Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle is reportedly considering retiring at the end of the 2015 season.
Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old Buehrle recently picked up his 200th career victory and is continuing to pitch effectively in his 16th MLB season, with a 2-0 record and a 3.75 ERA through his first two outings this year.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle will pitch an exhibition game in Montreal and then a game against the Baltimore Orioles so he does not have to face the New York Yankees.
Fantasy Tip: This is a good development and raises Buehrle's fantasy value a bit. Buehrle is a solid first-half starter but always has trouble facing the Yankees. Buehrle is a decent AL-only bet in the middle to later rounds of your draft.

The Toronto Blue Jays have not made it official, but it's hard to believe they will use SP Mark Buehrle as the opening day starter, or any time during the first road series against the New York Yankees. Buehrle owns a 1-14 lifetime mark against the Yankees with an ERA of 6.21 and a WHIP of 1.571 in 21 career starts. And since joining the Jays, he has a 6.82 ERA with a 1.545 WHIP against the Bronx Bombers.
Fantasy Tip: It is likely Buehrle will be held out of the Yankees series, pitching in the second road series of the season in Baltimore, a team he has fared a little better against in his career. FantasyScore owners need to file away his awful, awful history against the Yankees and avoid him at all costs.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle allowed six runs and nine hits over three innings Friday, July 25, against the New York Yankees, his shortest outing since June 6, 2010, when he was a member of the Chicago White Sox. He hasn't beaten the Yankees since 2004, and the Blue Jays have dropped 17 straight road games against the Yankees, a skid which started September 2012. It is the longest losing streak at one opponent since the Tampa Bay Rays lost 18 in a row on the road against the Cleveland Indians from September 2005 to July 2010.
Fantasy Tip: Buehrle started the season 10-1, and was a huge sell-high fantasy candidate. He is now 0-6 with a 4.83 ERA over his past nine starts since his last victory June 1.

Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle has allowed seven home runs in his last six starts. He only allowed two home runs through his first 12 starts.
Fantasy Tip: Buehrle pitched way over his head to start the season and has now lost five of his last six starts. He is slowly regressing back to the low-end mixed league starter he has been throughout the majority of his career.
