Pitch or Ditch for Tuesday, August 27
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
