Arrieta @ Liriano
Shoemaker @ Jimenez – I’ll pass on Shoemaker here.
Pelfrey @ Happ – Happ has earned it.
Straily @ Fernandez – Straily a decent option in deeper formats though.
Green @ Kluber – Not sold on Green just yet.
Archer @ O’Sullivan – Risk outweighs reward with Archer at Fenway.
Strasburg @ Syndergaard – Matchup of the night!
Gibson @ Hamels
Wisler @ Sale – Keep an eye on Wisler going forward though.
Mengden @ McHugh – Nice matchup for McHugh.
Velasquez @ J. Gray – Playing it safe with Velasquez at Coors. Gray is tempting but the Phillies offense has actually picked it up of late.
Wacha @ Nelson – Nelson a toss-up but I’ll sit this one out.
Iwakuma @ Ventura – Iwakuma has been inconsistent lately but the Royals rank last in the AL in runs scored this season.
Cashner @ Kazmir – Cashner strictly a deep-league option for the time being.
Corbin @ Samardzija – Outside of particularly favorable matchups, I’m not comfortable pitching Corbin right now.
