More injury news for the Red Sox as the team has decided to place SP Clay Buchholz on the 15-day disabled list with what is being called “gastrointestinal issues”.
Buchholz was already scheduled to miss his start in the series finale against the Braves on Sunday, but after being hospitalized due to intestinal bleeding, the Sox decided to take him out of action for the next two weeks. In 14 starts this season, Buchholz is 8-2 with a 5.53 ERA and 58 K in 86.1 IP.
Aaron Cook will get the ball on Sunday in his first stint off the DL. His first and only start of the season came back on May 5th against Baltimore where he suffered a knee laceration that sent him to the disabled list. He made a rehab start with Pawtucket on Monday where he allowed 3 ER in 4.0 IP. Instead of making one more rehab start as planned, Cook will start in place of Buchholz in Boston’s series finale against Atlanta.
