Red Sox | David Ortiz praises Clay Buchholz

Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz praised SP Clay Buchholz after he improved to a perfect 8-0 in a rain-shortened win over the New York Yankees Sunday, June 2. "He throws every pitch for a strike, in any situation," Ortiz said. "I mean, his confidence and his focus, it's ridiculous. I watch the game more than a lot of the guys, and I sense that when he's on the mound, you see how he's focused, how he executes, and his numbers talk about themselves." Buchholz gave up two singles in five innings Sunday. He's allowed more than two earned runs in only one of his 11 starts this season and has held the opponent scoreless four times. Buchholz has given up only one earned run in his last 16 innings, and his ERA is down to 1.62, the lowest in the league. He had no pain in his shoulder during his start Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz definitely seems to be pitching with more poise and confidence than he's shown in his career. Continue relying on him as your fantasy ace.
