Report: Clay Buchholz To Rejoin Red Sox After Successful Second Rehab Start


Boston Red Sox v Minnesota TwinsAfter a nightmarish first outing with Triple-A Pawtucket, Clay Buchholz redeemed himself with a successful second rehab start.

On Saturday, Buchholz gave up three runs on four hits — including two solo home runs — over 4 2/3 innings. But he completely turned himself around Thursday, tossing six shutout innings, while only allowing two hits and two walks and striking out five.

Buchholz had landed himself on the disabled list with a hyperextended knee.

Buchholz’s performance was apparently good enough to get his old spot in the Red Sox rotation back. The Providence Journal’s Tim Britton reported that Buchholz’s next start will be with Boston. No date has been set, but it will presumably be next week.

Aetna Strikeouts for A Cause

For every strikeout by a Red Sox pitcher at Fenway Park in June, Aetna will donate $250 to Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program. Through June 25, the donation mark stands at $30,000.

Through their continued efforts in the local community, Aetna is helping to build a healthier world -- one city and one strikeout at a time.
