Should the Boston Red Sox exercise team option on Clay Buchholz for 2016?

The Boston Red Sox are expected to exercise the team option and bring back starting pitcher Clay Buchholz for the 2016 season.  But is it the right decision? The Red Sox will owe Buchholz $13 million if he stays with the team next season.  The buyout is only $500,000.  Given his history of injuries and inconsistency, I’m surprised there isn’t more talk about either trading...

Sox Move Clay To 60-Day DL, Get LH Reliever

The Red Sox made two related moves today—moving Clay Buchholz to the 60-day disabled list and acquiring "lefty specialist" Jean Machi for the struggling bullpen. As we predicted a while ago, this DL move effectively ends the season for Buchholz—who now wouldn't return (at the earliest) until mid-September. Machi is a left-handed reliever with pedestrian overall numbers (5.14...

Buchholz brushes off 'injury prone’ label: ‘Doesn’t bother me’

      This embed is invalid   " /> Clay Buchholz has been on the disabled list seven times in his nine-year career. He’s never made 30 starts or topped 200 innings in a season. He’s made 16 or fewer starts in four of the last seven seasons. Should the Boston Red Sox starter be considered “injury prone?” It seems fair to use the label, all things considered...

At The Break: The State Of Your Boston Red Sox

While they have won 10 of their last 15 games, it's hard to get too excited about the 2015 Carmine Hose. At the All-Star Break, they are still in last place in the turgid American League East. And, while they are a hell of a lot closer to first place than they were a few weeks ago (6.5 games), they still have to climb over four teams to get to the top of the pack. Moreover, they...

Red Sox Midseason Grades- Starting Rotation

Going into the season, the Red Sox starting rotation was their biggest question mark. Once Jon Lester chose to sign with the Cubs, many expected the Sox to package some of their prospects together for an ace, but that didn’t happen. Instead, a handful of middle/bottom of the rotation arms were added, and confidence was put in the lineup instead. Now 89 games into the season, Red...
