Blue Jays flip weekend starts of Mark Buehrle, David Price


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/2/2015) The Blue Jays have announced that they have flip-flopped starters Mark Buehrle and David Price in the rotation. Buehrle will now pitch Sunday against Baltimore with Price moved up to Saturday.

The decision was made to give Buehrle more rest, according to MLB.com. Buehrle conceded in August that he doesn't generally feel to be in peak condition this time of the season and that 2015 is no exception.


Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle rolls Sunday to 14th victory


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/30/2015) Blue Jays veteran starter Mark Buehrle didn't need to be great Sunday against Detroit. His team's torrid offense made sure of that.

But Buehrle was excellent anyway in raising his record to 14-6. He gave up just one earned run on five hits in six innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

The Tigers were held to no RBI hits - only groundouts scored their runs against him.

Buehrle, who already has more wins than in any season since 2008, has won five of his last six decisions.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/25/2015) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle had a rought night on the mound Tuesday, as he took a no-decision in the 6-5 win over the Rangers. Buehrle allowed five runs on seven hits over six innings.

Buehrle was locked into a slugfest with fellow left-hander Derek Holland, as the two teams exchanged blows over the first four innings. Buehrle served up solo home runs to Rougned Odor and Delino DeShields as part of the damage against him.


Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle struggles in loss to Phillies


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/19/2015) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle was due for a dud. And it came Wednesday night in Philadelphia.

The veteran surrendered four runs on seven hits in just four innings to take a loss that lowered his record to 13-6. It marked his shortest outing of the season. He walked none and struck out two.

His struggles began immediately in a three-run first keyed by run-scoring hits off the bats of Darin Ruf and Aaron Altherr. Jeff Francoeur slammed a solo home run off him in the third.

Buehrle had 16 quality starts in his previous 17 outings. His poor effort lifted his ERA to a still-strong 3.45.


Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle remains on roll in Thursday win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2015) Someone needs to tell Mark Buehrle that he's 36 years old and supposed to be on the downside of his career. His run of consistency and strong performances continued for the Blue Jays on Thursday afternoon against visiting Oakland.

Buehrle helped his team run its winning streak to 11 with another fine effort. He allowed two runs on seven hits in seven innings with two walks and two strikeouts. He has won four straight decisions to raise his record to 13-5 while shrinking his ERA to 3.31.

The left-hander lost his shutout on an RBI triple by Billy Burns in the eighth. Burns scored after Buehrle departed.

Buehrle has 16 quality starts in his last 17 outings. He has given up just 12 earned runs in his last 47 2/3 innings covering seven starts. He appears destined to win more games this season than he has since 2002, when he won 19.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays' Mark Buehrle stays strong on the mound in win Thursday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/6/2015) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle was solid in his outing against the Twins on Thursday. He allowed three runs on five hits over seven innings. The left-hander walked one and struck out one, throwing a very efficient 51 of his 83 pitches for strikes.

Buehrle (12-5, 3.34 ERA) did have trouble keeping the ball in the park however, as all three runs scored on him came on home runs. Trevor Plouffe took him deep with a two-run shot in the fourth inning, and Aaron Hicks added the solo homer in the seventh. 

But those ended up being nothing more than a footnote, as the Jays won the game 9-3, securing the four-game home sweep of the Twins.

Buehrle has been very good on the mound over the past month or so. After Thursday's performance, he is 4-1 with a 2.41 ERA over his most recent seven starts. In that same stretch, he has issued a total of two walks.


Bullpen blows win for Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/1/2015) Blue Jays veteran starter Mark Buehrle threw 89 pitches Saturday. Perhaps if he had tossed 100 or more, he would be celebrating a victory.

Instead, he was lamenting a no-decision and his team's defeat as his bullpen blew the 5-4 lead with which he departed.

Buehrle surrendered three earned runs on five hits in seven innings with no walks and three strikeouts. His struggles were limited to a Ben Zobrist homer in the first, as well as a two-run single by Eric Hosmer and RBI single by Kendrys Morales in the sixth.

The right-hander has been on a tremendous roll with 14 quality starts in his last 15 outings. His 3.32 ERA would be his lowest since 2005 if maintained.


Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle gives up 10 hits, three runs Sunday


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/26/2015) Blue Jays starting pitcher Mark Buehrle didn't have his best stuff on Sunday against the Mariners.

Buehrle allowed three runs on 10 hits in 5 2/3 innings of work. He managed to strike out three batters, while allowing just one walk. 

Buehrle (11-5) now has a 3.29 ERA with 67 strikeouts and 21 walks in 134 innings this season.


Mark Buehrle wins 11th for Blue Jays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2015) Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle improved to 11-5 with a win Tuesday against Oakland. 

Buehrle allowed one run in seven innings to win his second straight decision. For the fourth straight start, he didn't walk a batter. This was also the ninth consecutive start in which he allowed two earned runs or less while going at least six innings, becoming the first pitcher in franchise history to accomplish that feat.

"I think any time streaks like that happen, it's going to come to an end, especially for me because I'm not striking guys out," Buehrle said, per MLB.com. "Positioning guys, putting guys behind where the balls are going to be hit to, that obviously helps me out. I don't think I ever would have said I'd accomplish that."


Blue Jays' Mark Buehrle picks up 10th win of the season Saturday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/11/2015) Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle was strong once again in his start on Saturday against the Royals. Buehrle allowed two runs on five hits over seven innings of work in the 6-2 victory. Buehrle struck out two and did not walk a batter, and he has not allowed more than two earned runs in a start since May 29.

Buehrle (10-5) gave up an early run in the first inning, but was able to settle in after that while his offense got him a lead. The veteran southpaw was stingy in this one, retiring 14 in a row at one point. 

"Mark continues to roll," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said, per MLB.com. "It was a tough day to pitch, [it was] really hot out there."

He will enter the All-Star break with a 3.34 ERA through the first half.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2015) Those who deemed Blue Jays veteran Mark Buehrle a has-been after his ERA soared to 6.75 in early May have been eating a lot of crow lately.

That remained on the menu Saturday when Buehrle recorded his eighth consecutive quality start to lower his ERA under 4.00 (3.90) for the first time since April 15. He held the Orioles to just two runs on six hits in seven innings with one walk and five strikeouts. That was good enough only for a no-decision in an eventual defeat.

A fielder's choice and sacrifice fly plated the runs off Buehrle, who has allowed just 19 runs in his last 64 1/3 innings pitched. He will try to remain on a roll next Friday against Texas.

Buehrle improved to 7-4 this season with the win and now has an ERA of 4.35 this season.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

"I didn’t change anything. I think it was a lot of luck after the first inning," Buehrle said. "There were a lot of balls hit in the air towards the warning track. That’s a sign of not being on my game. … I wouldn’t have thought I’d go a complete game with the stuff I had today."

Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle can't quite keep up in Saturday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Blue Jays veteran southpaw Mark Buehrle performed well Saturday against visiting Seattle. Just not well enough.

Buehrle took his fourth loss despite giving up only three runs on five hits in 7 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out four.

He allowed two big hits early that cost him the game - a Kyle Seager home run in the second and two-run double by Willie Bloomquist in the third. He then faced two batters over the minimum the rest of the way.

"Early in the season, pitching wasn't doing good and hitting was here. Now the pitching's there, and the hitting's not doing so well," said Buehrle to MLB.com. "We've run into some tough pitching right now. It's a long season, we need to try and get the pitching and hitting going at the same time, as well as the bullpen. Try to get all three aspects of the game going at once, hopefully turn us around."

Buehrle has been solid over his last four starts, surrendering 10 earned runs in his last 27 1/3 innings to lower his ERA from 6.75 to 5.13. He is set to start again Friday in Minnesota.

"He's a master, really, of keeping them off-balance," Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said. "And when he's on, you go up there, he's not going to overpower you, but you have no idea what he's going to throw you. He can throw anything at you at any time."
