Bauer has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts, and over that stretch, he's posted a 3.35 ERA (backed by a 2.93 FIP) to go with a 1.35 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 37.2 innings. He gets to take on a Mariners' offense that is 22nd in baseball against right-handed pitching with a .301 wOBA and 20th with a .682 OPS.

Alvarez has been a must-start at home all season long where he boasts a 1.64 ERA to go with a 1.03 WHIP and 40 strikeouts in 66 innings. He'll look to benefit from some more home cooking when the Marlins take on a Nationals team that has been below-average this season against right-handed pitching.

Stroman has simply been too good to pass up. He has a 3.21 ERA this season to go with a 1.10 WHIP and 59 strikeouts over 67.1 innings. He's gone seven innings while giving up zero runs in three of his last four starts; and his last start was a seven-inning, one-hit, two-walk shutout in which he struck out seven against the Red Sox on July 24.
