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
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
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
