Anthony Swarzak makes his first start since mid July. He's been fairly good this year, but he's been pitching well below his xFIP (4.82) due to a very low BABIP allowed (.265) and a low home run rate (5.6% HR/FB). I expect at some point Swarzak's peripherals will catch up to him. The way things are going, I wouldn't be surprised if tonight's the night.
