BOSTON (CBS) — Clay Buchholz traveled to Florida to see renowned specialist Dr. James Andrews on Monday, and the report was a good one for Buchholz and the Red Sox.

Manager John Farrell announced prior to Monday night’s game that Dr. Andrews found no structural damage in Buchholz’s neck or shoulder. That is in line with what Red Sox doctors had found in Buchholz’s MRI, but the righty wanted a second opinion for “peace of mind,” according to Farrell.

As for a return, no date is set in stone. Buchholz will continue throwing and will eventually need to be able to throw off a mound before making at least one — but likely more than one — rehab start in the minors.

Buchholz, 28, has not pitched for the Red Sox since June 8. At the time, he was 9-0 with a 1.171 ERA and 1.02 WHIP. He was selected to the AL All-Star team for the second time in his career, despite not pitching for the month leading up to the break.
