Boston manager John Farrell hasn’t dedicated to Buchholz making his next start, Peter Abraham from reviews. When requested following Sunday’s game, Farrell stated, “I’ve not had an opportunity to take a look at the other choices are available and just what we’d do additionally.”
Unless of course president of baseball procedures Dave Dombrowski pulls of the trade, Farrell’s choices are limited. Three from the starters at Triple-A have previously had possibilities and unsuccessful within their cameos. Probably the most likely Triple-A option, Henry Owens, published another command-challenged outing Sunday and doesn’t appear prepared to help a fighting team. The main one pitcher of intrigue is independent-league signee Aaron Wilkerson (3-1, 2.12 ERA in six starts), but he’ll have to be put into the 40-man roster. With Dombrowski telling Christopher Cruz of Mass Live the trade market continues to be slow to build up, it appears that Buchholz will be receiving a minumum of one more start next Saturday from the Angels.
