So the minor league signings are coming fast now.
The Jays are going to sign Sunscreen Boy, Clay Buchholz to a minor league deal. Or at least I’m guessing a minor league contract, with a major league number:
Sources: Blue Jays to sign RHP Clay Buchholz. Buchholz was 7-2 with a 2.01 ERA in 16 starts for the Dbacks in 2018.— Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) February 28, 2019
Buchholz was a Red Sox for 10 seasons, before being traded to the Phillies in December of 2016. He didn’t have a good time with the Phillies, pitching just 7.1 innings in 2017. He was signed and released by the Royals after that and then the Diamondback after that.
Career he has a 4.24 ERA (4.00) FIP in 224 games, 206 starts. He’s 34.
And I’ll admit to not being a fan. I’m hoping this doesn’t mean we are sending Ryan Borucki to the minors.
Quick, buy stock in companies which make sunscreen.
Here are the financial details
Buchholz deal with jays is thought to be for about 3M plus 3M in incentives. Pending physical.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) March 1, 2019
