Clay Buchholz has surgery on elbow, likely to miss rest of the season

Clay Buchholz had surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn flexor tendon. The Phillies announced that his recovery time is estimated to be between four and six months, meaning his season is likely over.

Fantasy Impact

Clay Buchholz was a low risk/high reward candidate for fantasy owners heading into 2017. The hope was that a change of scenery (and a shift from the American League East to the National League East) and a healthy season (always a question mark for Buchholz) would yield promising results. Unfortunately, Buchholz is now likely done for the year after two disappointing starts. This will likely not hurt fantasy owners much, as Buchholz was a taken as a late-round flier or grabbed as a free agent pickup in deeper leagues.

Clay Buchholz heading to the DL?

An MRI last week revealed a partial tear in Phillies' SP Clay Buchholz's right forearm. Buchholz will seek out a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews.

Fantasy Impact

If surgery is required, Buchholz could miss an extended period of time. There wasn't much to be excited over with Buchholz. In two starts, Buchholz went 0-1 in 7 1/3 innings with a 12.27 ERA.

Clay Buchholz traded to Phillies for prospect

Clay Buchholz was traded to the Phillies on Tuesday in exchange for second base prospect Josh Tobias, the Philadelphia Daily News' Matt Gelb reports.

Fantasy Impact

This was a salary dump for the Red Sox who are over the salary cap after picking up Chris Sale. They are deep in starting pitching and could afford to trade Buchholz and his $13.5 million salary. The move helps Buchholz's fantasy value as he is guaranteed a roster spot and the move to the NL from the AL East may help his stats

Fantasy Impact
