Porcello will start Game 4 of the ALDS against the Astros on Monday, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello didn't finish the season in the best way, as he posted a 5.93 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over his last five starts. Over said games he threw 27.1 innings and put together a bleak 21:10 K:BB. He'll face a high-scoring Astros offense in Monday's must-win contest.

Porcello (11-17) allowed five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out eight over 5.2 innings in Wednesday's 10-7 win over the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello wasn't at his best. He allowed his 38th home run of the season, a three-run shot in the first inning to put Boston in an early hole. Thankfully for him, the Red Sox bats showed up. That hasn't happened often this season as Porcello entered the game next-to-last among AL starts, getting just 4.3 runs of support over nine innings. He finishes the regular season with a 4.65 ERA, an ugly number that his 4.65 FIP feels is well deserved.

Porcello (10-17) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three across four innings, but received no decision Friday against the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello gave up a grand slam to Scooter Gennett in the first inning, but the offense came back to score enough runs to take him off the hook for a potential loss. He had just pieced together a pair of decent starts, but just as it's been for most of the season, he's struggled to have sustained success, which has made him an erratic fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Porcello (10-17) earned the win after allowing one unearned run on five hits and one walk in 7.1 innings Saturday against the Rays. He struck out three batters.

EDGE Analysis

After losing to the same Tampa Bay team in his previous outing, Porcello bounced back with one of his best starts of the season, flashing his Cy Young form from last season. While he didn't strikeout many batters, he was able to take a shutout into the eighth inning before an unearned run scored. The 28-year-old had struggled to a 5.82 ERA and 1.75 WHIP over his past four starts, so it's nice to see him turn things around heading into the final weeks of the season. He'll look to keep lowering his 4.46 ERA in his next start, which is scheduled for Friday against the Reds.

Porcello (9-16) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks across five innings while taking the loss Sunday against the Rays. He struck out four.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello enjoyed a strong outing that was tarnished by a poor fifth inning in which he allowed a pair of runs on four hits and a walk. He ran up his pitch count at that point and did not return for the sixth, marking the second straight outing he failed to complete six frames. Porcello's outing was an improvement on the seven runs he allowed in his previous turn, but he has still allowed 14 runs over 21.2 innings in his last four. He will carry a subpar 4.64 ERA into Saturday's start agianst the same Rays club.

Porcello (9-16) took the loss Monday against the Jays as he was hammered for seven runs on 10 hits and a walk with three strikeouts over 5.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello was lit up for three homers and a pair of doubles out of the 10 hits he served up. He has now given up at least three home runs three times this season and has given up multiple homers a whopping 10 times. With 35 home runs given up this season, Porcello has eclipsed his career high by 10, the main reason he's the owner of a poor 4.67 ERA this season.

Porcello (9-15) picked up the win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday, allowing only one run on six hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while striking out seven.

EDGE Analysis

He was locked in a 1-1 pitcher's duel with J.A. Happ through six innings, but the Red Sox busted through against the Toronto bullpen in the top of the seventh to reward Porcello with the victory. The righty has now won five of his last six starts, echoing his 22-win campaign from last year, but his 4.04 ERA over that stretch isn't exactly Cy Young material. He'll match up again with the Jays back in Fenway Park on Monday.

Porcello (8-15) allowed 11 runs, four of which were earned, on nine runs and one walk while striking out four across 4.2 innings to take the loss Friday against the Orioles.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello gave up runs in each inning he pitched except for the fourth, and the only solace that fantasy owners can take was that seven of the runs he allowed were unearned. This horrible outing came after he allowed just six runs over his last 19 innings covering three starts, but overall, he's been a fairly reliable option over the last two months. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Porcello (8-14) tossed six one-run innings while earning the win Sunday against the Yankees, allowing three hits and three walks with four strikeouts.

EDGE Analysis

Porcello threw 65 percent of his pitches for strikes and induced six ground ball outs in this quality start. He was only scored upon via a solo home run from Brett Gardner in the fifth inning and received some late run support to secure the win. Porcello struggled into early August, but he has won four consecutive decisions this month and has delivered quality starts in each of his last three. He will take a 4.58 ERA into Friday's matchup with the Orioles.

Porcello will start Sunday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner -- though hardly performing like one on the whole in 2017 -- will duel with Sonny Gray. Porcello has looked better in recent weeks and is coming off back-to-back quality starts. Homers still plague him, though, so it's best to temper expectations against this typically strong lineup.
