Buchholz is scheduled to make his first start with the team this Saturday in a game against the Minnesota Twins. Buchholz has been held back from starting a game due to a nagging hamstring injury but has been able to pitch in two simulated games. In his latest simulated game, Tuesday he threw 40 pitches, approximately 2 innings. He threw 20 pitches to the left handed hitter Mike Carp and 20 pitches to the right handed hitter Mike Napoli. When asked about the simulated game Buchholz said "It was good. Felt more comfortable, I've felt comfortable since I started throwing out of the wind-up. I started to find a balance point there at the end to get a good feel for it. Last 10 pitches I stayed on line without jumping toward home plate". On Saturday we should see Buchholz throw in the proximity of 2 innings or 4...

Mike Lowell grew up in Miami, helped the Marlins win a World Series and knows all too well about the franchise's tradition of humble payrolls and modest crowds.
Back in uniform this week as a special instructor, Lowell says the team can win again and win back fans, but it will take time. And he sympathizes with South Floridians angry the Marlins this season will be near baseball...
