Clay Buchholz (SP) Waiver Wire Pickup for Week 19

Brant Tedeschi Jul 29th 6:24 PM EDT.

Clay Buchholz is fresh off the DL and put together a solid game against the Chicago Cubs on July 24th going 6.2 innings with 5 strikeouts, one earned run while picking up his 3rd win on the year.

Buchholz does not have many starts under his belt this year (8) but has performed well with the opportunities he has been given. On the year, he has a 1.79 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, 7.1 K/9 with a 3-1 record. He has not given up more than 2 runs in any start this season.

Any team looking to lower their ERA and WHIP on the year has to strongly consider Buchholz.

The biggest knock against Buchholz right now is his ability to pitch deep into games and his health. He has a hard pitch count limit of 100 and has only reached 7 full innings once in eight starts.

He is a recommended add for both H2H point leagues and category based leagues. If he can stay healthy he can make a big impact.

Buchholz is still available in 39% of leagues.
