ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Harang @ Zimmermann – Harang an acceptable option in deeper leagues but I’ll play it safe in this matchup.

Al. Wood @ Dickey – Dickey off to a strong start.

Sale @ An. Sanchez

Salazar @ Hughes – Appealing matchup for Salazar in his first start of the season.

Bailey @ C. Martinez – Bailey could graduate to automatic start status soon but let me see one solid performance first.

Ross @ Hendricks – Hendricks worth monitoring but first start was ugly, despite it being at Coors.

Tillman @ Buchholz – Staying away from Clay.

Lohse @ Worley – Ditch Lohse until further notice.

Hahn @ Ventura

Wilson @ Keuchel

Latos @ deGrom – Impossible to trust Latos right now.

Tanaka @ Odorizzi

R. De La Rosa @ Heston – Heston very impressive so far.

Lewis @ King Felix

Lyles @ Greinke – Lyles deserves consideration in deep mixed/NL-only leagues but I’m not too thrilled about this matchup.

SUNDAY

S. Miller @ D. Norris

Quintana @ Greene – Greene a prime sell-high candidate though.

Koehler @ Harvey – Koehler pitching well and boasts strong career numbers vs. Mets.

Pineda @ Andriese

W. Chen @ Porcello – I like Chen but this is not the place to use him.

Buchanan @ Strasburg

Garza @ Cole – The results just haven’t been there for Garza thus far.

Kazmir @ Duffy – Haven’t given up on Duffy but very difficult to trust him right now.

House @ May

Richards @ Feldman – I’ll chance it with Richards if he does in fact make this start.

Cashner @ Lester – I still think Cashner is overrated though.

Hellickson @ Hudson

Detwiler @ Paxton

Butler @ McCarthy – Butler has emerged onto the PoD radar but this is not a very good matchup.

Leake @ Wainwright – Leake disappointing so far, but I’ll give him another chance.

MONDAY

W. Chen @ Masterson

Sabathia @ Simon – The numbers say to pitch Simon, but he scares me.

Arrieta @ Burnett – 15-to-3 K/BB ratio for Burnett.

DeSclafani @ Peralta – How can you not pitch DeSclafani?

Bauer @ Danks

Gibson @ Volquez – I’ll never fully trust Volquez.

Despaigne @ J. De La Rosa – Keep an eye on Despaigne but too risky to pitch him at Coors.

Graveman @ Shoemaker – Graveman bounced back somewhat in his last start but I’m still wary of him.

Wojciechowski @ Iwakuma
