Report: Clay Buchholz will undergo right knee surgery Tuesday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/29/14) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz will undergo right knee surgery Tuesday to repair his meniscus, according to the Boston Herald.
Buchholz ended his 2014 campaign on a sour note, coughing up 13 earned runs over his final three starts (17 2/3 innings). He finished the year 8-11 with a 5.34 ERA, a 1.39 WHIP and 132:54 K:BB ratio over 170 1/3 innings.
Although it's too early to tell, the procedure should not put Buchholz's status in danger for the start of spring training.
Clay Buchholz slammed for five runs in loss vs. Rays
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/23/14) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz took a loss Tuesday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits and one walk in 7 2/3 innings while striking out six in his team's 6-2 defeat against the Rays.
Buchholz (8-10) cruised through seven scoreless innings before coming unglued in the eighth. He had two men on and two outs before giving up a double and a single to bring home three runs. After a passed ball and a hit batsman, the starter was removed from the game, only to see two of the runners he left on base score. Buchholz owns a 5.31 ERA and 128:53 K:BB ratio in 164 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Yankees in the season finale Sunday.
Red Sox shuffle rotation for final week
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) WEEI.com reports that Brandon Workman and Rubby De La Rosa have been removed from the Red Sox's rotation for the final week of the season. Clay Buchholz, Anthony Ranaudo and Allen Webster are set to make starts against the Rays, and then Joe Kelly and Buchholz will start the last two games of the team's season-ending series against the Yankees.
Friday's starter in the series opener against the Yankees is still to be named, but Steven Wright is a candidate to get the nod. Wright has posted a 3.38 ERA in five relief appearances this season.
Clay Buchholz struggles Wednesday
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz had a rough start Wednesday against the Pirates.
Buchholz allowed five runs, four earned, on six hits over four innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. The Pirates put pressure on Buchholz immediately. Gregory Polanco started things off in the first inning by hitting a solo home run. In the second, an error and two doubles plated two runs. After a mound visit, Buchholz would give up a single, scoring the third run of the inning. Neil Walker added another run the following inning, hitting a solo shot. Buchholz would get out of the third and toss a scoreless fourth inning, but left the game at that point.
With the loss, Buchholz dropped to 8-9. He’ll take on the Rays in his next start.
|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.
