Darvish @ Hammel – Tough matchup for Darvish in his return, but I’ll pitch him anyway.
E. Rodriguez @ Sabathia – Sabathia struggling of late.
Dickey @ S. Gray – Playing it safe with Sonny here.
McCullers @ Iwakuma – Both are a little risky though.
Tillman @ Moore – Moore a toss-up, but I don’t like this matchup.
Verrett @ Eickhoff
Cole @ Roark
Bauer @ Duffey
Bettis @ Foltynewicz
Duffy @ Pelfrey
Nelson @ Lamb
Koehler @ Wainwright
McCarthy @ Bradley – I need to see more consistency from Bradley.
Samardzija @ Perdomo
Shields @ Shoemaker – Shields still scares me, but he’s allowed 3 ER or fewer in each of his last four starts.
Bundy @ Odorizzi – Challenging matchup for the inconsistent Odorizzi. I’ll sit this one out.
Ventura @ Fulmer
Davies @ Straily – Both are decent deep-league options though.
J. Gray @ Teheran – Gray, fresh off back-to-back quality starts, is worth a shot versus lowest-scoring offense in the Majors.
deGrom @ Eflin – Eflin deserves consideration in deeper formats.
Kuhl @ Scherzer
Tomlin @ Gibson – Tomlin is so unpredictable, but this matchup is favorable enough.
Conley @ Wacha – Conley not a no-brainer though.
Hamels @ Lackey
Turner @ Weaver
Happ @ Hill
McHugh @ Montgomery
Maeda @ Ray – Despite excellent K rate, Ray is too disaster-prone for my liking.
Cueto @ Jackson
Price @ Tanaka
