Career stats

Holmberg earned his first big league win Saturday over the Brewers behind the strength of a good changeup. Despite not being overpowering, his 86-89 fastball was spotted well and looked tougher in conjunction with the offspeed pitch.

Career stats

Due to arm fatigue, Lackey had his scheduled start skipped on Tuesday and was given an extra three days' rest. He lasted only two innings in a start against the Reds on Sept. 10 due to an ejection stemming from complaints about balls/strikes.

Leake crossed the 200-inning mark for the first time in his career in a loss Sunday at Milwaukee. Citing the feeling of a dead arm, Leake struggled with command and location, yanking his pitches out of the strike zone.

Career stats

Wacha will be pitching after a 10-day layoff that was built in after growing concerns about the lack of command he showed upon returning from a right shoulder injury. Wacha should be free to push toward 90 pitches if all goes right.
