Mark Buehrle SP TOR 11 Days

Buehrle lasted only 3.1 innings Sunday against the Tigers, giving up five runs (but just two earned) on nine hits, striking out four while walking none.

While this outing didn't kill Buehrle's ERA, thanks to three unearned runs after Jose Reyes's error in the first, he didn't pitch well for the third time in his last four outings. It's hard to invest much trust in Buehrle at this juncture.

Buehrle (11-8) was lit up by the visiting Orioles on Tuesday, getting blasted for 10 hits -- two of them homers -- while giving up four earned runs in four innings. He also struck out three and walked three in the loss.

At this rate, the once 10-1 Buehrle is in real danger of somehow finishing the season at .500 or worse -- remarkable considering his torrid start to the season. His ERA has shot up from 2.10 to 3.27 since June 1, an 11-start span in which he's served up 11 bombs in 64.2 innings after giving up just two in his first 81 innings from April to June. Buehrle's struggles and inability to keep the ball down, mixed with a variety of other issues -- primarily offensive -- are a big reason why the Jays blew the AL East lead and now sit five games back of the Orioles. The 35-year-old draws a very tough matchup in his next start Sunday against the Tigers.

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.

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.
