Buchholz promoted, possibly groomed for pen

Postby bigh0rt » Tue Jul 10, 2007 4:29 pm

Now how long is it before Buchholz is in a Boston uniform? The right-hander — who is 7-2 for Portland with a 1.77 ERA, along with 116 strikeouts in 86 2/3 innings — was promoted to Pawtucket last night.

“My [Double-A] manager called me and said, ‘I might not see you again,’” Buchholz said. “So I’m taking that to mean either he’s getting fired or I’m going up to Triple A.”

And maybe higher. On his ESPN.com blog, Peter Gammons reported that the Red Sox may begin grooming Buchholz for a relief role — much as they did with Jonathan Papelbon in the second half of the 2005 season — and bring him up to Boston in six weeks. He would go back to starting in 2008, but would give the Sox another power arm in their bullpen for September and beyond.

Crap, it was supposed to be posted in the Minor League Forums. I'll flag my own post. :*)

Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

Any concern over his last few starts? Only 3 IP last outing in Pawtucket I believe. His numbers are going down (36% Krate now at 17% I think), but I believe they're asking him to work on his fastball command. Anyone else heard anything?
