Mark Buehrle’s wife spills the beans on her husband winning the Gold Glove

The Gold Glove award announcements don’t come out until tomorrow, but the Chicago Tribune reports that Mark Buehrle’s wife Jamie posted this today on her Facebook page today:

“So proud of my husband. He is now a TWO time gold glove winner!!!”

I would have been able to report this news myself if it wasn’t for the fact that Jamie Buehrle has ignored my constant friend requests.

Maybe I should change my picture.  Do you think I should chance my picture?

The Diamondbacks announced that the club optioned starter Matt Koch to Triple-A Reno after Tuesday night’s game. According to Nick Piecoro of Azcentral Sports, Shelby Miller will likely be activated from the 60-day disabled list to start against the Marlins on Monday.

Miller, 27, has been out since late April of 2017 after undergoing and rehabilitating from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander has had a rough time since coming to the Diamondbacks in a trade with the Braves, starting 24 games since the beginning of the 2016 season with a 5.78 ERA and a 90/54 K/BB ratio in 123 innings.

That trade, consummated on December 9, 2015, is certainly one the D-Backs would like to take back. They received Miller and Gabe Speier from the Braves and gave up Ender Inciarte, Dansby Swanson, and Aaron Blair.

Koch, 27, made 12 starts and one relief appearance this season, compiling a 4.40 ERA with a 38/17 K/BB ratio in 71 2/3 innings.
