As far as Clay Buchholz is concerned, he's already had his All-Star break. So as many of his teammates left Fenway Park last night and headed for a few days of relaxation, Buchholz was planning to spend time at the facility to prepare for his next start.

Buchholz hasn't pitched since June 19, missing three starts after he was hospitalized with esophagitis, a medical condition that caused intestinal bleeding. He returned to the mound yesterday in a rehab start at Triple-A Pawtucket.
