Buchholz, Ellsbury Rehab with PawSox Sunday
After seven innings of work last night, Jacoby Ellsbury finished 0-for-4 with a strikeout looking, two ground-outs, and a foul pop-out. Today the All-Star outfielder will once again lead off for the PawSox and play center field.
He’s joined this afternoon by Boston teammate Clay Buchholz who, according to RedSox.com, “is on track to return to Boston’s rotation during a three-game series on the road vs. the Rays that begins on Friday.”
Scheduled to start and pitch three innings today, Buchholz last pitched for the Red Sox on June 19 before suffering a stomach illness which resulted in a short stay at the hospital and being placed on the disabled list.
Similar to the last day of school, today is the final game before the three-day All-Star break and will also be televised on NESN. First pitch this afternoon from McCoy is set for 1:05, radio pre-game coverage kicks off at 12:50.
Talk with you then.
