Terry Francona and the Red Sox have had some problems putting together a full lineup as of late — at least one that compares to the lineup that is usually sent out, arguably the best in baseball.
However, the lineup should start to round back into form within a few days, as David Ortiz and Jacoby Ellsbury begin to work their way back.
One long-term rehab to keep an eye on, though, is that of Clay Buchholz. The right-hander is continuing to rehab a stress fracture in his back. Heidi Watney gave an update on his status on Monday, and she said that he continues to progress well and may even start to do some throwing within the coming days.
Also, as she pointed out, Buchholz is still working hard with the idea of hopefully rejoining the Red Sox in time for the playoffs.
