Phillies' Clay Buchholz: Traded to Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz was traded to the Phillies on Tuesday in exchange for second base prospect Josh Tobias, the Philadelphia Daily News' Matt Gelb reports.

Buchholz was expendable after Boston acquired Chris Sale earlier in the offseason, and the primary motivation for moving him was to get his $13.5 million salary off the books. He will become a free agent after the 2017 season. His fantasy stock is certainly trending up after this move, as he will head to the National League and get out of the American League East, while also going from a likely bullpen/swing man role to the Phillies' clear fifth starter. Buchholz has struggled to stay healthy for seemingly his entire career, but he has a career 3.96 ERA, and as recently as 2015 he posted a 22.8 percent strikeout rate. He is worth a flyer in deep mixed leagues and could be a solid contributor in NL-only formats.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Has option picked up for 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox picked up their 2017 option of $13.5 million for Buchholz's contract, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

On the surface, Buchholz's 2017 season looks vastly underwhelming, as he rounded out the year with a 4.78 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. However, he finished the season on a strong note and recorded an ERA of 2.86 and 3.14 in August and September, respectively.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Will start Monday after game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Following Sunday's game being postponed, Buchholz will pitch Game 3 of the ALDS on Monday night, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports

Although the game was postponed a day due to heavy rain, the Red Sox will send out their same scheduled starter for Monday's outing. Buchholz has a lofty 4.78 ERA and 1.33 WHIP for the year but has shown improvement as of late. Across his last five starts, Buchholz has posted an ERA and WHIP of 3.14 and 1.15, respectively.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Earns Game 3 start
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buchholz has been announced as the Red Sox's starting pitcher for Game 3 of their ALDS series with the Indians, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Buchholz spent a good portion of the season working out of the bullpen after struggling as a starter, but he rejoined the rotation late in the season and earned at least one postseason start by going 3-0 with a 3.14 ERA over five September starts. He faced the Indians twice during the regular season -- albeit during his rough patch to open the campaign -- and did not fare well, giving up eight earned runs in 10 innings (7.20 ERA) over two starts.

Red Sox's Clay Buchholz: Throws six innings of one-hit ball versus Yankees on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz continued his masterful work, throwing seven shutout frames in a no-decision against the Yankees on Wednesday. He allowed just one hit, struck out six and walked two.

Boston didn't grab the lead until the eighth, as the game remained scoreless until then, so Buchholz wasn't in line for the win, but the Red Sox bullpen blew the game in the ninth anyway. Since allowing six runs against Toronto on Sept. 11, Buchholz has allowed just three runs over 19 frames, and actually, he owns a 2.63 ERA since Aug. 13, and that even includes the outing where he yielded six runs. He's extremely hot heading into October.
