BOSTON -- Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz is planning to see Dr. James Andrews for a lingering neck strain that's had him on the disabled list since early June.

Manager John Farrell made the announcement before Sunday night's game against the New York Yankees. He said the 28-year old Buchholz was expected to be on the field throwing when the team took batting practice, but he was going for a second opinion on Monday regardless of the outcome of his workout.

Buchholz was off to a tremendous start this season, going 9-0 with a 1.71 ERA before the injury.

He suffered the injury after landing awkwardly, making plays on two grounders in a game against the Los Angeles Angels on June 8.
