Analysis: The 31-year-old was 7-7 with a 3.26 ERA in 18 starts this year, striking out 107 and walking 23 in 113 1-3 innings. His season was cut short by a strained right elbow that caused him to go on the disabled list on July 11. A two-time All-Star, Buchholz is 73-51 with a 3.85 ERA in nine big league seasons.

Dombrowski also ruled out Buchholz for the Florida Instructional League.
