Pitch or Ditch for Thursday, May 22

MLB: Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers

CORY’S PICKS

Darvish @ Ray – I like Ray but not the matchup

Buehrle @ Lester – this won’t last forever but have to roll with Buehrle for now

Gray @ Cobb – tough return for Cobb, but he’s good enough

Tomlin @ W. Chen

Phelps @ Sale – tough return for Sale, but he’s a must-start

Cosart @ Elias

Hamels @ Alvarez

Hudson @ De La Rosa – scary for Hudson coming off injury, but he’s been lights-out so far

Treinen @ Volquez

Garza @ Harang – tough to trust Garza right now

Greinke @ Niese

Miley @ Lynn

Arrieta @ Stults

***ZACH SAYS “I’ll continue to take the conservative approach with Buehrle and bench him for particularly tough matchups. Facing the Red Sox at Fenway qualifies as just that. When the regression does come, it’ll be ugly. Elias has faded of late, but I think you have to roll the dice on him vs. the Astros. Agree on rest.”

Now that Cliff Lee is on the DL, which pitcher would be a good replacement for him- Niese, Roark, De La Rosa, Vogelsong or Travis Wood? Should I keep Cliff Lee or replace him with any the above for the rest of the season? Thanks.

Al,

I’d pick up Niese and DL Lee. Definitely don’t drop Lee though!
