Duffy @ M. Gonzalez – Keep an eye on Duffy though.
Happ @ Dean – Happ should bounce back here as he’s facing a Twins offense that ranks last in the AL in both runs scored and OPS.
W. Perez @ Morgan
Ray @ Leake – Ray has been too inconsistent to trust while Leake sports a 1.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP over his last two starts.
Bauer @ Kelly – Not chancing it with Bauer at Fenway.
Chatwood @ Niese
Tanaka @ Manaea – Manaea a bit too risky for my liking.
Davies @ deGrom
King Felix @ Lamb
Smyly @ Fulmer
Lester @ Cain – Cain has been dominant lately but this is a tough matchup.
Ramos @ Fiers
J. Ross @ Fernandez
Gausman @ Shoemaker
Wood @ Vargas – Vargas still worth holding onto in NL-only leagues.
Ch. Anderson @ Syndergaard – Anderson is one more quality start away from getting back into my good graces.
Miley @ Simon – Miley has been solid of late but Reds rank 1st in NL in runs scored at home.
Archer @ Zimmermann
Scherzer @ Conley – Playing it safe with Conley in challenging matchup.
TBD (ATL) @ Eickhoff – Seriously, what are the odds that Eickhoff struggles twice in a row versus Braves?
Salazar @ Porcello
Bettis @ Nicasio – I’m not overly confident in either.
Ventura @ Rodon – Rodon bounced back nicely his last time out.
Hamels @ Keuchel – Sticking with Keuchel despite his inconsistency.
Stroman @ Hughes
Greinke @ Garcia
Jimenez @ Weaver – Slugfest alert!
Pineda @ Hahn – I’ve lost all faith in Pineda.
Maeda @ Rea
Hendricks @ Bumgarner
Lyles @ Vogelsong
Clevinger @ Latos (Gm 1)
Co. Anderson @ E. Johnson (Gm 2)
Colon @ G. Gonzalez – I’ll pass on Colon, who has struggled lately.
Velasquez @ Pelfrey
Moore @ Chen
Tropeano @ Holland – I need to see a little more consistency from both.
Kennedy @ Nolasco
Lackey @ Wainwright – Wainwright’s last outing was encouraging.
Hill @ Walker – Walker not as sharp of late but he still deserves the nod here.
Finnegan @ Kershaw – Not a good matchup for Finnegan.
Pomeranz @ Cueto
