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.
