Red Sox | Jon Lester to start Sunday, Clay Buchholz Tuesday

Boston Red Sox SP Jon Lester will start on Sunday, June 16, against the Baltimore Orioles. SP Clay Buchholz (neck) has been pushed back to start one end of the team's doubleheader on Tuesday, June 18, versus the Tampa Bay Rays. P's Alfredo Aceves and Rubby De La Rosa (elbow) are the two candidates to start the other end of the twin bill.

Fantasy Tip: This just confirms what seemed likely a day ago. Lester is working on some mechanical issues and isn't the safest play; the BoSox were hoping for a couple of extra days to get him some extra work on the side. Aceves has pitched well in three starts and would seem to be the safer choice. Buchholz can't be considered a lock to make his start Tuesday, yet.
