The Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and San Diego Padres are all either decidedly or seemingly using six-man rotations.
Dylan Covey has been filling in as the Chicago White Sox's fifth starter, with that spot due up next on Sept. 23, but the team has indicated that David Holmberg and Mike Pelfrey could be considered for spot starts in the final two weeks.
Andrew Heaney (shoulder) was scratched from his scheduled Friday start and will not be ready to pitch by the next time the Los Angeles Angels need a fifth starter on Sept. 23. The team will use another bullpen day to fill that start, with Bud Norris again serving as the "starter."
Mike Foltynewicz (finger) won't be ready to rejoin the Atlanta Braves' rotation until at least Sept. 25 (Monday of Week 25).
The New York Mets moved Jacob deGrom's (nausea) next start back to Sept. 24. They will also have Noah Syndergaard (DL: shoulder) start and pitch one inning on Sept. 23, with Matt Harvey following him in relief.
Adam Wainwright (elbow) was activated by the St. Louis Cardinals on Tuesday to work out of their bullpen, which will remain his role through at least regular season's end. With Jack Flaherty approaching his innings limit for the season, he'll be moved to the bullpen, with John Gant filling in for Flaherty on Sept. 24.
