Latest Update David Buchanan improves to 5-5   Fri Jul, 11, 05:20 AM

While Buchanan pitched an absolute gem here against the Brewers, he also now finds himself back in Triple-A as the team prepares for the hallowed return of Cliff Lee. With the All Star break coming and the Brewers not needing a fifth starter until the weeks following the break, Buchanan's demotion means the team can have a little more flexibility with the roster and keep a spot ready for when Lee returns to pitch on July 19. Buchanan's 4.40 ERA will not be missed, but he will be on-call for when the Phillies eventual fire sale takes place and they need an emergency starter.Analyst: Howard Bender

Assets & FlawsComplete Stats

Assets:   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 and Roberto Hernandez are candidates to lose their rotation spot when Cliff Lee returns
  • With Cliff Lee set to return to the Phillies starting rotation following the All-Star break, either Buchanan or Hernandez will be sent to the bullpen or demoted. No matter which candidate gets sent packing, neither are worth more than a matchup play at this point in the season so it isn't going to effect their fantasy value too much either way.
