Pirates @ Reds
At Great American Ball Park
LHP
2-1, 5.87 ERA, 26 SO
The Pirates will abandon the opener in front of Brault in Wednesday's series finale. The lefty pitched better his last time out, holding the Dodgers to two runs on three hits in 5 2/3 innings, but he'll need to prove himself to stick in the rotation.
RHP
2-3, 4.97 ERA, 55 SO
DeSclafani has struggled in each of his past three starts as none has gone past four innings. He has lacked the location of his curveball, perhaps a reason he has tied a career high with three homers allowed in each of his past two starts.

Padres @ Yankees
At Yankee Stadium
RHP
4-3, 2.40 ERA, 62 SO
Paddack was a late scratch from his scheduled start on Sunday in Toronto with a stiff neck, but has been one of the game's best starters in 2019. Paddack has walked one or fewer batters in eight of his nine starts this season.
LHP
3-2, 2.81 ERA, 59 SO
Paxton returns from the injured list, making his first start since May 3 due to left knee inflammation. Paxton still feels discomfort, but believes it is something he can pitch through. The Yankees have won his last four starts.

Angels @ Athletics
At Oakland Coliseum
RHP
2-1, 3.06 ERA, 34 SO
Canning has lived up to his billing as the organization's top pitching prospect. He recorded his first Major League victory on May 6 at Detroit in his second career start. He displayed plenty of polish, walking one and striking out seven in 5 1/3 innings. In Canning's last two outings, he has allowed one earned run in 12 innings, while walking three and striking out 10.
RHP
1-1, 3.05 ERA, 19 SO
Mengden has had trouble with his command with 11 walks over 16 1/3 innings, but he's been able to pitch out of jams and has a 3.31 ERA over three starts since getting the callup from Triple-A Las Vegas on May 12.

Rangers @ Mariners
At T-Mobile Park
RHP
1-1, 5.24 ERA, 36 SO
Leclerc will be used as an opener for the second time this season and pitch ahead of left-hander Drew Smyly. Leclerc was pulled from his last outing on Monday with cramps in both his calves, but he credited that to dehydration.
LHP
2-2, 6.99 ERA, 23 SO
LeBlanc has had a rough time in Seattle, compiling a 9.49 ERA in three starts this season at T-Mobile Park. He has yet to face the Rangers in 2019, but is 2-1 with a 4.13 ERA against them in five career games, four of them starts.

Indians @ Red Sox
At Fenway Park
RHP
4-2, 3.67 ERA, 85 SO
Bieber will look to go deeper into Wednesday's start after racking up 111 pitches in five frames last time out. But he was able to hold the Rays to one run on four hits, and he has fanned 25 batters over his past two outings.
RHP
1-1, 4.50 ERA, 13 SO
The Minor League journeyman has been solid since being called up by the Red Sox. In his last start, Weber held the Jays to three hits and a run over six innings while earning the win in Toronto. Weber has made nine career starts, gong 2-5 with a 4.41 ERA.

Cardinals @ Phillies
At Citizens Bank Park
LHP
0-1, 7.36 ERA, 5 SO
Cabrera is set to make his MLB debut while taking Michael Wacha's rotation spot. Cabrera's Triple-A numbers, including a 6.35 ERA, aren't great, but his last two starts were better. His ability to maintain high-90s velocity also intrigues the Cards.
RHP
6-0, 4.18 ERA, 74 SO
Nola has a 2.76 ERA in his last six starts -- a far cry from his 6.84 ERA through his first five outings. His curveball has been much sharper of late, helping him rack up 18 strikeouts over 11 1/3 innings in his last two starts.

Tigers @ Orioles
At Oriole Park at Camden Yards
LHP
0-2, 7.58 ERA, 15 SO
Carpenter will start on short rest after his most encouraging outing of the season. He needed just 56 pitches to toss five strong innings against the Mets last Saturday at Citi Field, allowing two hits – both to Wilson Ramos – and striking out five.
LHP
5-4, 2.80 ERA, 45 SO
Means has been a bright spot in an otherwise difficult season to this point for Orioles starters, and continued to show promise in his last start, holding the Rockies to three runs over five innings at Coors Field to take a 2.96 ERA into a home start against the Tigers.

Blue Jays @ Rays
At Tropicana Field
RHP
1-4, 4.53 ERA, 65 SO
Thornton is tabbed for the series finale against Tampa Bay. The 25-year-old right-hander is coming off back-to-back quality starts in his two most recent outings against the White Sox and Padres, striking out a career-high 10 hitters in his last start on Friday.
LHP
3-4, 3.06 ERA, 83 SO
Snell has been spectacular over his past four starts, posting a 1.48 ERA over 24 1/3 innings. Over that stretch, the lefty has struck out 37 and walked six.

RHP
1-6, 4.47 ERA, 48 SO

RHP
2-4, 5.56 ERA, 57 SO
Gausman hasn't allowed a homer while working six innings and allowing three earned runs or less in each of his past three starts. The veteran hurler has essentially ditched his slider. He's relied almost exclusively on his four-seamer and splitter.

Ray got the win in his last start against the Giants, when he allowed two runs over 5 1/3 innings. Over his last four starts, he is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA. He started once at Coors Field this year on May 3 and got the win.
RHP
1-1, 7.20 ERA, 15 SO
The last start was forgettable. Hoffman toughed out five innings, allowing five runs on seven hits, but his team pulled out a win. Hoffman simply missed location with all pitches, and will need to be better.

Mets @ Dodgers
At Dodger Stadium
RHP
3-4, 4.90 ERA, 77 SO
What’s wrong with Syndergaard? The Mets pitcher referenced mental issues after allowing six runs in 5 1/3 innings last time out; manager Mickey Callaway chalked the struggles up to his mechanics. His ERA is 5.02 in his last nine starts.
RHP
5-1, 4.03 ERA, 58 SO
Even with a tough-luck outing last weekend in Cincinnati, Buehler has been great in his past three turns, allowing just two earned runs over 19 innings with 20 strikeouts to two walks.
