Description: WEEI's Rob Bradford is reporting that Clay Buchholz will open the season as Boston's No. 5 starter.

Insight: Buchholz, a Cy Young contender early in the season, saw his velocity decline rapidly in his last start Saturday against Detroit. If his outing gets cut short, Felix Doubront may have to eat up a few innings before Boston can turn it over to the bullpen trio of Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara in the later innings.

Insight: Buchholz admitted that he's dealing with general arm fatigue and looked "uncomfortable" while throwing off flat ground Thursday, but he'll try to get through one more start this season. He'll oppose Lance Lynn after Jake Peavy and Joe Kelly square off in Game 3 Saturday.

Description: The feeling around Boston is that star righthander Clay Buchholz may not be healthy. SOURCE: Rob Bradford, WEEI
Insight: Buchholz has looked rather ordinary since coming back from a shoulder injury (3-1, 3.32 ERA in seven starts compared to 9-0, 1.71 before the injury) and it's fair to wonder if the Red Sox brought him back too soon. The two-time All-Star is slated to start one of the games in St. Louis though Felix Doubront will be on call if the Red Sox need to scratch Buchholz at the last minute.
 
9/22/2013 10:06:00 AM

Insight: Buchholz was only able to get out two of the seven batters he threw to. His fastball didn't even make it to 90 mph.

We'll see how he does in his next start Friday for Double-A Portland or Triple-A Pawtucket.

Originally expected to miss just one or two starts, the Red Sox ace has been out for nearly two months with no return date in sight. Fantasy owners had to know that this was a possibility heading into the season. The fragile righthander has only thrown over 100 innings twice in his seven-year career.
