Pitch or Ditch for Saturday-Monday, September 20-22
Scherzer @ Shields – Nice!
Stroman @ Capuano – Stroman inconsistent lately but Yankees offense has been terrible for most of the season.
Williams @ Pomeranz – Pomeranz an intriguing very deep mixed/AL-only option.
R. De La Rosa @ Tillman – Rubby has been awful this month (0-2, 7.43 ERA).
House @ May
Young @ Keuchel
Noesi @ Archer
Lewis @ Weaver
Hernandez @ Doubront – Doubront pitching well since trade to Cubs but this isn’t a good matchup.
Cahill @ Butler
Garza @ Volquez
Niese @ Minor – Minor should get back on track here.
Zimmermann @ Cosart – Tough matchup for Cosart but he’s reeled off seven straight quality starts.
Leake @ Wacha – Not overly confident in either but Wacha’s matchup is a lot more favorable.
Petit @ Cashner – If you’re ever going to pitch Petit, this is where you do it.
Hutchison @ Tanaka – Hutchison a toss-up. Let the categories be your guide. If you’ve held onto Tanaka for this long, you might as well throw him out there.
Kelly @ M. Gonzalez – Nice matchup for the underrated Gonzalez.
Danks @ Karns
Porcello @ Guthrie
Kluber @ Milone
Iwakuma @ McHugh – This matchup could be just what the struggling Iwakuma needs.
Tepesch @ Rasmus
Burnett @ Kazmir – A.J. cannot be trusted.
Strasburg @ TBD (MIA)
deGrom @ Big Erv – Let’s just name deGrom the NL ROY right now!
Peralta @ Morton
Haren @ Turner – I’ll give Haren a mulligan for his last start since it was at Coors.
Vogelsong @ Kennedy – No reason to own Vogelsong if you don’t feel comfortable using him here.
Miley @ Bergman – Miley actually pitched well at Coors earlier this year but I’d rather not risk it.
Simon @ Lynn
Duffy @ Carrasco
Chen @ Pineda
Paxton @ Happ
Bassitt @ Lobstein
Tropeano @ Holland
Collmenter @ Nolasco – Collmenter in ten starts since ASB: 3.26 ERA, 0.99 WHIP.
Wilson @ Samardzija – Wilson has been a lot better lately.
Liriano @ Harang – Liriano 2 ER or less in each of his last five starts. Harang always risky but 14 IP, 2 ER, 17 K over his last two starts.
Wainwright @ T. Wood
Peavy @ Haren – Challenging matchup for Peavy but he’s a must-start these days.
Matzek @ Stults – Ideal matchup for Matzek if you’re willing to gamble.
