J.A. Happ

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Ventura @ Milone – Ventura pitching well lately. I’ll go for it.

Santiago @ Lewis – Not trusting either in this matchup.

Rusin @ Peavy – Peavy finishing out the season strong.

Estrada @ Archer – Archer limping to the finish line but you still have to pitch him.

Finnegan @ Burnett – Burnett has a 3.68 ERA since his return.

Koehler @ TBD (PHI) – Koehler not a bad deep league option due to favorable matchup.

TBD (NYY) @ Jimenez – Ubaldo purely a chasing wins/K’s play.

Breslow @ Kluber

Hendricks @ Wagner – Hendricks coming off outstanding performance vs. Royals and this matchup is far from scary.

Verlander @ E. Johnson – Johnson a toss-up but he’s been solid through five starts this season.

Lackey @ Miller – Miller fading but Cards will likely rest many of their regulars over the weekend.

Scherzer @ Harvey

McHugh @ Hellickspn – McHugh has been a bit too inconsistent of late.

Nolin @ Elias – Elias worth considering in deeper leagues though.

Erlin @ Greinke

SUNDAY

Smith @ Happ – Happ is 6-3 with a 3.20 ERA since the All-Star break.

Bergman @ Petit – Petit a sneaky play here.

Tropeano @ Hamels – I don’t like the matchup for Tropeano.

Conley @ Buchanan – Conley a fine option, especially if you’re chasing K’s.

Pineda @ Tillman – Yanks might use a B lineup here, which would make Tillman worth a look in deeper leagues.

Lynn @ Wisler

Porcello @ Salazar

Haren @ Lopez – Haren a viable chasing wins/K’s pick.

D. Norris @ Montas

McCullers @ Ray – Ray a borderline call but I’m not in love with this matchup, especially if Astros have something to play for on Sunday.

Cueto @ TBD (MIN)

TBD (OAK) @ Nuno

Shields @ Kershaw

TBD (TOR) @ Moore

Roark @ deGrom – Roark another decent chasing wins option, though he’s the least appealing of the bunch.
