Buchholz's Back Not Getting Better

Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will fly to North Carolina this week for a consolation with back specialist Dr. Craig Brigham. The Red Sox had hoped that the time off would make it better, but every time he starts to workout and pitch it comes back. This could be really bad news for the Sox, as we saw what this type of injury did to Beckett last year. Buchholz is not a guy the Sox can afford to lose for the entire season, so I am hoping they can figure this out. My best guess is that he won't be back until early August. That means the Sox are really going to have to continue to rely on Andrew Miller and the Wake to get them through most of the season, unless of course the Wake's back goes out as well.
