Lucas Harrell, Houston Astros (4-3, 3.72 ERA)

Harell showed up Clayton Kershaw in his last start, allowing just one run on five singles over 7 1/3 innings of a 3-1 win. He didn’t strike out a batter and walked three, but only needed 94 pitches to get the job done thanks to his dirty sinker. Harell forced the Dodgers into 17 groundball outs and hasn’t allowed more than two runs in his last four trips to the hill.

Yovani Gallardo, Milwaukee Brewers (3-4, 4.19 ERA)

If it weren’t for two rotten starts, Gallardo’s numbers would be much better. He just allowed one run over 7 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking three in a win over Arizona. The victory was Gallardo’s eighth quality start of the season and has thrown at least six innings in each of his last five turns in the rotation.


Slumping

Ian Kennedy, Arizona Diamondbacks (3-5, 4.65 ERA)

Kennedy finished with five losses last season, but has already eclipsed that number before June this year. He was smacked for four runs on seven hits in 5 2/3 innings in a 7-1 loss to Milwaukee. Kennedy gave up two taters and has now yielded seven homers in his last four starts.

Jon Lester, Boston Red Sox (3-4, 4.72 ERA)

Lester’s up-and-down season continues. He allowed seven earned runs and three home runs in last week’s 7-4 loss to the Rays, throwing 48 strikes in his 81 pitches. He won his two previous starts before that, but allowed eight hits in each and allowed four runs in five innings against Philadelphia.

Prepare for the worst: What's behind Weaver and Halladay?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Nothing causes a baseball fan to gasp in horror like seeing your team’s ace grimace on the mound.

The slow, worried walk of the manager out to the pitcher is usually paced by the trance-like chanting of “Oh shit, Oh shit, Oh shit” by team faithful - especially if the pitching reservoirs are an unknown commodity.

There are more than a few worried clubs out there with top-tier hurlers nursing ailments, most recently the Philadelphia Phillies with Roy Halladay, and the Los Angeles Angels with Jered Weaver.

Here’s a look at those injuries and how each team would absorb the loss of a staff ace:

Jered Weaver, Los Angeles Angeles

Weaver left with back pain in the first inning of Monday’s start against the New York Yankees and is now headed for a stint on the 15-day DL. The stud right-hander, who is 6-1 with a 2.61 ERA.

The injury comes at a bad time for the Halos, who take on the Yankees and Texas Rangers this week, hoping to jump above .500. On top of that, the staff is monitoring starter C.J. Wilson, who is day-to-day with a blisters on his fingers. And not the good Ringo Starr kind either.

Relievers Bobby Cassevah and Jordan Walden stepped in for the bulk of the innings once Weaver went down – two of five bullpen pitchers used Monday. Los Angeles could call up Garrett Richards from Triple-A Salt Lake (6.30 ERA in May). Richards appeared in seven games – three starts – last year, posting a 0-2 record and 5.79 ERA with the Angels.

Roy Halladay, Philadelphia Phillies

The Doc visited the doctor to get a closer look at his ailing right shoulder and will now be on the DL for six to eight weeks with a shoulder strain. Halladay left in the second inning of Sunday’s loss to the St. Louis Cardinals and had to wait a day to be examined due to the Memorial Day holiday. Halladay has been a workhorse, having avoided the disabled list since 2005.

Philadelphia is already down one starter, with budding ace Vance Worley on the 15-day DL due to elbow inflammation. With Halladay being shut down for a while, the team can hold up with a four-man rotation until June 6 thanks to a break in the schedule Thursday. Then they may need to dig into Triple-A Lehigh Valley, possibly calling up Dave Bush (4-3, 2.73 ERA), Tyler Cloyd (4-1, 2.15 ERA) or Scott Elarton (5-1, 2.98 ERA).

Ted Lilly, Los Angeles Dodgers

The injury bug has struck the Dodgers rotation, putting left-hander Ted Lilly on the shelf for 15 days with shoulder inflammation. Lilly was off to a strong start for Los Angeles, going 5-1 with a 3.14 ERA and earning 4.17 units.

The Dodgers brought in fellow southpaw Michael Antonin from Triple-A Albuquerque for Monday but sent him back in place of Double-A Chattanooga arm Nathan Eovaldi, who takes the mound in place of Lilly Tuesday. Eovaldi appeared in 10 games – six starts – last season, posting a 1-2 record and 3.63 ERA.

Yu Darvish, Texas Rangers

The Rangers have their fingers crossed for Darvish after the Japanese sensation left his start against the Toronto Blue Jays in the fifth inning due to a sore back Sunday. The rookie right-hander told reporters it may have been a stomach issue that caused the discomfort in his lower back, but Texas won’t be taking chances with its $108 million arm.

Already without the services of starter Neftali Feliz, who is expected to sit until at least the All-Star break with a sprained ulnar collateral ligament, the Rangers signed veteran Roy Oswalt to a one-year deal Tuesday. It's thought the 34 year old will need a couple of weeks before he's ready for big-league hitters. Meanwhile, reliever Scott Feldman has stepped into the rotation in place of Feliz, going 0-2 in three starts heading into Tuesday.

As for Darvish, he’s scheduled to start against the Angels and C.J. Wilson – the man he replaced in the rotation – this Saturday. There has been a stomach bug going around the Texas clubhouse, so the discomfort could pass before the weekend. However, if not, Texas would need to dip into the Triple-A ranks, looking to oft-injured Greg Reynolds or Neil Ramirez.
