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.
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
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.
