Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Blanks Giants over seven innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (11-1) tossed seven scoreless innings in a win over the Giants on Wednesday. He allowed just three hits and two walks while striking out eight.

Buehler was masterful Wednesday evening, throwing 70-of-98 pitches for strikes and allowing just one baserunner to reach scoring position. The 26-year-old has undoubtedly been one of the best starters in baseball this year, registering a quality outing in 18 of his 21 starts. He's gone at least seven while striking out eight or more batters over his last three appearances and has not allowed a home run since June 24. Buehler owns a 2.19 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 139:31 K:BB over 135.2 innings. He's in line for a challenging matchup against the Astros next week.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: No-decision despite dominant outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler didn't factor into the decision Thursday against the Giants despite tossing 7.1 innings of one-run ball, allowing five hits and a walk while fanning nine.

Buehler did everything he could to come away with his 11th win of the season, but the bullpen surrendered four runs in the top of the ninth and that forced the right-hander to settle with a no-decision. The 26-year-old is in the midst of a career-best season, though, posting a career-best 2.31 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP while also tossing three straight quality starts. His next outing is slated to happen next week on the road against the same opponent, this time in San Francisco.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Fans eight in win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (10-1) allowed two earned runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight across seven innings, earning the win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Buehler allowed a pair of doubles that led to two runs against him. However, he provided another solid performance for his 16th quality start of the season, leading all of baseball. The 26-year-old has allowed just five earned runs over his last four starts. He carries a 2.37 ERA and a 0.91 WHIP with 122 strikeouts in 121.1 innings. His next start is scheduled Thursday against the Giants.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Six shutout frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (9-1) won Saturday's 22-1 victory over Arizona, allowing no runs on three hits and two walks with six strikeouts in six innings.

Buehler was staked to a nine-run lead after two innings and cruised to an easy ninth victory. His most troublesome inning was actually the first, but a five spot by Los Angeles in the bottom of the inning eased all concerns. The 26-year-old heads into the All-Star break with a 2.36 ERA and a 26:114 K:BB ratio.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Labors in Miami
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler gave up four runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks over five innings during Monday's 5-4 loss to the Marlins. He had six strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.

Remarkably, it's the first time through 17 starts this season the right-hander failed to complete six frames. Miami struck for three runs during the third inning on three hits, an error and a hit-by-pitch and tacked on another run in the fourth. Buehler has a 2.49 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 107:24 K:BB across 108.1 innings, and he lines up for one more start before the All-Star break versus the Diamondbacks this weekend.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Impressive against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (8-1) earned the win Tuesday against the Giants after giving up an unearned run on three hits and a walk across 6.2 innings, striking out seven.

Buehler has tossed nine straight quality starts and continues to be one of the best pitchers in the National League, posting a 1.53 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP and a 54:19 K:BB during that nine-game span. The righty has also fanned at least six in three straight outings. He is slated to pitch again next week on the road against the Marlins.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Handed first loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (7-1) took the loss in Thursday's 4-0 defeat at the hands of the Cubs, allowing three runs on five hits with two walks and six strikeouts over six innings.

Buehler and Chicago starter Zach Davies were engaged in a tight pitchers' duel until the former allowed a Willson Contreras two-run homer in the sixth to go down 3-0. Buehler still pitched well enough to earn a quality start but that would be far from enough as Los Angeles was no-hit by the Chicago staff. The loss was his first since 2019 and snaps a 23-start stretch without a defeat for the 26-year-old right hander.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Flirts with history in seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (7-0) earned the win over Arizona on Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks while striking out 11 over 7.1 innings.

The right-hander made it through 7.1 frames without allowing a hit before David Peralta led off the eighth inning with a single. Buehler was pulled two batters later after a Nick Ahmed single, and he was charged with a pair of runs after both runners came around to score following his departure. Though Buehler's fantastic outing won't enter the no-hit annals, he tied the Dodgers' franchise record with his 23rd straight start without being charged with a loss. He'll carry a 7-0 record, 2.38 ERA and 88:19 K:BB into his next start, which lines up to come at home against the Cubs next week.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Stellar in third straight win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (6-0) fired six scoreless innings on five hits and three walks while striking out five to earn the win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Buehler threw 64 of his 96 pitches for strikes in his six scoreless frames. He is 5-0 in his last six starts with just five runs allowed. The 26-year-old leads the Dodgers rotation with a 2.38 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP in 83.1 innings. However, his 8.3 K/9 to this point in the season is the lowest rate of his career. His next start is scheduled for Saturday in Arizona.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Fires seven scoreless frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (5-0) earned the win Tuesday after blanking the Pirates across seven innings. He allowed two hits and a walk while striking out two.

Despite an uncharacteristically season-low two punchouts, it was another gem of a performance for Buehler, who blanked his opponent for the third time this season while pitching at least seven innings for the fifth time. The 26-year-old did have a close call in the first frame after Ke'Bryan Hayes swatted a foul pole-hugging solo home run, which was reversed after the official replay review showed Hayes failing to tag first base. With the win, Buehler extends his streak of regular-season starts without a loss to 20, the longest in the majors, while his WHIP of 0.91 checks in at 11th overall. Buehler lines up to make his next start at home Sunday against Texas.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Cruises to fourth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (4-0) earned the win over St. Louis on Wednesday, pitching six innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight.

The outing won't go down as one of Buehler's best this season -- he allowed three runs for the first time in four starts -- but it was more than adequate to secure a victory in a game during which Los Angeles put up 11 first-inning runs. The right-hander ran his record to a perfect 4-0 and extended his streak of regular-season starts without a loss to 19, the longest in the majors. He has posted a 2.82 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 70:13 K:BB across 70.1 innings this season to further cement his place among the league's top starters. Buehler's next start is expected to come at Pittsburgh next week.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Second straight one-run outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler started Friday's 8-5 loss to San Francisco, going six innings and allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and three walks with three strikeouts. He didn't factor into the decision.

Buehler pitched well despite his lowest strikeout total of the season, letting only two runs cross the plate in separate low-stress innings. Buehler has been extremely consistent this season, going between six and seven innings in every single start this season, though his 8.7 K/9 is a bit underwhelming for his lofty standards.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Stellar in win Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (3-0) allowed one earned run on six hits and one walk while striking out five across seven innings, earning the win over the Giants on Saturday.

Buehler gave up only one run, which came in the seventh inning. He likely could've had a scoreless outing if the Dodgers didn't let a blooper single drop due to miscommunication. The 26-year-old is unique in today's game, averaging over six innings pitched in an outing. The ability for him to constantly go deep into games while maintaining a 2.78 ERA and 0.89 WHIP makes him one of the better pitchers in baseball. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against the Giants.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Tosses seven strong frames
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler (2-0) earned the win Monday against the Diamondbacks after tossing seven scoreless innings, giving up one hit and four walks while fanning seven.

Buehler has fanned at least seven in five straight games, but his numbers across the board haven't been dominant when excluding the strikeouts -- he has given up two or more runs in five of his last six outings. This start was his best performance of the campaign, though, and he will try to repeat this level of dominance when he takes the ball during the upcoming weekend series against the Giants.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Next start pushed to Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler's next start will come Monday against the Diamondbacks, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The Dodgers will go with a bullpen game in Sunday's series finale against Miami as Buehler kicks off the series against Arizona (in Los Angeles). Buehler projects to take the ball a second time next week when the Dodgers travel to San Francisco. One win through six weeks has been disappointing for Buehler's fantasy managers, but around a few too many long balls he's been great with a 47:3 K:BB in 44.1 innings.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Goes seven innings in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler completed seven innings in a no-decision against Seattle on Tuesday, allowing four runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight.

The right-hander gave up only four hits in the outing, but three of them left the yard. Mitch Haniger touched up Buehler for two of the long balls, and the other came off the bat of Kyle Seager. Despite the homers, Buehler had a strong performance overall, collecting eight strikeouts and inducing 17 swings-and-misses. His strikeout numbers were down early in the campaign, but Buehler has now racked up at least eight K's in four straight contests. He has yet to complete less than six innings in a start this season, compiling five quality starts over his seven outings. Buehler's next start is tentatively scheduled for Sunday at home against Miami.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Punches out eight in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler allowed two earned runs on five hits and no walks while striking out eight across six innings Wednesday against the Cubs. He did not factor into the decision.

Buehler mowed through the Cubs with little trouble early on, surrendering only one hit through 4.2 innings. However, he surrendered a single to Matt Duffy before being taken yard by Jake Marisnick one batter later in the fifth to spoil his outing to some degree. Nevertheless, Buehler still pitched well and has now racked up a minimum of eight strikeouts in each of his past three starts. Though the team opted to give him extra rest after a rainout earlier in the week, Buehler currently lines up to make his next start Wednesday against Seattle.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Start moved to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler will start Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Buehler was expected to start Monday's series opener before the contest was postponed due to inclement weather. He's coming off a tough outing Tuesday against the Reds, surrendering five runs and striking out 10 over 6.1 frames.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Monday start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler won't start Monday against the Cubs as previously scheduled, as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Tuesday. Buehler is expected to start one of those two games.

Dodgers' Walker Buehler: Uneven start against Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buehler allowed five earned runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out 10 across 6.1 innings Tuesday against Cincinnati. He did not factor into the decision.

Buehler allowed a home run to Jesse Winker to lead off the game but then settled in to throw four scoreless innings. However, he ran into trouble again later in his effort, surrendering four earned runs across his final 2.1 frames. On the other hand, he did manage to rack up double-digit strikeouts for the first time since Aug. 21 of the 2020 campaign.
