Career stats

Rowley was excellent in his Major League debut on August 12, working very quickly through 5 1/3 innings while allowing just one run on five hits. After throwing 75 pitches in that outing, he could have an even longer leash against the Rays.

Happ is on a roll lately, having allowed just one run in each of his last three outings. The veteran lefty has surrendered more than three earned runs just twice since the start of June and hasn't lost since late July.

To Be Announced

Jake Arrieta is expected to open an Interleague series against the Blue Jays at Wrigley. He's now 4-1 with a 2.09 ERA since the break after picking up a win over the D-backs in his last start. The key? Fastball command.

Tepesch hung onto his spot in the rotation by allowing just one run over six-plus innings vs. the Cubs in his last start. That was enough to pick up his first big-league victory since September of 2014. His job is safe until Joe Biagini returns.

To Be Announced

It will be Jose Quintana's turn in the rotation, and he had a tough time with his fastball command in his last start. He did get the win, his third with the Cubs, giving up one earned run over five innings.

Estrada allowed six runs over 4 1/3 innings during his last start against the Rays in his shortest outing since June 30. Prior to that, Estrada has allowed three runs or less in four consecutive starts.

To Be Announced

Kyle Hendricks is on track for this start. He threw six scoreless innings in his last outing against the Reds, striking out six. He was encouraged by his fastball command and an uptick in velocity. In his last five starts, he has a 2.00 ERA.
