    Blue Jays' Mark Buehrle expected to retire after Sunday's start

    Blue Jays pitcher Mark Buehrle will start Sunday's regular-season finale against the Rays and is expected to announce his retirement from baseball shortly thereafter, Bruce Levine of 670 The Score reports. David Price was initially on track to start Sunday's game, but the Blue Jays will give Buehrle the nod in what amounts to a curtain call for his excellent 16-year career. Per Levine's report, Buehrle is only expected to pitch two innings to reach 200 for the season, the 15th consecutive campaign in which he'll have reached that mark. Despite his respectable 3.82 ERA and 1.21 WHIP on the season, Buehrle is expected to be left off the Jays' postseason roster, as the team is likely to go with a four-man rotation. Buehrle's low-to-mid-80s fastball velocity wouldn't make him particularly useful in a relief role.

    Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle goes five, gets no decision vs. Braves

    Blue Jays starter Mark Buehrle gave up two runs (one earned) on six hits and one walk while striking out two over five innings Tuesday against the Braves. He threw just 66 pitches after getting a cortisone shot in his throwing shoulder Sept. 8, so owners were probably fortunate to get five innings out of Buehrle on Tuesday. The veteran lefty will make his next start Sunday against the Red Sox and lines up to make two more starts after that before the conclusion of the regular season.

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.

    Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle struggles in loss to Phillies

    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.
