Vargas was 6-5 with a 4.01 ERA with the Mets before they traded him to the Phillies in late July. He is 0-3 with a 5.48 ERA in nine starts with Philadelphia, failing to pitch more than four innings in three of his past four starts.
RHP
8-6, 3.64 ERA, 79 SO
This will be Plesac's first start since he tossed his first career shutout on Sept. 10 against the Angels. The Indians decided to skip the rookie's last turn in the rotation to help manage his workload in the final few weeks of the season.

7-7, 4.89 ERA, 121 SO
Velasquez allowed two runs in the first inning Tuesday against the Braves, but he settled and pitched four more scoreless innings in a win. Velasquez has potential, but for the moment, he is a five-inning starter with stuff. The Phillies will take it.
RHP
7-4, 4.34 ERA, 72 SO
Plutko helped the Indians stay in the AL Wild Card hunt after the team lost its final series against the Twins last weekend. On Tuesday, the righty gave up two runs on four hits in six innings against the Tigers in a victory.
