Clay Buchholz Excited to Play for Bobby Valentine, Bob McClure, Ready for Strong April in 2012

Clay Buchholz picked up his game before going on the disabled list last season. However, the righty wasn't pleased with the way he started off.

Buchholz posted a 1-3 record and a 5.33 ERA last April, something he's working hard to make sure doesn't happen again. He's already thrown a number of bullpen sessions early on in spring, and he's excited to work with new manager Bobby Valentine and pitching coach Bob McClure to get off on the right foot in 2012.

Check out the video above to hear more from Buchholz.
