Mark Buehrle tossed seven solid innings, allowing two runs, as he picked up his 12th win in Tuesday's easy 9-2 victory against the Cubs.

Shockingly, it's Buehrle's first win since July 30, a winless span of six starts. The Cubs were able to rack up 10 hits, but Buehrle was able to limit the damage. He walked none and struck out three as well. The lefty now owns a 3.31 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and a 105/43 K/BB ratio. Buehrle's next challenge will come in Baltimore when he takes on the Orioles on Monday.
Sep 9 - 11:49 PM

Mark Buehrle hurled eight shutout innings but was given a no-decision as the Blue Jays needed 10 innings to pull out a 1-0 victory against the Rays on Thursday.

It was Buehrle's most dominant outing in over three months, and he remains winless since July 30. The lefty limited the Rays to five hits -- all singles -- and a walk while striking out four. Buehrle will take his 3.34 ERA, 1.41 WHIP, and 102/42 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's home start against the Cubs.
Sep 4 - 10:10 PM

Mark Buehrle was charged with four runs over six-plus innings of work in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

Buehrle held the Yankees scoreless over the first six innings, but he unraveled in the seventh by allowing four straight batters to reach base. All of them ended up coming around to score. After beginning the year at 10-1, Buehrle has lost eight out of his last nine decisions.
Aug 29 - 11:55 PM

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports the Blue Jays have placed Mark Buehrle on revocable waivers.

Buehrle is owed $19 million in the final year of his deal in 2015, so interest in the 35-year-old may be hard to come by. The Angels, a team in serious need of another starter after Garrett Richards' injury, could be interested. Buehrle started the year strong and is 11-8 with a 3.41 ERA through 26 starts.
Aug 27 - 7:45 PM

Mark Buehrle allowed three runs over 6 1/3 innings but took a no-decision in Saturday's 10-inning win against the Rays.

Buehrle was able to pitch into the sixth inning for the first time in August. The lefty yielded eight hits and a walk while striking out two. The second half hasn't been kind to the 35-year-old, as he has a 6.23 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break. On the season, he has a 3.41 ERA, a 1.41 WHIP, and a 94/41 K/BB ratio. Buehrle will face the Yankees at home in his next start on Friday.
Aug 23 - 4:48 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 11-8 after allowing four runs in four innings in a loss to the Orioles on Tuesday.

Buehrle, perhaps predictably, has struggled since soaring to a 10-1 start with a 2.10 ERA through his first 12 starts. In 11 starts since, including Tuesday, he has a 4-7 record with a 4.73 ERA. He allowed a whopping 10 hits and three walks to the Orioles in his four innings. Now with a 3.27 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and 85/40 K/BB ratio, the lefty will try to stop the bleeding with Sunday's home start against the Tigers.
Aug 5 - 10:52 PM

Mark Buehrle held the Red Sox to one run in 6 2/3 innings to finally pick up his 11th win Wednesday.

Buehrle had been stuck on 10 wins for nearly two months, going 0-6 in his previous nine starts. He does have a favorable outing coming up next, facing an Astros team he's 4-0 with a 0.89 ERA against lifetime. That might be tasty enough to make him worth using in mixed leagues again.
Jul 30 - 10:20 PM

Mark Buehrle was tagged for six runs over three innings in Friday's loss to the Yankees.

It was his shortest start of the season. Buehrle allowed nine hits (including a pair of home runs) and one walk before being pulled. He has allowed 11 runs in nine innings over his past two starts, increasing his ERA from 2.64 to 3.19 in the process. He'll attempt to rebound against the Red Sox next week in Boston.
Jul 25 - 10:06 PM

Mark Buehrle wasn't very good but escaped with a no-decision Sunday, permitting five runs across six frames in a 9-6 victory.

Buehrle struck out five but allowed eight hits and uncharacteristically struggled with his control, walking three. He also balked in a run. After picking up 10 wins in his first 12 starts, Buehrle has gone winless in his last eight outings. He has a pedestrian 4.06 ERA over that stretch, as the early-season magic has faded. Buehrle will try to get back into the win column next weekend against the Yankees.
Jul 20 - 4:38 PM

Mark Buehrle lasted just five innings in a no-decision against the Rays on Friday, allowing a pair of runs on nine hits.

The veteran southpaw also walked one while striking out three on the night. He departed in line for his 11th victory, but his bullpen was unable to hold onto a 5-2 lead. He’ll head into the All-Star break with an impressive 10-6 record, 2.64 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 73/32 K/BB ratio over his first 126 1/3 innings.
Jul 11 - 10:57 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 10-5, allowing two runs over eight innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

Buehrle pitched well, but Jose Quintana was better, resulting in Buehrle taking his fourth loss out of his last five starts (the other being a no-decision). Buehrle limited the White Sox to six hits -- including Moises Sierra's fourth-inning solo homer -- while walking two and striking out five. Buehrle's stats remain impressive, as he has a 2.50 ERA, a 1.21 WHIP, and a 67/30 K/BB ratio. The lefty will face the Athletics on the road in his next start.
Jun 29 - 3:45 PM

Mark Buehrle took the no-decision, allowing four runs over 6 2/3 innings in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Buehrle allowed two home runs in an outing for the first time all season. He was victimized by Derek Jeter in the sixth and Brian Roberts in the seventh. Overall, the lefty allowed eight hits, issued no walks, and struck out three batters. Still with an excellent 2.52 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 62/28 K/BB ratio in 107 1/3 innings, Buehrle will go for his 11th win on Sunday at home against the White Sox.
Jun 24 - 10:29 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 10-4, allowing three runs (two earned) over six innings in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees.

A Brett Lawrie fielding error led to an unearned run being scored in the first inning. Buehrle then made a fourth-inning mistake, surrendering a two-run home run to Brian McCann. Overall, the lefty allowed six hits, walked two, and struck out four in the effort. He's lost each of his past three starts and now has a 2.32 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 59/28 K/BB ratio. Buehrle will face the Yankees again next week, but will have home field advantage.
Jun 18 - 10:20 PM

Mark Buehrle fell to 10-3, allowing four runs over 6 1/3 innings as the Blue Jays were defeated 4-2 by the Orioles on Thursday.

It was Buehrle's worst start since the end of April and it wasn't really that bad of a start. He made a mistake in the first inning, surrendering a two-run home run to Delmon Young, but was otherwise solid. He allowed eight hits overall while walking one and striking out three. Buehrle maintains a fantastic 2.28 ERA with a 1.23 WHIP and a 55/26 K/BB ratio in 92 2/3 innings. He'll look to rebound against the Yankees on the road in his next turn on the rubber.
