After a rough go of it in August, Blake Snell turned in one of the best performances of his brief major league career his last time out against the Toronto Blue Jays. Snell allowed just a run on two hits while he walked two and struck out seven over six innings pitched.

Michael Pineda Scouting Report:

Michael Pineda has been a bag of mixed nuts this season, which means he's been terrible as all nuts are just awful. His last time out, he limited the damage, but lasted just four innings due to a high pitch count. He allowed two runs on five hits, while he walked two and struck out four en route to a no-decision.
