ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Kluber @ Sabathia

E. Rodriguez @ Stripling

Arrieta @ S. Gray – Gray has been a huge disappointment this year.

Berrios @ Archer – Archer finally showing some consistency.

Bailey @ Nova – I need to see more than just one start from Bailey.

Cain @ Strasburg

Tillman @ Rodon – Not a good matchup for the up and down Rodon.

Verrett @ Boyd

Harrell @ Fister – Fister has fared well versus Rangers this season (2.25 ERA over two starts) but he’s still too risky here.

R. Hernandez @ C. Martinez

Ar. Sanchez @ Duffy – Challenging matchup for Duffy but he’s earned must-start status.

Cashner @ Bettis – Not chancing it with Cashner at Coors.

Garza @ Corbin

Thompson @ Clemens

Skaggs @ Walker – Skaggs has yet to allow a run through 12 1/3 innings this season and the Mariners rank 24th in the Majors in OPS since the All-Star break. Let’s see how Walker does in his first start back.

SUNDAY

Carrasco @ Tanaka

Gibson @ Andriese – Andriese worth a shot in deeper formats though.

deGrom @ An. Sanchez

Straily @ Cole – Six straight quality starts for Straily.

Bumgarner @ Roark

Bundy @ Shields – Bundy deserves the nod. Scary matchup for Shields.

Darvish @ Musgrove

Foltynewicz @ Wainwright

Stroman @ Ventura – Stroman pitching better of late and I like this matchup.

Hendricks @ Manaea

Shoemaker @ Paxton – Paxton a borderline call but the Angels offense has been hot lately.

Conley @ J. Gray – I’ll steer clear of Conley at Coors just to be safe, though home runs have not been a problem for him this year.

Nelson @ Bradley – Not overly enthusiastic about either pitcher here.

Eickhoff @ Cosart

Price @ McCarthy – Hard to trust McCarthy right now, especially in this matchup.

MONDAY

Odorizzi @ Dickey

Cueto @ Fernandez

Whalen @ Davies – Tasty matchup for Davies.

McHugh @ Duffey – McHugh coming off solid bounceback outing.

Reed @ Wacha

Hamels @ T. Anderson – Anderson continues to impress but this matchup scares me.

Gausman @ Graveman

Fulmer @ Iwakuma

Eflin @ Urias
