Clay Buchholz gets rocked at home against Toronto
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz continued his struggles with another disappointing outing on Monday against the Blue Jays, dropping to 5-7 on the year. The right-hander was shelled for seven runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four over five innings of a 14-1 defeat.

Buchholz failed to make it out of the sixth inning for the first time since May 26. He owns a 5.87 ERA and a 1.56 ERA through 17 starts (96 2/3 innings). He will look to pick up the pieces and get back on track Sunday at home against the Yankees.

Clay Buchholz struggles against the Blue Jays
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz had a rough start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Buchholz allowed five runs, four earned, on six hits over six innings of work. He struck out one and walked four. Buchholz threw 99 pitches during the outing. Buchholz was spotted a three-run lead before he even took the mound, but couldn’t hold on. After putting the first two runners on in the first inning, Buchholz allowed a run-scoring double, an RBI groundout and another run-scoring double. After the first inning, the game was tied 3-3. 

Buchholz settled in at that point, tossing four scoreless frames. He ran out of gas in the sixth, giving up an RBI triple. Buchholz also wound up allowing a fifth run, but it was due to an error.

The loss dropped Buchholz to 5-6 on the year. His next start will come against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Analysis | 1405627271
Clay Buchholz changing things up
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

I've put off writing about Clay Buchholz all week. He's remained among the most viewed players during that time, which means somebody probably should write something in the way of analysis about him, but doggone it, I just don't know what to make of his 12-strikeout effort against the Astros Sunday.

I'm not particularly moved by it. I rarely am by one stellar start amid a slew of mediocre ones. But at the same time, I remember how good Buchholz was before his shoulder began to bother him last June and recognize that a turnaround has to begin somewhere.

Buchholz credited his performance Sunday to an improved changeup -- a pitch that was critical to his success last year but seldom used prior to his last four starts this year. According to BrooksBaseball.net, he's getting more swings and misses with it than any other pitch by far. So then, where were the strikeouts in his previous three starts?

The bottom line is I need to see more. The buildup to the 12-strikeout game is encouraging enough for me to go ahead and take a flier on Buchholz in a standard mixed league, but not if Jake Odorizzi, Danny Duffy or Jacob deGrom is still available. And chances are at least one of them is still available in yours.

Clay Buchholz goes the distance in win over Houston
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz twirled a gem and went the distance for his fourth win of the season Sunday afternoon against the Astros in Houston. The right-hander yielded three hits and no walks while striking out a season-high 12 over nine innings of work in an 11-0 victory.

Buchholz enters the break with a 5.42 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP over 14 starts (79 2/3 innings). He will make his first start after the break Friday against Kansas City.
