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.
King Felix @ Sabathia
Archer @ Estrada – Going for it with Estrada.

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.

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.
