Bauer @ Bundy
Eflin @ Cole – Eflin a decent option in deeper formats though.
Perdomo @ Roark
Bumgarner @ Tanaka
Paxton @ Estrada – Playing it safe with Paxton here.
Bradley @ Straily – Bradley worth a shot versus sub-par Reds offense. Three straight quality starts for Straily but I don’t like this matchup.
Gibson @ E. Rodriguez
Verrett @ Conley – Conley sports a 2.12 ERA and 0.94 WHIP through three July starts and the Mets rank 28th in the Majors in runs scored this season.
Hammel @ Nelson – Tough matchup for Nelson but he’s pitched well against the Cubs this year (0.71 ERA in two starts).
Fulmer @ Turner
Shoemaker @ McCullers – McCullers a little risky but the strikeouts are too enticing to pass up.
McCarthy @ Wacha
Darvish @ Duffy
Teheran @ J. Gray – Favorable matchup for Gray.
Odorizzi @ Manaea – Ditto for Odorizzi.
