ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Eovaldi @ Miley – Staying away from this one.

Danks @ Nolasco

Liriano @ Lackey

Fiers @ Arrieta – Still a believer in Fiers though.

Santiago @ Hudson – Walks remain an issue for Santiago, but the overall results have been impressive.

Ar. Sanchez @ Kluber – Sanchez could be moved back to bullpen sooner rather than later.

Hamels @ Haren

Archer @ M. Gonzalez – Gonzalez a borderline call but Rays offense isn’t too scary.

Price @ Volquez – This could be where we see the stat correction for Volquez.

Marquis @ Stults

Walker @ McHugh – Walker seems to be back on track but I’ll sit him one more time to be sure.

G. Gonzalez @ Niese – Gio a nice buy-low target.

Pomeranz @ N. Martinez – Challenging matchup for Martinez but too tough to sit him right now.

J. De La Rosa @ Morrow

Hellickson @ Baker

SUNDAY

Hutchison @ Bauer – My confidence level in Hutchison is very low right now. Bauer a risky play here but I’ll go for it.

Fister @ Gee – 14 2/3 IP, 3 ER by Gee over his last two starts.

O’Sullivan @ Cosart – Cosart pitching well and Phils are the lowest-scoring offense in the Majors so far.

Karns @ W. Chen – Chen, coming off dominant performance vs. Red Sox, now gets much easier matchup.

Cueto @ Teheran

An. Sanchez @ Vargas

Noesi @ Pelfrey

Happ @ R. Hernandez – Rolling the dice on Happ.

Worley @ Wacha

Nelson @ Hammel – Giving Nelson a mulligan for his last outing.

Gray @ Gallardo

Weaver @ Lincecum – This could be 2-1 or 10-9. I’d rather not chance it.

C. Anderson @ B. Anderson – Chase was shaky last time out and the matchup isn’t ideal. Brett has been mediocre of late.

Matzek @ Shields

Warren @ Kelly

MONDAY

Phelps @ Zimmermann – Phelps a decent option in deeper leagues though.

Whitley @ Dickey

Odorizzi @ Buchholz – You just never know which Buchholz you’re going to get from one start to the next.

Harang @ Al. Wood – Harang’s last start versus Braves: 8 IP, 0 ER.

Kershaw @ Lohse – Lohse a little better lately but staying away here.

T. Wood @ C. Martinez

Hahn @ Hughes – Hahn putting up solid numbers despite not pitching deep into games. Hughes a bit risky, so feel free to ditch in shallower formats.

Detwiler @ Keuchel

Collmenter @ Matzek

King Felix @ Shoemaker – Shoemaker very inconsistent so far and chances are he won’t get a lot of run support here.

Ross @ Bumgarner

Gentlemen,

Team is hurting with injuries: Rendon, Zobrist, Lucroy. Im currently without SS, I got offered Bogaerts for Cashner or Odorizzi.
Rest of Rotation: Kazmir, Kluber, Smyly, Salazar, and Bauer.

Thoughts? Preference?
Thanks as always,
Josh

I’d try to do better than Bogaerts for either of those SP’s.

Zach
