The Phillies on Tuesday acquired right-handed starting pitcher Clay Buchholz from the Red Sox in exchance for minor-league 2B Josh Tobias, a source tells CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury.
Buchholz, 32, spent 10 seasons with Boston and made the AL All-Star team in 2010 and 2013. He's had some dominant years — 17-7 with a 2.33 ERA in '10; 12-1 with a 1.74 ERA in an injury-shortened '13 — but he's never been the same pitcher from one season to the next.

Buchholz makes $13.5 million in 2017, the final season of his contract.
