starts in the regular season is plausible as Dr. Andrews told Buchholz, "I haven't gotten to the point of a date," Farrell said. "I look at it is as those three phases along the way and whatever date that brings us to. Clay will be on the mound when he's ready. I think it's premature to start to forecast any kind of time range."….
