Buchholz rejoins Boston rotation as Wakefield hits DL

The big-league stay for Clay Buchholz will continue after all. According to Alex Speier of WEEI.com, Buchholz will be recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket and will start for Boston Wednesday night at Texas, taking the place of the injured Tim Wakefield, who will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain. The soon-to-be 25-year-old Buchholz made his 2009 major league debut on July 17 at Toronto, firing 5.2 innings of 1-run ball and earning the win before being sent back to Pawtucket after the game. He has gone 7-2 with a 2.36 ERA and 89 strikeouts in 99 innings for Pawtucket in 2009. Wakefield, a first-time All-Star this season at the age of 42, has gone 11-3 so far in 2009 with a 4.31 ERA. His 11 wins currently have him tied for the American League lead.
