Taylor Buchholz (born October 13, 1981, in Lower Merion Township, Pennsylvania) is a pitcher with the Colorado Rockies in Major League Baseball. His rookie season was in 2006.

Buchholz stands 6 feet 4 inches tall, and weighs 220 lbs. He bats and throws right-handed. He lives in Springfield, Pennsylvania, during the offseason.

He attended Springfield Township, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, the same high school that produced Mike Scioscia. As a high school standout, Buchholz dominated batters in the Delaware County Central League. In a May 2000 home game against feared rivals, the Penncrest Lions, Buchholz delivered a one-hit performance, retiring 21 of 22 batters in an impressive 4-0 victory. Buchholz only surrendered one hit during the game, a scorching single by the Lion's talented center fielder, Jeff Smith, who drove a 3-0 fastball past third baseman, Michael Rappaport. Professional scouts determined that Buchholz was dealing fastballs at nearly 97 miles per hour during the 2000 season.
