Yesterday it was reported that Boston Red Sox right-hander Clay Buchholz was dealing with fatigue in his throwing shoulder. This led to questions regarding Buchholz’s availability for the World Series, and the Red Sox have officially announced that he’ll be pushed back to Game 4 with veteran right-hander Jake Peavy getting the nod for Game 3. Buchholz told reporters — including Joe McDonald of ESPN Boston — that he feels “general” fatigue in his arm. “It’s just a little dead at certain points,” he said after Wednesday’s 8-1 Red Sox victory in Game 1. “It’s not like a pinpoint straight spot where I can say, ‘Yeah, there it is.’ It’s just general.” While he added that the discomfort isn’t “out of the ordinary,” Buchholz also said that it’s not something you want to be experiencing entering the World Series. At this point, Buchholz is slated to pitch Game 4, but the Red Sox are preparing Felix Doubront for that role just in case the situation worsens and the extra rest isn

What Exactly Is Going On With Clay Buchholz?

(FenwayNation Photo)To paraphrase Winston Churchill, "Clay Buchholz has become a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma." After being on an early-season trajectory for the Cy Young Award, he missed three months with a poorly-defined neck/shoulder injury. His return from that injury has been uneven, and now we learn that he still has some "issues" with the...

Mixed Signals On Condition Of Clay Buchholz

Speculation is running rampant that while the right-hander may start Game...

The Clay Buchholz Data We All Could’ve Guessed

I’d like to share something with you from last Saturday’s ALCS Game 6. We all know now how that game turned out, but in the top of the sixth the eventual result was still a mystery, and the Red Sox were clinging to a tenuous lead. Given that the score was so close, every pitch was important, and when Clay Buchholz got to two strikes against Miguel Cabrera, a fan in the stands...

Red Sox’ Clay Buchholz will start Game 4 despite shoulder stiffness

Normally, Clay Buchholz would follow Jon Lester in the Boston Red Sox starting rotation. That would have had Buchholz pitching in Game 2 of the World Series. However, fatigue delayed Buchholz’s start to Sunday’s Game 4 to give him three extra days of rest, and questions arose about whether or not he could even pitch by Sunday. We now know the answer. NBC Sports.com’s Bill Baer...

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that Buchholz is scheduled to start either Game 3 or Game 4 of the World Series against the Cardinals despite reports that the right-hander is dealing with physical issues.

Red Sox add Clay Buchholz to World Series roster

On Wednesday the Red Sox finalized their 25-man World Series roster and  ESPNBoston.com reported that Clay Buchholz, who missed three months during the regular season with a neck injury, will remain on the post season roster. Manager John Farrell said there are no injury concerns about Buchholz, although Farrell did not name Buchholz his Game 3 starter.  He only said that Farrell...

Did Jon Lester have substance in his glove?

Earlier in the season, Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay Buchholz was accused of using a mixture of sunscreen and rosin to get a better grip on the ball. Now...it's his teammate Jon Lester who might be under the microscope. Wednesday night, during Game One of the World Series, the Boston ace was seen going to his glove during the seventh inning and, to some, it appeared as if he...

Buchholz a Concern, Peavy to Start Game 3

Well, the truth comes out. We were right to be a little concerned about Clay Buchholz and the fact that John Farrell was hesitating on naming him the Game 3 starter. After the Game 1 victory, Farrell surprisingly said that Jake Peavy would instead take the mound in Game 3, setting Buchholz up for Game 4 and just one more start in 2013. This also sets up Peavy, who barely made it...

Peavy, Buchholz to start Games 3, 4

Buchholz gave up five runs in eight innings and two runs in five innings in his AL championship series starts...

Jake Peavy, Clay Buchholz Must Answer Lingering Questions in St. Louis for Red Sox to Regain Control in Series (Podcast)

With two World Series games in the books, the Red Sox and Cardinals are in a dead heat. Poor fielding doomed the Cards in Game 1, but it was Boston’s defensive lapses in Game 2 that allowed the visitors to knot up the series at one apiece. Now, the teams will head to Busch Stadium for three games under National League rules, which will certainly result in a number of lineup adjustments...

Lackey Likely To Start World Series Game Two

It's not official yet, but all signs point to John Lackey—and not Clay Buchholz—starting Game Two of the World Series on Thursday night. Given the uneven performances of Buchholz in the postseason, Lackey would be the far more logical choice to follow Jon Lester. In this scenario, Buchholz would start Game Three at Busch Stadium on Saturday and Jake Peavy would take the hill...

Clay Buchholz’s Uncertain Status Puts Added Pressure on Felix Doubront, Ryan Dempster in World Series (Podcast)

The Red Sox sit four wins away from a championship, with Game 1 of the World Series getting underway on what looks to be a brutally cold night in Boston. Jon Lester will be on the mound for the series opener against the National League-champion Cardinals, with John Lackey slated to follow in Game 2. The rotation could get a little dicey when the series shifts to St. Louis, though...
