Buchholz to have Saturday bullpen session
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to Thrusday night's game against the Rays that rehabbing pitcher Clay Buchholz will throw a full bullpen session on Saturday. 

Buchholz threw 15 pitches off the front of the bullpen mound and an additional 15 from the rubber on Thursday. The 27-year-old last pitched on June 16 and has been out with a stress fracture in his lower back. He is 6-3 this season with a 3.48 earned run average in 14 starts.

Francona also noted that left-hander Erik Bedard has yet to progress past playing light catch and is not close to a return. He is dealing with a strained lat muscle.

Lineup: Gonzalez, Ortiz return vs. Rays

The Red Sox will field their regular lineup on Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Rays and starter Jeremy Hellickson in the opener of a four-game set between the two teams in hottest pursuit of the AL wild card. The Rays arrive in Boston four games behind the Sox.

While David Ortiz was unable to play on Tuesday and Wednesday due to back spasms and Adrian Gonzalez left Wednesday's game after the sixth inning due to tightness in his left calf, both players will be in the lineup on Thursday, with Kevin Youkilis also remaining in the lineup despite his hip injury and sports hernia.

The presence of those three is significant given the degree to which Rays pitching has dominated the Sox this year. Tampa Bay's staff is 9-5 with a 2.69 ERA against the Sox this year; Sox hitters have just a .177 average and .609 OPS against the Rays pitchers.

For matchup information about how Hellickson has done against the Sox and how Rays hitters have done...

Francona: Red Sox can't panic
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Terry Francona joined The Big Show Thursday, saying that though the Red Sox are slumping and have let the Rays come within four games of them in the Wild Card race with the teams set to play a four-game set, the team can't panic. 

"We're four games up. We haven't played very well. They've played pretty well, but we don't need to go into this game thinking 'Oh my God, they're chasing us.' We need to play our game tonight," Francona said. "If they beat us, we need to come back and play tomorrow. 

"When you start thinking about what you did yesterday or the day before, it just wears on you and you kind of get that hangover effect. We don't need that. We're beat up enough right now. We've got to fight our way through it, and hopefully we can get close to full strength, and then you can really see our team. We may not be able to show that now, but that doesn't mean we can't win."

Pedroia: I'm not worried about Bard

Dustin Pedroia was a guest of the Mut and Merloni show on Thursday and discussed the recent struggles of Daniel Bard. The Sox reliever took the loss on Wednesday, allowing three runs in the eighth inning against the Blue Jays. Bard has a 17.36 ERA in five September appearances (4.2 innings pitched) and has walked five batters, already his highest total for any month this season.

"He's just got to slow everything down," Pedroia said. "I was trying to give him a breather yesterday with the sac bunt. You just got to take it one pitch at a time. When you speed the game up, that's when things kind of snowball on you. His stuff is some of the best in baseball. The furthest thing I'm worried about is Daniel Bard."
