MLB Injury News:
Stop me when you've heard this before. A member of the Toronto Blue Jays has sustained an injury.
When it comes to the Blue Jays, even the most durable players won't go unscathed. Mark Buehrle would certainly fall into that category, but the left-hander was forced to exit last night's start early after taking a line drive off his right calf. It was Buehrle's last start of the season regardless, but the extent of his injury wasn't clear as of last night, according to Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com.
At this point, Chisholm notes that the injury doesn't appear to be anything serious, and Buehrle might have gone on to make his next start if he had one lined up. Joking with reporters after the game, the southpaw said that he would have plenty of time to recover prior to his next regular-season appearance.
"I've got six months to recover, so it doesn't really
matter," Buehrle joked after Toronto's 3-2 loss. "It got me in the
calf, told them to at least let me finish off the inning but [manager John
Gibbons] said there's no reason to. They got me out of there. I'm sure it will
tighten up and feel a little sore."
Buehrle suffered the injury when he was struck on the right leg by Baltimore Orioles outfielder Steve Pearce. He recorded the out on the play, but he was then removed from the game. It ended a lackluster night for the veteran, as he exited having allowed three runs on eight hits with one strikeout over 3 1/3 innings.
While Buehrle was able to finish the season strong, he struggled early on. These led to a season ERA and WHIP of 4.15 and 1.345.

But his most recent idea, that the Phillies should acquire Toronto outfielder Jose Bautista, is not my cup of...
