Clay Buchholz Waiting Until He Feels 100 Percent Before Returning To Red Sox
" BOSTON (CBS) — It says a lot about the greatness of the first two-plus months of Clay Buchholz’s season that he earned a spot on the AL All-Star team despite not pitching since June 8.

Yet if there was any hope that hanging around baseball’s best players this week would give Buchholz the itch to get back on the mound, that doesn’t appear to be the case.

Buchholz spoke to reporters Monday, and he said inflammation in his neck continues to lead to soreness after throwing, so he isn’t rushing in any way to get back out onto the mound. He said even if he felt he was at 90 percent, he wouldn’t pitch.

“I don’t want to. If it was a do-or-die situation, then yeah, of course,” Buchholz said in New York, according to MassLive . “If it was September, we’re pushing, that’s what you pitch for is to pitch in those situations. Not everybody’s 100 percent doing that pitching through the whole year anyways "
