Liriano @ Hammel
Sale @ Severino
Finnegan @ Hellickson – Finnegan has been shaky at times, but this is a nice matchup.
Verlander @ Tillman – Verlander still capable of throwing a gem in any given start but I don’t like this matchup. Orioles rank 4th in Majors in OPS at home.
Koehler @ G. Gonzalez
McCullers @ S. Wright – Tough matchup for McCullers in his season debut. I’ll play it safe and sit this one out. Wright a little risky here as well but he’s been excellent all year.
Nolasco @ Tomlin – Tomlin a decent play in deeper formats but there’s not a whole lot of upside here.
Hill @ Odorizzi
Dickey @ M. Perez – Slugfest alert!
Friedrich @ Guerra
Teheran @ Volquez – I rarely have confidence in Volquez. This is an exception.
Harvey @ J. Gray – Continue to monitor Gray but this isn’t the spot to pitch him.
Samardzija @ Miller
Tropeano @ Karns
Wacha @ Stripling
