The Cardinals' most consistent starter in the early going, Weaver roared out of the gate after a strong spring. Now the righty (2-0, 2.08) eyes his first career win against the rival Cubs.

Lester did not get a decision last time out, giving up four earned runs on seven hits in five innings. He was most bothered by three walks and said he needs to "clean that up." Lester was 2-1 with a 2.93 ERA in five starts vs. St. Louis last year.

Hendricks posted a quality start in his last outing against the Pirates but took the loss, serving up a pair of home runs for the second straight outing. The problem was fastball command that the righty said will be his focus between starts.

For five innings in his last start, Gray held the Nationals to one run and pitched out of some two-out jams. But he yielded four runs and didn't escape the sixth, and his frustrating early season continued.

Darvish was fine through the first four innings in his last outing, but a balk call against him in the 5th created some frustration and led to a loss. He's failed to pitch past the 5th in two of his three starts. This will be his 1st game at Coors.

Anderson walked a career-high six in 4 2/3 innings on Sunday at Washington, but was rescued by a comeback offensive effort after he left. Now he needs help earlier. The Rox have given him 2.37 runs of support while he's on the mound.

In his last outing, Quintana pitched 2 1/3 innings, his shortest start since Sept. 2, 2013, vs. the Yanks. Part of the problem was the weather as it was wet and cold at Wrigley.

A devastating combination of a mid-to-upper 90s fastball and a mid 70s curve helped Marquez baffle the Pirates to the tune of two hits and six strikeouts in six innings of a win in his last start.
