ZACH’S PICKS

Garza @ Lorenzen – Tough to trust Garza right now.

Smyly @ Pineda – Smyly was solid in pitch count limited debut.

Greene @ Hughes – Great opportunity for Greene to bounce back, but I wouldn’t blame you for ditching. Hughes a risky play as well.

Samardzija @ Jimenez

Keuchel @ Cashner

Dickey @ Porcello – Rough matchup for both.

Ventura @ Salazar

Zimmermann @ Al. Wood

Colon @ Latos – Not sold on Latos just yet.

Harang @ C. Martinez – Tough to bench Harang right now.

King Felix @ Wandy

G. Cole @ Hendricks – Keep an eye on Hendricks though.

Lyles @ Collmenter – I’ll go with Collmenter at home.

Shoemaker @ Hahn – Consistency has been lacking for Shoemaker. Chavez might fill in for Hahn. I’ll pass on both A’s.

Vogelsong @ Greinke

Hey Zach, thanks for your comments. Would you drop Bailey for Santiago? Currently my DLs are full with Verlander, Puig, and Yelich. Could also just stick it out until Puig comes back and switch them out. Pitching is doing okay with Sale, Cole, An Sanchez, Nelson, and Greene.

Yes, go ahead and drop Bailey if you don’t have an open DL spot. He’s likely headed for Tommy John surgery.

Zach, would you trade Mike Trout for Adam Jones and Max Scherzer?

I never like to give up the best player in the deal, let alone the best overall player in fantasy. But if you are going to trade Trout, this is the kind of return that you should be asking for. Sure, go ahead and make that trade.

Zach

Never mind. Obviously. Sal Perez for Drew Smyly?

Hang onto Perez unless you have a comparable catcher to replace him.

Zach

Roto league with OBP instead of average.

Zach,

Is it too early to start panicking about Jared Weaver and Julio Teheran And also Ian Kennedy?

Would you hold onto Otovino or drop him to pick up Axford?

The rest of my rotation is Greinke, Shields, S.Miller

Closers are Holland and Jansen both of whom are on the DL.

Thank you.

Yes, too early, though I’m the least confident in Weaver. He’s approaching drop-worthy status in a 12-team mixed.

I’d try to hold onto both Rockies relievers if possible, but it sounds like Ottavino could be out for awhile, so I’m not at all opposed to making that move.

Zach

Hey Zach, with Jed Lowrie going to the dl, is it time for Carlos Correa? Also, it’s been five days, is it time to cut ties on Choo?

I doubt we see Correa in the Majors until at least later this season. He hasn’t even been promoted to Triple-A yet. I’d sit tight with Choo for now.
