Reliever Bailey to haveseason-ending surgery

BOSTON (AP) — Red Sox reliever Andrew Bailey will have season-ending right shoulder surgery this week.

Manager John Farrell said before Sunday night’s game against the Yankees that Bailey’s surgery will be performed by Mets team physician Dr. David Altchek on Wednesday in New York.

Bailey was placed on the 15-day disabled list Friday night with a strained shoulder.

The reliever missed almost all of last season after right thumb surgery during spring training.

Buchholz to visitDr. Andrews

Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz is planning to see Dr. James Andrews for a lingering neck strain that’s had him on the disabled list since early June.

Manager John Farrell made the announcement before last night’s game against the New York Yankees. He said the 28-year old Buchholz was expected to be on the field throwing when the team took batting practice, but he was going for a second opinion on Monday regardless of the outcome of his workout.

Buchholz was off to a tremendous start this season, going 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA before the injury.

He suffered the injury after landing awkwardly, making plays on two grounders in a game against the Los Angeles Angels on June 8.
