The Red Sox have traded Clay Buchholz to the Philadelphia Phillies.
Boston will receive minor-league second baseman Josh Tobias, who played in Class A last year.
Buchholz's departure leaves six pitchers vying for spots in the Red Sox's 2017 rotation: Chris Sale, David Price, Rick Porcello, Drew Pomeranz, Eduardo Rodriguez, and Steven Wright.
