    • Phillies' David Buchanan: Could start Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Buchanan had his start skipped Tuesday at Triple-A Tuesday and is a strong candidate to start Thursday at Colorado, Matt Gelb of the Philly Inquirer reports. Buchanan, who had a 6.99 ERA in 15 starts last season, has minimal fantasy value if he does indeed get the start for the Phillies at Coors Field. Buchanan currently holds a 4.77 ERA in 88.2 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

    • Buchanan and Alec Asher were optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Tuesday. With Buchanan and Asher bowing out of the race, Philadelphia is left with Vince Velasquez, Brett Oberholtzer and Adam Morgan competing for the No. 5 starter spot. The 26-year-old Buchanan was one of the worst starters in the majors last season, posting a 6.99 ERA, 1.85 WHIP, 5.33 FIP and 44:29 K:BB across 74.2 innings (15 starts).

    • Buchanan will compete for the fifth spot in the Phillies' rotation this spring, the team's official site reports. Buchanan went 2-9 with a 6.99 ERA and a 44:29 K:BB ratio in 74.2 innings for the Phillies last season. He will compete with Vincent Velasquez, Brett Oberholtzer, Adam Morgan, Alec Asher and Severino Gonzalez this spring. He will need a huge spring to have any real shot at earning a rotation spot after last season's struggles.

    • Phillies starter David Buchanan surrendered two runs (one earned) on six hits over 6 2/3 innings Sunday against the Marlins. He struck out seven and walked one. Buchanan finished the season on a high note. He had a 3.16 ERA and an 18:8 K:BB ratio in 25 2/3 innings over his last five starts. Overall, he finishes the year 2-9 with a 6.99 ERA and a 44:29 K:BB ratio in 74 2/3 innings. He won't be guaranteed a rotation spot next spring, so he will need to perform well to avoid a trip back to Triple-A.

    • Phillies pitcher David Buchanan gave up two runs (one earned) on seven hits in five innings against Miami on Wednesday. He struck out three and didn't factor into the decision. Buchanan's now turned in consecutive non-terrible starts, which is more than we could have reasonably expected from a guy who even now has an atrocious 7.96 ERA. Even after he allowed just three earned runs in his last 11 innings, it's hard to recommend him in his last start or two of the year.
