Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, August 9-11

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at Oakland Athletics

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Kluber @ McCarthy – McCarthy since joining Yankees (5 starts): 4-0, 2.08 ERA.

Scherzer @ Stroman – Tough matchup for Stroman though, as he’s coming off worst outing in awhile.

Lackey @ Jimenez

Hudson @ Shields

Darvish @ Feldman

Buchholz @ Richards

TBD (MIN) @ Samardzija

Noesi @ Paxton – Keep an eye on Paxton but let’s see him shake off the rust first.

Odorizzi @ Jackson

Gee @ Hamels – Gee coming off solid bounce back performance.

Stults @ Liriano – Nice matchup for Liriano.

Greinke @ Fiers

Roark @ Harang – Harang pitching well enough to start here.

TBD (MIA) @ Simon – Simon fading a bit but I’m not ready to jump ship yet.

J. De La Rosa @ Cahill – De La Rosa a decent play in deeper leagues but I just don’t fully trust him.

SUNDAY

Carrasco @ Kuroda

Price @ Buehrle – Regression was inevitable for Buehrle.

Lynn @ Gausman – Three straight quality starts for Gausman and Cards have been a bottom tier offense this year.

Lincecum @ Duffy – Lincecum erratic of late but I’ll stick with him for now.

Martinez @ Keuchel

R. De La Rosa @ Santiago – Taking the safe route here but both are worthy gambles in deeper leagues.

Hughes @ Hammel

Danks @ TBD (SEA)

Hand @ Cueto

Wheeler @ Kendrick – Kendrick pitching decently lately but Mets have roughed him up this year (6.23 ERA).

T. Ross @ Morton

Kershaw @ Nelson – Nelson’s on a roll.

Cobb @ T. Wood

Morales @ Miley – I’m back to not trusting Miley at home. 10 ER outing will do that.

G. Gonzalez @ A. Wood

MONDAY

Capuano @ Norris – Norris an intriguing AL-only option though.

Smyly @ Lewis – Playing it safe with Smyly in tough environment.

Gray @ Ventura

Milone @ Peacock

Hutchison @ King Felix

Niese @ Buchanan

Correia @ Teheran

Verlander @ Locke – Not a believer in Locke.

Miller @ Koehler – Giving Koehler another chance in favorable matchup.

Gallardo @ Arrieta

Lyles @ Hahn – Hahn very impressive this year and Rockies can’t hit on the road.
