Hot9/17/2014 10:08:00 AM
Description: After a dreadful start to the season, Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz has been on fire of late.
Insight: He is 3-0 with 1.66 ERA and 0.83 WHIP over his past three starts. Even with a tough matchup in Pittsburgh, Buchholz could be worth a flier for a daily fantasy play.
 
Hot9/7/2014 9:21:00 AM
Description: Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz pitched six and 1/3 innings, allowed two runs on four hits, struck out five and walked two in a victory over the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Insight: Buchholz has come on strong to end the season, which is nice to see because he had much stronger first halves to the season the last two years. Buchholz is 2-0 with a 1.90 ERA in his last three starts. For the season, however, Buchholz has been pretty disappointing, going 7-8 with a 5.29 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 146 1/3 innings.
 
Hot8/31/2014 5:09:00 PM
Description: Boston starter Clay Buchholz pitched a complete game shutout, allowing three hits, striking out six and walking none as the Red Sox beat the Rays, 3-0, on Sunday.
Insight: Buchholz may be coming off the best two starts of his season. He threw eight and 1/3 innings against Toronto last week and allowed three runs on four hits in a no-decision. Buchholz out did himself, completing the shutout for his sixth victory on Sunday. He is 6-8 with a 5.40 ERA and 1.42 WHIP this year.
 
8/25/2014 10:50:00 PM
Description: Boston starter Clay Buchholz took a shutout and a 3-0 lead into the ninth inning Monday at Toronto, but he loaded the bases with one out and closer Koji Uehara allowed the Blue Jays to tie the score.
Insight: Buchholz continues to be incredibly inconsistent. He's given up at least six runs three times in his last six starts but allowed three or less and lasted seven or more innings in the other three during that span.
 
Cold7/28/2014 10:31:00 PM
Description: Since he struck out 12 in a three-hit shutout on July 13, Boston starter Clay Buchholz has given up 23 hits, eight walks and 15 earned runs in his last 17 innings. The Blue Jays had seven hits, four walks and seven runs against him in five innings Monday night.
Insight: Buchholz posted a 23/1 K/BB, a 2.73 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP in his first 29 2/3 innings after returning from the disabled list, but his struggles from earlier this season have returned. He's 5-7 with a 5.87 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP in 96 2/3 innings.
 
Hot7/13/2014 5:42:00 PM
Description: Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz threw his seventh career complete game and fifth career shutout Sunday at Houston.
Insight: Buchholz (4-5, 5.42 ERA, 1.51 WHIP) struck out 12, walked none and allowed just three hits. He appears to have figured out what was wrong with him earlier this season while he was on the disabled list. The right-hander has posted a 23/1 K/BB, a 2.73 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP in 29 2/3 innings since he returned.
 
7/1/2014 10:45:00 PM
Description: Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz gave up one run on five hits and didn't walk a batter in 6 1/3 innings Tuesday against the Cubs.
Insight: In his first start back from the knee injury that kept him out for a month, Buchholz went 7 1/3 innings and allowed four runs at Seattle, but he also gave up three home runs. Tuesday's start was much more encouraging, but we still don't recommend owning the 29-year-old outside of deep AL-only leagues.
 
6/24/2014 7:46:00 PM
Description: Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz will take the hill Wednesday against Seattle. SOURCE: MLB Network
Insight: He missed about a month with a hyperextended knee. Though Buchholz (2-4, 7.02 ERA) has struggled most of the season, he pitched very well in his last rehab outing for Triple-A Pawtucket (6 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 5 K's, 2 BB).
 
Cold6/19/2014 9:26:00 PM
Description: Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz's next start will be in the majors, according to Tim Britton of the Providence Journal. The date is yet to be determined.
Insight: While Buchholz is officially listed as out with a hyperextended knee, his struggles likely have more to do with him being on the disabled list. In 10 starts, Buchholz posted a 7.02 ERA, allowed 75 hits in 50 innings and struck out 39 while walking 24. Buchholz will replace either Brandon Workman or Rubby De La Rosa in the rotation.
 
Cold6/9/2014 6:02:00 PM
Description: Red Sox starter Clay Buchholz will throw a rehab start Friday with Triple-A Pawtucket, according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal.
Insight: While Buchholz is officially listed as out with a hyperextended knee, his struggles likely have more to do with him being on the disabled list. In 10 starts, Buchholz posted a 7.02 ERA, allowed 75 hits in 50 innings and struck out 39 while walking 24. His return will bump either Brandon Workman or Rubby De La Rosa from the rotation.
 
Cold6/6/2014 11:07:00 AM
Description: The Red Sox decided against having Clay Buchholz pitch a simulated game Monday, instead opting to help the struggling right-hander work on his mechanics in a 35-pitch bullpen session Wednesday. Source: Ian Browne, MLB.com.
Insight: While Buchholz is officially listed on the DL with a hyperextended knee, the club has now made it clear they're attempting to work out the kinks that have led to the righty's miserable season. In 10 starts, Buchholz posted a 7.02 ERA, allowed 75 hits in 50 innings and struck out 39 while walking 24. The Red Sox likely will send Buchholz on a rehab assingment once he pitches the rescheduled sim game Saturday.
 
Cold5/28/2014 7:57:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have officially placed right-hander Clay Buchholz on the 15-day DL. SOURCE: Ricky Doyle, NESN
Insight: The team is saying Buchholz (2-4, 7.02 ERA) has a hyperextended knee but we think his placement on the DL has more to due with flawed mechanics than anything. Buchholz had trouble finding his landing spot in his most recent start against the Braves and didn't seem to have any confidence in his pitches. Alex Wilson has been called up from Triple-A Pawtucket to take his place on the active roster.
 
Cold5/27/2014 5:23:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox say that Clay Buchholz has a hyperextended knee, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe. He'll throw a bullpen session Wednesday and is questionable for Saturday's start.
Insight: Buchholz has a 7.02 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP in 50 innings this season after walking eight batters and giving up six runs in three innings Monday. Manager John Farrell was noncommittal about Buchholz' next start after the game, so it's a little convenient that the knee injury popped up Tuesday.
 
Cold5/26/2014 7:53:00 PM
Description: Red Sox manager John Farrell was noncommittal about Clay Buchholz' next start, according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Insight: The Red Sox will discuss a plan of action for Buchholz after he walked eight batters and gave up six runs in three innings Monday. He has a 7.02 ERA and a 1.98 WHIP in 50 innings this season.
 
5/9/2014 10:06:00 PM
Description: Boston starter Clay Buchholz has allowed five more earned runs in 36 1/3 innings this year than he gave up in 108 1/3 last season.
Insight: The Rangers crushed Buchholz for 10 hits and six runs in 4 1/3 innings Friday night. His ERA and WHIP are now 6.44 and 1.73, respectively.
 
3/12/2014 11:19:00 AM
Description: WEEI's Rob Bradford is reporting that Clay Buchholz will open the season as Boston's No. 5 starter.
Insight: That might be the right place for Buchholz given how fragile he's been in the past. In seven major league seasons, the two-time All-Star has never made more than 29 starts.
 
10/30/2013 4:11:00 PM
Description: Boston righthander Clay Buchholz will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday in Game 6 against the Cardinals. SOURCE: Alex Speier, WEEI
Insight: He'll also be available for Game 7 if necessary. Buchholz tossed four innings of one-run ball Sunday night in Game 4. The one run he allowed was unearned.
 
10/26/2013 5:39:00 PM
Description: Clay Buchholz won't be at 100 percent when he makes his scheduled start Sunday against St. Louis. SOURCE: Jayson Stark, ESPN
Insight: Buchholz, a Cy Young contender early in the season, saw his velocity decline rapidly in his last start Saturday against Detroit. If his outing gets cut short, Felix Doubront may have to eat up a few innings before Boston can turn it over to the bullpen trio of Craig Breslow, Junichi Tazawa and Koji Uehara in the later innings.
 
10/25/2013 9:13:00 PM
Description: Boston manager John Farrell confirmed that Clay Buchholz will start Game 4 of the World Series Sunday at St. Louis, according to Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe.
Insight: Buchholz admitted that he's dealing with general arm fatigue and looked "uncomfortable" while throwing off flat ground Thursday, but he'll try to get through one more start this season. He'll oppose Lance Lynn after Jake Peavy and Joe Kelly square off in Game 3 Saturday.
 
10/23/2013 10:03:00 PM
Description: Boston manager John Farrell said Clay Buchholz is "ready to go" for the World Series. The right-hander will start Game 3 or 4. SOURCE: Rob Bradford, WEEI.com
Insight: WEEI.com reported Wednesday morning that Buchholz may be dealing with a physical issue, but it appears the team expects him to start one of the first two games in St. Louis. Jake Peavy will start the other game.
