Miller @ Hendricks – Hendricks hasn’t been great lately but this is a favorable matchup.
Carrasco @ Tanaka
Nelson @ G. Gonzalez – Sticking with Gio. I know, I’m crazy.
Milone @ W. Chen – Chen is 2-0 with a 2.95 ERA so far in August.
Bumgarner @ Locke
Lewis @ Verlander – Both are toss-ups here. I’ll play it safe.
R. De La Rosa @ Holmberg – Rubby is 4-0 with a 2.54 ERA since the All-Star break.
Cueto @ Owens
Eickhoff @ Flores
B. Anderson @ Fiers – Both are risky here but I’ll go for it.
Colon @ J. Gray – Colon + Coors Field = No thanks. Gray has been impressive but low pitch count limit tempers my enthusiasm.
Smyly @ Bassitt – Need to see a bit more from Smyly. Bassitt is an automatic pitch at home (1.91 ERA).
Price @ Santiago – Tough matchup for Santiago though.
Sale @ King Felix – Nice!
Lackey @ Cashner
