Jackson has turned in just two quality starts in his last nine outings, going 1-6 during that stretch and watching his ERA rise from 4.99 to 6.09.
"No one wants to be moved," Jackson said Wednesday. "The only thing you can do if you don't like it is go out there and pitch out of jams. I have to get back to having fun. Tonight was an example of absolutely not doing that. Just being uptight and battling yourself."
Lynn (14-8) was only at 94 pitches after seven innings, but a weather delay cost him the chance to go deeper into the game. He's surrendered more than two earned runs just once in his last nine starts going back to the beginning of July, and in that off game he only gave up three earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. Lynn owns a 2.78 ERA and 144:57 K:BB ratio in 158 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Pirates Tuesday.Analysis:
Cueto (15-7) had won each of his last five starts before the streak came to a halt Wednesday, when he allowed a three-run double with the bases loaded in the fifth inning and left the bases loaded again the top of the sixth at the time of his removal.

De La Rosa owns a 4.21 ERA and 109:52 K:BB ratio in 149 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Giants Tuesday.Analysis:
Peavy (3-12) has now won back-to-back games after taking 12 straight losses, including three in his first three starts with the Giants. The offense staked him to a four-run lead after one inning, and though he gave two of those runs back on a second-inning home run, he did a great job throughout the start despite the high hit total. Peavy owns a 4.48 ERA and 123:54 K:BB ratio in 156 2/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Rockies Monday.Analysis:
"He'll eventually get on a mound, but I haven't heard any talk about that," manager Don Mattingly said Wednesday. "He just started playing catch. He's got some time. We're not going to push him."
Ryu played catch for the second straight day Wednesday. He is working his way back from a strained right gluteus.Analysis:
Roark watched his lead evaporate in the eighth inning, when the Diamondbacks clubbed a two-run home run to even the game. He owns a 2.80 ERA and 118:36 K:BB ratio in 160 2/3 innings. Roark's next test will come Monday against the Phillies.Analysis:
