Phillies' David Buchanan strengthens case for rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Phillies starting pitcher David Buchanan had to spring into action Tuesday against the Rays after starting pitcher Jerome Williams was scratched due to a right hamstring injury. The late notice didn't seem to impact Buchanan, who was outstanding against Tampa Bay.

The right-hander, who is expected to be in the team's rotation following Cliff Lee (elbow) going on the 60-day DL, allowed one run on two hits and no walks in four innings. He struck out six, while lowering his spring ERA from 2.57 to 2.45.

"I felt good," Buchanan said, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "I was able to throw all my pitches for strikes, I think that’s what helped me out the most. ... I think in the second inning I was better about getting ahead strike one. But being behind 1-0 is what I’m trying to avoid, because over the course of the game if you keep doing that your pitch count is going to escalate, which you don’t want."


Phillies' David Buchanan gives up one hit in three innings


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Phillies' Buchanan 'working on being a complete pitcher'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2015) Phillies pitcher David Buchanan is "working on being a complete pitcher," manager Ryan Sandberg said, per the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The team's coaches spoke with Buchanan in the fall about command and pitch sequencing, executing bunts and thwarting would-be base-stealers, and Sandberg noted while examining the players that arrived early that the pitcher had taken the advice to heart.

"My biggest goal [this spring] is to show our front office and our coaches that I can throw the ball over the plate," Buchanan said. "That's one thing I had success with last year. I wasn't walking guys. I was throwing strikes, and that's what I'm known for. That's why I succeeded in the minor leagues; I was throwing strikes. So that's what I want to do this spring training, is continue to do that, pound the zone, force early contact and keep the ball on the ground."

Buchanan is scheduled to pitch the team's Grapefruit League opener Tuesday against the Yankees.


David Buchanan will compete for one of two spots in Phillies' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/26/2015) Phillies starting pitcher David Buchanan said refininig his curveball has been a point of emphasis this offseason, as he prepares to compete for a spot in the rotation this spring, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

“I had success with (my curveball) in certain games,” he said. “It started coming along there toward the end. But it’s definitely something that has a lot of work still to go. It’s definitely something I’m working on. It’s getting better, which is all I can ask for.”

There is two spots currently open in the rotation behind Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Aaron Harang. Buchanan, Jerome Williams and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez are considered the leading candidates for the openings in the rotation. 

“There’s going to be some competition,” Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said last week. “I think that’s the only way that you can get better is by creating competition. I can’t sit here and tell you today that David Buchanan’s going to be one of our guys in the rotation, but he absolutely is going to get an opportunity to pitch in spring training and be ready and compete for one of those spots.”
