Analysis: LeBlanc, 32, will make $750,000 in 2017 and a club option for 2018 is worth $1.25 million with a $50,000 buyout, according to reports. In eight games and 12 innings in Pittsburgh, he allowed one earned run, striking out 10 and walking two with one save.

Analysis: LeBlanc was designated for assignment by Seattle on Aug. 25 and sent outright to Triple-A Tacoma on Sept. 4. The 32-year-old posted a 3-0 mark with one save and a 4.50 ERA in 11 appearances with the Mariners after being acquired from the Toronto Blue Jays on June 22.

Analysis: LeBlanc could draw interest on the waiver wire after compiling a 3-0 record and a 4.43 ERA in eight starts with Seattle, though his fantasy value would remain minimal.

Analysis: The well-traveled lefty has been decent since joining the rotation in late June, compiling a 2-0 record and a 4.35 ERA in seven starts. LeBlanc draws another potentially favorable matchup in a home date with Milwaukee on Friday.

Analysis: LeBlanc was fantastic in his first two starts after returning from Japan, tossing 12 innings and allowing two runs. Perhaps his true performance lies somewhere in between this start and those.

Analysis: Seattle manager Scott Servais said Tuesday that Taijuan Walker would start on Thursday against Baltimore and LeBlanc would be pushed back to Friday. That left out Karns, who for a time earlier this season was Seattle's most consistent starter but has struggled to get deep into games. LeBlanc allowed three hits in six scoreless innings of his 2016 debut in Friday's win over St. Louis.
