Padres Royals Spring Baseball

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Porcello @ Dickey – Bad matchup for both.

Sabathia @ Pelfrey

Cole @ Iglesias

Co. Anderson @ Sale – Anderson coming off strong spring but I’ll pass for now.

Kershaw @ Bumgarner – Nice!

Koehler @ J. Ross

Smyly @ M. Wright – Hanging with Smyly.

Fister @ Peralta – Fister could prove to be PoD worthy sooner rather than later.

Velasquez @ Matz – Need to see at least one solid outing from Velasquez before I can confidently pitch him.

Martinez @ Teheran

Milone @ Kennedy – Kennedy deserves consideration in deeper leagues but in 12-teamers, I’d play it safe for the time being.

Hendricks @ Greinke – Not a great matchup for Hendricks but I’ll go for it.

Pomeranz @ J. De La Rosa – I’m high on Pomeranz in general but not at Coors.

Hamels @ Richards

R. Hill @ Karns – Not trusting Hill right now. Karns offers sneaky upside this year.

SUNDAY

S. Wright @ Estrada – Taking a wait and see approach with Estrada.

Hellickson @ Colon – Great matchup for Bartolo.

Locke @ DeSclafani – DeSclafani is intriguing this year but I don’t like this matchup.

Cosart @ Scherzer

Wainwright @ W. Perez

Odorizzi @ T. Wilson

Tomlin @ Quintana (PPD)

Keuchel @ Nelson – I’m a believer in Nelson this season…just not for this start.

Nolasco @ Volquez

M. Perez @ Weaver – Weaver topping out in the low-80’s with his fastball…no thanks.

Kazmir @ Cueto

Arrieta @ S. Miller

Bassitt @ King Felix

Shields @ Bettis

Tanaka @ Verlander (PPD)

MONDAY

Niese @ Verlander – Niese strictly a deep mixed/NL-only option for this start.

Gallardo @ Price

Cashner @ Nola

Quintana @ Gibson – Gibson a viable two-start pitcher choice in deeper leagues for next week, but I’m reserving him in daily transaction formats.

Jungmann @ Wacha

B. Norris @ Scherzer

Cosart @ Matz

Finnegan @ Lester – I like Finnegan a lot this year but this matchup is too tough.

Young @ McHugh – Not giving up on McHugh.

Tropeano @ Gray

Lewis @ Iwakuma
