Daily Red Sox Links: Clay Buchholz, David Ortiz, Koji Uehara

Jim Rogash

Today's edition includes stories on Clay Buchholz's near no-no, David Ortiz's health status, and the energy and passion that Koji Uehara has bought to the table thus far this season.

Clay Buchholz was obviously locked in on Sunday, striking out a career high 11 batters in his near no-hitter. Here's more on the almost historic day. (Gordon Edes; ESPNBoston)

David Ortiz sat out of what would've been his third rehab appearance with Pawtucket due to a bug that he caught on Friday when he visited Boston's clubhouse. (Mike Scandura; MLB.com)

When the Red Sox signed Koji Uehara in the offseason, they expected the reliability that he has demonstrated thus, but they didn't know what Mike Napoli and Ryan Dempster knew about the righty: he's an uncontrollable ball of energy. (John Tomase; Boston Herald)

Despite recent struggles, Jackie Bradley remains confident. (Brian MacPherson; Providence Journal)

Here's yet another magnificent story from Tim Britton. This time about PawSox hitting coach Dave Joppie. (Tim Britton; Providence Journal)

With the confession that Wade Boggs would like to see the Red Sox retire his number, Chad Finn takes a look at who deserves the honor to have their number on the right field facade. (Chad Finn; Boston.com)

The Twitterverse exploded yesterday when Mets PR director Jay Horwitz tweeted that his club will play a tripleheader against the Rockies. It was fake, though. (Bill Baer; Hardball Talk)
