Clay Buchholz News Archive
Buchholz's last two appearances have impressed manager John Farrell, who said the right-hander will used situationally rather than exclusively in a mop-up role, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports. "The way he's thrown the ball of late, yeah," Farrell said. "He's going to throw strikes, he's got a full complement of pitches he uses, even in shorter stints, he's done a good job of that. If the situation arises, depending who is available, he will be called upon... I think he's thrown the ball very good."
