Mark Buehrle Could Be A Hot Name At The Trade Deadline

Scouts are already indicating the Blue Jays will be a major team to pay attention to at the trading deadline if they start fading, and more specifically that LHP Marc Buehrle might be a top target for contending teams.

There’s also Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion to consider, but Buehrle, given his ability to pitch in either league at a high level and to work quickly and effectively, will be valued.

Buehrle is making $18 million this year, owed $19 million next year, and can then become a free agent after the 2015 season. That’s quite a bit of money for a mid-rotation starter, but the 35-year-old southpaw has posted an ace-like 2.25 ERA in 40 innings (six starts) so far this season.
