The Philadelphia Phillies have acquired pitcher Clay Buchholz from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for a minor league second Basement.
Buchholz, 32, went 8-10 with a 4.78 ERA in a career-high 37 games (21 starts) for the Red Sox last season.
“We are excited to welcome Clay Buchholz to Philadelphia,” said Vice President & General Manager Matt Klentak. “Clay had a very productive tenure with the Red Sox, and we look forward to seeing what he can do in a Phillies uniform. He is a welcome addition to our young starting rotation.”
Buchholz is a two time American League All-Star, and pitched a 9 inning no hitter in just his second career start in 2007 .
The Phillies sent minor league second baseman Josh Tobias to the Red Sox in the exchange.
