8-7, 4.54 ERA, 87 SO
Arrieta is trying to pitch the rest of the season with a bone spur in his right elbow. He allowed one run in five innings Sunday against the Nationals, but he lost velocity after the third inning and essentially no longer throws his cutter.
RHP
5-6, 5.16 ERA, 80 SO
Lyles is trying to right the ship after an ugly seven-start stretch during which he's posted a 10.13 ERA while opponents put together a 1.051 OPS. He gave up seven runs on four hits and four walks while recording only two outs Saturday vs. the Cubs.

Velasquez allowed four home runs in 4 2/3 innings Tuesday against the Dodgers. He threw the ball well early, but the four homers came on four fastballs down the middle of the plate. His command continues to cost him.

6-8, 4.31 ERA, 90 SO
Musgrove is coming off an unusual outing in which he worked only 4 2/3 innings on 104 pitches as the Cardinals pestered him with foul balls. He's put together a 3.89 ERA with 39 strikeouts and seven walks in eight starts since the beginning of June.
