12-team mixed leagues
Brett Anderson (@ATL, @NYM)
Anderson might not be available in your 12-team mixed league, but if he is on the waiver wire, you need to grab him immediately. If you already own him, next week is an ideal time to start him. Since the beginning of May, the 27-year-old southpaw has been extremely consistent, allowing more than three runs just once across 14 starts. Anderson sports a 2.92 ERA in eight road starts this season and the Braves and Mets both rank in the bottom third of the Majors in runs scored.
Deeper mixed leagues
Rubby De La Rosa (vs. MIA, vs. MIL)
De La Rosa has not been sharp of late, which is why I’d only consider him in deeper leagues. Prior to his last two outings, however, he had allowed two runs or fewer in four straight starts. While his inconsistency makes him a risky play, the 26-year-old righty does have the benefit of facing a sub-par Marlins lineup followed by a Brewers offense that has been average at best so far this season.
