Description: Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke gets lit up by Atlanta.
Insight: He lasted only four innings, yielding six runs on eight hits and five walks. Locke is now 7-6 with a 3.91 ERA.
 
9/19/2014 10:23:00 PM
Description: Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke pitched seven innings, allowed two runs on five hits, struck out three and walked none as Pittsburgh beat Milwaukee, 4-2.
Insight: Locke did not receive the win as the Pirates rallyed in the bottom of the eighth to take the lead. The outing was still very nice for Locke, who is know to have control problems, as he did not walk a batter. That is only the sixth time that has happened in 20 starts this season. Locke is 7-5 with a 3.60 ERA.
 
8/27/2014 4:19:00 PM
Description: Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke won his second straight game, pitching into the eighth inning, allowing just one run on six hits, striking out three and walking two as the Pirates beat the Cardinals, 3-1.
Insight: The outing (7 1/3 IP) was Locke's longest since July 6. The only run Locke allowed was a solo home run to Matt Holliday in the third inning. Over his last five starts, the 26-year-old is 4-0 with a 2.90 ERA.
 
8/23/2014 9:49:00 AM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke worked around six walks to win Friday's game at Milwaukee.
Insight: Locke gave up two runs on two runs and didn't strike out anyone in six innings. Walks were a big problem for Locke in 2013, as he issued 4.55 per nine innings. While he walked just 1.44 per nine in his first 81 innings this season, Locke has issued 12 free passes in his last 16 2/3 innings.
 
8/16/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke held the Nationals scoreless over 5 2/3 innings and left with a 3-0 lead Saturday, but the bullpen blew the game.
Insight: Locke has been a solid back-end starter this season, going 4-3 with a 3.73 ERA, a 1.22 WHIP and a 63/19 K/BB in 91 2/3 innings.
 
Hot8/6/2014 10:08:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke bounced back from two straight shaky starts Wednesday against Miami.
Insight: Locke struck out seven, walked none and gave up three runs on six hits in a win Wednesday night. He allowed 10 earned runs on 19 hits over 12 innings his previous two starts. Locke has trimmed his BB/9 from 4.55 last season to 1.44 this year, but throwing more strikes has resulted in a spike in home runs (1.22 HR/9).
 
Hot7/20/2014 5:04:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke threw his eighth straight quality start Sunday against the Rockies.
Insight: Locke has cut his walks down from 4.55 per nine last season to 1.16 this year. The left-hander is 2-1 with a 3.05 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP in 62 innings.
 
Hot7/6/2014 4:54:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke has thrown six straight quality starts since he was recalled from the minors on June 8.
Insight: He was solid again on Sunday against the Phillies, going eight innings and yielding just four hits and one earned run to lower his ERA to 3.08.
 
Hot7/1/2014 9:54:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke has thrown five straight quality starts since he was recalled from the minors on June 8.
Insight: He's gone 1-1 with a 2.48 ERA in that span. Locke threw eight innings and allowed two runs Tuesday against the Diamondbacks. He was an All-Star in 2013 before fading in the second half and has cut his BB/9 down from 4.55 last year to 1.08 in 2014.
 
6/8/2014 4:59:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh left-hander Jeff Locke was outdueled by Milwaukee starter Yovani Gallardo Sunday at PNC Park.
Insight: Locke, who has taken over Gerrit Cole's spot in the starting rotation, pitched well, allowing just three hits and one run in seven innings of work. His next start will be Friday against the Marlins.

Description: The Pirates will call up Jeff Locke Monday to pitch against the Giants. SOURCE: Rob Biertempfel, Pittsburgh Tribune
Insight: Despite being an All-Star last season, Locke didn't make the team out of spring training. He's gone 0-1 with a 5.68 ERA in four starts for Triple-A Indianapolis.
 
9/29/2013 1:32:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh lefty Jeff Locke won't pitch again in 2013. SOURCE: Michael Sanserino, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Insight: He was unlikely to make the team's postseason roster anyway. After putting together a stellar first half (8-2, 2.15 ERA in 109 innings), Locke hasn't looked right since the All-Star break (2-5, 6.12 in 12 appearances).
 
Cold9/24/2013 6:08:00 PM
Description: Pirates pitcher Jeff Locke is not expected to start again this season, according to MLB.com.
Insight: Much like former Pirates pitcher James McDonald in 2012, Locke had a fantastic first half and a disastrous second half this season. He went 8-2 with a 2.15 ERA before the All-Star break and is 2-5 with a 6.12 ERA in the second half.
 
9/12/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: Pittsburgh lefthander Jeff Locke (7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 5 K's, 1 BB) earned his tenth win of the year Thursday against the Cubs.
Insight: Thursday was Locke's first victory in almost two months (July 21st against Cincinnati). He'll try and make it two straight when he pitches Tuesday against the Padres.
 
Cold9/7/2013 10:21:00 PM
Description: In his return to the Pirates rotation, Jeff Locke allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits with four walks over five innings.
Insight: Locke used smoke and mirrors to go 9-2 with a 2.11 ERA over his first 115 innings this year, but he has put 83 men on base and allowed 28 earned runs over his last 38 1/3 innings (6.57 ERA, 2.17 WHIP). Saturday was his first outing since being demoted to the minors in late August.
 
9/3/2013 5:52:00 PM
Description: According to Tom Singer of MLB.com, Jeff Locke will rejoin the Pirates rotation Saturday against the Cardinals.
Insight: Locke was demoted to the minors at the end of August to rest after struggling for the last month. The left-hander was 9-2 with a 2.11 ERA after his start on July 21 but he has gone 0-2 with a 7.02 ERA and a 2.28 WHIP over his last seven starts. He'll need to pitch well to earn a spot in the postseason rotation.
 
8/29/2013 9:28:00 PM
Description: Jeff Locke's stay in the minor leagues won't be a long one. He's expected to rejoin the Pirates rotation next Tuesday against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
Insight: The Bucs have opted to skip Locke's turn in the rotation on Sunday to give him some extra rest. He's really struggled in the second half but it appears the Pirates still have faith in him. Fantasy owners, however, may not be as forgiving.
 
Cold8/28/2013 8:33:00 PM
Description: The Pirates are sending struggling lefthander Jeff Locke down to Double-A Altoona.
Insight: Locke has officially reached rock bottom. In less than two months, he's gone from an All-Star to a full-fledged fantasy disaster. Since the break, Locke is 1-2 with an ERA over six. Opponents are hitting .340 against him over that span. At this point, it's doubtful Locke (9-4, 3.22 ERA in 26 starts) would be asked to start a game in the postseason.
 
Cold8/27/2013 10:37:00 PM
Description: Pirates starter Jeff Locke's season continued to unravel Tuesday against the Brewers.
Insight: Locke allowed five earned runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. After going 9-2 with a 2.11 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over his first 115 innings, Locke is 0-2 with a 7.02 ERA and a 2.28 WHIP over 33 1/3 his last seven starts.
 
Cold8/6/2013 10:22:00 PM
Description: Pirates lefty Jeff Locke has allowed 27 hits and walked 10 batters over his last 16 1/3 innings.
Insight: Locke, who has been unreal with runners on base all season, has limited the damage to nine earned runs in that span (4.96 ERA) despite recording a 2.27 WHIP. After posting a .223 BABIP and a 3.77 FIP (2.11 ERA) over his first 19 starts this year, Locke is finally experiencing some regression.
