Description: Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle improved to 10-1 Sunday with a win over Kansas City.
Insight: Buehrle cannot be stopped. The veteran lefty hasn't lost since April 25th and his 2.10 ERA is third-best in the American League. It would be a shock if he isn't invited to his fifth All-Star Game in Minnesota next month.

Description: Toronto left-hander Mark Buehrle recorded his MLB-leading ninth win Tuesday against the Rays.
Insight: He gave up eight hits and four runs (three earned) in 6 2/3 innings and has a 2.33 ERA this season. The left-hander has increased his two-seam fastball usage and allowed just two homers in 73 1/3 innings. Buehrle has never won 20 games, but he's nearly halfway there and it isn't even June yet.
Hot5/7/2014 10:21:00 PM
Description: Toronto left-hander Mark Buehrle was sensational in Wednesday's win over the Phillies.
Insight: By going seven shutout innings, Buehrle was able to record his sixth victory of the season. That leads all of Major League Baseball. He's also tied with Oakland's Sonny Gray for seventh in ERA (1.91). Buehrle's next start is scheduled for Monday against the Angels.
4/25/2014 9:43:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle allowed 12 hits, three walks and seven runs (six earned) in 5 1/3 innings Friday against the Red Sox.
Insight: Coming into Friday, batters had gone 3-for-38 (.079) against Buehrle with men on base and he had stranded 92.9 percent of baserunners, so he was due for some regression. His ERA rose from 0.64 to 2.16.
Hot4/19/2014 6:41:00 PM
Description: Toronto starter Mark Buehrle is now 4-0 with a 0.64 ERA after beating the Indians Saturday afternoon.
Insight: Buehrle gave up four hits over seven scoreless innings. He's given up two runs in 28 innings this season. The left-hander has stranded 92.9 percent of his baserunners and he has a .253 BABIP even though his line-drive rate is near 28 percent. The regression is coming.
Hot4/13/2014 8:05:00 PM
Description: Toronto starter Mark Buehrle improved to 3-0 with seven strong innings Sunday at Baltimore.
Insight: Buehrle allowed one run on five hits in seven innings and now has a 0.86 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. The 35-year-old left-hander has stranded 90 percent of his baserunners so far. In 14 big league seasons, he never had an ERA better than 3.12 and only once had one worse than 4.28.

7/25/2013 9:50:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle fired a two-hit shutout with nine strikeouts against the woeful Houston Astros Thursday night.
Insight: Buehrle came in having allowed 139 hits and 66 earned runs in 123 innings this season, so facing the Astros was a nice relief for the left-hander. It doesn't mean that he's a fantasy option, however.
7/5/2013 10:50:00 PM
Description: Toronto lefthander Mark Buehrle threw seven shutout innings on the way to evening up his record to 5-5.
Insight: Buehrle had been ugly in his past two outings, yielding four earned runs in each. Despite the big effort, he's too inconsistent to be relied upon in any fantasy rotation with a 4.50 ERA and 1.363 WHIP.

Insight: It was Buehrle's best outing of the season. He has a 5.90 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP in 61 innings and has no fantasy value.
4/20/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle limited New York to three earned runs despite allowing eight hits and walking a batter in seven innings Saturday.
Insight: Buehrle has held opponents to five earned runs in 13 1/3 innings over his last two starts, but he has allowed 32 hits in 23 innings this season and is walking a fine line every time he steps on the mound.
Cold4/10/2013 7:36:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle has allowed 14 hits and 11 earned runs in 9 2/3 innings this season.
Insight: Buehrle pitched in the American League with the White Sox for his entire career prior to last season, but it's possible his stuff just isn't good enough anymore to get batters out.
9/30/2012 11:28:00 AM
Description: Marlins starter Mark Buehrle's status for his final start of the season is up in the air, manager Ozzie Guillen said on Saturday.
Insight: Buehrle (13-13, 3.74 ERA) just eclipsed 200 innings but it seems odd the team would feel the need to limit him given he's reached that plateau in 12-straight seasons. Wade LeBlanc would likely start in Buehrle's place.
5/26/2012 9:38:00 PM
Description: Mark Buehrle turned in another solid performance on Saturday, limiting the Giants to just two runs on eight hits over 7.1 innings. The victory was Buehrle's fifth of the season and his fourth win in his last five starts.
Insight: Buehrle finishes the month of June with a 4-0 record and a 3.19 ERA.
5/6/2012 1:42:00 PM
Description: Mark Buehrle tossed a complete game five-hitter against the Padres on Saturday, giving up one run and striking out three.
Insight: The Marlins didn't need to worry about their closer issues on Saturday, as Buehrle (2-4) went the distance. The lefty has thrown five quality starts in six outings this season.
4/18/2012 10:44:00 PM
Description: Mark Buehrle picked up his first win for Miami, giving up one run in eight innings while striking out five.
Insight: Buehrle has posted three straight quality starts to begin the season. He pitches to contact, so don't expect many strikeouts, but his low walk totals also keep his WHIP down. Just be prepared for the occasional shelling when he doesn't have his best command.
4/12/2011 9:01:00 AM
Description: White Sox SP Mark Buehrle allowed just 2 hits and a walk in 8 innings of shutout baseball, then watched as Chicago's bullpen gave the A's 2 runs; he struck out just one batter.
Insight: The trouble with Buehrle is you just never know if you will get a gem like this or if he will allow huge numbers across the board. Because of his inconsistency he is best left for use in AL-only formats.
