Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (neck) has made some progress with his neck issue, but is likely to miss his next start. Buchholz is not expected to miss much time after that though. "He feels better today," said manager John Farrell. "Over the next couple of days, we'll get a better idea of when his next start will line up. Most importantly, he feels improved over (Sunday). He's going to be pushed back (from his scheduled bullpen) a couple of days at a minimum, but we'll take the same approach we did last time (when Buchholz got skipped after experiencing some soreness in his AC joint) - once everything is cleared up, that's when he's going to go.
Fantasy Tip: If you are counting on Buchholz this week, it would be wise to get him out of your starting lineup now and look for an alternative to fill the roster spot. It should be seen as positive news that he is not expected to miss much more than one start though.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell was encouraged with SP Ryan Dempster after his latest throwing session. "He's been pushing the ball, and from a timing standpoint in his delivery, he's just been out of sync somewhat," Farrell said. "His side session the other day was encouraging from the standpoint of being able to repeat that delivery, and that's what we'll need from him tomorrow."
Fantasy Tip: After starting strong, Dempster has had rough outings in his last three starts. Good news that he has made some adjustments to help get back on track in his next start.

Toronto Blue Jays OF Colby Rasmus ripped former manager John Farrell with recent comments about handling stressful situations. "I'm not trying to bash anybody by starting up crap, but I think John Gibbons has got a little bit of a better idea of how to handle it," Rasmus said, "just because I don't see him as a guy that's going to hit that panic button and get tight and into kind of freak-out mode."
