In a NESN interview, Theo Epstein on Clay Buchholz “We set it up so that if he pitches well, stays healthy and avoids becoming fatigued. Where he can help us…potentially going forward.”
Buchholz pitched well last night. He kept the Jays down for the first four innings. In the fifth, he gave up back-to-back hits and then screwed himself defensively. Buchholz missed the fist base bag and threw the ball away after fielding a bunt right after giving up the two hits. Without his own errors, only one run would have scored. All told, Buchholz threw all of his pitches for strikes and for the most part keep the Jays off balance. He is ready to contribute in October out of the pen or the rotation.
