Red Sox | Clay Buchholz could be dealt

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 23:38:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz could be traded at the deadline, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: With Boston having acquired Drew Pomeranz, Buchholz is increasingly viewed as an odd man out. This may be a case where a change of scenery might do Buchholz some good. Stay tuned to see where he ends up and, if he does have a new team, how that new team uses him.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz demoted to bullpen again

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 12:19:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox P Clay Buchholz has been moved from the starting rotation to the bullpen, with the club expected to add SP Drew Pomeranz to the 25-man active roster prior to the game against the New York Yankees Sunday, July 17.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz went 0-3 with a 6.14 ERA during his brief return to the rotation after being sent to the bullpen earlier in the year due to ineffectiveness. Although he has a 2.89 ERA as a reliever in five appearances this year, he should be dropped in all but the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues. Pomeranz has posted a 0.64 ERA in two starts this month, with 13 strikeouts in 14 innings, and should be viewed as a viable pitching option in all formats. He is expected to make his debut with the BoSox against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, July 20.

Red Sox | Skipper won't commit to Clay Buchholz

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 22:11:58 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz struggled again Saturday, July 2, losing his third straight start, and manager John Farrell did not commit to another start for Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has been awful this season, already banished to the bullpen once. The only thing that might save him and give him another chance is that the team doesn't really have any other viable options within the organization. Still, he cannot be trusted in most fantasy formats.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz can only be trusted in the deepest of AL-only fantasy leagues right now, as he is just not getting it done.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz struggles with control

Sun, 26 Jun 2016 17:28:48 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz allowed five runs, four earned, on seven hits while walking a season-high five and striking out three over 5 1/3 innings in a loss to the Texas Rangers Sunday, June 26.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has struggled in two starts since returning to the rotation, and you should be able to find a better alternative on the waiver wire.

White Sox | Todd Frazier ends 11-game homer drought

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 19:49:11 -0700

Chicago White Sox 3B Todd Frazier became the fourth major-leaguer to reach 20 homers Tuesday, June 21, with a solo shot off Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz.

Fantasy Tip: Frazier lifted his average to .136 for the month and .200 for the season with his 1-for-3 effort, which pretty much encapsulates how all-or-nothing he has been this year at the plate. The two-time All-Star batted .257 during his six-year career with the Cincinnati Reds, so maybe he's taking longer to adjust to American League pitching than most expected. His power numbers (20 homers, 45 RBI) are why owners drafted him, so keep rolling with him and hope it gets better soon.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez's start pushed back

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 17:53:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will have his next start pushed back from Tuesday, June 21, to Wednesday, June 22, in order to have an extra bullpen session to work on his delivery. SP Clay Buchholz will start Tuesday, June 21, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz is a roll-of-the-dice DFS option in his return to the rotation, but Rodriguez should probably be left on the bench until he proves he is back on track.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz back in rotation

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 05:45:06 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz has been added to the starting rotation and is scheduled to start against the Chicago White Sox Wednesday, June 22. Buchholz returned to the rotation because the team optioned SP Roenis Elias to Class AAA Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz has been used out of the bullpen over the last few weeks and did not allow a run in four of his five appearances. He struggled when he was a starter, so owners may want to avoid him for the time being.

Red Sox | Relief win for Clay Buchholz

Sun, 29 May 2016 16:27:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz picked up his first win in relief since 2008, allowing one hit and striking out one in a scoreless inning against the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, May 29.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz will be coming out of the bullpen for the foreseeable future with Eduardo Rodriguez set to return to the rotation. You can probably cut Buchholz loose in all formats for now.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz heading to the 'pen

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:21:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz will pitch out of the bullpen when SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) returns from the disabled list Tuesday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: It has been a disastrous 10-game stretch to start the season for Buchholz, as he sits with a 6.35 ERA. He was hardly worth owning in the majority of leagues to begin with, but he should be replaced in all formats now. Sometimes, starting pitchers adapt to the bullpen quickly and become high-end relievers, but you'll want to see it before counting on it with Buchholz.
