Minor leagues

Buchholz was drafted by the Red Sox in the supplemental first round of the 2005 draft. The Red Sox obtained their supplemental pick, the 42nd overall, as compensation for losing free agent Pedro MartĂ­nez to the New York Mets.[2]

Buchholz pitched 41 1/3 innings for the Lowell Spinners of the New York-Penn League, compiling a record of 0-1 with 45 strikeouts in fifteen starts. He then pitched for the Wilmington Blue Rocks (Single A-Advanced) and the Greenville Drive (Single A). Between the two teams, Buchholz struck out 140 and walked 33 in 119 innings while going 11–4.

Buchholz started his first spring training game in 2007 against the Tampa Bay Rays. He pitched 4.2 innings, gave up seven hits and three runs, and recorded three strikeouts. While competing for the Portland Sea Dogs in 2007, Buchholz played in fifteen games, winning 7 and losing 2. His success led him to be chosen to play in the All-Star Futures Game at AT&T Park.

Buchholz was promoted to the Pawtucket Red Sox, the AAA affiliate of the Red Sox, on July 8, 2007. He finished the AAA season with a 1-3 W-L record, while recording 55 strikeouts, 13 walks, and a 3.96 era over eight starts in 38.2 AAA innings.

Major leagues

2007 season

Buchholz made his MLB debut with the Boston Red Sox against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on August 17, 2007 at Fenway Park. The Sox won the game 8–4 and he picked up the win, going six innings and giving up four runs (three earned). After the game, however, Buchholz was sent back down to the Sox' Triple-A team in Pawtucket. "I got my feet wet," he said to a reporter. "I hope I can come back in September and help out."[3] Before Buchholz' first major league start, Red Sox manager Terry Francona said: "This kid can come up and pitch a no-hitter, and he's going to go back down... If he throws a no-hitter I may send him back with a present. But he's going back."[4]

No-hitter

In Buchholz's second major league start on September 1, 2007, he became the first Boston Red Sox rookie to throw a no-hitter when he blanked the Baltimore Orioles 10–0. He threw 115 pitches, struck out nine, walked three, and hit Nick Markakis.[5] After the game, Buchholz told the media, "It's amazing. That's all I can say ... I'm in a blur right now." According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Buchholz became the third pitcher since 1900 to pitch a no-hitter in his first or second major league start. Bobo Holloman did it in his first start on May 6, 1953, for the St. Louis Browns at home against the Philadelphia Athletics, and Wilson Alvarez did it in his second start on Aug. 11, 1991, for the Chicago White Sox at Baltimore.[5] Buchholz became the eleventh Red Sox pitcher to throw a no hitter in Fenway Park history, and the seventeenth[6] in Red Sox history.

Following the game, general manager Theo Epstein and manager Terry Francona each independently confirmed that they had spoken by phone to each other in the seventh and eighth innings concerning Buchholz' pitch count. He had not thrown more than 98 pitches in a game all year, and was threatening to significantly exceed that total if he finished the game. Epstein reported that in no way would Buchholz have been allowed to face a batter after reaching 120 pitches, expressing concern about excessive pitches potentially damaging such a young and inexperienced arm. Buchholz finished the game with 115 pitches, allowing Francona to escape what would have been an unpleasant decision to remove a pitcher from the game in which he was throwing a no-hitter.[7]

Buchholz' no-hitter was the third of a record-setting four caught by Jason Varitek. The first two were for Hideo Nomo and Derek Lowe (in which the final score was also 10-0); the fourth was Jon Lester's on May 19, 2008, against the Kansas City Royals, which was also the first no-hitter in major league play after Buchholz'.

2008 season

Buchholz pitching for the Portland Sea Dogs, Double-A affiliates of the Boston Red Sox on August 25, 2008.

Red Sox pitching coach John Farrell stated that Buchholz would most likely be in line for 180-190 innings in the 2008 season.[8] On May 15, Buchholz was placed on the 15-day disabled list as the result of a torn fingernail.[9] He was sent to Pawtucket following the injury, and remained there for several weeks to work on his fastball. On July 11, he was recalled to Boston and was part of their regular pitching rotation, though he did not record a single win after his return. On August 20, 2008, as the Red Sox were trying to sweep the Orioles, the team that Buchholz had no-hit last year, he gave up a 4-0 lead by allowing three runs in the second inning, and two more in the third. He was removed after only pitching 2.1 innings. In his previous start, he had only lasted three innings. In 2008, the Red Sox were 3-12 in Buchholz' fifteen starts. After the game, Buchholz was sent down to Double-A Portland. Buchholz stated "I've never had a streak like this," and "I've never been one to say the pressure was too much for me, but I've felt like I've had a lot of weight on my shoulders just trying to be perfect and trying to do everything as well as I could to help this team win". [10] Following the 2008 season, Buchholz pitched in the Arizona Fall League.

2009 Season

Following spring training, Buchholz was optioned to Pawtucket.[11]

In his eighth start at Pawtucket in 2009, Clay took a perfect game into the ninth inning against the Louisville Bats, but it was broken up after a leadoff single; ultimately, he pitched a one-hit shutout.[12]

After a July 12 win before the All Star break, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced that Buchholz would be activated to pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays on July 17, in order to give more time off to the starters who were in the All Star game. [13] Buchholz went on to win the game, pitching five and two thirds innings, allowing four hits with one run, while walking three and striking out three. It was his first major league win since May 2, 2008.

It was originally intended that Buchholz should only make that spot start, in order to set up a six-man rotation for a six-game road trip; however, he was recalled from Pawtucket on July 21 after veteran knuckleballer Tim Wakefield was placed on the disabled list. He has since become a fixture in the Red Sox rotation and he won several big games against notable pitchers of the year including Roy Halladay and Ricky Romero.

Scouting report

  • Four-seam fastball (92-95 mph, hit 97 mph)
  • Two-seam fastball (88-91 mph)
  • Curveball (75-79 mph)
  • Changeup (79-82 mph)
  • Slider (80-84 mph)

Buchholz throws a four-seam fastball, a two-seam fastball, a slider, a curveball, and 79-82 mph straight changeup. His changeup and curveball are considered elite pitches. Over the course of the season, Buchholz typically throws his fastball 92-94 mph, although towards the end of the 2006 season, his fastball regularly hit 95 or 96 mph. Buchholz also played outfield at Angelina College. In 2009 Buchholz has shown flashes of being able to establish command of his fastball and it presently sits in the 93-95 mph range. [14]

In November 2009, he married Lindsay Clubine, a former suitcase model on Deal or No Deal and host of HDNET's Get Out.

He is not related to Colorado Rockies pitcher Taylor Buchholz. [17]

2009 Season

Following spring training, Buchholz was optioned to Pawtucket.[11]

In his eighth start at Pawtucket in 2009, Clay took a perfect game into the ninth inning against the Louisville Bats, but it was broken up after a leadoff single; ultimately, he pitched a one-hit shutout.[12]

After a July 12 win before the All Star break, Red Sox manager Terry Francona announced that Buchholz would be activated to pitch against the Toronto Blue Jays on July 17, in order to give more time off to the starters who were in the All Star game.[13] Buchholz went on to win the game, pitching five and two thirds innings, allowing four hits with one run, while walking three and striking out three. It was his first major league win since May 2, 2008.

The Red Sox pitching staff floundered in the second half of the year. Wakefield, Beckett and Lester were the only dependable starters in the first half (John Smoltz, Daisuke Matsuzaka and Brad Penny all had losing records). While Jon Lester remained effective in the second half, Josh Beckett began to struggle, and when All Star Tim Wakefield was placed on the Disabled List, Buchholz replaced him in the rotation. Clay's pitching down the stretch was a large part of keeping the Red Sox afloat and helped them make it into the playoffs (along with a strong return from Matsuzaka). He finished the season 7-4 with a 4.21 ERA and 68 strikeouts in 16 starts.

2010 Season

Buchholz delivered a strong first half of the 2010 season. On the strength of his 10-4 record, and a 2.45 ERA, he was selected to the American League All-Star Team. In the month of June, Buchholz went 3-1 with just a 1.84 ERA, including a 5-hit shutout at Baltimore on June 4th.[14] On the road in the season's first half, he went 5-1 with a 1.70 ERA. Though earning a spot on the roster, Buchholz was not called upon to pitch in the All-Star Game; he pulled a hamstring June 26th during an interleague game against the San Francisco Giants and was on the disabled list.

He made his first start after his stint on the DL on July 21, 2010 against Gio Gonzalez of the Oakland Athletics. He pitched 4 innings, giving up five earned runs, with two strikeouts and three walks in a 6-4 loss. Buchholz returned to his pre-injury form after the start in oakland by going 4-0 in august with a 1.03 ERA and winning the AL pitcher of the month award.
