Buchholz inches closer to possible Tuesday start

BALTIMORE -- Right-hander Clay Buchholz continued to improve on Friday, throwing to about 90 feet, and manager John Farrell said that if he shows the same improvement on Saturday, he'll be in line for a bullpen session on Sunday and could be able to start on Tuesday.

"He felt encouraged today over yesterday," Farrell said before Friday's game. "Everything's moving in the right direction."

Farrell said on Thursday that the Red Sox had moved Buchholz from his scheduled Sunday start in the finale of the Baltimore series to Tuesday in order to give him two additional days.

But he also emphasized that Tuesday's start isn't locked in, and they won't send Buchholz out there until everything feels right.
