Tanaka @ Estrada – Estrada blanked the Yanks in his last start.
King Felix @ Miley – Miley too inconsistent to trust.
Bassitt @ M. Gonzalez – Bassitt 3 ER or less in each of his seven starts this season.
Arrieta @ Quintana
Shoemaker @ Cueto – Shoemaker’s most recent outing scares me off from this one.
Williams @ Nelson – Nelson pitching well of late and this is a favorable matchup.
Tomlin @ Duffey
Corbin @ Foltynewicz – I’ll give Corbin a shot here.
Verlander @ McHugh – Verlander too risky in this matchup. McHugh a toss-up.
Morton @ Niese – Mets are hot and Morton is not.
Hand @ Lackey – Great matchup for Lackey, who has strung together 11 straight quality starts.
Archer @ Lewis
Cashner @ J. Gray – Gray worth considering in deeper leagues but I need to see a bit more.
Holmberg @ B. Anderson – I’ll give Anderson a mulligan for his last outing.
G. Gonzalez @ Peavy – Maybe Gio has finally turned the corner? Peavy has been impressive since his return.
Severino @ Hutchison – Sitting Severino totally understandable though.
Locke @ Harvey
Graveman @ W. Chen – Chen is quietly enjoying a fine season.
Nuno @ Owens – Taking a wait and see approach with Owens.
R. De La Rosa @ Miller – Favorable matchup for Rubby. Braves rank last in NL in runs scored and OPS since the All-Star break.
Haren @ Sale
Harang @ Jungmann
Carrasco @ Milone
An. Sanchez @ Fiers – This could be 2-1 or 10-9. Don’t ask me why but I’ll take the under.
Nicolino @ C. Martinez
E. Ramirez @ Gallardo – Not an ideal matchup for Ramirez.
J. Ross @ Bumgarner
DeSclafani @ Greinke
Kennedy @ Rusin – Kennedy actually has decent numbers in Coors in recent years but I’m staying away regardless.
Santiago @ Ventura
Gray @ Tillman
Gibson @ Mitchell – Still a believer in Gibson but this matchup is too tough.
Hellickson @ Cole
Salazar @ Barnes
Walker @ Hamels – Walker is back on track.
Nicolino @ Garza – Garza 3 ER or less in each of his last five starts and I like the matchup.
E. Ramirez @ Kazmir
Heston @ Wacha
Rodon @ Heaney – Rodon coming off gem but he’s been too erratic.
W. Perez @ Rea
