Terry Francona made his weekly appearance on The Big Show on Wednesday. The Sox manager was asked about Clay Buchholz, who threw a 32-pitch simulated game at Fenway Park on Tuesday. Buchholz has been on the disabled list since June 16 with a stress fracture in his back.
"He's a little sore, not sore in his back, but sore on his side, which we all thought," Francona said. "He's extending a little more than he has in the past. He will do this again either tomorrow or Friday, we're trying to figure out what is in his best interest."
