Red Sox say Clay Buchholz underwent successful meniscus surgery on his right knee Tuesday.

We wish him nothing but the best in his recovery which should be a couple of months just to err on the side of caution. He is expected to be ready for spring training in 2015.

The Red Sox have not yet decided whether they'll tender Koji Uehara a qualifying offer for next season.

While Uehara opened the season strong, wear and tear on his shoulder took center stage and he collapsed down the stretch. it got so bad that the Sox pulled him from the bullpen and replaced him with Edward Mujica. You can bet they'll run a ton of tests on his arm and shoulder before making the decision to present him with a qualifying offer.

Will Middlebrooks (wrist) is expected to return to complete health with rest. That said, the 26-year-old has decided against the team’s recommended course of going to winter ball.

Many around Boston feel that Middlebrooks future with the club could be in flux given his poor play, constant injuries and now his refusal to play winter ball. The Red Sox have prospect Garin Cecchini almost ready to take over at the third base position and the option to move Xander Bogaerts back to third could also be in play with former first round pick Deven Marrero coming off an impressive season at Triple-A and is much better defensively.

Clay Buchholz will have a routine surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his knee Tuesday.

Buchholz had the worst season of his eight year career in 2014 going 8-11 with a 5.34 ERA over 170.1 innings. Inconsistencies and injuries have plagued Clay throughout his career who has the talent to be a top of the rotation starter when everything is going right for him. The Red Sox have a ton of pitching talent coming up through the minors and it would not shock me if Buchholz tenure with the Red Sox could be coming to an end when his contract is up at the end of the 2015 season.

Mookie Betts went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI and a stolen base in the Red Sox loss to the Yankees on Sunday.

The Boston uber-prospect left the organization with a good taste in their mouth with today's performance. They want, and expect, more games like this from their heralded prospect. In 52 games, he hit at a .291 clip, with five home runs, 18 RBIs, and seven stolen bases. He could make for an intriguing fantasy play when he gets a full-season workload like he should in 2015. Target Betts in your draft next year, as he should be a prime candidate for double digit homers and steals.

Clay Bucholz fell to 8-11 after allowing four runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts over six innings in the Red Sox loss to the Yankees on Sunday. 

Buchholz was up-and-down all year, and today was a down start. If his 8-11 record isn't negative enough, he ends the campaign with a 5.34 ERA. He was dominant in 2013 until getting hurt, and 2014 was a much different year for the Boston starter. He didn't strikeout as many batters this year and he walked a bunch of guys. It was a down year for him in 2014, but look at him later in 2015 drafts, but understand its a roller coaster with the 30-year old.

Red Sox SS Xander Bogaerts is out Sunday with a hamstring strain.

He played on Saturday so the injury is nothing serious. Bogaerts started the year off on fire, but cooled down significantly and has a lot of question marks heading into the 2015 season.
