ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

N. Martinez @ Sabathia – Encouraged by Sabathia’s recent outings but this isn’t a great spot to use him.

Paxton @ Buehrle – Taking a chance on Paxton despite scary matchup.

DeSclafani @ Kluber – DeSclafani has been shaky lately. I’ll sit this one out.

Hamels @ Strasburg – Ultra-favorable matchup for the slumping Strasburg.

Harvey @ Burnett

McCullers @ Lobstein – Keep an eye on McCullers though.

May @ Sale

Fiers @ Miller – Fiers coming off back-to-back strong outings.

Graveman @ Karns

Wilson @ S. Wright

Lackey @ Duffy

N. Wright @ Haren

Kennedy @ Bolsinger – Sticking with Kennedy.

Arrieta @ R. De La Rosa

SUNDAY

Cueto @ Bauer

Walker @ Ar. Sanchez – Bench but don’t cut Walker in deeper mixed leagues.

R. Hernandez @ An. Sanchez – Not concerned about Anibal.

M. Gonzalez @ Koehler – Gonzalez a toss-up but I do like this matchup.

Gray @ E. Ramirez

Santiago @ Miley – Tough challenge for Santiago but he’s been outstanding lately. Miley worth considering but he’s been a lot better on the road than at home.

Nelson @ Foltynewicz

Harang @ G. Gonzalez – Hard to sit Harang right now. Golden opportunity for Gio to get back on track.

Gallardo @ Capuano

MONDAY

Keuchel @ W. Chen – Chen very quietly having an outstanding season.

Lincecum @ Lohse – Tiny Tim still scares me but you have to respect the results.

Kelly @ Nolasco

Roark @ Wada

Elias @ Odorizzi – Elias 3 ER or less in each of his first five starts this season.
