McHugh @ Buchholz – Bad matchup for both.
Quintana @ Nova
Nicolino @ Roark (Gm 1) – Nicolino tempting but I’ll play it safe here. Gotta go with Roark.
Fernandez @ A.J. Cole (Gm 2)
Locke @ Arrieta
Big Erv @ Kluber – I have faith in Erv. Not worried about Kluber.
Graveman @ Moore – Taking a break from Moore. Watch him throw a gem.
An. Sanchez @ M. Wright – Anibal has been too inconsistent to trust in this matchup.
Adleman @ Nola
Cashner @ Peralta – Cashner a borderline call. I’ll pass in 12-team mixed leagues.
Foltynewicz @ Gee – Gee an intriguing deep-league option though.
Estrada @ Lewis
Verrett @ Butler
Peavy @ Corbin
Chacin @ Iwakuma
C. Martinez @ Kazmir – Sticking with Kazmir.
M. Gonzalez @ Tanaka
Duffey @ Bauer – I’ll give Duffey a shot. Bauer a decent option in deeper formats.
S. Gray @ Smyly – If Gray struggles here (Rays rank 28th in Majors in runs scored), I’ll officially be very concerned.
Fulmer @ Gausman
Devenski @ O’Sullivan
Fernandez @ J. Ross
Straily @ Morgan – Favorable matchup for Straily.
Vargas @ Davies
Wisler @ Duffy – Not sold on Wisler yet. Duffy deserves the nod here.
G. Cole @ Lester
Ar. Sanchez @ Ramos
Santiago @ King Felix – Santiago has been erratic lately.
deGrom @ Chatwood
Cain @ R. De La Rosa
Leake @ Wood – Need to see a bit more from Leake. I’m benching Wood versus Cardinals team that leads the NL in runs and OPS.
Lamb @ Co. Anderson – Lamb should definitely be owned in deeper mixed leagues though.
Porcello @ Ventura – Scary matchup for Ventura. (PPD)
Conley @ Eickhoff – Look for Eickhoff to get back on track here.
W. Perez @ Niese – Niese coming off quality start and this is an ideal matchup. He’s risky but I’ll take a chance.
Smyly @ Happ
Berrios @ Zimmermann – Berrios no sure thing right now but he seems to be making some progress.
Green @ Ray – I’m avoiding this matchup altogether.
Holland @ Manaea
Shoemaker @ Maeda
