ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

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

SUNDAY

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.

MONDAY

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.
