Good morning baseball fans!
Boston has decided to send Clay Buchholz to the bullpen:
Buchholz, 31, has been terrible for the Red Sox this season, posting a 6.35 ERA while the team is 3-7 in his starts. Buchholz has allowed 12 home runs so far this year, trailing only Max Scherzer (14) and Chris Young (13) in that league-wide category.
Arizona placed Shelby Miller on the disabled list.
