Stretch run: Buchholz rounding into form

Clay Buchholz was searching for something that could turn his miserable summer into something better, so he was open to suggestions. One day in late July, hitting coach Chili Davis casually suggested to the right-hander that he might want to try working exclusively out of the stretch.

Clay Buchholz on Evolving

I first interviewed Clay Buchholz in June 2005. Newly drafted — 42nd overall by the Red Sox — he’d made his professional debut a few days earlier. His future was bright. A lot has happened since then. Buchholz has had a roller-coaster career in Boston, with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. He’s thrown a no-hitter, won a World Series ring, and made a pair of All...

Red Sox Notes: Clay Buchholz Bouncing Back At Perfect Time For Boston

BOSTON — It’s something that you never would have expected to hear after the first half of the season, but the Red Sox are getting accustomed to winning when Clay Buchholz is on the mound. Buchholz was 2-5 with a 6.35 ERA to start the season before he was relegated to the bullpen at the end of May. But since the right-hander has slotted back into the rotation in August after...

The Boston Red Sox’s offense showed up for their second night in San Diego.

A Young Clay Buchholz Dazzled Orioles With No-Hitter 9 Years Ago Today

For all the rough patches Clay Buchholz has gone through lately, it’s easy to forget he once was one of the most exciting pitchers in the game. Buchholz made his major league debut for the Boston Red Sox on Aug. 17, 2007. And while he picked up the win in a solid outing, it was the Texas native’s next appearance that had Red Sox fans salivating. On Sept. 1, 2007 — exactly...

Read Sox: Solid Defense, Buchholz in the Bullpen and Mookie’s Arm

Welcome back to Read Sox. This week we look at how improved defense is helping the team win, how the bullpen remains a work in progress and how Clay Buchholz might help. Then we marvel at David Ortiz, laud Mookie Betts for improving a perceived weakness, remember that Pablo Sandoval is a Red Sox, consider Rick Porcello’s demeanor on the mound and look forward to a face-lift for...

The Clay Buchholz Option Conundrum

I don’t really like roller coasters, if we’re being honest with each other. Don’t get me wrong; I understand the appeal. There is a legitimate adrenaline rush involved when reaching each individual peak and valley. That anything could go wrong at any given moment — even though you know it almost certainly won’t — is thrilling. At the end of the day, though, it’s just...

Does Clay Buchholz Deserve A Spot In Red Sox’s Rotation Amid Strong Stretch?

Clay Buchholz was just supposed to bridge the gap. But given the way he’s pitched over the last two weeks, the Boston Red Sox might have some decisions to make. Buchholz, who is filling in for the injured Steven Wright in Boston’s rotation, made his third consecutive start Tuesday. And for the third consecutive time, the right-hander put his team in a position to win, this time...

Clay Buchholz thought he was traded after being pulled early

Clay Buchholz didn’t have his best stuff Monday night against the Oakland Athletics. He allowed four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out two in five innings but picked up his second win of the season thanks to Boston’s offense. The Red Sox routed the A’s 14-7. Buchholz was at 87 pitches when manager John Farrell pulled him after five innings. “I didn’t...
