David Buchanan: Will play in Japan in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan signed a one-year, $750,000 contract with the Yakult Swallows of the Nippon Professional Baseball League, Corey Seidman of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Buchanan was 10-9 with a 3.98 ERA and a 95:40 K:BB in 167.1 innings at Triple-A Lehigh Valley last season. He was released by the Phillies in November. Buchanan failed as a starter in the majors, but he has a good chance of finding success overseas.

David Buchanan: Released by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Buchanan was released by the Phillies on Wednesday.

He was designated for assignment last week and it seems the two sides opted to part ways so that Buchanan could explore other options. The 27-year-old righty was never able to establish himself as a reliable back-end starter in Philadelphia, as he posted a 5.01 ERA and 13.5 percent strikeout rate in 192.1 innings (35 starts).

Phillies' David Buchanan: Sent off 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buchanan was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Friday.

With the number of higher profile prospects coming up the pipeline, there simply wasn't room for Buchanan to stay on the 40-man roster. There's still hope for the 27-year-old, as he was a serviceable starter with good control at Triple-A last season. That being said, his ceiling now sits more at a back-end starter or even a long reliever in the majors.
