Red Sox | Clay Buchholz to start Friday

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (collarbone) will return and make his start against the New York Yankees Friday, May 31, after being scratched Monday, May 27, with irritation in his collarbone. Buchholz was dealing with irritation in his right AC joint, and the move to sit him was purely precautionary. He played catch and long toss Monday and threw a bullpen Saturday, May 25. SP Franklin Morales, who was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, May 28, will work out of the bullpen.

Fantasy Tip: Since the move was precautionary, you should have no reservations about starting Buchholz on Friday against the Yanks. Morales could become an option in AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues if Ryan Dempster continues to struggle in the rotation.
