The Globe’s Amalie Benjamin joins NESN’s Heidi Watney before Wednesday’s matinée to chat about the progress of David Ortiz, Bartolo Colon, and Clay Buchholz.
A quick breakdown of their chat:
- Ortiz: The Red Sox hope to get him back in the cage Friday and crank up the intensity for a potential rehab stint after the All-Star game.
- Colon: After experiencing some discomfort, the Red Sox have backed off on Colon’s pitching program to ensure he doesn’t re-aggravate his oblique injury. He will throw again on Friday, but will take the All-Star break off.
- Buchholz: After a stint in the minor leagues to work on his arm slot (with an eye on helping his fastball command), Buchholz will rejoin the team in time to start Friday’s game.
