Clay Buchholz will not return Tuesday

2 Comments

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz is unlikely to come off of the disabled list to start on Tuesday as he felt tightness in his trapezius muscle after throwing from flat ground, reports Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald. The right-hander suffered the injury during his start against the Angels on June 8. CSN New England’s Sean McAdam says Buchholz will now need a rehab stint to get back in shape before being activated.

Buchholz is a perfect 9-0 with an MLB-best 1.71 ERA in 12 starts. In his absence, Alfredo Aceves has made two spot starts, allowing two runs over 11 innings. Allen Webster, back in the Majors for a third time this year, also makes a spot start tonight against the Tigers.

Not much has changed with the All-Star voting in the National League this week. All of the same leaders from last week are leading this week. Matt Kemp and Bryce Harper have flip-flopped at 2-3 in the outfield voting but it’s still all the same.

Buster Posey leads at catcher, first base is Freddie Freeman, second is his Braves teammate Ozzie Albies, third is Nolan Arenado, short is Brandon Crawford and Nick Markakis leads the outfield trio.
