Zimmermann @ Duffey – I don’t like this matchup for Duffey, though I’d consider adding him in deeper formats.
J. Ross @ Garcia
Teheran @ Lackey – Teheran is risky here, but I’m a lot more confident in him after his last outing.
Devenski @ Hahn – Keep an eye on Hahn, but I’ll take a wait and see approach for now.
Cain @ deGrom
Happ @ Archer – Taking a chance on Happ versus weak Rays offense. Can the schedule get a little easier for Archer already? Please?
Latos @ Gausman – The Latos stat correction could very well come here. I’m all in on Gausman.
Simon @ Liriano – Not concerned about Liriano.
Bauer @ Eickhoff – I don’t trust Bauer. Still a believer in Eickhoff.
Chen @ Ch. Anderson – Anderson has struggled of late but this is a favorable matchup (Marlins rank 13th in NL in runs).
Pineda @ Porcello – Passing on Pineda at Fenway.
Shoemaker @ Holland – Holland has been solid.
Rusin @ Greinke
Rea @ Stripling – I’ll give it a shot with Stripling in this matchup.
Ventura @ Miley
Bumgarner @ Syndergaard – Nice!
Stroman @ Odorizzi
Sale @ Jimenez – Ubaldo always risky though.
Iglesias @ Locke
Pelfrey @ Milone
Koehler @ Peralta
Scherzer @ Martinez
Wisler @ Hammel
Salazar @ Velasquez – If you like strikeouts, you might enjoy this one.
Richards @ Hamels
Fister @ Hill – Not an easy matchup for Hill, but the Astros offense leads the Majors in strikeouts.
Bettis @ Miller – Bettis has pitched well overall, but his worst outing of the season came @ARI.
Kennedy @ Walker – I’ll pitch Kennedy, though I’m not super confident in him.
Pomeranz @ Kershaw – I still trust Pomeranz.
Eovaldi @ Price
Hammel @ Cole
Griffin @ Dickey
Foltynewicz @ Colon – Great matchup for Colon.
Cueto @ Finnegan – Finnegan a toss-up here, but I’d lean towards pitching him.
Weaver @ Nelson
Berrios @ Keuchel – Giving Berrios another shot, though benching him here is understandable.
Hellickson @ Wainwright – Beginning to lose patience with Wainwright but this is an ideal matchup.
G. Gonzalez @ Volquez
Karns @ Graveman – Karns needs to improve his control but he is striking out over a batter per inning.
J. Gray @ Shields
