Mets @ Rockies
At Coors Field
TV: SNY, ATT SportsNet-RM
10-8, 4.22 ERA, 186 SO
Syndergaard specifically asked to pitch to Tomas Nido or Rene Rivera last time out, but the Mets gave him Wilson Ramos and it didn’t end well. Syndergaard has a 5.20 ERA throwing to Ramos this year, and a 2.22 mark pitching to the other two.
2-6, 6.71 ERA, 61 SO
While he has had heavy base traffic, Hoffman's recent outings have been more competitive. Hoffman is coming off a win over the Padres in his last start. He walked six in 5 1/3 innings but held the damage to four runs.

Royals @ Athletics
At Oakland Coliseum
6-6, 4.30 ERA, 110 SO

13-8, 4.55 ERA, 146 SO
Bailey was strong in his most recent start in Houston on Thursday, holding the Astros to one run over 5 1/3 innings, walking three and striking out four. Bailey has allowed three runs across 11 2/3 innings in September, spanning two starts.

Marlins @ D-backs
At Chase Field
5-13, 4.00 ERA, 140 SO
It would almost be impossible for Alcantara to pitch better than he has in recent weeks. He has gone at least seven innings in six of his past seven starts. One was a complete-game, four-hit shutout against the Royals on Sept. 8. This will be his second career start against Arizona.
11-11, 4.38 ERA, 124 SO
Leake allowed a pair of two-run homers in his last start against the Reds and took the loss when the D-backs were shut down by Luis Castillo. Leake has a 5.51 ERA in eight starts since coming to Arizona at the Trade Deadline.

Angels @ Yankees
At Yankee Stadium
3-3, 4.83 ERA, 48 SO
Peters has scuffled lately, posting a 7.85 ERA over his past four starts. He yielded four runs over just three innings against Cleveland on Sept. 11.
5-8, 4.95 ERA, 101 SO
It will likely be the final regular-season Yankee Stadium appearance for Sabathia, who did not record a decision in his last start, working 3 1/3 innings of two-run ball Sept. 12 at Detroit. Sabathia leads all active hurlers with 3,087 strikeouts.

Blue Jays @ Orioles
At Oriole Park at Camden Yards
1-5, 5.63 ERA, 25 SO
The veteran right-hander has made four starts since returning from the IL in late August, posting a 4.57 ERA with 13 strikeouts and six walks over 21 1/3 innings of work. This is his first time facing the Orioles in 2019.
6-14, 4.99 ERA, 148 SO
Bundy was undone by one hard-luck inning his last time out, not an uncommon occurrence for a pitcher whose underlying metrics look better than his 6-14 record and 4.99 ERA. This will be the 26-year-old right-hander’s penultimate start of the season.

Mariners @ Pirates
At PNC Park
0-0, 27.00 ERA, 0 SO
The Mariners' No. 5 prospect will look for better things after walking 5 and allowing 2 runs in two-thirds of an inning in his MLB debut Thursday vs. the Reds. Dunn is expected to pitch two to three innings before turning things over to lefty Tommy Milone.
4-4, 4.91 ERA, 30 SO
The Pirates won Agrazal's last start despite him only pitching four innings in San Francisco. It was a step forward for Agrazal, who's auditioning for a 2020 job, but the he still owns a 7.08 ERA over his last eight outings dating back to July 26.

Giants @ Red Sox
At Fenway Park
10-12, 3.72 ERA, 133 SO
Samardzija was charged with the loss after giving up four runs over 6 1/3 innings against the Pirates on Thursday. He is 1-2 with a 6.75 ERA in four career appearances (three starts) against the Red Sox.
3-10, 5.44 ERA, 87 SO

Tigers @ Indians
At Progressive Field
TV: SportsTime Ohio, FS-D
3-15, 4.77 ERA, 126 SO
Turnbull gets one more matchup with the team responsible for five of his Major League-leading 15 losses this season. Dizzy Trout, who lost six times to the Yankees in 1942, is the only Tigers pitcher with a half-dozen losses to the same opponent.
3-3, 1.93 ERA, 38 SO
Civale last recorded a start on Sept. 7 after his outing on Friday was washed out in the third inning. He gave up a two-run blast to Jorge Polanco, but all stats were erased when the teams decided to restart the game the following afternoon.

Phillies @ Braves
At SunTrust Park
TV: NBCSP, FSSE, ESPN (out-of-market only)
8-12, 4.20 ERA, 117 SO
Eflin is 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA in his past four starts. He allowed three unearned runs last week against the Braves. Eflin started the season hot, struggled, got demoted to the bullpen and is finishing the season in the rotation.
10-9, 3.50 ERA, 155 SO
Teheran will look to bounce back after allowing the Phillies five runs in four innings on Thursday. The three homers allowed matched his total in his previous seven starts. Still, the veteran has a 2.94 ERA over his past 24 starts.

Padres @ Brewers
At Miller Park
2-5, 4.06 ERA, 81 SO
Since his return from Tommy John, Lamet has been essentially the same pitcher as he was pre-surgery. He's prone to flashes of brilliance with swing-and-miss stuff. But his command has been erratic, and his walk rate is too high.
6-6, 3.84 ERA, 104 SO
Houser is coming off a disappointing start in St. Louis marred by a Paul Goldschmidt grand slam. Before that, he'd allowed three or fewer runs in six straight starts.

White Sox @ Twins
At Target Field
10-12, 4.86 ERA, 106 SO
Dylan Covey was scratched after Tuesday’s loss due to shoulder soreness. So with the White Sox having limited pitching options, Nova will start and throw one inning instead of his normal bullpen session.
14-6, 3.60 ERA, 162 SO
Odorizzi will move up a slot in the rotation after thunderstorms in Cleveland wiped out his last start after only two innings. Though he told manager Rocco Baldelli he was available sooner, Odorizzi will pitch on the standard four days' rest.

Reds @ Cubs
At Wrigley Field
2-11, 5.11 ERA, 120 SO
Mahle is working to position himself for the 2020 rotation but is 0-1 with a 6.43 ERA in three starts for the Reds since returning from Triple-A Louisville. Manager David Bell has remained high on Mahle and believes he has shown growth in 2019.
13-10, 4.59 ERA, 156 SO
Lester picked up a win on Friday despite allowing seven runs (four earned) on 11 hits in five innings vs. Pirates. The lefty has given up 15 runs (12 earned) in 10 1/3 innings in his past two starts. He is 8-4 with a 4.37 ERA in 15 home starts this year.

Rangers @ Astros
At Minute Maid Park
TV: FSSW, ATT SportsNet-SW
4-0, 4.34 ERA, 30 SO

17-5, 2.62 ERA, 292 SO
Cole is 13-0 with a 1.85 ERA and 192 strikeouts in his past 19 starts. He's set a club record for consecutive wins by a pitcher and is eight strikeouts shy of becoming the third Astros pitcher to reach 300, and the first since Mike Scott (306 in 1986).

Nationals @ Cardinals
At Busch Stadium
10-7, 2.81 ERA, 233 SO
Each start for Scherzer leading up to the NL Wild Card Game could serve as a tune-up as he starts to work his way back to form after recovering from back and shoulder injuries. He was not sharp in his last start -- three runs allowed in five innings against Atlanta.
13-9, 3.83 ERA, 144 SO
Wainwright has a 2.61 ERA in his last seven starts and has allowed one run over his last three outings, including a scoreless six-inning effort against the Brewers on Friday. In 16 career appearances (14 starts) vs. the Nats, Wainwright is 9-4 with a 3.34 ERA.
