Duplantier (0-2) lost Tuesday's start against Oakland, allowing four runs on two hits and three walks with four strikeouts in a 5-2 defeat.

Making his third start of 2021, Duplantier breezed through the first three innings before allowing the first four batters of the fourth to reach base, at which point he was removed. Reliever Alex Young allowed all three inherited runners to score, leading to an unpleasant line for Duplantier despite his excellence through three frames. He's tentatively slated to pitch Sunday against the Angels but won't stick in the rotation once more proven hurlers return from the IL unless his performance drastically improves.
