After a subpar homecoming in Kansas City, Greinke bounced back at Dodger Stadium against the Cardinals on Saturday, allowing just one run in seven innings and striking out 10. He credited better offspeed command as a major factor in the win.
Morales began the year in the starting rotation but pitched his way out of it because of his inability to prevent home runs. With Jhoulys Chacin's continuing shoulder issues, however, Morales is the best option.

It's hard to pitch much better than Kershaw has. The NL Pitcher of the Month for June hasn't allowed a run in 28 innings, including his June 18 no-hitter. The streak continued in a seven-inning, 13-strikeout win against the Cardinals on Sunday.

After allowing 14 home runs in nine starts -- at least one in each -- Haren delivered his best outing of the season Monday. There were no home runs to speak of in seven scoreless innings of one-hit baseball. The lone hit was an infield single.
After two straight starts of fewer than four innings, De La Rosa has pitched at least six in two straight. He allowed four runs on four hits over six to the Brewers on Sunday, though he threw three wild pitches.

It was a struggle for Beckett on Tuesday vs. the Tribe, as he left his offspeed pitches up all night. He allowed five runs in five innings, snapping a 14-inning scoreless streak. Don Mattingly said Beckett was dealing with soreness before the start.
Flande was pitching well in his last start at Washington but was removed for a matchup in the sixth. The move went awry and Flande lost. But he forced eight ground-ball outs in 5 1/3 innings, and fanned three to one walk.
