Farmer @ Hutchison – Hutchison has been better lately but I still don’t trust him.
Kelly @ deGrom
Lynn @ Vogelsong
Medlen @ Odorizzi – Medlen a must-add in all leagues if still available.
Rusin @ Happ
Koehler @ Zimmermann – Only pitch Koehler at home.
Rea @ Morgan
Sampson @ Garza – Garza struggling lately.
Fiers @ Pelfrey
Richards @ TBD (CLE)
Severino @ Wisler
Iwakuma @ Samardzija – Samardzija continues to tease us, but I’m giving up on him.
Jimenez @ M. Perez
Doubront @ Chacin
Lester @ Latos – Latos is a ditch until further notice.
Simon @ Buehrle – Buehrle is the ultimate chasing wins pitcher. I’ll give it a shot.
Miley @ Syndergaard – Miley too unpredictable and Mets offense is hot.
Duffy @ Karns – I’ve lost a lot of confidence in Karns.
Weaver @ Kluber – Weaver a toss-up but he hasn’t been good on the road and Indians are swinging the bats well of late.
J. De La Rosa @ Morton – Morton is 5-1 with a 2.82 ERA in eight home starts this year.
Hand @ Strasburg
Eovaldi @ Teheran – Eovaldi coming off his best start of the season. Teheran going for his sixth straight quality start, and he’s 7-1 with a 2.55 ERA at home.
Shields @ Williams
Lamb @ Peralta – Decent matchup for Peralta but he’s been way too inconsistent lately.
McCullers @ Big Erv – McCullers a bit risky though.
Montgomery @ Quintana
M. Gonzalez @ Holland – Benching Holland one more time in not so great matchup.
Garcia @ Heston – Heston has been out of whack recently.
Chavez @ Ray
Arrieta @ Al. Wood – Not overly confident in Wood, but I’ll pitch.
Nova @ E. Rodriguez – Taking a break from Nova.
Archer @ W. Chen – Chen has been pitching well enough to trust vs. Rays.
Salazar @ Price
Narveson @ Miller
Eickhoff @ Colon – Eickhoff isn’t 12-team mixed league material just yet. Favorable matchup for Colon, who dominated Phils on Wednesday.
Lorenzen @ Hendricks
Nuno @ Keuchel
G. Gonzalez @ Lackey – Gio a borderline call here, but for PoD purposes I’ll pass.
Ray @ Bettis
Santiago @ Doubront – Santiago has been very shaky lately.
Peavy @ B. Anderson – Peavy a viable option in deeper leagues though as Dodgers offense has been ice cold this month (13th in NL in runs).
Lewis @ T. Ross – Lewis could pitch well here, but I’ll never fully trust him.
