Blue Jays claim RHP Buchholz from Colorado

BY foxsports • September 9, 2010

The Toronto Blue Jays have claimed right-hander Taylor Buchholz off waivers from the Colorado Rockies.

The 28-year-old Buchholz was designated for assignment on Tuesday. He was 1-0 with a 4.50 ERA in seven relief appearances with the Rockies.

Buchholz started the season in the minors while recovering from elbow ligament replacement surgery in 2009. He has a career record of 19-21 with one save and a 4.42 ERA over four seasons with Houston and Colorado.

The Blue Jays also moved righty Jesse Litsch to the 60-day disabled list on Thursday. He had season-ending hip surgery in early August and won't be ready until spring training.
