Boston Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz hit the team’s 15-day disabled list this weekend with what was termed a gastro-intestinal problem. Last night, Evan Drellich and Austin Laymance of MLB.com reported Buchholz remains in the hospital in stable condition with what’s been diagnosed as esophagitis.

In a statement, the Red Sox said Buchholz has esophagitis, "which led to an erosion of the esophagus and an associated gastrointestinal bleed." Boston concluded the statement by noting the 27-year-old is expected to make a full recovery.

At this point, it’s unknown how long of a stint on the DL Buchholz will require. After struggling to an ERA of 8.69 through April and 5.60 in May, the right-hander has rebounded nicely in June. Over his four starts, Buchholz has held opponents to eight runs on 24 hits and six walks over his 30 innings pitched with 25 strikeouts.

Veteran right-hander Aaron Cook took Buchholz’s spot in the Red Sox rotation this weekend.
