Extra Bases

Buchholz headed to DL

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.”
