Josh Tomlin

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

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.

SUNDAY

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

MONDAY

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.
