Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Strikes out six in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (2-5) gave up one run on four hits and one walk while striking out six through five innings to earn the win over the Rays on Sunday.

Buchholz allowed a solo home run in the fourth inning but that would be all for the Rays in his five frames. The win was the 90th of his career for the 35-year-old. Buchholz finishes the season with a 6.56 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 59 innings.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Gives up six runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz gave up six runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four through four innings in a no-decision against the Orioles on Monday.

Buchholz was hit hard, allowing three home runs, including two in the fifth inning. The 35-year-old has a 1-5 record with a 7.00 ERA and 33 strikeouts through 11 starts this season. Buchholz is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Rays at Rogers Centre.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Hit hard by Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz allowed seven earned runs on 10 hits and no walks while striking out four across 3.2 innings Wednesday against the Orioles. He did not factor into the decision.

Buchholz was tattooed for six extra-base hits in his short outing, including two home runs. Prior to this start, he had worked fairly effectively, allowing 11 earned runs across 21.2 innings spanning his last four starts. Still, his 6.48 ERA and 1.48 WHIP across 50 innings this season indicate that he's had trouble putting together quality outings on a consistent basis. Buchholz is likely to draw a rematch against the Orioles in his next outing, currently projected to come on Monday.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Struggles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (1-5) was charged with the loss Thursday against the Red Sox, surrendering four runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four across four innings.

The 35-year-old veteran struggled against a volatile Red Sox lineup, registering a season-high-tying four strikeouts, which isn't exactly noteworthy. On the bright side, Buchholz didn't allow any home runs for the third time this season. The right-hander was making his ninth start as a Blue Jay, and his first career start against the Red Sox, who drafted him in the first round 14 years ago. He'll take a 5.63 ERA and 1.38 WHIP into a more favorable matchup at Baltimore on Wednesday.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Pitches fairly well in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (1-4) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits with no walks and three strikeouts across six innings while taking a loss against the Rays on Friday.

He didn't pitch poorly, but Buchholz didn't receive any run support in the loss. The 35-year-old has been inconsistent with his control, but his ERA is trending in the right direction, as it sits at 3.57 in the last three outings. Overall, Buchholz is 1-4 with a 5.31 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 21 strikeouts in 42.1 innings this year. He will start again Thursday at home against the Red Sox.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Earns first win of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (1-3) allowed two runs on three hits with five walks and three strikeouts across 5.2 innings while earning a victory against the Astros on Saturday.

It's been a tough season for the 35-year-old, as he missed three months with a shoulder injury, but Buchholz finally has his first win of the year. He pitched well in his last start, which was his first one since May, but he took a loss despite yielding just three hits. Buchholz owns a 3.08 ERA in two outings since his return from the shoulder ailment and is 1-3 with a 5.45 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 36.1 innings this season. He is scheduled to pitch next on the road against the Rays on Friday.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Whiffs three in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (0-3) allowed two runs on three hits over six innings Sunday, striking out three batters and taking the loss to Seattle.

It was Buchholz's best start since allowing just one run on April 13, but his offense didn't give him much help. Dylan Moore tagged him with a solo shot in the third inning before Kyle Seager drove in a run in the fourth. His ERA still sits far too high at 5.87 over 30.2 innings this season. Still looking for his first win, he'll host the dangerous Astros next Sunday.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Reinstated from IL ahead of start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Blue Jays reinstated Buchholz (shoulder) from the 60-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Mariners.

As anticipated, Buchholz will make his first start for the Blue Jays in nearly four months after he wrapped up a rehab assignment at High-A Dunedin last weekend. Buchholz topped out at four innings and 67 pitches in his fourth and final rehab outing, so he'll likely face some light restrictions as he steps back into the Toronto rotation. Nick Kingham (oblique) was designated for assignment to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Buchholz.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: On track to rejoin rotation Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said that Buchholz (shoulder) would likely be reinstated from the 60-day injured list to start Sunday's game against the Mariners, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

On the shelf since early May with a right shoulder strain, Buchholz is finally ready to return from nearly a four-month absence following a successful four-start rehab assignment in the lower minors. Buchholz was at his sharpest in his most recent rehab outing Aug. 18 with High-A Dunedin, when he struck out seven over four innings. The 35-year-old only built up to 67 pitches in that start, so he'll likely face some light workload restrictions when he slots back into the Toronto rotation this weekend.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Strikes out seven in rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz shifted his rehab assignment to High-A Dunedin on Sunday, working four innings and giving up one run on four hits and no walks while striking out seven.

Making the third start of his rehab assignment, Buchholz acquitted himself well while pushing his pitch count up to 67 and testing himself against full-season competition for the first time. Buchholz will likely make at least one more minor-league start at an affiliate to be determined before potentially slotting back into the Toronto rotation in late August or early September.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Makes second rehab start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (shoulder) gave up a run and struck out four over three innings Tuesday in his second rehab start for the Blue Jays' rookie-level Gulf Coast League affiliate.

Buchholz proved to be no match for the lower-level competition, surrendering just one hit -- a home run -- in the outing. Assuming he came out of the start with no setbacks to his right shoulder, Buchholz could move up to a full-season affiliate for his next outing. The 35-year-old looks on track to rejoin the Toronto rotation when rosters expand in September.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (shoulder) thew two innings in the Gulf Coast League on Friday and will throw again Tuesday, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.

He allowed one run on four hits and zero walks while recording zero strikeouts. Now that he is pitching in games, it seems possible that Buchholz could return before the end of the season. He will likely need more than a few rehab starts to get up to speed, however.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Throws bullpen session
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (shoulder) threw a bullpen session last week, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.

Buchholz has been dealing with a shoulder strain since early May. He's making progress and will throw two more bullpens this week but may need a handful of rehab outings before he's back on a big-league mound.

June 29, 2019 03:40 PM
Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Ready for long toss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (shoulder) will begin long tossing soon, Alexis Brudnicki of MLB.com reports.

Buchholz was able to play catch from 90 feet without issue, so he will extend his distance next time he throws. He still has a few steps to go before he is ready for a rehab assignment.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Shifts to 60-day injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday.

Buchholz has been dealing with a Grade 2 shoulder strain since mid-May. He'll now be ineligible to return until mid-July. The transaction clears a spot on the 40-man roster for Jordan Romano, whose contract was purchased from Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: MRI reveals Grade 2 strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz received an MRI on his inflamed right shoulder Saturday which revealed a Grade 2 teres major strain, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.

A Grade 2 strain means that there's been some tearing in Buchholz's shoulder, so his absence should be expected to be a fairly significant one. He'll receive a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews next week, at which point a clearer timeline could emerge.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Heads to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with shoulder inflammation, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Buchholz was scratched from Friday's start and said he hoped to miss only one start, but will instead take a trip to the IL. The veteran right-hander has a 6.57 ERA, 1.54 WHIP and 12:6 K:BB through 24.2 innings this season, though it remains unclear how long the shoulder has been an issue. Daniel Hudson will start in his place Friday in what should be a bullpen game, but look for Thomas Pannone to rejoin the rotation in Buchholz's spot after that.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Hoping to make next start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz is dealing with a lat strain but hopes to miss only one start, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Buchholz was scratched from Friday's start against the White Sox due to the issue, but early indications are that it isn't serious. The veteran right-hander's status for his next turn through the rotation should receive some additional clarity within a few days. Daniel Hudson will start for the Blue Jays on Friday in what appears to be a bullpen game.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Scratched with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz won't make his scheduled start Friday against the White Sox due to shoulder tightness, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

Buchholz also battled elbow issues earlier in the season, pushing his season debut into mid-April. It's not clear whether this injury will require another trip to the injured list. Daniel Hudson will serve as the opener Friday in what appears to now be a bullpen game.

Blue Jays' Clay Buchholz: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchholz (0-2) gave up seven runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out one through four innings, taking the loss against the Rangers on Sunday.

Buchholz was knocked around, allowing two more home runs in the defeat. The 34-year-old has given up a home run in four consecutive outings. He has an 0-2 record with a 6.57 ERA and a putrid 4.4 K/9 through five starts this season. Buchholz will get his next start at home Friday against the White Sox.
