  • Buehler registered a no-decision during Friday's 12-10 loss against the Phillies, allowing five runs on nine hits and one walk with three strikeouts in five innings. Buehler let two runs across in the second inning and three more in the fourth, all of them coming with two outs. The five runs surrendered nearly matches his total of seven through the 27-year-old's first 24.2 innings and caused his ERA to spike nearly one full run from 1.96 to 2.81. Additionally, Buehler has only struck out more than six batters once in seven starts after doing so 15 times last season. He's projected to start again early next week against Arizona.

  • Buehler will start Friday against the Phillies in place of Clayton Kershaw (hip), who was placed on the 15-day injured list, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports. The 27-year-old was scheduled to start on five days rest Saturday but will have his outing moved up a day due to Kershaw's injury. Buehler has a 1.96 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 32:9 K:BB through 36.2 innings this season, though his 21.8 percent strikeout rate would be a career low.

  • Buehler (4-1) got the win during Sunday's 7-1 victory over the Cubs, allowing one run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts in seven innings. Buehler permitted a run on two hits in the first inning but was lights-out thereafter, and he fell in line for the win after Los Angeles took the lead in the fourth. The 27-year-old has rebounded with three excellent outings -- one run allowed across 21 innings -- following three mediocre turns to open the season. He carries a 1.96 ERA into his next start, tentatively scheduled to come against Philadelphia on Saturday.

  • Buehler (2-1) earned the win over Arizona on Monday, tossing nine shutout innings during which he allowed three hits and struck out 10. Buehler dominated from start to finish in the impressive performance, retiring eight of the Diamondbacks' first nine batters and 16 of their final 17. The right-hander induced 14 swinging strikes, racked up a season-high 10 punchouts and didn't walk a batter for the first time in four starts. The shutout was both the first of Buehler's career and the first in MLB this season. He's started the season off well, posting a 2.55 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 21:6 K:BB across 24.2 innings. Buehler is in line to make his next start against Detroit on Sunday.

  • Buehler (1-1) took the loss during Tuesday's 3-1 defeat against Atlanta, allowing three runs on eight hits and one walk with two strikeouts in five innings. The typically sharp Buehler labored in this one as he permitted baserunners in each inning and all three runs came in separate frames, though he was able to keep his pitch count at 79 due to an uncharacteristically low two strikeouts. The bullpen kept Atlanta off the board but opposing starter Max Fried was untouchable all night and Los Angeles was only able to scratch across one run late. The 27-year-old Buehler has now surrendered multiple runs while failing to reach six innings or six strikeouts in any of his three starts. He has a prime opportunity to get back on track with his next start scheduled to take place in Arizona on Monday.
