ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

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

SUNDAY

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.
