Pitch or Ditch for Wednesday, August 20

MLB: Seattle Mariners at Baltimore Orioles

ZACH’S PICKS

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

I have way to many starters and no bench for hitting but i cannot decide who to drop. My pitchers are sale, latos, archer, duffy, cole, paxton, hellickson and gray. I also have reed mcgee britton and street as closers. Would any of them be worth dropping for brandon phillips, revere, ackley crawford, or vogt

Yeah, I wouldn’t have a problem dropping Hellickson for any of those hitters. The best fit obviously depends on your category/position needs.
