Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, August 27

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Los Angeles Angels

ZACH’S PICKS

Pettitte @ Happ – Not much upside with Pettitte here in hitter-friendly park versus quality lineup.

Milone @ Verlander – Terrible matchup for Milone, and he’s struggled on the road this year (5.00 ERA).

W. Chen @ Doubront – Doubront has been solid for awhile now.

Wilson @ R. Hernandez – Wilson is 4-0 with a 3.13 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break.

Clemens (not that one) @ Quintana - Great matchup for Quintana, who has allowed 3 ER or less in nine of his last ten starts.

Shields @ Correia

Holland @ Iwakuma – Iwakuma seems to be back on track.

Eovaldi @ Ohlendorf – Eovaldi a toss-up but that horrific outing a couple starts ago has scared me off.

Lohse @ Locke – Avoid Locke until further notice.

Salazar @ A. Wood – Salazar a risky play though versus top-notch offense.

Kendrick @ Niese

Latos @ Kelly – Kelly has been in a nice groove but there’s limited K upside and this matchup scares me.

Petit @ Bettis

Kennedy @ Holmberg – Kennedy showing signs of improvement but I still need to see more consistency.

T. Wood @ Kershaw

I’m in an NL only 5X5 roto league and in need of SB would it be smart to add Reymond Fuentes? If so, who do I drop Marisnick or Ludwick

Rob,

Yeah, I’d definitely make that move. Fuentes is pretty much assured everyday ABs from here on out as long as he doesn’t completely tank and he’ll bring plenty of speed to the table. Assuming this is a non-keeper, I’d drop Marisnick, who has struggled mightily since getting called up. Ludwick is more of a known commodity. If it’s a long-term keeper, however, I’d lean towards dropping Ludwick.
