Roark (2-3) took the loss Tuesday against the Yankees after giving up six runs on seven hits with four strikeouts and zero walks over 4.1 innings.
The veteran right-hander has faced the Yankees in his past three outings, and he took his second loss during that stretch Tuesday. Roark has a 7.01 ERA, 1.74 WHIP and 39:21 K:BB through 43.2 innings and lines up for his final start of the regular season in Sunday's finale versus the Orioles.
Roark (2-2) allowed six earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Yankees.
Roark was buried by the long ball, as he allowed four home runs in the four innings he pitched. He's now allowed multiple homers in five of his nine starts this season. That's resulted in a 6.41 ERA and an unsightly 3.2 HR/9 across 39.1 frames. He'll have to square off against the Yankees once again in his next outing, currently projected to come Monday.
Roark (2-1) pitched four innings on Wednesday, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out three in the Blue Jays' 7-2 loss to the Yankees. He also walked three batters.

He has a 5.60 ERA and 28 strikeouts through seven starts this campaign.

The right-hander headed into the fifth inning with a 5-2 lead but he ran out of gas, getting the hook after 79 pitches (49 strikes) and falling short of qualifying for his third win of the year. Roark has been tagged with at least three runs in five of his last six starts while not lasting longer than five innings in any of them, saddling him with a 5.74 ERA and 1.79 WHIP for the season. The 33-year-old will next take the mound Wednesday against the Yankees in Buffalo.
Roark allowed four runs on eight hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out five in the win over Baltimore. He did not factor in the decision.
Roark didn't have a great outing but specifically struggled against rookie Ryan Mountcastle, who collected three hits off him, including two long balls. The 33-year-old righty allowed three or more runs in four of his five starts this month and currently owns a 5.33 ERA. He's also yet to go deeper than the fifth inning in any start this season. Roark is expected to face the Red Sox on the road Friday.
Roark allowed three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two over five innings Monday against the Rays. He didn't factor into the decision.
Roark gave up a solo homer in the second, followed by a two-run shot to right before exiting with a 3-1 deficit. The Blue Jays would rally in the sixth and seventh, allowing Roark to come away with the no-decision. The 33-year-old sits with a 2-1 record to go along with a 4.91 ERA and 17:13 K:BB over 22 innings this season, and while he hasn't looked overly sharp, his club has managed to win four of the five games he's started so far this year.
Roark (2-1) earned the win Wednesday against the Orioles after giving up two runs (one earned) on nine hits with five strikeouts and one walk over five innings.

Roark hasn't been able to get into a groove over his past two starts, but he finished with a no-decision due to a Blue Jays rally late in the game. The right-hander now carries a 6.00 ERA and 10:9 K:BB over 12 innings during his first three starts of the season. He'll look to turn things around on the road Wednesday against the Orioles.
Roark (1-1) took the loss Friday, giving up four runs on three hits and five walks over three innings in a 5-3 defeat at the hands of the Red Sox. He struck out one.
The right-hander was making his first start since July 28 due to the Blue Jays' scheduling chaos, and the layoff clearly affected him. Roark threw only 31 of 68 pitches for strikes before getting the hook, and two of the three hits off him left the yard. The 33-year-old will look to rebound in his next outing, scheduled for next Friday at home against the Rays.

Roark is scheduled for a two-start week and lines up to pitch against the Phillies on Sunday, and he should continue ramping up his pitch count as the season progresses.
Roark is expected to toss a bullpen session Thursday, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
The timing of the bullpen session means that Roark won't start in the Blue Jays' opening series, but he should be on track to pitch early next week. The right-hander hasn't handled his normal workload in past sessions, but Thursday's bullpen could provide a better idea of how many innings he could last to begin the season. It's possible that he could piggyback with a long reliever for his first few turns through the rotation.
Roark is expected to toss four innings Saturday, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander is locked into a rotation spot for the Jays, but it doesn't appear as though Roark will be ready to handle a regular workload to begin the season. Don't be surprised if he piggybacks with a long reliever for his first start or two, limiting his chances of picking up a win.
Roark (illness) has been cleared to start Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
With Roark having made a full recovery from the case of the flu that had sidelined him earlier in camp, he'll now take the hill for his season debut in what will most likely be a two- or three-inning appearance. The time he's missed puts Roark behind schedule compared to the Jays' other rotation candidates, but he's expected to be ready to handle a starter's workload by the time his first scheduled turn of the regular season arrives in late March.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said Roark (illness) will make his Grapefruit League debut at some point next week, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Roark missed the start of his first camp with the Blue Jays while recovering from a bout with the flu, but the right-hander has moved past the illness and is merely getting his arm conditioned for starting duty at this point. He's scheduled to throw a simulated game this weekend, so if that goes well, the Blue Jays should pinpoint a date for his spring debut shortly thereafter.
Roark (illness) threw a bullpen session Sunday and felt good afterward, Arden Zwelling of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Roark has missed about a week of workouts during spring training as he battles the flu, but he was able to resume throwing Sunday with a bullpen session. If the right-hander is able to rebuild his strength ahead of Opening Day, he'll likely play a prominent role in Toronto's starting rotation this season after signing with the team during the offseason.
Manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday that Roark still remains away from camp while recovering from the flu, though the skipper doesn't believe the right-hander is in danger of missing the start of the season, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Roark has missed the last four days of workouts due to the ailment and won't be available when the Blue Jays open their Grapefruit League schedule Saturday. Assuming Roark is able to shake off the bug and rejoin the team next week, he should be able to build up his arm enough to handle a starter's workload by the time Opening Day arrives. Roark is locked into a rotation spot after Toronto inked him to a two-year, $24 million deal over the winter.
Roark was sent home Monday due to an illness, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.
Manager Charlie Montoyo revealed Monday that Roark was sick and sent home. However, the illness doesn't sound too severe, and it wouldn't be surprising to see the right-hander back at spring training in the coming days.
Roark signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Blue Jays on Wednesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
