Plesac allowed five earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two across six innings Wednesday against the Royals. He did not factor into the decision.

Plesac allowed a three-run home run to Salvador Perez in the opening inning before recording an out, which went a long way to sinking his final start of the season. He allowed two additional runs in the following frame, but he settled down to complete at least six innings for the third time in his last four outings. Plesac will close the campaign with a 4.67 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 100 strikeouts across 142.2 innings. Though he's shown consistently strong control, Plesac has allowed 1.4 HR/9 across 313.2 career frames and also has an unremarkable 19.2 percent career strikeout rate.
