Clay Buchholz is suffering from “general arm fatigue”

Oct 24, 2013, 9:13 AM EDT

Clay Buchholz is not injured, he and the Sox say. And he is still scheduled to start Game 4 on Sunday in St. Louis. But the Red Sox’ ace did acknowledge last night that he is suffering from arm fatigue, reports WEEI.

 “Just a little bit of fatigue setting in … It’s just a little dead at certain points. It’s not a pinpoint straight point where you say, ‘That’s where it is.’ … I’ve got maybe one start left so this is where you want to throw it all on the line.”

His velocity will be worth watching on Saturday night. It has been down in his postseason appearances.

    No doom here – it’s nothing a little Vaseline & Bullfrog can’t fix.

      Do not forget the beer and chicken also.

        Vaseline and beer?

        Sounds like an awesome Friday night to me.

    How are we going to be watching Buchholz’s velocity Saturday night if he’s pitching Sunday?

    Should have thrown Peavy or Buchholz against Wacha since the game is lost anyway.

    I’m not buying the “fatigue” line. I think the Sox have decided that Doubront would be a better option than Buchholtz in St. Louis.
