Locke @ Hendricks – Hendricks not a bad deep league option though.
Weaver @ W. Chen – Weaver’s CG SHO was encouraging but I’ll bench him one more time in tough matchup. Chen is on a roll.
C. Anderson @ Billingsley – Favorable matchup for Anderson, who is coming off two straight strong outings.
Bumgarner @ Marquis
Lohse @ Colon – Lohse a bit risky but Mets offense has struggled lately.
Teheran @ Phelps – How can you not pitch Phelps right now?
B. Chen @ Wandy
Pineda @ Young – Young has pitched well this year but I’m staying away here.
Odorizzi @ Hughes – Hughes too unpredictable to trust, even in appealing matchup.
Dickey @ Keuchel – Not a whole lot of upside in pitching Dickey these days.
Greene @ C. Martinez – Greene is still a ditch until further notice. Taking a chance on the scuffling Martinez against a Tigers offense that has been sub-par of late.
Rodon @ Hahn – Rodon needs to cut down on the walks, but he’s legit. Playing it safe with Hahn.
Buchholz @ Happ – Not a Buchholz fan, so I’ll just keep ditching him.
Butler @ Kershaw – Keep an eye on Butler going forward, but this isn’t the spot to pitch him.
Zimmermann @ Despaigne
