CLAY BUCHHOLZ RUMORS

Don’t Count On Red Sox Using Clay Buchholz’s Money To Sign Free-Agent Slugger

The Boston Red Sox did something we’re not used to seeing them do Tuesday: They made a trade with the primary objective of shedding salary. The Red Sox are a big-market team with seemingly deep pockets, of which they’re often willing to dig into in order to pay high-end players. However, Major League Baseball is changing, and the new collective bargaining agreement will make...

After 10 Years in Boston, Clay Buchholz Heads to Philly

After a decade in Boston, Clay Buchholz is on the move. And while he’s not going very far, the scenery and competitive landscape will be drastically different. He’ll even need to handle a bat consistently. Unfortunately for him, he’s going from a contender to a—well, they’re still rebuilding. Fortunately for Philadelphia, they’re not giving up a whole lot. 24-year-old...

Clay Buchholz Trade Crystallizes Rotation for Red Sox, Phillies

Earlier today, the Boston Red Sox traded starting pitcher Clay Buchholz to the Phillies in exchange for minor-league infielder Josh Tobias. In so doing, both teams have more or less crystallized their plans for their 2017 starting rotations. For the Red Sox, this is about nailing down just who will be on the 2017 pitching staff. In his remarks to reporters, Red Sox head honcho Dave...

Red Sox's Dombrowski explains thinking behind Buchholz trade

Love him or hate him, the Boston Red Sox’s decision to trade Clay Buchholz on Tuesday still was a bit of a surprise. The Red Sox dealt Buchholz to the Philadelphia Phillies in return for minor league second baseman Josh Tobias, ending the right-hander’s 10-year tenure in Boston. It looked like Buchholz would return for Year 11 after the team picked up his $13.5 million option...

Clay Buchholz Should Have a Very Short Leash

In a few hours, the Red Sox play their first win-or-go-home game of the season. And with their season on the line, they’re handing the ball to Clay Buchholz. Yes, the same Clay Buchholz who posted a 4.78 ERA, 5.06 FIP, and 5.32 xFIP this season while getting bounced from the rotation. Buchholz is getting the ball in large part because of how he finished the season, as he ran a...

The Adjustment Clay Buchholz Made

Ever since (and including) a three-inning relief appearance against the Angels on July 31, Boston right-hander Clay Buchholz has recorded some promising numbers. In terms of run prevention, he’s been great: a 2.85 ERA in the American League is about 36% better than league average. By underlying factors, meanwhile, he’s been solid. His strikeout- and walk-rate differential (K...

Why Red Sox expect Buchholz to deliver in must-win Game 3

BOSTON — The fate of the Red Sox’s season now rests on the arm of Clay Buchholz. If this sounds like a scary thought to you, you’re not alone. After all, the veteran right-hander has endured some brutal stretches this season, making three separate trips to the bullpen while finishing the regular season with an 8-10 record and 4.78 ERA.

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...
