Player Notes
Clay Buchholz gave up six runs in six innings Wednesday in a loss to the Angels.

Advice: Buchholz started out well enough, retiring 11 of the first 12 hitters he faced before giving up a double and an RBI single in the fourth. It was the fifth in which things unraveled, as four singles and two walks led to five runs. There was also a botched popup in there, but since the Red Sox got an out on the play, it didn't matter overly much. If the Red Sox were still in contention, Buchholz wouldn't have survived the inning. As is., he was allowed to come back out for the sixth and finish on a high note, striking out two of the last three guys he faced. Still, even with some encouraging signs of late, Buchholz simply isn't a viable fantasy pitcher right now.

Clay Buchholz struck out nine batters while allowing two runs over seven innings Friday in a no-decision against the Astros.

Advice: Buchholz left with the lead, but the Astros tied things up in the eighth inning on a botched play at the plate. While he didn't get the win, it was another encouraging performance. He gave up seven hits and walked two while throwing 75 out of 110 pitches for strikes. We still wouldn't trust him in mixed leagues, but he's moving in the right direction.
