The Red Sox have decided to treat the remainder of the 2014 regular season like Spring Training, auditioning many of its players for next season. Two of those players are pitchers Clay Buchholz and Koji Uehara.
Buchholz is known to run hot or cold during any given season. There does not seem to be a rhyme or a reason why this takes place. Yes, he is injury prone, which he demonstrated each year of his contract with the Red Sox. Some years, like 2013, he bounced right back to top form after spending the heart of the season on the disabled list. He completed the regular season with 11 wins and an ERA of 1.74. Once he got going, he could not be stopped.
