S. Wright @ Kennedy (Gm 1) – The regression process for Wright has already begun but Royals surprisingly rank last in AL in runs scored. Kennedy coming off his worst outing of the season, so I’ll sit him here.
Price @ Volquez (Gm 2) – Dangerous matchup for Volquez.
Koehler @ Hellickson – My confidence level in Hellickson is low, regardless of the opponent.
Nolasco @ Verlander
M. Perez @ Hill – Perez has been solid for the most part.
Teheran @ Liriano
Walker @ Tillman
Odorizzi @ Dickey – Tough matchup for the inconsistent Odorizzi but he’s had success versus Blue Jays this season (1.42 ERA, 0.79 WHIP in two starts).
Clevinger @ Finnegan – Finnegan too erratic to trust right now in 12-team mixed leagues.
G. Gonzalez @ Colon – Colon a little risky though.
Lackey @ Nelson – I’ll pitch Nelson, but he’s far from a sure thing in this matchup.
Fister @ Latos – Latos is fading. I’ll pass.
Rusin @ Wainwright – Wainwright testing my patience but I still have some patience left.
Eovaldi @ Miller – I don’t like the matchup for either.
Bolsinger @ Tropeano
Cueto @ Pomeranz
