Buehrle surrendered four runs on six hits in Sunday's loss to Houston.

Buehrle walked two batters while striking out five across eight innings on his way to loss number three on the year. He now holds an ugly ERA of 5.36 to go along with a 1.57 WHIP. Buehrle has certainly struggled up to this point and he'll look to get back on track against the Mariners in his next start.

Buehrle gave up two earned runs on four hits and one walk with four strikeouts in six innings Tuesday against the Orioles.

He was staked a nice lead by his teammates and was able to cruise to his fifth victory of the season while only throwing 78 pitches (53 strikes) in six innings. Buehrle takes the ball again on Sunday in Houston.

Buehrle (4-2) gave up one run on six hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings Wednesday in a win against the Yankees.

Despite that 4-2 record, this modest outing -- Buehrle's first win against the Yankees in 11 years -- may qualify as his finest start of the season. With just a 14:8 K:BB over 33 innings, the veteran is pitching to more contact than ever, and it hasn't been kind to his numbers. On the bright side, both of his quality starts this year came against the Orioles, and he'll next start in Baltimore on Tuesday.

Buehrle allowed eight runs on 11 hits, walking two and striking out just one over 4.1 innings of a 9-4 loss to Cleveland Friday night.

The veteran dropped to 3-2 with an unsightly 6.75 ERA after another rough outing. The Indians put up multiple runs in the third, fourth, and fifth innings after his mates had given him a 4-1 lead early. As he typically does, he was throwing strikes (51 of 80 pitches), but he was not locating within the zone resulting in too many solid hits.

Buehrle struck out two and walked one while holding the Orioles to three runs on eight hits over six innings to improve to 3-0 on the season.

For the third time this season, the Toronto offense has provided Buehrle with a ton of run support. True to form, Buehrle threw 59 of his 98 pitches for strikes Tuesday, while generating just six swinging strikes. He'll make his second start of the week Sunday against the Rays at Tropicana Field.

Buehrle (2-0) gave up three runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings in Wednesday's win over Tampa Bay.

That's two quality starts and not a lot of fantasy excitement from Buehrle so far, which is pretty much what you can expect from him. Buehrle won't hurt you in ERA overall, but his strikeouts and WHIP will not be assets.

Buehrle gave up two runs on eight hits over six innings in a winning effort over the Orioles on Friday.

The victory was the 200th of his career. He needed just 84 pitches (50 strikes) to record 18 outs Friday, and it was a very typical start for the veteran left-hander. Buehrle's next start lines up for Wednesday at Rogers Centre against the Rays.

Buehrle pitched 3.1 shutout innings on Thursday, giving up two hits while striking out two against the Rays.

It's difficult to read too much into Grapefruit League statistics; however, it's good to see Buehrle be as efficient as he was. Buehrle has pitched at least 200 innings in 14 straight seasons and with the injury to Marcus Stroman that will hold him out this season, getting quality performances out of Buehrle and R.A. Dickey will be even more important.

Buehrle spun eight shutout innings, allowing three hits while walking one and striking out 10 in a 1-0 win over Seattle on Wednesday night.

Buehrle (13-10, 3.39 ERA) saved his best for last as he baffled the Mariners for eight-plus innings in his final 2014 outing. It pushed his innings pitched total to 202 - the 14th consecutive season he has eclipsed 200 innings, and he logged double-digit strikeouts for the first time since his first start of the year. He may not be a huge fantasy asset, but he is a class act, and he is building upon a very solid career.
