Updated Pitch or Ditch Category Chart (7/22)


Chris Tillman


Verlander @ Archer

Guthrie @ Kluber

Liriano @ Big Erv – Pirates are scoring more lately but Big Erv has been excellent since his return.

Butler @ Lester

Corbin @ King Felix – Mariners are heating up so I’ll pass on Corbin.

Fiers @ Peavy – Fiers’ last start as a Brewer?

Foltynewicz @ Tillman – Tillman has turned it around big-time.

J. Williams @ Dickey – Pickin’ on the Phillies offense.

Quintana @ Porcello – One good start doesn’t make me trust Porcello again.

T. Ross @ Colon – Ross’ last start as a Padre?

Fister @ Koehler – Koehler is on a serious tear.

Tanaka @ Lewis – Risky start for Tanaka vs. Rangers’ lefty mashers, but he’s a must-use when healthy.

Richards @ McCullers

DeSclafani @ Lackey

Chavez @ Kershaw – Chavez may be running out of gas.

***ZACH SAYS “I know Colon has been very inconsistent lately, but he is coming off a dominant performance against a tough Dodgers lineup and has notched three quality starts in his last four outings. Pitching at home in Citi Field against the Padres is about as favorable as it gets from a matchups standpoint. I’d give Bartolo a shot here. Agree on rest.”

Hello Zach,

Would you preffer to have Panik or Devon Travis?
Travis should move up in the lineup after Reyes departure to COL. If you see Travis AVG number are much better than Panik. The question is if he can sustain this AVG numbers after the stint on DL.
Panik on the other side, has lowered his AVG number this past weeks.

It’s close but Panik has been so consistent across the board this season. I’d go with him.


Just got Ryan Zimmerman back from DL need 2 drop 1 outta parra , billy burns or wieters 12 tm h2h pts league thanks

Wieters. Hopefully, you have a viable catcher alternative.


I have Zimmerman coming back in my 10 team h2h… need to drop 1. Should it be Souza, Castellanos, Jesse Chavez or Zimmerman?

Chavez, without question.
