Clay Buchholz Out 4-6 Months

Lesley Tedeschi Apr 19th 3:04 PM EDT.

Clay Buchholz underwent surgery on Tuesday to repair his torn flexor tendon in his right forearm. The Philadelphia Phillies will be without the right-hander for the next 4-6 months while he recovers.

The likelihood that Buchholz is out for the rest of the season is pretty high, but there is no official statement on that.

Buchholz pitched last last for two innings before injuring himself and being taken out of the game. He had an MRI the next morning that revealed the tear, and had a second opinion on Monday before deciding on surgery. Buchholz is a two time All-Star and will definitely be missed by his teammates.
