ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Iwakuma @ Pineda – Iwakuma’s last start encouraging, but I’ll sit this one out in tough matchup.

E. Ramirez @ Dickey

Guthrie @ Quintana – Quintana going for his 10th straight quality start.

Kershaw @ Fister – Taking a chance on Fister. I wouldn’t blame you if you decide against doing so.

Koehler @ Billingsley – Koehler is tempting here but he’s strictly a home play.

Tillman @ Price

Liriano @ Nelson – Whenever I say pitch on Nelson, he implodes. So I’ll pass.

Lester @ Banuelos – Need to see more from Banuelos.

Kluber @ DeSclafani

Lewis @ Feldman

Colon @ Lackey – Colon’s worst outing of the season happened to come against the Cardinals. No thanks.

Peavy @ C. Anderson – Anderson too unreliable to trust.

Bettis @ T. Ross – Bettis an intriguing option in deeper leagues though for this matchup.

Porcello @ Richards

Hughes @ Kazmir – Still having a tough time trusting Hughes.

SUNDAY

King Felix @ Sabathia

Archer @ Estrada – Going for it with Estrada.

M. Gonzalez @ Verlander – Beginning to buy into Verlander but this matchup is too tough.

Carrasco @ Cueto

Greinke @ Scherzer

Haren @ Hamels

Duffy @ Sale

Locke @ Jungmann – Gotta go with Jungmann while he’s hot.

Gallardo @ Keuchel

Niese @ Cooney – Niese was terrible vs. Cards earlier this year but he’s strung together seven straight quality starts.

Milone @ Chavez – Chavez has been shaky lately. I’ll play it safe.

Butler @ Cashner

Bumgarner @ Corbin – Give Corbin a bit more time to work off the rust.

Arrieta @ Miller

E. Rodriguez @ Santiago – Rodriguez seems to be righting the ship, but I’m not a big fan of this matchup.
