A less-than-arduous winter routine has helped make Mark Buehrle one of baseball's most durable and successful pitchers, which is why the Miami Marlins gave him a $58 million, four-year contract this offseason.
He threw only once before arriving for spring training, to the astonishment of his new teammates. But during the season, Buehrle throws more than anyone else.
Since his first full season in 2001, the left-hander leads the majors in games started and innings pitched. He has topped 200 innings each of the past 11 seasons, and that's his goal this year.
The four-time All-Star ranks fourth in victories since 2001 with 157, all with the Chicago White Sox. He went 13-9 with a 3.59 ERA last season.
