Buchholz will be watched closely in start vs. Twins

Lights, camera, action!

Clay Buchholz will know the extent of that phrase by the end of his outing against the Twins Monday night. According to a major league source, Buchholz will be watched closely by umpires, the MLB office, and by every network carrying the game and highlights of it.

Last week in Toronto, Buchholz was accused of doctoring the ball by two Blue Jays announcers. This will be his first start since those allegations.

MLB reviews every game, and it’s evident that Buchholz’s outing vs. the Blue Jays was reviewed as well. Considering that no action was taken against Buchholz in terms of a fine or suspension, it appears that those who watch these matters in the MLB office found no conclusive evidence of wrongdoing.
