Red Sox's Buchholz gives up 12 hits in spring loss Friday
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4:34 pm ET) 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.

Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz: 'I feel like arm's in good shape'
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) 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
|(3/7/15) 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.”
Red Sox's Clay Buchholz feeling good about new mechanics
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/3/15) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz is feeling good about his new mechanics, according to MLB.com.
Buchholz tossed one inning during the team's exhibition game against Northeastern University, and came away encouraged with his offseason work. When asked about his mechanics, Buchholz said, "They feel natural. I've been working a lot on it. It's basically the only thing I worked on in the offseason and throughout camp. It's pretty much to the point of being second nature."
Manager John Farrell was impressed as well. "This has been a continuation from the end of last year through his offseason bullpens," he said. "He's been able to execute so far."
Buchholz, 30, posted a 5.34 ERA over 170 1/3 innings last year.
|2014 summary: Health issues marred yet another Red Sox season for Clay Buchholz, as he missed nearly a month with a hyperextended left knee. Buchholz was having a miserable season prior to going on the disabled list, as he went 2-4 with a 7.02 ERA through 10 starts. Though his post-DL performance (6-7, 4.64 ERA) didn't do much for his popularity in Fantasy, Buchholz did emerge from his recovery a much better pitcher. In particular, he threw with much sharper control, walking 30 batters over 120 1/3 innings, and walking more than two batters in only four times in his final 18 starts.|
Playing time status: Buchholz had surgery to repair the meniscus in his right knee just after the 2014 season, but he is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.
2015 outlook: Buchholz's wild year-to-year inconsistency and persistent health issues make it hard to count on him to perform at a high level, but bear in mind he has finished three of the last five seasons with a sub-3.50 ERA. Even in his best years, Buchholz hasn't been a great strikeout or control pitcher, so his upside isn't high enough to justify the risk of using anything more than a late-round pick to secure him.
