Clay Buchholz's first season with the Phillies might be over after just two starts. In the 7.1 innings he has amassed, he has yielded 16 hits, which have been the most in baseball, while allowing 10 earned runs with just five strikeouts.

An MRI on Wednesday revealed the injury.

Buchholz will get a second opinion from renowned surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Monday and the course of treatment will be decided then.

There's wide range of outcomes for injuries similar to Buchholz's, as laid out over MLB Trade Rumors, from no surgery (Steven Strasburg, Tyler Skaggs), to eventual surgery (Homer Bailey) to serious enough to end a career (Cliff Lee).

Lawyer: Suspect admits ramming truck into crowd in Stockholm
The failed asylum seeker had been given four weeks to leave Sweden in December after his final appeal failed. Four people died in Friday's crash, two Swedes, a Belgian and Chris Bevington , 41-year-old British man.

The Phillies said that Buchholz suffered a partial tear of his right flexor pronator mass, which connects the forearm to the elbow.

Buchholz's absence will provide the Phillies a chance to get a look at someone now in the starting rotation at Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Or they can get a first look at Nick Pivetta, Ben Lively and Mark Appel, who've yet to reach the majors.

After the game, reporters expected to hear manager Pete Mackanin say that Herrera had tweaked something.

The Phils have several pitchers on the 40-man roster at Triple A. They chose Eflin because, "after what he did a year ago, and he's healthy, he's the guy we want", Mackanin said. Adam Morgan had to enter the starting rotation. "The Mets beat us. You shake it off and come out and play today".

SC guard P.J. Dozier signing with agent
For his sophomore season, Dozier averaged 13.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.6 steals per game. Now he's committed to an National Basketball Association draft set for June 22.

The slow start didn't owe to a lingering health issue: Buchholz said warming up Tuesday was the best he felt, up until the injury flared. Every starter save for pitcher Matt Harvey contributed a hit by the fourth inning as the Mets tallied 20 safeties, including 14 for extra-bases and seven homers.

Eflin beat out Jake Thompson, who pitched poorly in his first two starts at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

The Phillies began Wednesday tied with the St. Louis Cardinals for the worst ERA in the National League at 5.40.

"It's a lot of mistakes", Mackanin said when asked about the Mets' success. Lucas Duda compiled his fifth multi-homer game against the Phillies, mashing one over the batter's eye wall in deep center, an estimated 448 feet. You don't see many hitters diving at a fastball low and away and yanking it out the ballpark.
