Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, July 19-21

MLB: Minnesota Twins at New York Yankees

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Simon @ McCarthy

Lewis @ Stroman – Stroman no sure thing but Rangers a mid-pack offense this year.

Kluber @ Ray (Gm 1) – Ray expected to be sent back down after this start.

Salazar @ Scherzer (Gm 2) – Ditto for Salazar but he has slightly better chance of sticking around.

Duffy @ R. De La Rosa – Taking a chance on Rubby versus so-so offense.

Keuchel @ Noesi

Price @ Correia

King Felix @ Richards

W. Chen @ Hammel

Greinke @ Kelly

Garza @ G. Gonzalez

B. Anderson @ Morton – Rockies a mediocre at best offense away from Coors.

Hamels @ TBD (ATL)

Hudson @ Alvarez

T. Wood @ Miley – Miley has struggled at home but he’s hot.

Gee @ T. Ross

SUNDAY

Cueto @ Kuroda

Tepesch @ Buehrle – Buehrle’s been a lot more hittable lately.

Tomlin @ Smyly – Both too risky.

Ventura @ Lester

Cosart @ Danks – Danks worth a try here.

Archer @ Hughes – Hughes 5 ER or more in four of his last five starts.

Young @ Skaggs – Not completely sold on Young but you can’t argue with the results. Skaggs a decent play vs. Mariners club that ranks last in AL in runs scored this month.

Gausman @ Gray

Lincecum @ Hand

Kendrick @ TBD (ATL)

Gallardo @ Fister – Not liking this matchup for fading Gallardo.

Matzek @ Locke – Locke has been outstanding of late and as mentioned above, Rockies can’t hit on the road.

Wheeler @ Despaigne – Nice matchup for both.

Arrieta @ Collmenter – Collmenter a solid play in NL-only leagues though.

Kershaw @ C. Martinez – Martinez still has some kinks to iron out

MONDAY

Mikolas @ Greene – Need to see a little more from Greene before I can fully trust him in a 12-team mixed.

Lackey @ Hutchison

Guthrie @ Sale

House @ K. Johnson

Norris @ Shoemaker

Niese @ Elias – Favorable matchup for Elias but he’s been terrible over his last three starts (10.05 ERA).

Vogelsong @ Lee – Vogelsong has done just enough this year to deserve the nod.

Ryu @ Volquez

Koehler @ Teheran

Latos @ Peralta

Fister @ Morales

Verlander @ Nuno – Not overly confident in Verlander though.

well Beckett is back soon do I keep him or need to drop one of the following 3….Morton/ Miley/ or Archer would be leaning towards Archer?

I’d first try to make a trade to free up a roster spot. If that doesn’t work out, I’d probably lean towards dropping Morton. Tough call though.
