CLAY BUCHHOLZ LIKELY GONE FOR REST OF PHILLIES’ SEASON!

By Sarah Berkowitz

The Phillies announced yesterday that Clay Buchholz suffered a partial tear of his right flexor pronator mass, which connects the forearm to the elbow.

Translation:

He’s likely out for the season!

Bucholz left the game in the third inning Tuesday night after allowing six runs. Buchholz, 32, will meet with surgeon James Andrews on Monday for a second opinion, which the Phillies said will determine a “further course of treatment.”

Buchholz had a similar injury in 2015 and missed the final three months of the Boston Red Sox season. He elected against surgery that summer, but the recurrence may not give Buchholz a choice this time. He spent time on the disabled list in six of the last 10 seasons.
