A.J. Burnett, RHP
In the prime of his career, Burnett comes off his best start of the season, the one-hitter over the Cubs. He had never before been 10 wins over .500, and the Bucs are 16-3 in his starts. An off-day allows him to start Sunday on his regular schedule.
Homer Bailey, RHP
Bailey seemed to be his normal self in the early going on Tuesday against the Padres before getting hit hard in the fourth. The six earned runs given up Tuesday equaled the amount he allowed in his previous five July starts combined.
