Those itching to see Clay Buchholz back on the mound will have to hold on a little while longer. Manager John Farrell said Thursday that Buchholz will likely make two more minor league rehab starts before returning to the major league roster.
The right-hander struggled last Sunday in his first rehab start, walking three batters and allowing three runs (one earned) in 2/3 of an inning for Low-A Lowell. He’s expected to take the hill again this Friday at either Double-A or Triple-A and make one additional start next week before — if all goes to plan — making his return to the majors.
