Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, June 14-16
Duffy @ Noesi – Not giving up on Duffy but need to see a little more consistency.
Dickey @ Norris – Not a good matchup for the erratic Dickey.
House @ Peavy – Peavy just one quality start over his last six outings.
Deduno @ An. Sanchez
Archer @ Cosart – Archer’s on a roll. Cosart a worthy gamble with Rays offense ranking dead last in AL in runs scored.
Kuroda @ Kazmir
Saunders @ E. Ramirez
Jackson @ Buchanan
Bergman @ Vogelsong – Vogelsongcoming off worst outing in awhile but Rockies are a mediocre offense away from Coors.
TBD (SD) @ Wheeler – Wheeler struggling but this is an ultra-favorable matchup.
Morton @ Wolf – Morton 3 ER or less in eight of his last nine starts.
Cingrani @ Gallardo – Both are a bit risky though.
Richards @ Floyd – Floyd coming back down to earth and this matchup is no cakewalk.
Strasburg @ Miller – Shelby coming off CG SHO against tough Blue Jays lineup.
Collmenter @ Haren – Fading Haren worries me a little though.
Nolasco @ Porcello – Porcello no sure thing though as Twins actually rank 2nd in AL in both runs scored and batting average in the month of June.
Happ @ Tillman – Tillman still not trustworthy in tougher matchups.
Kluber @ Workman – Keep an eye on Workman but Indians are the highest scoring team in the Majors in the month of June.
Shields @ Rienzo
Price @ Peacock – Peacock continues to get it done.
Nuno @ Chavez
Martinez @ Iwakuma
Kennedy @ Matsuzaka – Dice-K an intriguing option in deep mixed/NL-only leagues.
TBD (PIT) @ Alvarez
T. Wood @ Burnett – Not jumping ship on Burnett yet.
Leake @ Estrada – Leake’s last two starts have been disturbing. Sticking with Estrada one more time, though benching him is understandable if you want to play it safe.
Fister @ J. Garcia – Not super confident in Garcia but he’s been very impressive overall.
Nicasio @ Bumgarner
Arroyo @ Beckett
Santiago @ Minor – Santiago could become a mixed league factor soon.
Weaver @ Bauer – Bauer no sure thing but I’ll chance it.
Vargas @ Verlander – One more bad start from Verlander and he’ll be a ditch.
Correia @ R. De La Rosa
W. Chen @ Odorizzi – Chen worth using vs. offensively challenged Rays.
Lewis @ Pomeranz – Not completely sold on Pomeranz but hard to argue with the results.
T. Ross @ Young – Young pitching well enough to earn the nod here in favorable matchup.
Hamels @ Teheran
Hammel @ Koehler – Koehler is well into the pumpkin transformation process.
deGrom @ Martinez – deGrom fading lately.
Peralta @ McCarthy
Matzek @ Ryu
