Buchholz slated to start with Paw Sox, Bailey reassigned

RHP Clay Buchholz will start 2009 in Pawtucket, barring any set-backs for RHP Brad Penny, The Boston Globe's Adam Kilgore is reporting. Buchholz met with Manager Terry Francona after his start against Tampa Bay today and was told of the club's intentions. Until being roughed up today by the Rays, Buchholz had pitched brilliantly and it is unlikely that today's outing factored in the decision ... The Red Sox also officially announced the reassignment of 1B/OF Jeff Bailey to minor league camp, reinforcing the speculation that 1B/OF Chris Carter and INF Nick Green had the inside track on the final major league bench spots.
