Pineda @ Nolasco
Greinke @ Eickhoff – Eickhoff has pitched to a 1.37 ERA and 1.02 WHIP through three June starts and Diamondbacks rank last in NL in runs scored this month.
Lincecum @ Neal – Welcome back, Tiny Tim!
Miley @ Porcello
Dickey @ Gallardo
Reed @ Keuchel – Taking a wait and see approach with Reed. Keuchel still risky but at least the K’s are nice.
Chatwood @ Chen – Favorable matchup for Chatwood (5-0, 0.65 ERA through six road starts this season).
Peavy @ Moore – Moore coming off gem but I remain skeptical.
N. Martinez @ C. Martinez
Shields @ Salazar – Shields a total mess right now.
Blair @ Matz
Boyd @ Volquez
Niese @ Lester – Staying away from Niese here.
Ch. Anderson @ Bolsinger – Anderson a real toss-up though.
Scherzer @ Rea
Teheran @ deGrom
Rodon @ Carrasco
T. Anderson @ Koehler – Koehler continues to get the job done.
Suarez @ Odorizzi
Bradley @ Eflin – Promising matchup for Bradley.
Walker @ Price – Walker a little risky though.
Stroman @ Tillman – Both offenses are red hot (top two teams in Majors in runs scored this month), so I’ll pass here.
Finnegan @ Fiers – I’ll take a chance on both.
Eovaldi @ Big Erv – Eovaldi in a funk right now.
Zimmermann @ Young
M. Perez @ Leake – Perez not a bad choice in deeper formats but this is a tough matchup.
Weaver @ Surkamp
Garza @ Maeda
G. Gonzalez @ Pomeranz
Taillon @ Hendricks – Taillon a little too risky here in 12-team mixed leagues.
S. Miller @ Hellickson
Bumgarner @ Locke
M. Gonzalez @ S. Wright
J. De La Rosa @ Clemens
Karns @ Pelfrey – Not risking it with the erratic Karns in challenging matchup.
Smyly @ Tomlin – Tomlin pitching well of late.
Gausman @ Holland – Downside outweighs upside with both.
Garcia @ Lackey – Still a believer in Garcia but I don’t have a good feeling about this one.
Chacin @ Fister – Fister’s resurgent season continues.
Strasburg @ Kershaw – Simply a must-watch.
