Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, May 3-5
Odorizzi @ Tanaka
Milone @ Lester
W. Chen @ Correia – Pitch Chen in AL-only leagues but these aren’t your older brother’s Twins…5th in Majors in runs.
Iwakuma @ Keuchel – Great matchup for Iwakuma in his return.
Carroll @ Masterson
Smyly @ Duffy – Long layoff for Smyly but he righted the ship his last time out.
Harrison @ Richards – Keep Harrison on your radar but I’d like to see one more good outing, and I’m not in love with this matchup.
Wacha @ Arrieta
Roark @ Burnett – Roark is on a roll.
Dickey @ Liriano – Dickey better of late. I’ll give him a try here.
Vogelsong @ Teheran
Gallardo @ Cueto – Gallardo due for a stat correction at some point though, so I’m a bit nervous about this one.
Maholm @ Turner
Mejia @ Morales
McCarthy @ Kennedy – Nice matchup for McCarthy.
Rienzo @ Kluber – Sticking with Kluber despite inconsistency.
Bedard @ Sabathia – Ditto with CC.
Gray @ Lackey
Verlander @ Vargas – Vargas falling back down to earth?
M. Gonzalez @ Hughes
Maurer @ McHugh – Not sold on McHugh just yet. He’s getting close though.
Darvish @ Skaggs – Matchup makes Skaggs a bit too risky.
Ryu @ Fernandez
Bumgarner @ A. Wood
McGowan @ Volquez
G. Gonzalez @ Hamels
Lohse @ Simon – Gotta ride the red-hot Simon.
Miley @ T. Ross – Losing patience with Miley but how could you sit him here?
Gee @ TBD (COL) – Tough matchup for Gee but hard to bet against him at this point.
Lynn @ Hammel
Gibson @ McAllister – McAllister not a bad option in deeper leagues but two straight mediocre outings have me staying away.
Cosart @ Scherzer
Phelps @ Weaver – Keep an eye on Phelps though.
Young @ Kazmir
Miller @ Harang – Was Harang’s last start the beginning of the end?
Greinke @ Zimmermann
Happ @ Kendrick – Kendrick belongs in PoD discussion but this matchup is too tough.
Petit @ Locke
Niese @ Eovaldi
Quintana @ Samardzija – Quintana 3 ER or less in five of his six starts this year.
Bolsinger @ Garza
Perez @ Lyles – Taking a one-start break from Perez, who is coming off blowup.
Ventura @ Stults
