The Red Sox placed starting pitcher Clay Buchholz on the disabled list Sunday with what manager Bobby Valentine called a "gastrointestinal situation."
The team is still awaiting more particulars on the issue, but Valentine said the Sox are "hoping that we'll get him back at the end of the 15 days."
According to a series of tweets from WHDH's Joe Amorosino, Buchholz was hospitalized with intestinal bleeding  and is looking at a recovery time of 10-14 days. Amorosino also reports that anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen are likely the cause of the intestinal bleeding. Valentine would not say whether or not Buchholz was in the hospital Sunday, though he did acknowledge that the pitcher had been at an earlier point and hasn't been with the the team for the last two days.
The manager said he was unaware of how the issue came about, but that it wasn't something Buchholz was dealing with when he made his last start Tuesday against the Marlins.
"Actually, after his last start he was OK," Valentine said. "The next day I think he was OK and then he started feeling something."
Buchholz is 8-2 with a 5.53 earned run average and 58 strikeouts in 14 starts this season. Aaron Cook is starting Sunday against the Braves in his place.
