Cueto @ Tillman
Lynn @ DeSclafani
Estrada @ Pineda (Gm 1) – Going for it with both but ditching both is understandable as well. Depends on your risk tolerance and league standings.
Stroman @ Nova (Gm 2) – Playing it safe with Stroman in tough debut matchup.
Porcello @ Moore – Porcello always risky but he’s pitching well of late and Rays are the lowest scoring team in the AL.
Haren @ Eickhoff – Favorable matchup for Haren.
Davies @ Locke
Milone @ Quintana – Milone is 3-0 with a 0.87 ERA in three starts vs. White Sox this season.
Wolf @ Bauer – Bauer a toss-up but Tigers have struggled offensively since All-Star break (12th in AL in runs).
Syndergaard @ W. Perez
Roark @ Fernandez
Nolin @ Gallardo – Gallardo too inconsistent these days to trust.
Bolsinger @ R. De La Rosa – Rubby is 0-2 with a 9.19 ERA in three starts vs. Dodgers this season.
McCullers @ Santiago – Need to see at least one more solid outing from Santiago before I can start him again.
Kennedy @ Bumgarner
Flande @ Elias
Dickey @ Tanaka
Boyd @ Carrasco
Wacha @ Iglesias – Sticking with Iglesias.
Scherzer @ Hand
Hill @ Smyly
Niese @ Weber – Niese has been very shaky recently but this is a very favorable matchup.
TBD (CHC) @ Harang
Jungmann @ Liriano – I was never sold on Jungmann.
Gibson @ Sale – Gibson is 2-0 with a 1.64 ERA in three starts vs. White Sox this season.
Doubront @ C. Gonzalez
Fiers @ Heaney
Rea @ Leake – Leake coming off rough outing but I’ll take a chance on him here.
Kendrick @ Paxton – Taking the conservative route with Paxton in his first start since late-May. Keep a close eye on him though.
Greinke @ Corbin
Ventura @ W. Chen – Not loving this matchup for either.
E. Rodriguez @ Gausman – Four straight starts of 2 ER or less for Rodriguez.
Zimmermann @ Nola
Volquez @ Carrasco
Nicolino @ Verrett – Verrett not a bad option in deeper leagues though.
Sabathia @ E. Ramirez
Kazmir @ Hamels
S. Gray @ Danks – Not much of a believer in Danks.
Lobstein @ Duffey
Shields @ Hellickson
Richards @ Walker – Walker continues to drive us crazy with his inconsistency.
