Clay Buchholz has not been able to start sine June 8.

Clay Buchholz was scheduled to throw Tuesday morning in a session that could determine if the Red Sox starter lands on the disabled list.

Manager John Farrell said the workout would include “increased intensity” compared to what Buchholz threw in Baltimore last weekend. The coaching staff planned to evaluate the pitcher’s progress to determine whether he will be available later this week or is due for a trip to the disabled list.

Buchholz has not pitched since he left a start on June 8 with neck stiffness.

“Today would be the day for him to get off the mound if he’s going to be eligible sometime later this week,” Farrell said. “If not, we’re probably looking at a roster move.”

The Red Sox were set to host the Rays for a day-night doubleheader Tuesday, with the first game at 1 and the nightcap at 7.

Farrell said it is “not likely” the roster move would occur between games on Tuesday.

The Red Sox need a starter for Saturday’s game.

“For [Buchholz] to be able to make that start, he would need to bullpen today, Thursday, and then start Saturday,” Farrell said. “If the bullpen can not be executed today, then we will make a move.”

Farrell said the organization narrowed in on two candidates as potential fill-ins: Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster.
