Former All-Star Buchholz expected to start for Diamondbacks on Sunday

May 19 2018 1:28 AM

Clay Buchholz is returning to the majors.

Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Buchholz is expected to start for his team on Sunday in their series finale against the New York Mets. Buchholz last made a major-league appearance on April 11, 2017.

Buchholz spent 10 seasons with the Boston Red Sox from 2007-16. He accumulated a 3.96 ERA and was an All-Star in both 2010 and 2013.

He was traded to the Phillies prior to the 2017 season. He made two starts for Philadelphia, registering an 0-1 record with a 12.27 ERA before undergoing surgery to repair a torn flexor tendon in his right arm.

Buchholz signed a minor-league contract with Arizona earlier this month after he was released by the Kansas City Royals.

The Diamondbacks have opened 2018 with a 25-18 record, but they have lost seven of their last eight games.
