Clay Buchholz Has Surgery, Out 4-6 Months

Philadelphia Phillies’ starting pitcher Clay Buchholz is having surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right forearm.  He was placed on the 10-day disabled list and is expected to have a recovery time of four to six months.  The Phillies are preparing for his season to be over.  

The injury occurred in a game that he pitched against the New York Mets last week.  The two-time MLB All-Star played with the Boston Red Sox for 10 seasons before he was traded to the Phillies in the offseason.  Throughout his career, Buchholz is 81-62 with a 4.02 ERA, and played a huge role in Boston’s 2013 World Series Championship.  

Buchholz is in the final year of a contract that is paying him $13.5 million this season.
