McAllister @ Estrada
C. Gonzalez @ Duffey
Nelson @ Wainwright – Playing it safe with Nelson here.
Sale @ Fister
Verlander @ Snell – Snell a toss-up but I’ll pass in 12-team mixed leagues.
Fernandez @ Harrell
Duffy @ Nola – Bench Nola until further notice.
Arrieta @ Colon – Colon a little risky though.
Straily @ J. Ross
Santiago @ Buchholz
Kuhl @ Hill – Let’s take a wait and see approach with Hill in his first start back.
T. Wilson @ Paxton – Dangerous matchup for Paxton.
Bettis @ Kazmir – Kazmir has been shaky lately and the Rockies ranked 1st in the NL in runs scored in June.
Nova @ Pomeranz
Samardzija @ Corbin
Kluber @ Happ – Happ has been inconsistent of late and the Indians offense is hot.
Lester @ Syndergaard
Pelfrey @ Archer – Losing patience with Archer though.
Lamb @ Giolito
Ventura @ Velasquez
Shoemaker @ Wilkerson – Tough to bench Shoemaker right now but I don’t have a good feeling about this one.
Quintana @ McHugh – Three straight quality starts for McHugh and the White Sox ranked 13th in the AL in runs scored in June.
Hamels @ Gibson
Ch. Anderson @ Wacha
Liriano @ Mengden – It’s time to take Mengden seriously.
Jimenez @ Iwakuma
J. Gray @ Urias – Both are viable plays in deeper formats though.
Suarez @ Ray
Green @ Cashner
Conley @ Wisler – Conley a must-start here. I’ll take a chance on Wisler.

Lincecum @ Moore – Going for it with Moore.
N. Martinez @ Porcello – Porcello a borderline call though.
Sabathia @ Shields – Shields slowly regaining 12-team mixed league relevance, but we’re not there yet.
Manaea @ Nolasco
Miley @ McCullers – Pitch McCullers only if you really need the K’s.
Niese @ C. Martinez
Reed @ Hendricks – Disaster alert for Reed.

De La Cruz @ Eickhoff
Koehler @ Harvey – Sticking with Harvey.
