Is pretty good at throwing strikes repeatedly, and is at his best when inducing plenty of groundball outs. Has good size for a big-league pitcher.
Flaws: : His stuff is not overpowering, even at lower levels, so he has a tendency to get hit harder than he should for the highest level of baseball.
Buchanan was his usual average self on Tuesday night, but kept the Phillies in a game that they ultimately won. His next start will be against the Marlins at home on Saturday.Analyst: David Kerr
Buchanan only made it through four innings on his Wednesday start. Although he allowed four runs, only one was earned, but he did walk four batters. He required 87 pitches to get through four innings. He fared much better in his last start, and he will hope to get back on track in his next start. Buchanan should remain on the waiver wire in your league.Analyst: Colby Conway
Buchanan has a 3.30 ERA in the month of August following his fourth quality start of the month. His next start will come on the road against the Braves on Wednesday.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Despite allowing only two earned runs on Sunday, the Phillies rookie hurler was forced to settle for a loss after his offense failed to come through for him. He is now 6-7 with a 4.25 ERA and 1.28 WHIP through 13 big league starts while owning a 53:19 K:BB rate over 78.1 innings. He has certainly shown some promise at times this season, but at the age of 25, he is far to inconsistent to warrant ownership outside of NL-only leagues. He will look to keep up the pace when he takes on the Cardinals on Saturday.Analyst: Matthew Beck
