Pitcher of the Month, May: Clay Buchholz

In a month in which he won an unprecedented four out of five SoxProspects.com Pitcher of the Week polls (April 27-May 3, May 4-10, May 11-17 and May 25-31) it was inevitable that Pawtucket RHP Clay Buchholz would take Pitcher of the Month Honors for May. Buchholz allowed five earned runs on 29 hits (.142 BAA) over 40.1 innings pitched, earning a 3-0 record in six May starts with a 1.12 earned run average, striking out 40 opposing batters while walking only five. On the season Buchholz is 3-0 with a 1.47 earned run average in 55 innings pitched over nine starts, striking out 52 and walking 12, while holding opposing batters to a .149 average. He was twice named International League Pitcher of the Week in May, for April 27-May 3 (he made a start May 3) and May 25-31.
