The Rockies have designated 28-year old righty reliever Taylor Buchholz for assignment. Buchholz pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Rockies this year and he was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP. He pitched in 111 games (8 starts) in his three years with the Rockies and he was 13-11 with 1 save, a 3.44 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. The Rockies are probably going to lose Buchholz as I don’t see him getting through waivers.
UPDATE: (9/10/2010) – The Blue Jays have claimed Buchholz off waivers.
