Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, July 10

MLB: Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves


Maholm @ Turner – Maholm 5.18 ERA on the road, 4.75 in his last 5 overall

Leake @ Hellweg

Wheeler @ Cain – good matchup for both to iron things out

W. Davis @ Nova

Milone @ Liriano

Lindblom @ W. Chen

Rogers @ Masterson

G. Gonzalez @ Lee

Axelrod @ Porcello – Porcello worth the gamble if you’ve got the guts

Correia @ Hellickson

Wilson @ Samardzija

Lyles @ S. Miller – not chancing Lyles vs. the top offenses (yet)

Ryu @ Skaggs – tempting on Skaggs, but Dodgers are en fuego

Doubront @ Harang

De La Rosa @ Cashner


I had stashed Pineda in my DL slot, but with him being sent to Triple A and his big league return uncertain, I want to stash another injured pitcher who should be back soon. Should I grab Alexi Ogando or Brandon Beachy?

I’d go with Ogando. He’s expected to immediately rejoin the Rangers’ starting rotation while Pineda and Beachy’s 2013 roles remain up in the air, as we’re not even sure that rotation spots will be available to them. Both might end up pitching out of the bullpen for the rest of this season.


No love for doubront? He has been pitching lights out since June.
