Mejia has rattled off four straight saves since blowing a save opportunity on July 7, which was also the last time he issued a walk before Tuesday. He owns a 3.80 ERA and 66:32 K:BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings.
deGrom (4-5) has dominated the competition while picking up three straight wins, giving up just two earned runs in 21 innings while striking out 26 and walking three. The impressive stretch gives him a 3.01 ERA and 79:29 K:BB ratio in 80 2/3 innings. deGrom is scheduled to do battle with the Brewers Sunday.
Ramirez (1-5) was making his first start with the Mariners in nearly a month and fared well, but the offense couldn't provide him with enough support to pick up his first win since April 1. He owns a 4.35 ERA and 52:31 K:BB ratio in 60 innings. Ramirez is expected to be sent back down if the Mariners expect Taijuan Walker to stick in the rotation.
Reed took blown saves and losses in two of his first three July appearances, but he's managed to successfully convert his last four save opportunities by tossing four scoreless innings. He owns a 3.98 ERA and 44:11 K:BB ratio in 40 2/3 innings.
De La Rosa (2-0) came in with one out and two runners in scoring position, and he struck out the first batter he faced. After issuing an intentional walk to load the bases with two outs, he got out of the inning with another strikeout. De La Rosa owns a 3.18 ERA and 5:3 K:BB ratio in 5 2/3 innings.
Coke (1-2) retired the first batter he faced in the eighth inning on a comebacker to the pitcher, but he walked the next two guys he faced before being removed. Both would eventually come around to score. Coke owns a 4.79 ERA and 23:14 K:BB ratio in 35 2/3 innings.
Porcello, who was in line to take sole possession of the major-league lead in wins before the bullpen blew the lead, surrendered all three runs on Aaron Hill at-bats: one on a solo home run, the second on a sacrifice fly and the third on a groundout. He owns a 3.42 ERA and 72:28 K:BB ratio in 126 1/3 innings. Porcello is scheduled to face the Angels Sunday.
Anderson managed to record a decision in each of his first 10 career starts, but the bullpen couldn't hold his lead after he left Tuesday's game. After giving up a run on two hits in the top of the first inning, he surrendered just one run on a wild pitch over the remainder of the start. Anderson owns a 3.58 ERA and 52:22 K:BB ratio in 60 1/3 innings. He's slated to face the Reds Monday.
Bergman is working his way back from a hand injury. He's not eligible to return until August 20, and could be ready by then based on how often he continues to throw. Bergman posted a 7.20 ERA over three starts prior to the injury.
Lyles was able to get through a bullpen session Tuesday. He performed well, putting him on pace to return from the disabled list August 4. Lyles will begin a rehab assignment Saturday at Class A Modesto. He is expected to receive one more rehab start, and start in the majors August 5 if that goes well. He's attempting to come back from a hand injury.
