      Indians' Adam Plutko: Takes loss despite strong outing

      Adam Plutko (3-2) allowed one earned run on two hits and a walk while striking out four across seven innings to take the loss Saturday against the Royals.Plutko effectively limited the Royals, though he was punished for his one mistake when he allowed a solo home run to Hunter Dozier in the first inning. Otherwise, only two other hitters reached scoring position across his remaining six innings of work. The strong effort was needed for Plutko, as he had allowed 10 earned runs across 10 innings in his last two starts. He now owns a 4.81 ERA but has a useful 1.09 WHIP as he has handed out only six free passes across 48.2 innings. He'll look to string together quality performances in his next start, currently scheduled for Thursday in Kansas City.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Re-entering rotation Monday

      Adam Plutko is scheduled to start Monday's game against the Tigers.Plutko will pick up his first start since June 28 after Cleveland's light schedule allowed the team to get by with a shortened rotation over the last two and a half weeks. Though he remained on the active roster throughout that stretch, Plutko didn't make any appearances in relief. He presumably kept his arm conditioned for starting duty during the idle period by pitching in a simulated game or two, so Plutko shouldn't face any notable workload restrictions in his return to the mound.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Working in relief through break

      Adam Plutko isn't listed among the Cleveland Indians' projected starters for their three-game series with the Royals.Plutko's last start came June 24 in against Kansas City, when he covered four innings of one-run ball before being pulled from the outing after a rain delay. He mopped up in long relief in his subsequent appearance last Friday in Baltimore, giving up five runs on nine hits and one walk in 4.2 innings. The poor showing didn't do Plutko any favors in re-entering the pitching schedule during the Indians' five-game week, so manager Terry Francona looks prepared to stick with a four-man rotation thanks to off days Monday and the upcoming Friday. The Indians will next require a fifth starter July 16 against the Tigers.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Inefficient in no-decision

      Adam Plutko gave up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and no walks while striking out five through 4.1 innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Wednesday.Plutko limited the Rangers to one run until the fourth inning, when he quickly allowed two hits and a run before two errors allowed another run to score. The right-hander was removed after 89 pitches after surrendering another extra-base hit, leaving him unable to complete the fifth inning. Plutko had delivered quality starts in his previous two outings, but a 6.68 FIP suggested there was regression coming. Plutko would be lined up to face the Royals on Monday if he stays in the rotation.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Locks up third victory

      Adam Plutko (3-1) gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and a walk while striking out six over six innings Friday in a win over the Tigers.Plutko gave up both of his earned runs in the bottom of the second inning on a pair of solo homers, and the Tigers would push across another run in the third on a sacrifice fly. The 27-year-old has now put together quality starts in back-to-back outings, and he'll likely remain in the starting rotation moving forward with Carlos Carrasco out for the foreseeable future.

      Indians' Adam Plutko: Bounces back with strong start

      Adam Plutko (2-1) allowed two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and no walks across six innings to earn a victory against the Yankees on Saturday.The 27-year-old yielded just one run on one hit in his 2019 MLB debut, but he gave up seven runs on 12 hits in his next start. After that rough outing, Plutko went back to Triple-A until Saturday. His overall numbers aren't going to be great because it's a small sample size with one horrendous outing, but Plutko has more than held his own in two of his three big-league starts in 2019. He is 2-1 with a 5.19 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 11 strikeouts in 17.1 innings this season. Carlos Carrasco landed on the injured list with an undisclosed blood condition Wednesday, and Plutko probably pitched well enough in this outing to earn another start in his place.
