Boyd @ Ar. Sanchez
Teheran @ Quintana
C. Martinez @ Ch. Anderson
Ray @ Peavy – Peavy worth a try here. Six quality starts in his last eight outings. Pitch Ray only if you really need the K’s.
Tropeano @ Gallardo
Moore @ Porcello – Moore has been solid lately but this is a very dangerous matchup. Porcello is no sure thing but I’ll take a chance on him.
Lamb @ Conley – Conley has been inconsistent of late but the matchup is favorable enough.
Sabathia @ Salazar
Graveman @ McCullers – McCullers has allowed 3 ER or fewer in seven of his last eight starts with well over a strikeout per inning and the A’s rank last in the AL in OPS.
Miley @ Volquez
Lester @ Kuhl
Perdomo @ McCarthy – Gotta pitch McCarthy.
Scherzer @ Verrett
Eickhoff @ T. Anderson – I’m a big Eickhoff fan but I’ll sit this one out.
Nolasco @ Lohse
An. Sanchez @ Dickey – Dickey pitching well right now but I don’t like this matchup.
Reed @ Koehler – Koehler a decent deep-league option though.
Tanaka @ Carrasco
G. Gonzalez @ Matz
Lackey @ Niese
Lincecum @ Tillman – Not overly optimistic about Tillman going forward. I just don’t trust him.
Odorizzi @ Price – Benching the erratic Odorizzi at Fenway.
Foltynewicz @ Shields – Ultra-favorable matchup for Shields, who seems to be finally righting the ship.
Manaea @ Keuchel – Four straight quality starts for Keuchel.
Leake @ Guerra – Leake a close call but I’ll pitch. How can you bench Guerra right now?
Montgomery @ Gee
Milone @ Griffin
Eflin @ Chatwood – Chatwood not quite 12-team mixed league worthy.
Friedrich @ Maeda
Bradley @ Bumgarner – Tough matchup for Bradley.
