Pitch or Ditch for Friday, July 12

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Cincinnati Reds

ZACH’S PICKS

Kelly @ Villanueva – Bad matchup for Villanueva. Kelly worth a look in deeper leagues.

Danks @ Pettibone – Pettibone pitching well but I’m not feeling this matchup.

B. Chen @ Kluber – Kluber strictly an AL-only play. These aren’t your older brother’s Royals.

Diamond @ Kuroda

Hefner @ Morton – NL-only owners should consider Morton though.

Buehrle @ Tillman

Grimm @ Fister

Cosart @ Price – Cosart a must-pickup in AL-only leagues but I wouldn’t use him yet.

Strasburg @ Eovaldi

Arroyo @ Medlen – Logical to think Arroyo blows up here, so watch him throw a two-hitter!

Gorzelanny @ Corbin

Lackey @ Parker – Tough test for Parker but he’s been solid for awhile now.

J. Williams @ Saunders – Williams’ last two outings have been dreadful.

Nicasio @ Kershaw

Gaudin @ O’Sullivan – Great matchup for Gaudin.

Howdy gents. I’m in NL only 4×4 keeper league with no bench. I have to roster Ike Davis this week or drop him. To make space I have to drop either David Freese ($10 keeper next year) or Eric Young Jr. ($5). Should I drop one of those turkeys or just give up on Ike Davis ($15)?

I’m in a dog fight for HR, RBI, and BA and am just ahead of the pack in 2nd place on steals.

What say you?

BP,

I’d dump Davis. You own Freese for a very nice price and Young Jr. is helping you right now in a bunched up steals category. Can Davis make an impact for you this season? Maybe. But maybe not. It’s too much of an unknown. And at $15, it’s not like you’re going to keep him anyway.

In a 12 team Dynasty league, which prospect would you rather have Hultzen or Zimmer? Hultzen is having health problems, but Zimmer is having a tough time being consistent.

Stevo,

I’ll say Zimmer. He’s been dominant over his last few outings, so maybe he’s hitting his stride now. And Hultzen’s health issues concern me.

Pick two for the rest of the week:

Shields @CLE
Archer vs HOU
Bailey @ ATL
Fister vs TEX

Thanks!

Shields and Bailey. Fister vs. Bailey is close, as both have tough matchups, but Homer’s higher K upside gives him the edge.

Zach

Thanks zach..

Tend to agree, but expecting a big game from archer too

I’d like to pick up Salazar. I’m in desperate need of Ks and Saves. I would have to drop Nova, E. Ramirez or Henderson.

I just traded for grilli and Balfour and have Uehara.

Thoughts?

Yeah, in that case, I’d be OK with you dropping Henderson. I don’t see him closing anytime soon.

Thanks Zach. One more question – Which of my MI should i drop in my 4×4 NL Keeper league? I have to drop one. Jordy Mercer $2, Zack Cozart $10, Derek Dietrich $1. Thanks!

BP,

If you have a decent starting SS alternative for this season, I’d probably just drop Cozart, as his numbers this year have been uninspiring and his price tag is on the high side. If you really need Cozart for this year, I’d lean towards dropping Mercer, as Dietrich’s power ceiling is higher.

Hi guys
Standard 5×5 roto. Can you plse rank these pitchers best to worst for ROS? I need to release a couple, I’m overstocked:
Hefner, Gee, Erasmo Ramirez, Martin Perez, Iwakuma, CJ Wilson, miguel Gozalez & Gerrit Col.
Thank you!

Jim,

My bottom two would be Gee and Perez. Definitely hold onto Cole, Wilson and Iwakuma. I also like Gonzalez quite a bit.

Zach

Give latos to get zobrist have pedroia Castro Nick Franklin for ss &2 my of is Ajax Fowler Morrison and rajai Davis on bench my sp are price weaver Parker Strausberg doubront leake Griffin Chen and dl is cueto

Sure! It doesn’t look like you have a pressing need for Zobrist but on overall value alone, that’s a no-brainer.
