Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Loses it in eighth inning
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buchholz gave up a solo homer to Tampa Bay's Evan Longoria and was the losing pitcher in the Red Sox's 4-3 loss to the Rays.

Just hours earlier, manager John Farrell had declared Buchholz would be tried as one of Boston's setup guys, after the right-hander had auditioned for high-leverage situations in blowout games Saturday and Monday. But Farrell is still searching for that reliable bridge to closer Craig Kimbrel. A Buchholz fastball caught more of the plate than catcher Bryan Holaday wanted and Longoria didn't miss it, belting a mammoth home run out of Fenway Park. Buchholz will still be in the mix for late-inning work, but we expect to see Brad Ziegler, who was unavailable Tuesday because of the flu, the next time a tight situation crops up in the eighth inning.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Second straight eighth-inning appearance
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buchholz allowed one run on two hits and a walk while striking out one over one inning in Boston's 9-4 win over Tampa Bay on Monday.

While it was a low-leverage situation -- Boston was leading 9-3 when Buchholz emerged from the bullpen -- it was the second straight appearance in which he's pitched the eighth inning. Boston manager John Farrell is trying to shore up the bridge to closer Craig KImbrel and Buchholz is the latest reliever. The manager doesn't have a reliable setup guy at this time -- Junichi Tazawa and Matt Barnes have blown up, Brad Ziegler's splits against left-handed batters aren't pretty and Koji Uehara is working his way back from a pectoral injury. Buchholz's performance Monday -- he loaded the bases with no outs before getting out of it relatively unharmed -- was not a good sign, but the right-hander has pitched very well in the month of August (2.57 ERA).

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Pitches the eighth inning Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz came into Saturday's game in the eighth inning, pitching a scoreless inning in Boston's 8-3 win over the Royals.

It wasn't exactly a high-leverage spot, but don't be surprised to see Buchholz get some of those opportunities going forward. He's in the midst of his best stretch of pitching this season and manager John Farrell hinted to Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com that Buchholz could be part of the mix for eighth-inning work along with Brad Ziegler.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Moving back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buchholz will move back into a bullpen role, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

Filling in for the injured Steven Wright and Eduardo Rodriguez, Buchholz showed improvement in his latest stint in the rotation, working to a 2.70 ERA over three starts -- including a nine-strikeout performance his last time out. With Rodriguez set to return though, the 32-year-old will head back to the bullpen, where he's been effective to the tune of a 3.20 ERA. He remains a candidate for spot starts going forward.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Takes sting out of Rays Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (5-9) tossed 6.1 innings, allowing one run, five hits and two walks while striking out nine Rays in Tuesday's win.

Buchholz performed admirably for the second straight start in place of the injured Steven Wright (shoulder). In each of his last two outings, Buchholz has allowed just one run in six-plus innings while notching 12 K's over 12.1 innings. Although it's still not pretty, Tuesday's effort did pushed his ERA down to a season-best 5.18. Buchholz future in the rotation hinges on Wright's health, and all indications are pointing to Buchholz being sent back to the bullpen in the near future.
