Dealing with a losing record despite his 1.01 WHIP and .189 opponents' average, Liriano could find some reward under ideal conditions: ERAs of 2.30 ERA on the road and 2.25 in daylight, balanced by the 5-10 record vs. Tigers.

Ryan was supposed to pitch Saturday until a rainout and Justin Verlander's return forced the Tigers to push back his start. The lefty has started three games this year, but his last outing was 12 pitches in relief on June 24.

Taking the mound in Pittsburgh might be a good thing for Bauer (6-5, 3.96 ERA), who has a 1.69 ERA in seven starts on the road this season. On Sunday in Baltimore, the righty took a loss after giving up four runs in seven innings.

For his third career start, Anderson (1-0, 0.57 ERA) will finally face a team other than the Rays. On Monday, "Big Country" carried a perfect game through 19 Tampa Bay batters, and ended with one run yielded over eight innings.

Locke will be mindful of more aggressively attacking the strike zone to avoid the deep counts that have shortened each of his last two starts. Besides a high walk rate (33 in 83 innings), he deals with a lot of three-ball counts.

Salazar (7-3, 3.80 ERA) logged five perfect innings on Tuesday en route to a win over the Rays. The hard-throwing righty struck out two, walked two and allowed two runs (one earned) over 7 2/3 innings for the Tribe.

Cole rarely leaves his games in other people's hands - the no-decision in his last start was only his third in 22 starts reverting to last season. He allowed season highs in hits (eight, then nine) in each of his last two starts.
