Walker Buehler News
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler has been named the team's starter for Game 4 of the NLDS against the San Francisco Giants on Tuesday. The Dodgers are trailing 2-1 in the series and facing elimination, so it's no surprise that they are turning to one of their top arms, even though he'll be on short rest. Buehler pitched Game 1 of the NLDS last Friday and didn't have his best performance. He went 6 1/3 innings and allowed six hits, one walk and three earned runs while striking out five. If the Dodgers win on Tuesday, then Julio Urias would be the team's starter in Game 5.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler will take the mound for the team's final game of the year against the Milwaukee Brewers. How deep he goes in the game may depend on whether the game is still relevant. If the Dodgers lose on Saturday, then the San Francisco Giants clinch the NL West. However, if the Dodgers win on Saturday, they can force a one-game battle for the division with a win on Sunday and a Giants loss on Sunday. Buehler is coming off of a dominant outing this past Tuesday in which he threw seven scoreless innings in a win over the San Diego Padres. He is 15-4 with a 2.49 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP on the year.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Walker Buehler was a victim of the Coors Field effect against the Colorado Rockies on Wednesday. He pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed seven hits, no walks and five earned runs while recording just two strikeouts. It was his second rough outing of the month as he kicked off September by allowing six earned runs over three innings in a start against the San Francisco Giants. Those two starts have really been the only major blemishes in an otherwise fantastic 2021 campaign for the right-hander. Over 31 starts on the year, Buehler has gone 14-4 with a 2.58 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. His next start will be on Tuesday against the San Diego Padres.
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.
