Clay Buchholz To Miss Start

Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz has been scratched from his scheduled start Monday against the Philadelphia Phillies for precautionary reasons after feeling discomfort in his right collarbone. Alfredo Aceves will start in his place.

Buchholz expressed little concern over the issue and feels he will start in a few days and avoid being skipped in the rotation entirely. He said he slept wrong on his right side while cradling his daughter after the team returned from Chicago on Wednesday, and woke up with some minor irritation.
