Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, July 26-28

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Tampa Bay Rays

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Hutchison @ Greene – I don’t fully trust either.

Norris @ Young – Norris not a bad gamble in deeper leagues though.

McAllister @ Guthrie

Sale @ Gibson – Gibson very erratic of late.

Koehler @ Cosart – Koehler has five quality starts in his last six outings.

Lackey @ Hellickson – Lackey appears back on track. Keep an eye on Hellickson.

Gray @ Tepesch

Verlander @ Shoemaker – Riding it out with Verlander.

Miller @ Arrieta – Not completely giving up on Miller though.

G. Gonzalez @ Cueto

Collmenter @ Lee – Collmenter an intriguing deep mixed/NL-only league option.

Niese @ Peralta – Peralta 14 IP, 1 ER since disaster outing vs. PHI.

Despaigne @ Teheran – All aboard the Despaigne bandwagon!

Locke @ Matzek – Playing it safe with Locke at Coors.

Kershaw @ Vogelsong – Not a great matchup for Vogelsong but he does have a 3.04 ERA at home.

SUNDAY

Happ @ Whitley

Peavy @ Archer – Peavy has a 5.87 ERA on the road and Rays hitting has improved.

Salazar @ B. Chen – Nice matchup for Salazar, who pitched pretty well in his return on Tuesday.

Carroll @ Pino

Turner @ McHugh – McHugh is fading.

Porcello @ Santiago – Santiago worth monitoring going forward but this matchup is too tough.

M. Gonzalez @ Elias – Gonzalez has been dominant over his last three starts (1.90 ERA, 0.93 WHIP).

Kazmir @ Mikolas

Fister @ Latos

Nuno @ R. Hernandez

deGrom @ Nelson – Nelson worth a shot here.

Wainwright @ Hendricks

Volquez @ Morales

Stults @ Minor

Ryu @ Petit

MONDAY

Dickey @ Buchholz – Could be 2-1 or 10-9. No thanks.

Lohse @ Odorizzi – Tough matchup for Odorizzi but he’s earned it.

Phelps @ Darvish – I’m a fan of Phelps, but not here.

Chavez @ Oberholtzer – Chavez hasn’t been as sharp lately, but the K’s are still there.

Lane @ Big Erv

C. Anderson @ Bailey – Homer has been a lot better lately.

Burnett @ Colon

Zimmermann @ Eovaldi – I’m quickly losing confidence in Eovaldi.

Flande @ Wada

Worley @ Bumgarner – Worley a borderline call but in a 12-team mixed, I’ll take the conservative route.
