Clay Buchholz has taken another step in the throwing program the Red Sox have mapped out as he recovers from the shoulder injury that’s sidelined him since June 8.
After being shut down last Thursday, Buchholz threw from 60 feet Tuesday with no issues.
“The throwing program will be outlined to 60, 90, 120 [feet] at a varying number of throws or progressive number of throws before we get him on the mound,” manager John Farrell said. “We don’t have a specific date that right now he would get back on the mound.”
Buchholz will travel with the team to Los Angeles this weekend when it starts its 10-game West Coast swing leading to the All-Star break.
