Cubs' Jon Lester: Struggles in loss to Rays
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lester (11-8) allowed seven runs on eight hits and three walks without striking out a batter through 4.1 innings to take the loss against Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Lester had won his previous three games, so it was discouraging to see him struggle in what projected to be a favorable matchup. His seven earned runs allowed were a season high, and he now sports an underwhelming 4.52 ERA and 1.34 WHIP for the campaign. The veteran lefty lines up for a road start against St. Louis and a home start against Cincinnati to finish the season, but it's worth noting that the Cubs could opt to rest Lester is a playoff spot is secured.

Indians' Josh Tomlin: Two outs shy of quality start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tomlin gave up two runs on seven hits over 5.1 innings Wednesday while striking out five but didn't factor into the decision in a 6-5 win over the Angels.

He got the hook after only 83 pitches (57 strikes) with the score knotted at 2-2, as manager Terry Francona continues to limit Tomlin's workload. The righty now has a 2.91 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in four September starts, but hasn't completed six innings in any of them. He's set for one more trip to the mound in the regular season Wednesday at home against the Twins.

Diamondbacks' David Peralta: Cranks 14th homer Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Peralta went 2-for-4 with a walk, a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Wednesday's 13-7 win over the Padres.

His leadoff shot to begin the game started a trend, as the two teams ended up combining for a Petco-record nine homers on the night. Peralta now has 14 home runs on the season but this was his first since Aug. 18, leaving him with some work to do if he wants to match or top his previous career high of 17.

Diamondbacks' Robbie Ray: Escapes with no-decision Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ray was tagged for five runs on five hits -- including three home runs -- and five walks over 4.1 innings Wednesday but was able to escape with a no-decision in a 13-7 win over the Padres. He struck out six.

It was a wild night in Petco Park, as the two teams combined for a stadium-record nine homers, and Ray had served up only two long balls total in his prior six starts and 34 innings, so don't read too much into the ugly stat line. The lefty's final start of the regular season is scheduled for Tuesday at home against the Giants.

Dodgers' Pedro Baez: Will receive mental break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts announced that Baez will receive a "couple of days off" to clear his mind, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Tuesday's disastrous four-run implosion brought Baez's September ERA up to 20.77 through seven appearances. The hard-throwing righty had experienced a long run of success as the Dodgers' primary setup man prior to this month (1.79 ERA and 22 holds), but his recent struggles combined with the announcement of his mental break have taken him completely out of the fantasy picture. Brandon Morrow and Josh Fields should see any hold opportunities that arise in his absence.
