Zimmermann @ Cole

Pomeranz @ Velasquez – Velasquez coming off stellar season debut and has a favorable matchup here (Padres rank 12th in NL in OPS). Pomeranz is a breakout candidate this year and has an even more favorable matchup (Phillies rank 13th in NL in OPS).

Latos @ Big Erv – Not trusting Latos yet.

Salazar @ Archer – If you like strikeouts, don’t miss this one!

Peralta @ Garcia

Cain @ J. De La Rosa – Cain’s first start was encouraging, but I’m not pitching him at Coors.

Teheran @ Strasburg – Hanging with Teheran, though this matchup is far from ideal.

Eovaldi @ Stroman – There’s no way I’m pitching the inconsistent Eovaldi @TOR.

Tillman @ Hamels – Tillman could warrant mixed league attention soon, but this matchup is too tough.

Iglesias @ Hammel

Kennedy @ Fister – Kennedy very tempting here but I’ll play it safe for this matchup.

Ray @ Stripling – I need to see more from both before I can confidently recommend them in 12-team mixed leagues.

Hey Zach –

Currently, I have Arenado at 3B and Rizzo at 1B. I would like to drop Park (MIN) as he only has eligibility at 1B and I already have Han-Ram (OF/1B) to back up 1B. I have no 3B backup. My options are Suarez (CIN, 3B/SS) or White (HOU, 1B/3B) to add coverage. Thoughts on which one for ROS?


Rich D.

Definitely Suarez over Wright.


Archer. Worried about how he ended last year and how he has done this year a bit nervous to start him. What’s your take on him

I’m not concerned quite yet. Maybe in a few weeks, but the best thing to do is sit tight. You’re obviously not going to get back fair value for him in a trade right now.
