Tuesday November 22nd, 2011

Members of the Washington Nationals front office will travel to Mark Buehrle’s home in St. Louis today to meet with the left-hander and his agents, according to Adam Kilgore of the Washington Post.

The Nationals are one of many teams who are believed to be vying for the veteran starter’s services in 2012. Among the members believed to be traveling to St. Louis to meet with Buehrle is Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo, according to Kilgore.

Last season, the 32-year-old posted a 13-9 record for the Chicago White Sox with a 3.59 ERA in 205.1 innings pitched. Over the course of his 12-year-career with Chicago, he has averaged a 15-11 record with a 3.83 ERA in an average 233 innings of work.
