Bauer (8-8) tossed five innings, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out six Blue Jays in Friday's win.

EDGE Analysis

The good news is that Bauer rebounded with a win after suffering one of the worst defeats of his career last time out. The bad news is that his control issues carried over as he issued six-plus walks for the first time since August of 2015. With a 5.58 ERA and 1.49 WHIP through 19 starts, Bauer's fantasy value is limited to AL-only leagues at this point. The right-hander will be happy to take the win, but he'll look for more efficiency next time out versus the Angels on Thursday.

Bauer is in line to start Friday's game against the Blue Jays, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Corey Kluber dealing with neck stiffness, the Indians will skip his scheduled start Friday while bumping up Bauer and Danny Salazar by a day. Instead of toeing the rubber during Saturday's contest, Bauer will now open the series while Kluber or Josh Tomlin close it out during Sunday's series finale, depending on Kluber's availability.

Bauer (7-8) failed to make it through the first inning Sunday, allowing four runs on three hits and three walks while striking out two in the loss to Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday's performance matched the shortest start of Bauer's big-league career. It was painfully obvious that the right-hander was out of whack as he tossed just 24 of his 43 pitches for strikes while watching his ERA inflate to 5.59. Bauer will look to sweep this one under the rug as he prepares for his next start against Toronto on Saturday.

Bauer (7-7) tossed five innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven Padres in a disappointing loss Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

In a favorable matchup against MLB's worst offense, Bauer failed to pitch more than five innings after doing just that in his four previous games. His command failed him, leading to an inefficient 107-pitch outing that luckily saw several Padres chase pitches out of the zone to keep Bauer afloat. The right-hander wraps up his first half of 2017 with an unimpressive 5.24 ERA over 17 starts.

Bauer (7-6) allowed one run on four hits and one walk while striking out three over 6.1 innings in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Rangers.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning, and the only blemish on his night came in the form of a Robinson Chirinos homer in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old has been pitching noticeably better since he started using his curveball more often; he's compiled a 3.99 ERA and 59 strikeouts over his last 10 starts (54.2 innings). He'll look to toss another gem when he toes the rubber Tuesday for a rematch against the Rangers.

Bauer (6-6) allowed five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four over 6.2 innings to take the loss Friday against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer gave up four runs in the second inning, and although he settled down nicely after that, the Indians were already well on their way to a home loss. Despite a 5.64 ERA, he's held opponents to three runs or fewer in eight of his last 10 starts, and based on his recent body of work, he's become a useful fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rangers.

Bauer (6-5) picked up the win and allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings Sunday against the Twins. He struck out eight and walked two.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer hasn't been overly effective in 2017, but has turned in two solid starts in a row, giving up four runs over 12.2 innings with 13 strikeouts. The right-hander shut out the Twins for the first six innings before they struck in the seventh, but Bauer was able to escape without them taking the lead, and he helped his team secure a 5-2 victory.

Bauer (5-5) pitched 3.1 innings, allowing four runs on five hits and five walks with three strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer pitched on two days rest after his last start was cut short by rain. The results were not too good, as he added another short outing on Wednesday. Bauer allowed a pair of two-RBI doubles, and failed to get out of the fourth inning against the Rockies. Despite a career-high 11.2 K/9, Bauer's ERA has sat almost exclusively over 6.00 this season. Outside of his rain-shortened outing, he's allowed three or more runs in seven of his last eight starts. Even with his gaudy strikeout numbers, Bauer's other stats are tough to stomach.

Bauer will have his next start pushed up to Wednesday in Colorado, Zack Meisel of Cleveland.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rain interfered with Bauer's turn Sunday, so manager Terry Francona decided to shuffle the rotation for the upcoming week. Bauer threw only 28 pitches before weather caused a two-hour delay, so the right-hander will be plenty fresh to take on the thin air at Coors Field Wednesday.

Bauer pitched 1.2 scoreless innings, allowing two hits and one walk in Sunday's 8-0 win over the Royals.

EDGE Analysis

Bauer was pitching in the bottom of the second inning when rain caused the game to be delayed for nearly two hours, keeping him from returning. Bauer had won three of his last four starts before Sunday, averaging nine strikeouts per start. Bauer should be extremely rested for his next start. He faces Jose Quintana and the White Sox next Sunday.
