If you have both Buehler and Maeda you got a Win and a Save and all 9 innings with a 9.00 ERA tonight.

Dominated the D'backs over eight innings: two hits, one over the fence, no walks, 11 strikeouts. Eighteen called strikes, 18 swinging strikes, 18 foul balls.

In his last four starts, which counts a clinker against the Mets, he has a 2.88 ERA and 0.995 WHIP, striking out 30 and walking two in 25 innings.

I have him so I hope he can get command of his curveball.

From Rotowire on 3/13:

Buehler has been built up very slowly and has yet to make a Cactus League appearance, but the team said it was just slow-playing him. What originally appeared to be general workload management now seems to have been at least a minor issue such as dead arm. It's good news that Buehler is fine now, but it's discouraging that he's already battled some sort of problem. With Clayton Kershaw (shoulder) on a similar delayed timeline, Ross Stripling is looking increasingly likely to crack the Opening Day rotation. If Buehler and Kershaw are ready but limited initially, Stripling could piggyback with one or both.

We are currently showing spring training stats to subscribers (that would be you, Tim) and Buehler indeed made all of one start. I can't remember why exactly, but there was some sort of issue.

His Spring Training was non-existent. I don't think he got two innings in? The velocity has been good but that 12-6 breaking ball isn't....at least not yet.

Six starts into the season he's still scuffling ... Yeah, he got a win this week, but 3 ER in 5+ innings against this year's Giants isn't anything to celebrate.  In SF no less.  Any reasons for the collapse in his K rate?

Just traded a $6 Hampson for a $5 Buehler.  Hesitated because I was wondering what he knew that I didn’t. Still wondering . . .

Is Buehler hurt? Or does he just stink suddenly? I know they handled him with kid gloves this spring but he has been straight up awful thus far.

Walker Buehler (P) LA - Mar. 14

Manager Dave Roberts said that Buehler will make his Cactus League debut Monday against the Rangers or Tuesday against the against the Indians, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Per Plunkett, Roberts noted that Buehler "didn't feel right" due to an unspecified issue when he reported to spring training, prompting the Dodgers to take a "slow-play" approach with the prized young hurler. Even if Buehler had felt 100 percent when camp began, the Dodgers likely would have looked to limit his spring workload anyway after his innings count jumped to 167 innings between the minors and majors (including the postseason) in 2018.
