Red Sox's Buchholz gives up 12 hits in spring loss Friday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox starting pitcher Clay Buchholz had his worst start of the spring during a 4-2 loss Friday against the Braves, which was called after 6 1/2 innings due to rain. Buchholz (2-2) allowed four runs on a spring-worst 12 hits and one walk, while striking out six in five-plus innings.

The Braves did most of their damage against Buchholz during a three-run second inning. Kelly Johnson added a solo home run off Buchholz leading off the sixth inning, which chased the right-hander from the game.

His ERA went from 1.80 to 3.60 in his fourth spring start. Buchholz has allowed eight runs (six earned) in his last two starts.

"I didn't really have an easy inning any time out," said Buchholz to MLB.com. "There were runners on base. I had to pitch out of the bases-loaded jam. Getting out of a situation like that, where they've got some pretty good hitters, being able to get out of that and give the team a chance to win, I felt like my stuff was really good, my command of it.

Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz: 'I feel like arm's in good shape'
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz struck out six in a shaky Grapefruit League outing Tuesday afternoon against Atlanta. He allowed four runs on five hits over four inning of work. He has a 3.60 ERA this spring.

Buchholz told NESN that his changeup feels better, and that his only issue he had was locating his fastball consistently, per the Boston Globe.

"I feel pretty good actually," Buchholz said. "I trained pretty hard this offseason to come to camp somewhat ready and the training and everything's paying off being here. Been working out, it's been pretty hot the last week or so, getting used to that and sweating a little bit.

"Overall, feel like arm's in good shape. Just gotta continue to work on some little minor adjustments throughout the delivery and hopefully all that comes together before the start of the season."

Red Sox P Clay Buchholz strikes out four in three scoreless innings
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz is making a strong case to be opening day starter, despite manager John Farrell not being ready to name one, according to the Boston Herald.  He was in regular season form, mixing up his fastball and changeup effectively.

"It's just another step,” Buchholz said. “That was my first inning against major-league guys, and the goal was to go out and work on fastball command and then throw my other pitches off that. I threw some more changeups today that were like I want them, and I was able to make some adjustments out there, too."

Buccholz did his part in the team's victory by striking out four in three shutout innings.  

Farrell has yet to make a decision on opening day starter, but he likes what he has seen from Buchholz this spring.

“Very good,” Farrell said. “Four pitches for strikes. Good command. The thing that we focus in on, when he’s able to throw his changeup to right-handers, his release point has got good extension and that was the case today.”
