Buehrle is not expected to be included on the Blue Jays’ postseason roster.
If Buehrle pitches two innings Sunday it would bring his season total to 200 for a Major League-leading 15 straight seasons. San Diego Padres pitcher James Shields is second in 200-inning seasons with nine.
Buehrle has a 15–7 record and 3.82 ERA in 31 starts this season. He also threw four complete games, his highest total since 2004.
The Blue Jays play the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field on Sunday.
Toronto will open its playoff schedule on Oct. 8 against the winner of the American League wild card game.
