After a couple weeks in Atlanta’s bullpen, Gohara will make his first start of the season and attempt to show why he is one of the game’s top pitching prospects. His fastball sits around 95 mph and he consistently commands his swing-and-miss slider.

Gaviglio staked his claim to a spot in the Blue Jays' rotation by tossing 5 1/3 scoreless innings vs. Oakland his last time out. With Jaime Garcia set to return soon, Gaviglio will need to keep pitching well to hang onto his starting job.

Eflin has fared well since replacing Ben Lively in the rotation, although he struggled for the first time over the weekend against the Cardinals. But his spot in the rotation seems secure for now with Jerad Eickhoff suffering a setback in Triple-A.

Nola looks like a lock to be a National League All-Star as he has emerged as the Phillies’ ace and one of the best pitchers in baseball. He took that step as his changeup has been almost as devastating as his curveball.
