Buehrle @ Young
Simon @ Hughes – Hughes pitching a lot better of late but I still don’t trust him against the Tigers.
Sale @ Lester
Corbin @ Harvey – Corbin was good enough in his season debut to trust in a favorable matchup like this one.
Wisler @ J. De La Rosa
DeSclafani @ Latos – Taking a chance on Latos, though I understand if you’re hesitant to do so.
Keuchel @ Odorizzi – Less than favorable matchup for Odorizzi in his return, so I’ll play it safe.
Bassitt @ Carrasco – Sticking with Carrasco.
Zimmermann @ M. Gonzalez – Tough opponent for Gonzalez but he’s 3-1 with a 3.25 ERA in seven home starts this season.
Nova @ E. Rodriguez – Nova strictly a deep mixed/AL-only league option for this one.
Lackey @ Burnett
Shields @ Lewis
Buchanan @ Vogelsong – Vogelsong worth considering in NL-only leagues though for this matchup.
Wilson @ Iwakuma – Iwakuma still shaking off the rust, so I’ll sit this one out.
Jungmann @ TBD (LAD) – Jungmann has been a pleasant surprise, but this matchup is too tough for mixed league purposes.
Gray @ Kluber
R. De La Rosa @ Niese – Nice matchup for Rubby while Niese is working on six straight quality starts.
Cueto @ Haren
McCullers @ Moore – Not trusting Moore just yet.
Eovaldi @ Miley – Both have pitched well lately but both have difficult matchups.
Fister @ W. Chen – Take a look at Chen’s stats and you’ll see why I’m pitching him, even vs. Nats.
Doubront @ Volquez
Greene @ Gibson – Gibson a very tough call vs. Tigers but in a 12-team mixed, I’d lean towards ditching.
Quintana @ Arrieta
T. Ross @ Gallardo – Ross a risky play here, but the K upside wins me over.
Billingsley @ Heston – Excellent matchup for Heston.
Heaney @ Walker – Get used to these names going forward!
Lohse @ B. Anderson
Banuelos @ Bettis
Cooney @ Liriano
