Buchholz On DL; Doubront Gets Start

Clay Buchholz will be put on the disabled list with a strained lower left hamstring and lefty Felix Doubront will start tomorrow night against the Rays.

Buchholz says he feels no discomfort when pitching.
I don't feel anything jogging or throwing. It's been going from a jog to a sprint [fielding a bunt or covering first] and there's still a little tightness. We're still throwing on flat ground every day to get a little bit more time.
The move will be retroactive to June 27, so Buchholz could return on July 15 -- the first game after the All-Star break.

Doubront made his debut against the Dodgers on June 18, allowing six hits and three earned runs in five innings.
