Player Notes
Despite allowing six hits, Clay Buchholz pitched four scoreless innings Wednesday as a Red Sox split-squad and the Twins played to a 4-4 tie.

Advice: Buchholz struck out four and walked one. He finishes the spring with a 2.84 ERA, though his earlier results might have been more encouraging than his later ones. He'll face the Phillies, and hit for himself in the NL park, on Opening Day.

The Red Sox have named Clay Buchholz their Opening Day starter.

Advice: Buchholz will take on the Phillies on April 6 and will be followed by Rick Porcello. The veteran right-hander is coming off a 2014 season that saw him post a 5.34 ERA over 28 starts, but he's been excellent this spring with an 18/3 K/BB ratio over 15 innings. The Red Sox' rotation is looking pretty shaky heading into the season.

Clay Buchholz yielded six runs and 12 hits over five innings Friday in a loss to the Braves.

Advice: That's three more hits than he allowed in his previous three starts combined. Buchholz seemed to be focusing more on his fastball than usual today, probably in an effort to build up stamina. He still struck out six batters, but he also gave up plenty of hard contact. Overall, it's been a rather encouraging spring for him, particularly with the 18/3 K/BB ratio and just one homer allowed in 15 innings.
