Red Sox | Clay Buchholz may not make next start

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (collarbone) felt more tightness in the AC joint near his collarbone after throwing a bullpen Wednesday, May 29, and he's unsure if he can start Friday, May 31, against the New York Yankees. Now, he won't pitch until at least Sunday, June 2, as a precaution. As a result, SP Franklin Morales will jump into the rotation and start Thursday, May 30, against the Philadelphia Phillies. Buchholz will throw off a mound again Thursday to test himself. The team hasn't yet considered putting him on the disabled list, which could be backdated to May 23.

Fantasy Tip: Morales should be grabbed in AL-only leagues for now, and deep mixed leaguers can consider him if Buchholz has to be disabled.
