Big Erv @ Pineda – Pineda starting to pitch better lately though. Keep an eye on him going forward.
Andriese @ Gausman (Gm 1) – Decent matchup for Gausman but I’m taking a break from him in 12-team mixed leagues.
Odorizzi @ Tillman (Gm 2)
Dickey @ M. Gonzalez
S. Miller @ J. De La Rosa – Shelby at Coors? No thanks.
Lackey @ Clemens
Carrasco @ An. Sanchez – Anibal returns to the rotation. Let’s see if he shows any improvement.
Pomeranz @ Finnegan – I’ll take a chance on Finnegan here.
G. Gonzalez @ Garza
Fiers @ Young – Fiers is 2-0 with a 2.63 ERA through four June starts.
Maeda @ Locke
deGrom @ Teheran
S. Wright @ Griffin
Overton @ Chacin
Hellickson @ Bumgarner – Hellickson too risky here.
Leake @ Karns – I still believe in Karns but this is a tough matchup.
Duffey @ Eovaldi
Hammel @ Fernandez
Tomlin @ Verlander – Four straight quality starts for Tomlin and he’s 2-0 with a 2.13 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in two starts vs. Tigers this season.
Perdomo @ DeSclafani – DeSclafani worth using in deep mixed leagues but I still need to see more before I can recommend him in 12-teamers.
Colon @ B. Norris
Smyly @ T. Wilson
Stroman @ Sale
Strasburg @ Nelson – Tough matchup for Nelson.
Fister @ Kennedy – Kennedy has been very inconsistent this year.
Buchholz @ M. Perez – Dangerous matchup for both.
S. Gray @ Santiago – I’ll give it a go with Gray here.
Nola @ Cueto – Sticking with Nola.
Corbin @ Bettis – Passing on Corbin at Coors.
Garcia @ Paxton – Challenging matchup for both though.
Kershaw @ Kuhl
Kazmir @ Liriano
Syndergaard @ J. Ross
C. Gonzalez @ Nova
E. Rodriguez @ Snell – Both are decent deep-league options though.
Arrieta @ Straily
Bauer @ Gant
Wainwright @ Duffy – Playing it safe with Duffy in this matchup.
Estrada @ J. Gray – There is some risk with the fly-ball prone Estrada at Coors though.
Velasquez @ Ray – Let me see one solid start from Velasquez first. This isn’t a great matchup anyway.
McHugh @ Shoemaker – McHugh seems to be getting his act together.
Mengden @ Samardzija – Not sold on Mengden just yet.
