Buchholz has 'minor' hamstring tear

Only in the context of the Red Sox injury update does "lower hamstring tear" sound like good news. Well, it is if it's only "minor"!

Clay Buchholz left Saturday's game with what was called a knee injury, but the Boston Globe 's Peter Abraham reports the "minor lower hamstring tear."

Abraham says the Red Sox could avoid putting Buchholz on the disabled list by using the days off and starting him July 6. "This does not seem like a major concern," Abraham writes.

Another day, another injury for Red Sox

Victor Martinez Victor Martinez was the latest Red Sox player to leave a game in San Francisco early with an injury, breaking his left thumb.

Martinez took a foul ball off the left foot off the bat of Giants catcher Bengie Molina, but stayed in the game.

Martinez flew out in the third, but was replaced behind the plate by Jason Varitek in the bottom of the fourth.

The Red Sox are off Monday and he will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Boston.

Dustin Pedroia left Friday's game after fracturing a bone in his left foot when he fouled a ball off of it. Starter Clay Buchholz left Saturday's game in the second after hyperextending his left knee running the bases.

Boston did receive good news, as Buchholz's injury may not be as serious as once thought and he could still make his next start.

"He's a little black and blue in his knee, which means there's a little bit of bleeding," Red Sox manager Terry Francona told reporters . "Saying that, he feels pretty good. Pretty good range of motion."
