ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Porcello @ Stroman

Rodon @ Ventura – I’m encouraged by what I’ve seen from Rodon over his last two starts. Ventura cannot be trusted in mixed leagues for the time being.

Eickhoff @ Hendricks – Eickhoff a little risky though.

Boyd @ Hahn – Hahn worth monitoring.

Jimenez @ Salazar

Simon @ Ch. Anderson – Anderson has been very inconsistent this year.

Chen @ Blair

Pineda @ Moore – Both make me too nervous.

Bumgarner @ Rusin

Maeda @ Syndergaard – I’ll take a chance on the slumping Maeda here.

Nicasio @ Darvish – Darvish will be on pitch count but you might as well trot him out there.

Wainwright @ G. Gonzalez – Wainwright pitching just well enough to hang onto mixed league starter status.

Keuchel @ Weaver – Finally taking a break from Keuchel.

Hughes @ Miley – Miley a decent option in deeper formats.

Vargas @ Greinke – Playing it safe with Vargas in hitter-friendly park.

SUNDAY

Price @ Dickey

Tillman @ Clevinger

Eovaldi @ Odorizzi – Eovaldi is on a roll.

Wacha @ Strasburg – Wacha a toss-up but he’s been terrible lately and this is a tough matchup.

Finnegan @ Nelson – Finnegan has been so-so this season and Brewers rank 5th in NL in OPS at home.

Latos @ Volquez

Velasquez @ Lackey

Liriano @ M. Perez – Both are a bit too risky in this matchup.

Fister @ Tropeano

Pelfrey @ Hill

Nolasco @ Walker

Pomeranz @ TBD (ARI)

Cueto @ Butler

Koehler @ Teheran – Koehler not a bad play here in deeper leagues.

Kershaw @ Colon

MONDAY

Sale @ Harvey – Tough to pitch Harvey at this point.

Samardzija @ Foltynewicz – Not a great matchup for Foltynewicz.

S. Wright @ T. Wilson

C. Martinez @ Guerra – Guerra should be owned in most deep mixed leagues by now but pitching him here is asking for trouble.

Big Erv @ Graveman – I like this matchup for Erv.

TBD (CIN) @ Bettis

McHugh @ R. De La Rosa – De La Rosa is tempting but there’s just too much downside involved here.

Cashner @ Karns – Cashner has some more rust to shake off.

Wood @ Hammel

Lewis @ Tomlin – Hard to trust Lewis in less than favorable matchup. Still not sold on Tomlin but Rangers rank 13th in AL in both runs scored and OPS on the road.

Roark @ Hellickson – Hellickson has been very impressive but I’ll sit this one out.

Nova @ Estrada

Locke @ Nicolino

Andriese @ Kennedy – I’ll pitch Andriese versus Royals team that ranks next to last in AL in runs scored.

Verlander @ Chacin
