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
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.
