Lester @ Nicasio – Tough matchup for Nicasio. I’ll play it safe.
Peavy @ Straily
Chacin @ Matz – I’m not comfortable pitching Chacin here.
Santiago @ Davies – Favorable enough matchup for Santiago.
Strasburg @ Medlen – I need to see more from Medlen, and this is a very challenging matchup.
King Felix @ Manaea – Taking the conservative route with Manaea for now.
Chatwood @ Vargas – Both are intriguing options in deeper formats though.
An. Sanchez @ Kluber – Anibal got roughed up by Cleveland two starts ago. I’ll sit this one out.
Sabathia @ T. Wilson
Lewis @ Ar. Sanchez – Sanchez 1 ER or less in four of his first five starts this season.
R. De La Rosa @ Fernandez – Favorable matchup for De La Rosa, who is pitching extremely well of late.
Wood @ Smyly – Wood is hard to trust.
Buchholz @ Rodon – Buchholz has been terrible for the most part.
Hughes @ Fiers – Both are a little risky, but I’m willing to take the risk.
Morgan @ Leake – Leake has been very disappointing so far but he’s worth a shot here (Phillies rank 14th in the NL in runs and 13th in OPS).
