Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz was out of the hospital and back in Boston's clubhouse at Fenway Park on Wednesday morning.

Buchholz hasn't pitched since June 19 and went on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with what the team later revealed to be esophagitis. He was admitted to the hospital Friday and in stable condition Tuesday, when the club released a statement saying he will make a full recovery.

Buchholz lost three pounds and said the ordeal was very scary. Before returning to the mound, he wants to rebuild the strength in his legs.

"I've felt pretty good for the last two days," Buchholz said. "[I have] to start slow."
