Red Sox | Clay Buchholz has a throwing timeline

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:21:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) will begin throwing Monday, Aug. 31, when the team's current road trip ends and will be examined Wednesday, Sept. 2. There is a strong possibility he will not make another start this season.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz should be viewed as a desperation stash at this stage of the season, and in most leagues, you'll be able to better utilize his roster spot. At best, he returns for a late-season start or two, and there is no guarantee he'll pitch well if he makes it back, either.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz's season is in jeopardy

Fri, 21 Aug 2015 13:45:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) has not began a throwing program yet, and the team is unsure if he will return to pitch before the regular season ends.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Buchholz returns for a start or two in late September, and that is if everything goes according to plan. Fantasy owners in the majority of formats can replace Buchholz without worry, as the quality of production he'll return is unknown, if he is even able to start at all.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz could return this season

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 17:07:09 -0700

Updating a previous report, Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) received a positive report from Dr. James Andrews Wednesday, Aug. 12. He believes he will resume pitching before the end of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Based on this good news, seasonal owners should stash Buchholz ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) if they can afford the roster space. FantasyScore owners should avoid using him in his first start back to insure that he is both healthy and effective.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz estimates timeline

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 14:09:36 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Best-case scenario, Buchholz returns for a start or two at the end of the year, and that is if everything goes according to plan. Fantasy owners in the majority of formats can replace Buchholz without worry.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz shut down again

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 15:18:24 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his right elbow and will not continue his throwing program. Manager John Farrell said Buchholz's season is not over, though.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz's fantasy impact through the rest of the season is likely minimal, as there is a chance he is unable to return at all. Fantasy owners can stash him, but it also isn't out of the question to move on if you need the bench slot. Check back for updates on his progress and for what the Red Sox do with their rotation.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz feeling better

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 16:23:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) is feeling better and could play some catch this weekend. He will visit with Dr. James Andrews Wednesday, July 22, at which time he will have a program in place to return.

Fantasy Tip: Don't expect Buchholz ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) to be eligible to come off the DL when he's ready, but no structural damage is a good sign he can bounce back and be effective in the second half. Don't dump him just yet in shallow mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Clay Buchholz to DL

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 13:53:11 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Clay Buchholz (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, July 11, due to elbow tightness. In a corresponding move, SP Brian Johnson was called up from Class AAA Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: No ligament damage was found so Buchholz ($7,300, 14.6% of cap) may have dodged a bullet. He won't throw for one week, so Buchholz may be out past the DL time and could be sidelined for a while. It's best to disable Buchholz for now. Johnson doesn't have enough of a background to establish FantasyScore value so see how he does first.
