MILWAUKEE — Clay Buchholz gets another start on the comeback trail.
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo liked what he saw from Buchholz in his start Sunday and decided against shuffling the rotation.
“[He] will stay in turn,” Lovullo said. “Clay is going to get another opportunity.”
Buchholz allowed one run on two hits in five-plus innings on Sunday in his Arizona debut. He got a no-decision in the Mets’ 4-1 win.
The 33-year-old righty threw 61 pitches in his first start in more than a year. He suffered a season-ending injury when he tore a tendon in his right forearm on April 11, 2017, while pitching for Philadelphia.
Buchholz, a two-time All-Star with Boston, made five minor league starts for Kansas City and Arizona this season. He was promoted from Triple-A Reno for the start against the Mets.
