ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

King Felix @ Sabathia

Weaver @ Nolasco – Weaver very effective in his season debut but I’m still skeptical.

Finnegan @ Wainwright – Need to see one more strong outing from Finnegan before I can feel comfortable starting him in 12-team mixed leagues.

Bergman @ Arrieta

Young @ Bassitt

Estrada @ Price – There’s some risk with Estrada but he’s fresh off a gem versus these very same Red Sox.

Harvey @ Tomlin

Danks @ E. Ramirez – Ramirez a viable play in deeper formats though.

Jungmann @ Niese – Niese a worthy pitch versus sub-par Brewers lineup.

Scherzer @ Nola

Norris @ Koehler – Favorable home matchup for Koehler as Braves rank next to last in NL in runs, AVG and OPS.

Verlander @ McHugh – Sitting Verlander here in tough matchup. Now watch him throw a shutout!

Gallardo @ Lewis

Miller @ Cashner – Pitching Cashner at home, though he’s testing my patience.

Cueto @ Kazmir

SUNDAY

Iwakuma @ Tanaka

Chacin @ Cosart

Quintana @ Moore – Moore has earned this.

Matz @ Kluber – Not concerned about Matz quite yet.

Davies @ Nicasio – Not a believer in Nicasio.

Ar. Sanchez @ S. Wright – Sanchez has been great so far but this is a dangerous matchup, so if you choose to sit him in a 12-team mixed league, that’s fine too.

G. Gonzalez @ Morton

An. Sanchez @ Fiers – Tough matchup for Anibal but he’s been solid.

Tropeano @ Gibson – Tropeano was impressive in his season debut and the Twins aren’t hitting at all so far (last in MLB in runs).

Moscot @ Wacha

Chatwood @ Lester

M. Wright @ Holland – Holland worth monitoring but this matchup is too scary.

Medlen @ Gray – Medlen a decent play in deeper leagues for this one but his wildness is a concern.

Corbin @ Erlin

Samardzija @ Maeda

MONDAY

Happ @ Buchholz – This game has slugfest written all over it.

Syndergaard @ Eickhoff

Lyles @ Straily

Roark @ Fernandez – I still don’t trust Roark.

Lackey @ Leake – I’ve lost a lot of confidence in Leake.

Santiago @ Rodon – Santiago worth a try here.

Ch. Anderson @ Hughes – PoD delight!

Bradley @ Peavy

I’m taking Weaver. Right now, I’d throw my 3 yr old against the Twins. I’ll continue to ride that train until the Twins make me stop.
