  • Cease (4-2) was tagged with the loss Tuesday after he tossed four innings, allowing seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four against the Red Sox. Cease surrendered two home runs in the first inning, giving the Red Sox an early 4-0 lead. He later gave up another three runs and his four innings on the mound matched his shortest outing of the season. After posting a 2.38 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over 34 innings his first six starts of the campaign, Cease has struggled recently, giving up 13 runs over 13.2 frames in his last three outings. His season-long numbers now stand at 4.24 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with an incredible 13.69 K/9 over 46.2 innings in nine starts.

  • Cease (4-1) picked up the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, allowing seven hits and two walks over 5.2 scoreless innings. He struck out nine. The right-hander fired 94 pitches (61 strikes) in falling just short of his third quality start of the season, but it was still another dominant outing for Cease. He's struck out at least eight batters in each of his last five starts, posting a 2.93 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and stunning 48:10 K:BB through 27.2 innings over that stretch.

  • Cease did not factor in the decision against the Yankees on Thursday, hurling four innings during which he gave up six runs on six hits and two walks while striking out 11. Cease racked up an impressive 20 swinging strikes among his 90 pitches and tied his season high with 11 punchouts, but he also surrendered his most runs of the campaign thus far. He was victimized by a pair of Giancarlo Stanton homers in the contest that accounted for four of the six runs against him. The right-hander had been excellent at keeping the ball in the park prior to Thursday, allowing just one homer over his first six starts. Despite the tough outing, Cease has been a solid fantasy asset this season, tying for the league lead with 58 strikeouts while posting a 3.55 ERA over 38 innings. HIs next start is scheduled to come in Kansas City early next week.

  • Cease allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out eight across five innings Saturday against Boston. He did not factor into the decision. Cease struggled to work efficiently as he needed 101 pitches to record 15 outs. However, he otherwise continued to showcase strong stuff, highlighted by 16 swinging strikes. Cease has now racked up at least eight strikeouts in all but one of his six starts this season and has maintained a 2.38 ERA with a 1.00 WHIP and a 47:13 K:BB across 34 innings.

  • Cease (3-1) earned the win Tuesday after he pitched seven scoreless innings, giving up just one hit while striking out 11 batters against the Angels. Cease was almost perfect Monday, posting a season-high 11 strikeouts while allowing just one hit, a double by Taylor Ward in the fourth inning. It was his second straight quality start, and he now sports a 2.48 ERA and 0.93 WHIP with a very impressive 12.1 K/9. With Lance Lynn (knee) on the shelf, Cease has stepped up as a very effective No. 2 option in the rotation behind Lucas Giolito early this season.
