      Phillies' David Buchanan: Will compete for a starting job this spring

      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 SP David Buchanan performs well in final start Sunday

      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 SP David Buchanan goes five innings in no-decision

      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.

      Phillies SP David Buchanan gives up two runs in loss to Nationals

      Phillies starter David Buchanan (2-9) yielded five hits, two earned runs and two walks in a 4-0 loss to the Nationals on Tuesday. He struck out five. Compared to his previous three trips to the mound, Buchanan was more than serviceable but failed to receive any run support against a virtually unhittable Stephen Strasburg. The young right-hander had given up an incredible 31 hits and 22 earned runs over his previous nine innings after having turned in strong performances in seven of his first eight starts of the season. Although he gave up a gopher ball for the fifth consecutive start, Buchanan's five whiffs were a season best, and the 26-year-old does hold some promise after an encouraging rookie campaign in 2014 in which he mustered six victories and a 3.75 ERA over 20 starts.

      Phillies promote SP David Buchanan from Triple-A

      The Phillies have recalled right-hander David Buchanan, who could serve as their sixth starter, per the Philadelphia Inquirer. Buchanan has not exactly set the world on fire in that role, though his ERA is certainly easy to calculate. He is 2-7 with a 9.00 ERA after allowing 49 runs in 49 innings. He has been far better at Triple-A Lehigh Valley, where he has compiled a 2.31 ERA over his last four outings.

      Phillies' David Buchanan has historically bad start

      Pitcher David Buchanan had the worst start for a Phillies pitcher in 68 years, Tuesday against Arizona. Buchanan became the first Phillies pitcher to give up 11 earned runs in a start since Al Jurisch in 1947. Buchanan has a claim to an even worse outing than Jurisch, however, since he gave up all 11 runs in one inning. Buchanan allowed the first six batters in the second inning to reach. He gave up five singles, three doubles, two home runs, including a grand slam, and two walks in the second inning, while retiring just two batters. With 11 earned runs in 1 2/3 innings, Buchanan saw his ERA grown from 7.23 to 9.00, falling to 2-7 on the year.

      Phillies SP David Buchanan suffers another big loss on Thursday

      Phillies starter David Buchanan continued his struggles in 2015, as the got shelled by the Dodgers on Thursday. The right-hander allowed seven runs on 10 hits over just four innings of work. Buchanan (2-6, 7.23 ERA) was against the ropes from the very beginning, as the Dodgers scored three runs in the top of the first. The Phillies rallied back with five runs in the bottom half. But Buchanan allowed a three-run home run to Adrian Gonzalez in the second, and a solo shot to opposing pitcher Zack Greinke in the third. The Phillies tried to rally back, but they came up short in the 10-8 loss. This was the second time this season that Buchanan has allowed seven runs in an outing, and he has allowed fewer than three runs in two of his nine outings this season.
