      Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Club option exercised by Red Sox

      Buchholz's $13 million club option will be excerised Tuesday, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports. Buchholz was productive through the first half of the season before succumbing to injuries, posting a 3.26 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 113.1 innings, so this decision wasn't entirely surprising. However, with new president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski now in the fold, some rumblings have begun to surface regarding the availability of Buchholz as it appears the new leader of the Red Sox may be interested in shedding some salary in order to chase a big-time pitcher in free agency this offseason. More news is sure to follow, so fantasy owners should stay tuned.

      Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz unlikely to pitch this season

      Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that it's 'doubtful' Clay Buchholz (elbow) will pitch in a game this week, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Buchholz was scheduled to throw another 20-to-25-pitch bullpen session Sunday as he continues to work his way back from the elbow injury, but it appears he's too far behind to get back on the field before the season draws to a close. Fortunately, Buchholz should remain on a relatively normal offseason training regimen as he prepares for a return to a starting role in 2016.

      Lovullo: Red Sox P Clay Buchholz could still pitch this year

      Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo has the following message for President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski in regard to the latter stating that pitcher Clay Buchholz is done for the year: Not so fast. Lovullo would like to see Buchholz back on the mound by the end of the season, even if it's for one appearance. Buchholz has received clearance to resume throwing after losing the last seven weeks to a strained right flexor. He made 24 tosses from 75 feet Wednesday. "He's reported that he's feeling very, very good," Lovullo told MLB.com. "We're definitely monitoring that. He's really encouraged by where he's at and how he's feeling. ... It would be great if he could throw one inning just to see where he's at from a mental standpoint, just to give him some confidence moving into the offseason. That's all contingent on him feeling good." If Buchholz is done for the season, he will end it at 7-7 with a strong 3.26 ERA.
