Burnett @ Simon
Lester @ Colon – Lester hasn’t been good this year, but it’s the Mets.
Carrasco @ Colome
Heston @ Haren – Have to pitch Heston vs. Stanton-less Marlins.
Fister @ Wisler – Have to pitch Fister vs. Freeman-less Braves.
Volquez @ Velasquez – Velasquez still risky but his K upside is enticing.
Quintana @ Lackey
B. Anderson @ Ray – Not trusting Ray vs. Dodgers’ thump.
***ZACH SAYS “I’d pitch Haren. The matchup isn’t great, but prior to his last start, which was far from terrible, he had allowed 3 ER or less in each of his previous seven outings. He also pitched very well against the Giants earlier this season (7 IP, 2 ER). Agree on rest.”
