Astin has started eight games in 2016, but has made 23 relief appearances. He posted a 1.83 ERA as a reliever. His first attempt at starting was not as strong and he has a 3.19 ERA overall in that role, but that has been lowered with his recent success.

Angelo Gumbs chipped in three hits and has hit .382 in his last 10 games.
