ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Hughes @ Roark – Hughes has been pitching pretty well but I don’t like this matchup. Not buying into Roark just yet.

Snell @ Tanaka – Playing it safe with Snell in his MLB debut. Let’s see how he does.

Bassitt @ Happ

Kluber @ An. Sanchez

Lewis @ Rodon – Giving Rodon another chance following meltdown on Monday.

Buchholz @ Fiers – Both scare me here.

Lackey @ Straily

Matz @ Chacin

Morton @ Ch. Anderson – Morton a viable deep mixed/NL-only league option though. Great matchup for Anderson, as Phillies rank last in Majors in both runs scored and batting average.

Worley @ Medlen – Medlen has been solid.

Maeda @ Chatwood

Nicasio @ R. De La Rosa – Passing on Nicasio in far from ideal matchup.

Wacha @ TBD (SD)

Fernandez @ Peavy

King Felix @ Santiago – Mariners hoping Felix can make this start after getting pushed back a day due to illness. Really liking what I’m seeing from Santiago.

SUNDAY

Smyly @ Pineda

Surkamp @ Hutchison

Hammel @ Simon

Carrasco @ Greene

Big Erv @ Strasburg – Challenging matchup for Erv but I’ll take a chance.

deGrom @ TBD (ATL)

Eickhoff @ Peralta

Holland @ Latos – I’m finally ready to start both. White Sox offense has struggled so far (14th in AL in runs and 15th in batting average). Latos is pitching extremely well.

M. Wright @ Ventura

Miley @ Shoemaker – Shoemaker a toss-up, though in a 12-team mixed league, I’d lean towards sitting him.

Conley @ Cain – I’m still bullish on Conley. Cain? Not so much.

Wood @ Lyles

Liriano @ Ray

Leake @ Rea – Leake has been disappointing but I love this matchup.

Owens @ Feldman

MONDAY

M. Gonzalez @ Stroman

Gausman @ Archer – Gausman worth adding in deeper mixed leagues but I wouldn’t start him yet. Sticking with Archer, though I’m starting to get concerned.

Porcello @ Teheran – I really like Porcello here. Teheran a borderline call but I’ll say ditch in 12-team mixed leagues.

Iglesias @ Syndergaard

Graveman @ Zimmermann

Eovaldi @ Ramos

Salazar @ Milone

Locke @ Bettis

Garcia @ Greinke

Kennedy @ Richards – Gotta go with Kennedy.

Fister @ Walker – Walker has arrived!

Chen @ Stripling – Nice matchup for Stripling.

Pomeranz @ Bumgarner
