Clay Buchholz earns another start for Diamondbacks
Clay Buchholz gets another start on the comeback trail.
Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo liked what he saw from Buchholz on Sunday and decided against shuffling the rotation.
“(He) will stay in turn,” Lovullo said. “Clay is going to get another opportunity.”
Buchholz allowed one run on two hits in five-plus innings in his Arizona debut Sunday. He got a no-decision in the Mets’ 4-1 win.
The 33-year-old righty threw 61 pitches in his first start in more than a year. He suffered a season-ending injury when he tore a tendon in his right forearm April 11, 2017, pitching for Philadelphia.
Buchholz, a two-time All-Star with Boston, made five minor league starts for Kansas City and Arizona this season. He was promoted from Triple-A Reno for the start against the Mets.
