OALKAND, Calif. -- Clay Buchholz (shoulder) threw a bullpen session as planned before Sunday’s game, and he’s scheduled to throw another over the All-Star break as he nears his return to the rotation.

Manager John Farrell said he planned to talk with shortstop Stephen Drew (strained right hamstring) about how many rehab games he will require before returning. The manager mentioned Drew could possibly play with Portland as early as Thursday.

Farrell did not reveal his rotation coming out of the All-Star break.

David Ortiz received quite a gift from teammate Jonny Gomes for breaking the all-time hits record for designated hitters – a gigantic bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from Orin Swift winery in Napa.
