Elias allowed a run on three hits with four walks and six strikeouts over five innings in a loss to the Rangers on Monday.
Elias has very good stuff and is striking out 8.27 batter per nine innings, but it's the walks that are hurting him in his last two starts. The young lefty issues 3.63 free passes per nine and could be a force with improved control. Elias will pitch Monday in Oakland.
