Steve Buckley says the Red Sox could send Clay Buchholz to Triple-A Pawtucket as he re-builds himself as a pitcher
Let's take a look at Clay Buchholz for a second and we got valuable members played buckle why I you have -- welcome -- beer -- -- -- well. Look at this a nine point 09 ERA. And by the way that flat. A ball where the ball -- the batting average and hit a lot of home runs. You don't want to okay. We'll be made the the fastball that was fairer and more importantly it's not up around 95 of which makes him eminently suitable what do you. I'm not seen. What it comes down to a local the F serious back injury last year he's rebounding from a serious back injury I think he needs to learn how to pitch again. I don't think he's in pain I'm just guessing here on that he's had a great let it go we think Y I I think he. I -- keep remaking himself as a pitcher and he doesn't have the comfort level -- pitching coach with whom he was very close in by the way he was afraid of that thing. -- I don't think you respect to Curt Young last year sum his comments would suggest there was a disconnect. And maybe he doesn't know the new pitching coach and fortunately the pitching coach you Lexus and Rory. How long leash for this guy I know there's an option it's unlikely that they maybe send him down but. There could be here reinforcement coming in Daisuke Matsuzaka. If this continues today think about letting him pattern reconstruct itself out of the pocket. Well I think -- system you'd have to in not not just because of his bad pitching but you also have to think that the long term future of Clay Buchholz as an investment. And is he's not he's still a kid to some degree and he's been around those seven. But he's a younger guy and he is going to get screwed up -- power them do something about it he doesn't have that kind of figured where it's ridiculous to even mention.
