John Farrell: ‘Nothing to hide’ for Clay Buchholz

05.06.13 at 5:06 pm ET

After five days of public conversation about whether or not Clay Buchholz did or did not use a foreign substance to improve his grip in his last start — a seven-inning, no-run masterpiece against the Blue Jays last Wednesday — the right-hander will take the mound against the Twins on Monday night. Manager John Farrell was asked whether he anticipated that the Twins might have his starter scrutinized for doctoring the baseball.

While Farrell couldn’t predict the Twins’ approach, he was confident that, even if there was an examination by the umpires of Buchholz, the outcome of such in inquest could be predicted.

“I don’t know that they would or if they choose to. There’s nothing to be hidden, nothing to hide on Clay’s part,” said Farrell. “We’re looking forward to Clay going out and pitching as he has all year so far.”
