Farrell: Buchholz Moved To The Bullpen

Before Friday's night game at Skydome, Red Sox manager John Farrell announced that Clay Buchholz - struggling with a 6.35 ERA through 10 starts this season - is headed to the bullpen.

Eduardo Rodriguez will take Buchholz's place in the rotation, and is scheduled to start against the Orioles in Baltimore on Tuesday night.

Buchholz has pitched only twice out of the pen in his 10-year career, once in 2007 (three scoreless innings in his third major league appearance) and once in 2008 (one inning in a blowout).

Maybe the uncertainty over Donald Trump's run for president is on Clay's mind.
