McCarthy might've worked into the 6th inning in each of his first 4 starts had he not partially dislocated his non-pitching shoulder on April 11. The righty has limited the use of his slider and relied more on his curve in his past 2 outings.

Romano was cruising until the sixth inning on Tuesday at Milwaukee, when he gave up Eric Thames’ two-run homer for a 2-0 loss. It was a fastball over the plate and Romano was mad at himself, especially since first base was open.

Wisler earned a chance to stay in the rotation with the impressive 7-inning effort he made in place of Anibal Sanchez on Thursday vs. the Mets. He attacked the strike zone with his fastball and found a good feel for his slider in the latter innings.

Newcomb has provided a glimpse of his potential since struggling in his season debut. Improved fastball command has enhanced the value of his curveball and changeup in each of his past 3 outings, including a quality start on Friday vs. the Mets.
