Clay Buchholz was the topic of trade rumors throughout the offseason and was also the topic of discussion in Spring training. So now with the 2009 Major League Baseball season almost a quarter of the way complete, what does Buchholz’s future look like in 2009?
I don’t think anybody knows.
One thing is for certain, however, as the 24-year-old is tearing it up in Triple-A Pawtucket. The right-hander took a perfect game into the ninth inning on Monday for the PawSox.
So with the starting rotation struggling for Terry Francona and the local nine, Red Sox nation should look out for a minor league call up for the right-hander as Buchholz could be donning a Sox uniform in the near future.
