BALTIMORE -- Red Sox manager Terry Francona said he misspoke when he told reporters over the weekend that Jon Lester would come off the disabled list next Tuesday to make a start against the Kansas City Royals. It will be next Monday against the Royals, Francona said here on Monday.

One other pitching note: Clay Buchholz threw from 120 feet Monday, Francona said. The next step, once he is comfortable from that distance, is to throw from the mound, the manager said.
