Red Sox Claim Reliever Taylor Buchholz off Waivers From Toronto

Red Sox fans may see manager Terry Francona handing the ball off from one Buchholz to another in 2011, as the Sox have claimed right-handed reliever Taylor Buchholz off waivers from Toronto on Monday.

Theo Epstein announced the transaction, which brings the current tally to 36 spots filled on the team’s roster.

Buchholz has a career 4.39 ERA in four seasons in the majors and posted a 3.75 ERA in Colorado and Toronto last season, after missing 2009 with Tommy John surgery.

The 29-year old is not related to Clay Buchholz.
