Buchholz felt very good after throwing on Monday, but a follow-up session yesterday was cancelled and Buchholz will have another medical consultation either tomorrow or early next week.
Terry Francona was asked this morning if Buchholz might be lost for the rest of the season.

A source told Ken Rosenthal that the Red Sox were "all over" Bedard. The Mariners have had scouts watching both Pawtucket (AAA) and Portland (AA).
