Clay Buchholz struggling with fastball velocity
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz hinted he's struggling to find consistency with his fastball velocity and it's a big reason why he is 0-2 with a 7.71 ERA through four starts, per WEEI.com.

"Whenever you just feel loose and throw a baseball, last year it was coming out 92-93 every time I threw a fastball. This year it's 89, 92, 91, whatever it is," Buchholz said after Monday's loss vs. Baltimore. "It's different and it's hard to wrap your mind around it, but I think it's in the process of coming. It stinks waiting on it."

Injuries have been a big concern for Buchholz in the past, but he contends he's healthy.

"My body feels fine. The body feels good. Nothing's hurting," Buchholz said. "My body feels actually a lot better now than it did the last week of spring training. I feel like I was going through a little bit of a dead period. It's just a matter of getting that arm strength back up to what it used to be.

"[The arm strength is] not quite there. It feels like it's getting better. I feel like later, well there wasn’t really late in the game today, but later in the past two games, if I wanted to reach back, there were 92s and 93s there. That usually comes pretty easy. I'm struggling with that a little bit right now. But that'll come together. It's still pretty early. We still have a lot of time left in this first half to pull it all together and go from there."

Clay Buchholz lasts just 2 1/3 innings in loss to Orioles
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz had his shortest outing of the season during Monday's 7-6 loss vs. Baltimore. Buchholz (0-2) allowed six runs on seven hits and one walk, while recording one strikeout in 2 1/3 innings.

Buchholz was locked in early, allowing no hits and just one walk through two scoreless innings. But the game started to unravel for him in the third inning.

Buchholz allowed the first five batters in the third inning to reach base via singles, which produced three runs. His first out finally came against Adam Jones, who grounded into a fielder's choice. However, Nelson Cruz still scored, extending the Boston deficit to 4-0.

Steve Clevenger followed with an RBI double and Jonathan Schoop chased Buchholz with an RBI single. Burke Badenhop then entered the game to end the threat by getting Ryan Flaherty to ground into a double play.

Monday was the second time this season Buchholz allowed six earned runs. His ERA jumped from 5.51 to 7.71. His next scheduled start is for Saturday at Toronto.

Clay Buchholz strikes out six in quality start Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz surrendered three runs (two earned) on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out six in his team's 6-4 win over the White Sox Wednesday.

Buchholz ended the first inning in a 1-1 tie thanks to a throwing error, and the two teams played to a stalemate until the Red Sox starter gave up a two-run home run in his sixth and final frame.  He didn't take the loss after the Red Sox tied things up in the ninth inning. Buchholz owns a 5.51 ERA and 15:2 K:BB ratio in 16 1/3 innings. He's in line to take on the Orioles at home Monday.

Clay Buchholz improves, still drops first decision
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz didn't get much help from his teammates Thursday, in a 4-1 loss to the Yankees.

Buchholz allowed two runs in the fourth inning, though both were unearned, thanks to an inning-opening error that got the Yankees going. He allowed two more runs -- both earned -- in the fifth, though that didn't matter much as the offense provided just one run of support.

Buchholz was ultimately charged with two earned runs over six innings of work, on seven hits. He walked none and struck out six batters, while throwing 64 of 94 pitches for strikes.

Buchholz was much improved in his second start, but still has a 6.97 ERA in 10 1/3 innings to open the season. He has an 0-1 record heading into his third start, scheduled for Wednesday against the White Sox.
