Buchholz To Start Opening Day; Vazquez Put On 60-Day DL; Mookie!

Clay Buchholz will start on Opening Day, next Monday afternoon, in Philadelphia.

Christian Vazquez was placed on the 60-DL with a sprained right elbow. The Red Sox immediately added to their catching depth by trading for Sandy Leon of the Nationals.

Koji Uehara (hamstring) has not pitched since March 14 and will likely not be on the Opening Day roster. Edward Mujica will be the closer.

Mookie Betts continues to tear it up. In 14 games, Betts is hitting .452/.477/.857 for a 1.334 OPS. He leads the Grapefruit League with 11 extra-base hits, is second with 36 total bases, and is tied for second with 19 hits.
