Bauer (7-4) gave up five earned runs on five hits and four walks over four-plus innings in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Orioles. He struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander ran into trouble with the long ball right from the start, giving up a three-run blast to Mark Trumbo in the first that plated Adam Jones and Manny Machado, and then yielding a 418-foot solo shot to Machado in the third as well. Bauer has endured a rough month of July, giving up 14 runs (13 earned) on 22 hits in 20.2 innings over four starts. He'll look to rebound against the A's on Friday.

Bauer (7-3) allowed four runs, three of which were earned, on seven hits and three walks while striking out six over six innings, but received no decision Saturday at the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer had a 4-2 lead going into the seventh inning, but gave up a pair of runs without retiring a batter to blow the lead. After holding opponents to two or fewer earned runs in six straight starts, he now has allowed eight earned runs in his last 11 innings over two starts to raise his ERA to 3.36 on the year. He'll make his next start Friday at the Orioles.

Bauer (7-3) allowed five runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out four over 5.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer sailed through the first four innings with a 2-0 lead, but fell apart by giving up two runs in the fifth inning and three more in the sixth inning to force his exit from the contest. This was the first time he's failed to fire a quality start over his last eight outings, and he now has a 3.30 ERA along with a 1.20 WHIP on the year. He'll make his next start after the All-Star break

Bauer (7-2) fired five innings of two-hit, shutout ball in Friday's 2-1, 19-inning marathon victory over the Blue Jays. He walked three and struck out three hitters as well.

EDGE Analysis

Pitching on three days rest after a Monday victory over the Braves, Bauer was outstanding over 81 pitches and ate up some valuable innings for a weary relief corps. The 25-year-old has now rattled off four straight victories, lowering his ERA well over a full run over that span.

Bauer (6-2) earned the win on Monday by holding the Braves to two runs over six innings. He allowed five hits, walked three, and struck out five.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer closes out what has been a truly fantastic month on a high note. In June, Bauer has allowed a mere 10 earned runs in 44.2 innings. He's been a force since joining the Indians' rotation earlier this season and now owns a 3.19 ERA to go with his 1.17 WHIP. He'll make his next start Saturday in Toronto.

Bauer (5-2) three-hit the Rays on Wednesday, striking out 10 while allowing just a single run in a complete-game victory.

EDGE Analysis

Long have we waited for the efficient version of Bauer that's showed up over his last four outings. In that span, he's struck out 32 batters over 31.2 innings while crucially allowing only six walks. He's pitched at least seven innings in five straight starts, finally starting to live up to the promise that caused the Indians to select him third overall in the 2011 draft. It's been a long road for Bauer, but he's inducing many more balls on the ground these days (including a whopping 14 on Wednesday), which has been crucial to cutting down on his homers -- which have been his co-bugaboo along with walks. His 0.64 HR/9 and 2.88 BB/9 are both easily career-best rates.

Bauer didn't factor into the decision against the White Sox on Friday despite striking out nine and surrendering only four hits, an earned run and three walks over seven innings.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old turned in his fifth straight quality start, although he's only secured one victory over that span. Bauer's effective performance Friday included 13 swinging strikes, and he didn't give up a homer for the third consecutive start. The right-hander will try to improve on his 4-2 record next Wednesday when he takes on Chris Archer and the Rays.

Bauer (4-2) delivered eight quality innings, allowing three runs (two earned), nine hits and one walk while striking out three Saturday against the Angels. He did not factor in the decision.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer was dealing for eight innings without getting a single run of support, but in the top of the ninth, his offense put up three to help the right-hander avoid his third loss. The eight-inning effort was his longest of the season, and Bauer has now pitched seven-plus innings in his last three starts - something he did only once before June. He'll take a 3.69 ERA and 1.27 WHIP into his next start Friday against the White Sox.

Bauer (4-2) allowed just one run on five hits and a walk and struck out 10 over 7.2 innings in a win Monday over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer is finding a groove of late, as he now has three consecutive quality starts with a solid 20:6 K:BB in 20.2 innings over that span. The electricity that enticed talent evaluators in his early career is starting to show up. He induced 14 swinging strikes in Monday's win and now has three starts with at least as many whiffs in his past six outings. Bauer's 22 walks in 61.1 innings (3.2 BB/9) still leaves him on the wild side, but it would be the best mark of his career, and given his sharp arsenal, that might be just enough control to give him a chance to succeed.

Bauer (3-2) allowed three runs on four hits, struck out six and walked three over six innings in a no-decision against the Rangers on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander coughed up a one-run lead in the seventh by allowing a solo homer. Cleveland won the game but didn't break the tie until the 11th. Bauer threw 64 of his 105 pitches for strikes, inducing 10 swing-and-misses. He now has 47 strikeouts in 52.2 innings. His next start will be Monday versus Seattle.
