Report: Buchholz won't throw off mound for 5-6 weeks

Share

So, how long will Clay Buchholz be shut down after getting the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection in his right elbow from renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews?

Ian Browne of MLB.com reports that Buchholz estimates it'll be 5-6 weeks until he can throw off a mound.

That puts Buchholz back on a mound around Sept. 1. Not in a game, just throwing off a mound. Optimistically, that timetable would make a return to the Red Sox in mid-September.
