Clay Buchholz Diagnosed with Esophagitis

The Red Sox announced Tuesday what’s ailing starter Clay Buchholz, who was placed on the disabled list on Sunday.

“Clay Buchholz has esophagitis, which led to an erosion of the esophagus and an associated gastrointestinal bleed. He has been evaluated and observed at Mass General Hospital. Clay is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery.”

The original report said he faces a two-week recovery, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we don’t see him until after the All-Star Break.

From WebMD, esophagitis is defined as:

“An inflammation of the lining of the esophagus, the tube that carries food from the throat to the stomach. If left untreated, this condition can become very uncomfortable, causing problems with swallowing, ulcers, and scarring of the esophagus.”

Furthermore, Esophagitis is caused “by an infection or irritation in the esophagus” like candida (in women) or herpes.

Ew.
