Clay Buchholz Injury Update: Red Sox Pitcher Has Esophagitis, In Stable Condition In Hospital

Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz is in stable condition in the hospital on Tuesday but has been diagnosed with esophagitis. He was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Sunday after being scratched from his start. The internal bleeding Buchholz was suffering from was thought to be caused by anti-inflammatory medication, according to reports that came out after Buchholz was admitted to Mass General.

The Red Sox said in a statement:

"Clay Buchholz has esophagitis, which led to an erosion of the esophagus and an associated gastrointestinal bleed. He has been evaluated and observed at Mass General Hospital. Clay is doing well and is expected to make a full recovery." (via Red Sox)

The right-hander is 8-2 on the season with a 5.53 ERA. He has not pitched since June 19 and will finish the month of June at 4-0 with a 2.40 ERA in 30 innings of work.
