David Buchanan heading to Triple-A Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan has been optioned to the minors Thursday.

Buchanan tossed a strong start against the Brewers Thursday, but Cliff Lee is nearing a return. The team won't need a fifth starter until Lee can come back, making Buchanan expendable. He posted a 4.40 ERA over ten starts in the majors. 


David Buchanan strong against the Brewers Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Phillies starter David Buchanan turned in a strong start Thursday against the Brewers.

Buchanan gave up one run on four hits over seven innings. His only blemish was a solo home run by Carlos Gomez in the sixth inning. Other than that, Buchanan pitched well. He was actually set to take the loss through seven innings, but the Phillies offense came alive in the top of the eighth, scoring seven runs. 

The win moves Buchanan to 5-5 on the year. It's unclear where he'll slot into the team's rotation following the All-Star break. 


David Buchanan drops to .500 with loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/5/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan fell below .500 Saturday, in a tough-luck 3-2 loss to the Pirates.

Buchanan tossed a quality start for the first time in three trips to the mound, but ended up with nothing to show for it. He allowed three runs on six hits and a walk, while striking out three batters on 87 pitches in the loss.

Buchanan dropped his second decision in a row and is now 4-5 in nine starts. He has a 4.82 ERA heading into his next start, set for Thursday in Milwaukee. 


David Buchanan walks five in loss vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan was saddled with a loss Sunday, giving up three earned runs on five hits and five walks in five innings while striking out four in his team's 3-2 defeat against the Braves.

Buchanan (4-4) gave up two runs on a second-inning triple and a third on a fourth-inning double, but the story is his flagging control, as the starter has issued nine walks in 10 innings over his last two outings. He owns a 4.86 ERA and 31:15 K:BB ratio in 46 1/3 innings. Buchanan is scheduled to face the Pirates Saturday.


David Buchanan gives up two runs in win vs. Marlins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/24/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan earned a win Tuesday after giving up two earned runs on six htis and four walks in five innings while striking out two in his team's 7-4 victory over the Marlins.

Buchanan (4-3) threw only half of his 94 pitches for strikes and continually had to pitch around baserunners, but he was able to record his third straight win. He owns a 4.79 ERA and 27:10 K:BB ratio. Buchanan is slated to face the Braves Sunday.


David Buchanan goes seven-plus strong in win over Cardinals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan twirled a quality start and picked up the win Thursday night against the Cardinals in St. Louis, improving to 3-3 on the year. The right-hander yielded one run on four hits and one walk while striking out four over 7 2/3 innings of a 4-1 victory.

Over his last two starts covering 12 2/3 innings, Buchanan has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 4.95 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP in six starts (36 1/3 innings). He will make his next start Tuesday at home against Miami.

David Buchanan collects second win of the season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan picked up his second win of the season Saturday afternoon against the Cubs. The right-hander surrendered three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out five over five innings of a 7-4 victory.

David Buchanan falls short of a quality start Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/8/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan could not turn in a quality start Sunday against the Reds.

Buchanan allowed four runs on six hits over four innings. He sported good control, walking none and registering six strikeouts. Buchanan was cruising until the fifth inning. He seemed to unravel somewhat during the inning, giving up a single and a double before Homer Bailey stepped to the plate.

Bailey helped his own cause, singling in both runs. To add insult to injury, Buchanan followed up that at-bat by giving up a home run to Billy Hamilton. It was Hamilton's second home run of the year. Buchanan rebounded in the sixth, turning in a perfect inning of work.

The loss dropped Buchanan to 1-3 on the year. His next start will come against the Cubs.


Nationals blast off vs. David Buchanan


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Phillies starter David Buchanan dropped his second decision in a row Tuesday against the Nationals, in his worst start yet.

Buchanan entered the game having allowed five runs in his first two major-league starts, but the Nationals jumped on him early and often this time out. He was tagged with seven runs on 10 hits and a pair of walks over six innings of work, though he also struck out six batters on 112 pitches.

Buchanan now has a 6.11 ERA in three starts, while sporting a 1-2 record. He will try to get back on track in his next start, set for Sunday against the Reds.


David Buchanan suffers first loss to Mets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/30/2014) Phillies starting pitcher David Buchanan wasn't bad Thursday, but still took his first career loss in a 4-1 defeat.

Buchanan allowed four runs -- three earned -- in 6 2/3 innings of work, after he made it through just five in his first start. He was down from the second inning on, and the offense never really put up a fight, as he settled for the loss. He scattered seven hits and two walks, while striking out two batters on 96 pitches.

Buchanan has allowed five runs in 11 2/3 innings in his major-league career. He is 1-1 entering his third start, set for Tuesday in Washington.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

He will try to make it two in a row Thursday against the Mets.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

David Buchanan tabbed to start Saturday for Phillies


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

David Buchanan could be rotation-bound


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan could be called upon to replace Cliff Lee in the team's rotation, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer

Buchanan reportedly impressed team officials during spring training, and has performed admirably in the minors. Through nine starts, Buchanan has a 3.98 ERA. Lee could be sidelined for a few weeks, so Buchanan may get a few chances to show he belongs in the majors. 


Phillies to use four-man rotation until April 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said the team will use four starting pitchers -- Cliff Lee, A.J. Burnett, Kyle Kendrick and Roberto Hernandez -- until April 13, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Sandberg said starting pitcher David Buchanan could then be summoned from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to join the rotation.

David Buchanan will open season in minors


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Phillies informed starting pitcher David Buchanan he did not earn a spot in the team's rotation and will open the season in the minors. Buchanan did pitch pretty well this spring, going 1-1 with a 2.25 ERA and 0.67 WHIP in five outings (four starts).

David Buchanan not hurting his chances to earn rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan continued his quest to land a spot in the team's rotation Monday against the Blue Jays, and he didn't appear to hurt his chances with two scoreless innings. Buchanan didn't allow a hit or walk, while striking out two.

Buchanan has allowed three runs in 12 innings, which is good enough for a 2.25 ERA this spring. He has 11 strikeouts and has walked two batters.


Two homers mar another fine effort by David Buchanan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Phillies right-hander David Buchanan continued to open some eyes Thursday with another strong starting effort, this time against Toronto.

Buchanan struck out six in four innings, though he did yield two earned runs. He walked one and surrendered just three hits, but two of them were solo blasts by Moises Sierra and Erik Kratz.


David Buchanan tosses three scoreless innings vs. Braves


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan allowed just one hit and one walk in three scoreless innings but didn't record a strikeout in his team's 9-1 loss to the Braves Tuesday.

Buchanan has given up just one earned run in six innings over three appearances this spring while striking out three and walking one. The nonroster invite is an unlikely option for the rotation to open the season, though he does have plenty of experience in the high minors after going 10-13 with a 4.40 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 108:53 K:BB ratio in 169 2/3 innings between Double-A Reading and Triple-A Lehigh Valley last season.
