Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, August 20
Wheeler @ Samardzija – Wheeler working on nine straight quality starts.
Richards @ Buchholz – Clay has pitched well over his last two starts but I still don’t trust the guy.
Feldman @ Pineda – Pineda coming off encouraging return outing.
Porcello @ Odorizzi
W. Chen @ Noesi – Chen a worthy play here.
House @ Nolasco
Martinez @ Eovaldi – Eovaldi risky but I’ll give it a shot at home.
Paxton @ Hamels – Paxton pretty safe to use at this point.
Dickey @ Nelson – I like Nelson but TOR offense with E42 now back scares me. Dickey scares me a bit too but I’ll chance it.
Cahill @ Roark
A. Wood @ Cole – Feel free to ditch Cole for this comeback start if you can afford it.
Cueto @ Lynn
Peavy @ Jackson – Peavy a toss-up but his numbers since joining Giants (3.86 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) are solid.
Duffy @ J. De La Rosa – Duffy a tough call but in 12-team mixed. I still think the risk outweighs the reward.
Stults @ R. Hernandez
