Walker Buehler News
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery on Tuesday, according to his Instagram account. Buehler was already slated to miss the rest of this season, and now he'll almost certainly miss all of the 2023 season as well. It will be his second Tommy John procedure, which typically takes a longer recovery period than the first surgery. It's big news for one of the best pitchers in baseball when he's healthy. The 28-year-old right-hander went 6-3 with a 4.02 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 65 innings over his 12 starts for the Dodgers this year. Fantasy managers in redraft leagues should have already dropped him, and now he won't be an option in fantasy leagues in 2023.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (elbow) will have season-ending elbow surgery on Aug. 23. The procedure will be performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache. Buehler recently resumed playing catch for the first time since suffering a Grade 2 flexor strain in his right elbow on June 10, but he apparently had a change of plans and will now undergo surgery. The Dodgers and fantasy managers were hoping to get the 28-year-old right-hander back later this year, but he can now be dropped in all single-year formats. In 12 starts this year, Buehler went 6-3 with a 4.02 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 58 strikeouts and 17 walks in 65 innings pitched. With Buehler out for the year and Clayton Kershaw (back) on the injured list, Dustin May's (elbow) impending season debut this weekend will be a big boost for LA's rotation.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler (forearm), who has been sidelined since June 10 after suffering a Grade 2 flexor strain in his right forearm, played catch on Monday for the first time. Buehler is still a significant ways away from a potential return to the team, and his role is contingent on his recovery. "It was good," said manager Dave Roberts. "I think he just made 20 throws but to have a baseball in his hand was good for everybody." The 27-year-old won't be able to return until later in the second half of the season, but he needs to remain stashed in all single-year fantasy formats. Before the injury, Buehler had gone 6-3 with a 4.02 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, 58 strikeouts and 17 walks in 65 innings over his 12 starts.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler got off to an expectedly slow start in 2020. He was one of the players who suffered from the inability to get a full dose of spring training before the regular season finally began and was brought along slowly by the club. Buehler made his first appearance in the team's fifth game, lasting 3 2/3 innings. He would only go as long as six IP once all season. An IL stint due to a blister further conspired to limit Buehler's workload. All told, it was a letdown for fantasy managers despite a strong final stat line that included a 3.44 ERA, 0.95 WHIP, and 28.6% strikeout rate due to a light workload and lesser counting stats. Buehler is entering his age-26 season, has no health concerns, and has the support of baseball's best lineup. If he can enter the 2021 MLB season with some semblance of normalcy, he should finish as a top-five starter and is absolutely worth the top-20 pick it will take to secure his services.
