Pivetta allowed two homers in the first five pitches he threw Monday against the Dodgers, but settled in after that and allowed just those two runs in six innings. The Phillies love his arm, but he needs to be much more consistent.

Already touted as the most impressive prospect the Braves have brought to the Majors within their rebuild, this CC Sabathia clone can baffle hitters with his slider and a fastball that sits in the upper 90s.

With Mike Foltynewicz still dealing with a lacerated finger, Fried will get his first start since Sept. 9. The rookie southpaw will be on a limited pitch count since he has made just one relief appearance within the past two weeks.

Sims doesn’t have overwhelming stuff, but he has consistently commanded each of his four pitches. He believes spending time in the bullpen earlier this month helped him stop thinking too much between pitches.

Montero’s brief run of success has come to an abrupt end in September. Over his past 15 innings, spanning four starts, Montero owns a 7.80 ERA with 18 hits, nine walks and 13 strikeouts. He is unlikely to be part of the Mets’ 2018 rotation.

This could be the knuckleballer’s final career start. After struggling through the early portion of this month, he regained a feel for his knuckleball during Thursday’s eight-inning outing -- and win -- over the Nationals.
