Red Sox Claim Taylor Buchholz
Today, the Red Sox claimed relief pitcher Taylor Buchholz (right), who, just to clear things up, is not Clay's brother. In 2010, Taylor Buchholz recovered from Tommy John surgery and only pitched in 9 games, going 1-0 with a 3.75 ERA. In the minor leagues this year, Buchholz actually did worse, going 1-1 with a 5.06 ERA. Since the Red Sox already have 6 eligible starting pitchers, so if he wants to make the team in Spring Training so he will probably have to settle to be a reliever. The Red Sox' 40-man roster stands at 36 with the addition of Buchholz. I hope that Buchholz #2 works out for the Sox as well as Buchholz #1!
