Mark Buehrle pitched inadequately in a no-decision against the Mariners on Sunday, allowing three runs on 10 hits over 5 2/3 innings.
The run total on Buehrle's line wasn't awful, but he found himself in consistent trouble and only the general ineptitude of the Mariner offense prevented more scoring against the veteran. He allowed a solo homer to Austin Jackson in the first inning and two more runs in the third while striking out three and walking one. The crafty lefty has shown craftiness this season in compiling a strong 3.29 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 67/21 K/BB ratio over 134 innings. This was the first time in his last eight starts that he's failed to pitch at least seven innings. A home date with the Royals awaits. Jul 26 - 7:50 PM

Mark Buehrle spun seven innings of one-run ball in an easy victory over the Athletics on Tuesday.

The A's pushed across their lone run when Jake Smolinski hit an RBI single in the sixth inning. It was one of eight hits the lefty allowed while walking none and striking out three. Buehrle has been utterly dominant in nine starts since the beginning of June, carrying a 1.52 ERA. Overall, he owns a 3.23 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and a 64/20 K/BB ratio in 128 1/3 innings. He'll close out a road trip in Seattle in his next start.
Jul 22 - 12:50 AM

Mark Buehrle yielded two runs over seven innings in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Royals.

Buehrle continues to roll. The veteran southpaw held the Royals to just five hits while walking none and striking out a pair. He also hit a batter. Buehrle now has a 1.55 ERA over his last eight starts, which has brought his ERA down from 4.97 to 3.34 for the year. He's now 10-5, so he has reached double-digit victories for the 15th consecutive season.

An X-ray on Mark Buehrle's right ankle came back negative.

Buehrle was hit in the ankle by a comebacker in Monday's loss to the White Sox. He gutted it out for an eight-inning complete game, but it swelled up on him later. He'll surely be sore for a couple days but is expected to be fine for his start this weekend versus the Royals.
Jul 6 - 10:26 PM

Mark Buehrle went all eight innings in a complete game loss to the White Sox on Monday, allowing four runs -- all unearned.

Buehrle was out-dueling Chris Sale until he relented three runs in the eighth inning on a Jose Abreu RBI single and a two-run double to Melky Cabrera. The lefty allowed nine hits and struck out only two batters, but didn't issue any walks. As far as unearned runs go, Buehrle hasn't allowed more than two in his last eight starts. He sports a terrific 3.38 ERA with a 1.19 WHIP and a 59/20 K/BB ratio over 114 1/3 innings. He will make his final start of the first half in Kansas City against the Royals.
Jul 6 - 10:15 PM

Mark Buehrle twirled seven innings of one-run ball Wednesday in a dominant victory over the Red Sox.

Buehrle yielded just four hits, issued no walks, and he struck out seven. The only run that came against him was on a Pablo Sandoval groundout in the top of the seventh inning. Buehrle, 36, will carry a 3.64 ERA and 1.19 WHIP into his next start on the road against the White Sox.
Jul 1 - 3:54 PM

Mark Buehrle delivered a strong start in Friday's victory over the Rangers, allowing just two runs on five hits over seven frames.

The soft-tossing left-hander punched out five on the evening while issuing a pair of free passes. Staked to a monster lead early on, Buehrle was in cruise control most of the night. Now 8-4 on the season, he'll carry a 3.81 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 50/20 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Red Sox.
Jun 26 - 9:46 PM

Mark Buehrle logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Orioles on Saturday, allowing just two runs on six hits over seven strong innings.

The veteran southpaw punched out five on the afternoon while walking one. He has pitched much better since early May, posting a 2.66 ERA and 34/11 K/BB ratio over 64 1/3 innings in his last nine starts. He'll look to continue that roll when he takes on the Rangers on Friday.
Jun 20 - 4:08 PM

Mark Buehrle took a no-decision on Monday after limiting the Mets to two runs (one earned) over seven innings.

Buehrle was in line for the loss until Jose Bautista hit a game-tying solo home run in the ninth inning. The lefty scattered four hits and a walk while striking out five. Both runs came on RBI doubles in the sixth inning, sparked by a Jose Reyes throwing error that allowed the leadoff batter to reach base. Buehrle has pitched well in three June starts, lowering his ERA to 4.01 with a 1.28 WHIP and a 40/17 K/BB ratio over 85 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Orioles at home in his next start.
Jun 15 - 11:09 PM

Mark Buehrle got a no-decision, allowing two runs in six innings, in Tuesday's walk-off win versus the Marlins.

Both runs came on solo home runs: Giancarlo Stanton hit one in the first inning, and Christian Yelich hit the other in the fourth. They were two of eight hits the lefty allowed on the evening along with a walk and three strikeouts. Buehrle has pitched much better as of late, posting a 2.86 ERA over his last seven starts. On the season overall, he has a 4.25 ERA with a 1.33 WHIP and a 35/16 K/BB ratio over 78 1/3 innings. He'll face the Mets on the road next.
Jun 9 - 9:37 PM

Mark Buehrle needed only 93 pitches to complete a shutout against the Nationals on Wednesday.

Buehrle had his ground ball stuff in top form tonight, as 21 of 23 batted balls he induced were of the ground ball variety. He scattered six hits and a walk while striking out two. Buehrle has not been nearly as good or as consistent as he was last season, but Wednesday's outing lowers his ERA to 4.35 with a 1.31 WHIP and a 32/15 K/BB ratio over 72 1/3 innings. The lefty will look for more of the same his next time out, at home against the Marlins.
Jun 3 - 9:21 PM

Mark Buehrle registered the 31st complete game of his career in Friday's victory over the Twins.

It certainly didn't appear as if it was going to be a lengthy outing for Buehrle, who surrendered four runs to the Twins in the first inning. He settled in masterfully afterwards though, allowing just one hit the remainder of the night. He racked up three strikeouts on the night without issuing a walk, needing just 111 pitches to navigate through nine innings. He'll look to carry over this strong effort when he takes on the Nationals in Washington on Wednesday.
May 29 - 11:33 PM

Mark Buehrle logged a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Mariners, surrendering three runs on five hits over his 7 1/3 innings of work.

The veteran southpaw also issued three walks on the afternoon while striking out four. Kyle Seager blasted a solo homer off him in the second inning, but the critical blow proved to be a two-run double off the bat of Willie Bloomquist in the third. He'll look to improve upon his troublesome 5.13 ERA and 1.51 WHIP when he takes on the Twins in Minnesota on Friday.
May 23 - 3:35 PM

Mark Buehrle put in a solid day's work against the Astros on Sunday, allowing four runs in an eight-inning complete game.

Veteran southpaw Buehrle entered the game with an ugly 5.54 ERA and 1.69 WHIP. He pitched better than that against the Astros, who scored two of their four runs on solo home runs by Luis Valbuena and Colby Rasmus in the first and sixth innings, respectively. Buehrle struck out five and walked two in the contest and finished out the contest himself, though he still ended up on the losing side of the ledger. While we like him more than his ERA, he only has value in deeper AL-only leagues, as his upside is limited by a lack of strikeouts (23/11 K/BB ratio over 47 innings) and a propensity to surrender the long-ball (he's already allowed eight home runs). Buehrle will face the Mariners in a home start next he toes the rubber.
May 17 - 4:37 PM

Mark Buehrle improved to 5-2 after dealing six innings of two-run ball in a 10-2 shellacking of the Orioles on Tuesday.

Buehrle allowed both runs to score in the third inning when Jimmy Paredes brought in a pair with a single. He gave up only four hits in total while walking one and striking out four. The lefty has pitched better than his 5.54 ERA indicates, though he's still only viable in AL-only leagues. He also carries a 1.69 WHIP and an 18/9 K/BB ratio over 39 innings. Buehrle matches up with the Astros in Houston next.
