It's unknown if Pittsburgh Pirates SP Jeff Locke will make his next scheduled start Saturday, Sept. 28, after losing to the Cincinnati Reds Sunday, Sept. 22. Locke is 2-5 with a 6.12 ERA since the All-Star break.
Fantasy Tip: Locke is running out of steam and probably isn't the best option to rely on for one more start this week. Look elsewhere.

The Pittsburgh Pirates sent SP Jeff Locke to Double-A Altoona for what's called a "quick break." He's expected to be back up next week.
Fantasy Tip: Talk about a downfall for the 2013 All-Star. His first half was filled with good fortune, and he's fought the drop-off since the break. He'll be a shaky mixed play when he resurfaces, if he even lands back in the rotation.
