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.

Clay Buchholz gets the job done vs. Royals
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz was not at his best, but did enough to get the win Friday night at home against the Royals. The right-hander permitted four runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out three over six innings of a 5-4 victory.

Over his last four starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Buchholz has allowed nine earned runs. He owns a 5.46 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP over 15 starts (85 2/3 innings). His next start will come Wednesday at Toronto.

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.

Red Sox announce rotation plans for start of second half
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Red Sox announced Clay Buchholz will be on the mound for the team's second-half opener Friday vs. Kansas City. He will be followed in the three-game series by Rubby De La Rosa and Jon Lester.

John Lackey will then open a series at Toronto July 21. He will be followed by Jake Peavy before the rotation resets.

It appears for the time being that Brandon Workman will remain in the minors. He was optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Wednesday in order to clear a roster spot for De La Rosa.
