It was announced by Red Sox manager John Farrell prior to the Sox’ game against Tampa Bay Monday that Dr. Andrews’ concurred with the team’s view that Buchholz’ injury was, indeed, inflammation.
It is believed the team’s unchanged approach toward the deadline stemmed its confidence that the results from the pitcher’s visit to Pensacola, Fla. to Dr. Andrews’ offices would be in line with what the team’s medical staff had determined.
Following the announcement regarding Buchholz’ status, reports surfaced that one of the premier starting pitchers on the market, Cubs starter Matt Garza, was being sent to the Texas Rangers. A source told WEEI.com last Thursday that Red Sox’ interest in Garza was limited all along due to their unwillingness to part with a top tier prospects due to what would have been perceived as a two-month rental.
