Buchholz to the DL

Postby Don G. » Wed May 14, 2008 12:39 pm

as per rotoworld

Red Sox placed RHP Clay Buchholz on the disabled list with a broken nail on his right middle finger.

Buchholz was knocked around by the Twins in his last outing, giving him a 5.53 ERA on the year. He was scheduled to start Sunday against the Brewers and there's no word yet who'll replace him.

Probably as a result punching a wall or something after sucking so badly over his last couple starts.

This might well be true - the local broadcast of the game against the Twins showed him throwing stuff around after he was pulled.

Nick Cafardo, Globe Staff wrote: BALTIMORE - According to acting manager Brad Mills, Clay Buchhholz' stint on the DL is due to a concern that 1) Buchholz' tender middle finger as a result of a torn fingernail, needs to heal; and 2) the possibility he could alter his delivery and injure a shoulder or an elbow if he pitched with it. Of course, the Sox also needed to bring up an outfielder, and did so with Jonathan Van Every, who starts in CF today.

Buchholz said he ripped the nail across the top of his right middle finger while throwing a 2-seam fastball warm-up pitch before the start of the second inning of his last start. He said he didn't tell anyone about it, hoping to be able to get through the game. Buchholz said he was shut down from throwing yesterday, today and likely on the off-day tomorrow. He'll be looked at by doctors when he returns to Boston tomorrow. "It happened at the right time for them, worst time for me," said Buchholz, who said he spoke to manager Terry Francona, who was attending the funeral services for his mother-in-law in Arizona. Francona spoke to him about concerns of possibly causing more injury by over-compensating and also stressed the need for a roster spot to bring up an outfielder with J.D. Drew down with a sprained left wrist and Crisp's illness. "I don't like not pitching for a couple of weeks, but it is what it is," said Buchholz.

so what are the chances Buchholz gets sent back down to the minors? I still think he has some value, but it'd be pretty hard to hold onto him in a re-draft league if he's down in AAA for any length of time

Considering his last 2 starts were total disasters and Buchholz is out at least 15 days I think it's possible he'll be activated from the DL and sent to AAA when the 15 days are up. I think it will depend on how close Colon is to being ready to make a start for the big club.

You think Colon is going to get the call anytime soon. I thought about drafting him late and even picking him up at one time but the roster space could not be wasted.

Should I pick up now and see what comes of it al or do I have time to wait?
