Terry Francona just said Clay Buchholz would not pitch in Tampa and is likely to be placed on the DL retroactive to last Sunday. They’re not willing to take a chance he really pops that hamstring.
No announcement yet, but Felix Doubront is a good candidate to start on Tuesday.
Francona also spoke a little cryptically when asked about Mike Lowell, indicating some sort of decision was pending.
Could it be his release? That would make sense for all parties.
I asked Lowell. “Possibly,” he said. “We’ll see.”
