ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Nola @ Roark

M. Wright @ Happ – I don’t like this matchup for Happ.

E. Rodriguez @ Gibson – Favorable matchup for Rodriguez.

Young @ Quintana

Arrieta @ Wisler – Wisler could struggle here.

Fiers @ Archer – Archer continues to make me nervous though.

Verrett @ Peralta – Verrett an intriguing deep-league option.

Graveman @ Straily

E. Johnson @ Chatwood – Pitching Chatwood at home is risky but the Padres rank in the bottom third of the NL in runs, batting average and OPS.

Verlander @ Tanaka

Kazmir @ Samardzija

C. Martinez @ Liriano – Liriano cannot be trusted right now, especially in a difficult matchup like this one.

Bauer @ Shoemaker – Bauer is on a roll and the Angels are not. I’ll stick with Shoemaker.

Fernandez @ Godley

Lewis @ Paxton – Lewis too risky versus potent Mariners lineup. I need to see one more strong outing from Paxton before I can feel comfortable pitching him in 12-team mixed leagues.

SUNDAY

Jimenez @ Ar. Sanchez

Keuchel @ Moore – Favorable matchup for the inconsistent Keuchel.

Manaea @ Lamb – Lamb has been dominant over his last two starts and the A’s offense is sub-par.

Lester @ C. Kelly

Fulmer @ Pineda – Fulmer’s last four starts: 4-0, 0.32 ERA, 0.64 WHIP, 27 K’s in 28 1/3 IP. Enough said.

Porcello @ Dean

Duffy @ Carroll – Going for it with Duffy. White Sox rank in the bottom third of the AL in runs, batting average and OPS.

Matz @ Davies

Salazar @ Huff

Morgan @ J. Ross

Conley @ Ray – Tough matchup for Conley but he’s been pitching better of late.

Friedrich @ Butler

Hamels @ Miley

Leake @ Niese – Both are more suitable for deeper leagues for this matchup.

Urias @ Peavy

MONDAY

Hendricks @ Scherzer

Eickhoff @ Dickey – Tough matchup for Eickhoff though. Dickey worth considering in deeper formats.

D. Wright @ Blair

Boyd @ Shields – Anyone feel comfortable pitching Shields right now? Anyone?

Carrasco @ Volquez

Bolsinger @ Greinke

Nolasco @ Weaver

Ramos @ Manaea

Chen @ Rea – Great matchup for Chen.

Ch. Anderson @ Cain – Anderson 3 ER or fewer in each of his last six starts.
