At Yankee Stadium
RHP
5-4, 4.26 ERA, 75 SO

RHP
0-0, 0.00 ERA, 4 SO

Mariners @ Pirates
At PNC Park
LHP
16-11, 4.14 ERA, 139 SO
Gonzales has already achieved career highs with 15 wins and 182 innings and will look to continue building on those totals in his first time facing the Pirates. He allowed five hits and two runs in seven innings in his last start vs. the Reds.
RHP
1-5, 7.74 ERA, 58 SO
Keller will try to rebound after allowing five runs on nine hits in five innings in San Francisco last time out. Keller's 8.29 ERA is discouraging, but his 3.61 FIP and peripheral numbers suggest better days are ahead for Pittsburgh's top prospect.

At Oriole Park at Camden Yards
RHP
0-2, 5.94 ERA, 12 SO
Tepera will make his first career big league start to kick off the midweek series in Baltimore.

Tepra owns a 5.17 ERA in 17 appearances, while Thornton is 5.04 in 29.
RHP
0-0, 4.91 ERA, 9 SO

Phillies @ Braves
At SunTrust Park
RHP
7-7, 4.89 ERA, 121 SO
Velasquez is 4-4 with a 5.48 ERA in 14 starts since he rejoined the Phillies' rotation in June. He has not pitched more than 5 1/3 innings in any of his past six starts as the Phillies are quick to pull him if they sense any signs of trouble.
LHP
8-6, 3.63 ERA, 83 SO
Keuchel has posted a 0.97 ERA over his past six starts. Opponents have produced a .331 on-base percentage during this span, but he has consistently escaped trouble with a 69.7 percent ground-ball rate.

Padres @ Brewers
At Miller Park
RHP
9-7, 3.33 ERA, 153 SO
Paddack is authoring a strong finish to his breakout rookie season. He has allowed one run over his past three starts, while striking out 23. But the Padres have monitored his workload closely this year, and this outing could be his last start.
RHP
11-3, 3.69 ERA, 140 SO
The All-Star right-hander will be on a limited pitch count in his first start since he strained his left oblique pitching at Arizona on July 21. Veteran left-hander Gio Gonzalez will follow.

White Sox @ Twins
At Target Field
LHP
2-5, 6.98 ERA, 42 SO
With Lucas Giolito shut down for the season due to a mild lat strain, Ross Detwiler steps back into the rotation. Detwiler has not pitched since Sept. 2 in Cleveland due to hip soreness termed by Rick Renteria as “manageable.”
LHP
10-7, 4.92 ERA, 129 SO
After dominating two outings ago, Perez felt comfortable on Wednesday in his second start since moving to the first-base side of the rubber, but he was charged with five runs in five frames vs. the Nationals after some bad luck on balls in play.

Nationals @ Cardinals
At Busch Stadium
LHP
13-7, 3.10 ERA, 224 SO
Two of his rotation mates may have a better case, but don’t discount Corbin as a Cy Young Award candidate. He is in the top five in the NL in innings, strikeouts and Wins Above Replacement.

Mikolas was tagged for three runs in the Cardinals' win over the Rockies on Thursday, including two solo home runs. He walked one and struck out five in five innings. Over his last seven games, Mikolas is 2-1 with a 5.45 ERA.

Reds @ Cubs
At Wrigley Field
RHP
11-7, 2.80 ERA, 199 SO
Gray took a no-hitter into the 7th inning his last time out in Seattle, but he lost it on a three-run homer that led to a 5-2 loss. He’s looking to break Nolan Ryan’s record by going for his 32nd straight start with 6 hits or fewer.
RHP
6-7, 4.02 ERA, 217 SO
Darvish struck out a season-high 14 batters in six shutout innings against the Padres on Thursday. In 11 second-half starts, the righty has a 2.44 ERA with 93 strikeouts vs. six walks in 66 1/3 innings. He has a 5.14 ERA at home in '19.

Mets @ Rockies
At Coors Field
RHP
9-13, 3.21 ERA, 149 SO
In his last start, Stroman recorded an out in the seventh inning for the first time since joining the Mets. The team has implored him to generate more outs early in counts, which he did with success in that start against the D-backs.
RHP
2-3, 5.40 ERA, 22 SO
Melville succeeded in his early outings by staying low in the strike zone. What happens when he's up? Well, four home runs in three innings against the Cardinals in his last outing serve as a cautionary tale.

Marlins @ D-backs
At Chase Field
LHP
9-10, 4.24 ERA, 164 SO

LHP
7-4, 3.27 ERA, 65 SO
Young was roughed up by the Mets in his last start, allowing six runs (one earned) over 2 2/3 innings. It came following the best start of his career, when he struck out 12 Reds in eight scoreless innings.

1-2, 5.14 ERA, 49 SO
