by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Buchholz is on the 15-day disabled list with a strained flexor tendon.

"Not that the medical staff here hasn’t told me exactly what's going on, but sometimes it’s good to hear from multiple people. That’s what it is," said Buchholz, per WEEI. "Just having somebody else give you a direct response, given who he is and what he's done over his career, it really the only option for me. If I was going to do it, that's the guy I was going to see. It's a peace of mind thing for me going forward. I don't expect him to find anything else that they've found. It's more that I can get going going forward and not have to look back."

Buchholz plans to try to play catch this weekend and will resume his throwing program after Wednesday's appointment.

Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz not expecting to be traded


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2015) With the Red Sox still struggling to get out of last place in the AL East, the chances of them becoming sellers at the July 31 trade deadline is increasing. With playoff teams looking for pitching help, Clay Buchholz could be on the radar of some teams.

However, it seems unlikely the Red Sox will deal the right-hander, who is one of Boston's better pitchers and has team options for 2016 ($13 million) and ’17 ($13.5 million). In fact, the Red Sox have shown no interest in trading Buchholz, major-league sources told WEEI.com.

Buchholz also doesn't believe he will be dealt and expects to remain with Boston.

“Yeah, unless something crazy happens I expect to be here,” he said regarding remaining a Red Sox through at least 2017. “I’ve always called this place home. [Trades] happen, and it’s happened to a lot of guys, where they walk in and they’re told their somewhere. That’s the business part of it and I think everybody understands that.

“I would love to be here throughout the next couple of years and everything goes well sign another extension. That’s sort of how I look at it.”
