Significant injuries in Boston sports history
Barry Chin/Globe Staff
Following his 17-7, 2.33 ERA breakout season in 2010, the Sox' third starter was having another fine year in the rotation in 2011. He earned victories in his final two starts before exiting his June 16 start with a sore lower back after five innings. Buchholz missed the final 3 1/2 months of the season, watching helplessly from the bench as the Red Sox season imploded in September due largely to a lack of rotation depth.
