Buchholz said he's pitched through pain for most of the season but it became more difficult to do so in the past week. He will huddle with the coaching staff in the coming days to put a rehabilitation plan together. He said there are no plans to have an MRI at this point.
"It's been getting worse and worse and we decided to give it a rest," Buchholz said.
The right-hander said his injury had been affecting his ability to throw offspeed pitches, which he relies on heavily.
"Hopefully this rest will help it out," he said.
Buchholz was 1-1 with a 3.12 ERA in 23 games pitched. He allowed 20 hits and nine earned runs in 23 2/3 innings.
