Reds @ Cubs
At Wrigley Field
TV: NBCSCH, FS-O, MLBN (out-of-market only)
2-2, 4.60 ERA, 50 SO
DeSclafani is 2-1 with a 3.19 ERA in five career starts at Wrigley Field. In his last start vs. the Dodgers, last Friday's 6-0 loss, he was hit hard with three homers allowed. He did not have a good feel for any of his pitches.
4-4, 3.21 ERA, 45 SO
Hendricks faced the Reds on May 14, allowing one run over eight innings, while striking out seven and walking just one. The righty has gone 4-1 with a 2.53 ERA and 35 strikeouts to six walks in his last six outings (42 2/3 innings).

Dodgers @ Pirates
At PNC Park
TV: ATT SportsNet-PIT, SportsNet LA, SNLA Spanish
4-1, 3.83 ERA, 46 SO
Buehler was sharp his last time out, a six-inning effort during which he struck out seven and didn't walk a batter but took his first loss of the season when the Dodgers were shut out behind him. He has never faced the Pirates.

Marlins @ Nationals
At Nationals Park
3-5, 5.06 ERA, 49 SO
Lopez has been more on the attack with his two-seam fastball (or sinker), and is getting more ground balls -- 53 percent rate, up from 50 percent last year. He's averaging 9.19 K/9 and 2.44 BB/9, both improved from 2018 (7.06 K/9, 2.76 BB/9).
0-0, 6.00 ERA, 3 SO
McGowin gets a spot start in place of the injured Jeremy Hellickson. McGowin has pitched in six big league games in his brief MLB career, including one start, and has given up eight runs (seven earned) in 10 2/3 innings.

Padres @ Blue Jays
At Rogers Centre
3-3, 4.28 ERA, 46 SO
Lucchesi experienced some rough batted ball luck early in the season, and he owns a 3.36 FIP that is almost a full run lower than his ERA. Things have begun to turn lately, however, as Lucchesi owns a 2.95 ERA in May.
1-4, 4.41 ERA, 50 SO
Thornton will head to the mound to open a three-game Interleague set against the Padres, looking for his second win of the season. The rookie right-hander is coming off one of his best starts of the year, allowing one run on three hits with four strikeouts over six innings against the White Sox on Sunday.

Rays @ Indians
At Progressive Field
TV: Fox Sports Sun, SportsTime Ohio
3-4, 3.31 ERA, 71 SO
After giving up seven earned runs against Kansas City on May 1, Snell has allowed just three runs over his past three outings, lowering his season ERA from 4.31 to 3.31 during that span.
3-2, 3.22 ERA, 69 SO
It'll be hard for Bieber to top his performance from last Sunday. The 23-year-old became the fourth-youngest pitcher since at least 1908 to record 15 strikeouts without a walk in a complete-game shutout against the Orioles.

Tigers @ Mets
At Citi Field
0-2, 10.80 ERA, 7 SO
Soto’s fourth Major League start will be his first one on regular rest, which should allow the 24-year-old some time to polish his secondary pitches to get hitters off his mid-90s fastball. Opponents are hitting .393 off his power sinker.
3-4, 4.50 ERA, 63 SO
The Mets can only hope that Syndergaard, whose early-season struggles were somewhat of a mystery to them, is finding his groove. Syndergaard has delivered quality starts in three of his last four outings, with a 2.40 ERA over that stretch.

White Sox @ Twins
At Target Field
3-4, 5.14 ERA, 54 SO
Lopez will open the series against the Twins on Friday at Target Field looking to continue his recent string of strong outings. In his past seven starts, he's pitched to a 2.95 ERA, allowing 14 earned runs over 42 2/3 innings.
6-2, 3.39 ERA, 60 SO
Berríos was spotted a 15-0 lead by the fifth inning of last Saturday's rout of the Mariners, but he couldn't complete the five innings required for a win after allowing four runs and seeing his pitch count soar to 105 due to numerous foul balls.

Red Sox @ Astros
At Minute Maid Park
TV: NESN, ATT SportsNet-SW, MLBN (out-of-market only)
1-5, 4.31 ERA, 83 SO
Sale has owned the month of May with 51 strikeouts over just 26 1/3 innings. He'll look to pound the zone a bit more this time out, though, after walking an uncharacteristic five batters against these same Astros in his last start.
4-2, 3.51 ERA, 37 SO
The lefty has five quality starts in 10 outings and has thrown exactly six innings in five of his last seven starts. He's allowed a career-best 1.17 WHIP this year, and the Astros are 7-3 in games in which he starts.

Phillies @ Brewers
At Miller Park
2-2, 3.23 ERA, 38 SO
After a stellar first four starts of 2019, Eickhoff has allowed nine runs over his last two starts. The right-hander has a 6.55 ERA in four career starts against the Brewers.
2-0, 2.66 ERA, 25 SO
Anderson will be well-rested in his second start off the 10-day injured list after throwing 76 pitches in Atlanta in his return to action last weekend. He's allowed two earned runs in 13 2/3 innings since joining Milwaukee's rotation.

Yankees @ Royals
At Kauffman Stadium
0-2, 12.41 ERA, 13 SO
Green will make his second appearance as an "opener" this year. His last time opening a game, on Sunday, he allowed two homers to the Rays. Green has had a down year thus far, averaging more than an earned run allowed per inning of work.
3-5, 5.69 ERA, 47 SO
Junis is coming off his longest outing of the season Saturday against the Angels, as he went seven innings, giving up five runs and six hits while striking out six.

Braves @ Cardinals
At Busch Stadium
TV: FSSE, FS-M, MLBN (out-of-market only)
0-3, 6.91 ERA, 17 SO
This will be only the second start on the road this season for Foltynewicz, who has performed nearly as well away from SunTrust Park as he has in it. He's 19-23 with a 4.46 ERA on the road in his career, compared to 17-15, 4.22 ERA at home.
4-4, 4.88 ERA, 37 SO
Mikolas was chased in the second inning after allowing seven runs his last time out. However, he has been much more effective at home this year, posting a 3.00 ERA in five starts at Busch Stadium.

Orioles @ Rockies
At Coors Field
TV: MASN 2, ATT SportsNet-RM
5-4, 2.68 ERA, 34 SO
Has there been a bigger surprise in baseball than John Means? A non-prospect heading into this season, the rookie southpaw has been a revelation for the pitching-starved Orioles. Means is 5-4 with a 2.68 ERA overall.

Rangers @ Angels
At Angel Stadium
0-3, 6.51 ERA, 31 SO
Smyly is 0-1 with a 4.97 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in two starts and one relief appearance since returning from the injured list on May 5. He has held opponents to a .191 batting average, but he walked 10 against 12 strikeouts in 12 2/3 innings.
2-1, 3.80 ERA, 24 SO
Canning is coming off the best start of his career, throwing seven scoreless innings against the Royals. He scattered just three hits and a walk while striking out five.

Mariners @ Athletics
At Oakland Coliseum
2-1, 7.36 ERA, 14 SO
LeBlanc lasted just 2 1/3 innings while allowing 7 hits and 7 runs vs. the Twins after a five-week layoff with a strained right oblique. He'll look to get on track against the A's, who he held scoreless for 11 innings in two starts last year.
1-1, 3.65 ERA, 9 SO
Mengden makes his third start of 2019 looking to carry the momentum from an impressive performance of one run allowed over seven innings at Detroit last week. The right-hander is 0-2 with a 5.89 ERA in four career games (three starts) against Seattle.

D-backs @ Giants
At Oracle Park
TV: NBC Bay Area, FS-A
3-1, 3.25 ERA, 67 SO
Ray will make his second straight start vs. the Giants. He threw 87 pitches in four innings Sunday at home, allowing four walks, three hits and two runs with six strikeouts. His pitch count and innings were season lows. Walks (five per nine innings) have been a bugaboo.
1-4, 5.66 ERA, 35 SO
Pomeranz gave up two runs over 4 2/3 innings against the D-backs on Sunday in his first start since returning from the injured list. He is 0-3 with a 7.76 ERA in nine career appearances against Arizona.
