Moore @ Eovaldi
Doyle @ Price
Peralta @ Lamb – Peralta still too inconsistent to trust in 12-team mixed leagues.
Ray @ Arrieta – Risk outweighs the reward with Ray.
Asher @ Miley – Miley worth considering in deep mixed/AL-only leagues though.
Morton @ Garcia – Morton’s road ERA this season is 5.62.
Miller @ G. Gonzalez – Tasty matchup for Gio despite his inconsistency.
Salazar @ Simon
Quintana @ Duffy
Big Erv @ McCullers – Erv has been a major headache for his owners this year.
Colon @ Hand – I’m expecting another strong outing from Colon.
Peavy @ Bettis
Al. Wood @ T. Ross
King Felix @ Chavez – I’ll give Chavez a try here (2.85 ERA at home).
Holland @ Weaver – I think it’s safe to say that Holland is back.
Archer @ Nova – Nova a toss-up. Let the standings make the decision for you.
Tillman @ Buehrle – Buehrle has pitched well against O’s this year (3-0, 3.24 ERA in four starts).
TBD (CLE) @ Verlander – Verlander 2 ER or less in seven of his last eight starts.
Nelson @ Lorenzen – Nelson has struggled at times versus Reds this season but I’ll give it a go regardless.
Matz @ Narveson
Eickhoff @ E. Rodriguez – Eickhoff has been impressive but I’m not quite ready to pitch him at Fenway. Rodriguez a viable option in deeper leagues.
Banuelos @ J. Ross
E. Johnson @ Cueto
Duffey @ Keuchel
R. De La Rosa @ Hendricks – Rubby is 6-1 with a 3.32 ERA in nine starts since the All-Star break.
Lewis @ Santiago – I’m having a tough time trusting either of these guys.
Iwakuma @ Doubront
Greinke @ Cashner
Bumgarner @ Flande
Cole @ Lackey
W. Chen @ Pineda – Chen coming off shaky outing, so I’ll play it safe for this matchup.
Niese @ Scherzer – Niese struggling and Nats bats remain dangerous.
Smyly @ Wolf – Smyly was outstanding in his last start but he has yet to post back-to-back quality starts since returning from the DL.
Locke @ DeSclafani
Davies @ Nicolino – Four straight quality starts for Nicolino. I’ll give him a shot here.
Buehrle @ Porcello
Bauer @ Sale
Haren @ Lynn – I’ll pitch Haren versus mid-tier at best Cardinals lineup.
Fiers @ Doubront
Kendrick @ Kennedy – Kennedy is a PoD grad again.
Leake @ Corbin – The matchup isn’t great for Leake but I’ll go ahead and pitch him anyway.
Gallardo @ Elias – Gallardo is too risky right now.
W. Perez @ Harang – This has slugfest written all over it.
Milone @ Ventura – Ventura 2 ER or less in each of his last five starts.
Greinke @ Tropeano
