In a remarkable showing of deja vu, the Phillies have likely lost a starting pitcher in April for the second consecutive season.
Clay Buchholz underwent surgery Tuesday on a torn flexor tendon in his pitching arm.
It’s likely, say reports, that he’ll pitch again in 2017.
Maybe we should compose a poem for ol’ Clay:
Roses are red
Violets are blue
In the words of Scandal (with Patty Smyth),
Clay, “goodbye to you.”
Zach Eflin is taking the ball tonight against the Mets. He’s pitching in place of Buchholz.
