Adam Conley

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Andriese @ Tanaka – Andriese worth monitoring though.

McHugh @ Ar. Sanchez – Dangerous matchup for McHugh. I’ll play it safe.

L. Weaver @ Hendricks

Cole @ McCarthy – Dodgers hoping McCarthy can make this start.

Whalen @ TBD (WAS)

T. Anderson @ Eickhoff – Favorable matchup for Anderson.

Bradley @ Buchholz – Bradley has been shaky lately.

Shields @ Conley – I’m back to not trusting Shields. I’ll take a chance on Conley versus White Sox offense that ranks in the bottom third of the Majors in both runs scored and OPS.

Straily @ Davies – Seven straight quality starts for Straily and this matchup is far from scary.

Gee @ Duffey

Shoemaker @ Clevinger

Cosart @ deGrom

Boyd @ Hamels

Gausman @ Bumgarner

Iwakuma @ Graveman – Iwakuma 14 1/3 IP, 0 ER, 15 K over his last two starts. Graveman a decent option in deeper formats.

SUNDAY

Odorizzi @ TBD (NYY)

Fiers @ Stroman – Stroman a little risky though.

Sale @ Koehler – Koehler has been dominant of late.

J. Weaver @ Bauer – Bauer too inconsistent these days.

Richard @ Matz

Greinke @ Porcello

Jenkins @ Roark

Chatwood @ Buchanan – Chatwood is 6-0 with a 1.30 ERA in nine road starts this season.

Reed @ Peralta

Volquez @ Santiago – Favorable matchup for Santiago but he’s been so-so since trade to Twins. This one is a toss-up.

Fulmer @ Griffin

Miley @ Cueto

LeBlanc @ Neal

Kuhl @ B. Anderson – Kuhl an intriguing deep-league option though.

Leake @ Lackey – Leake hard to trust in this matchup.

MONDAY

Dickey @ Green

Pomeranz @ Tomlin – Sticking with Pomeranz.

Kennedy @ D. Norris – Norris a fairly safe play here.

Phelps @ Finnegan – Finnegan pitching well recently but I still wouldn’t start him in 12-team mixed leagues.

Perdomo @ Smyly – Smyly finally putting together a strong stretch.

Detwiler @ M. Perez – Perez is 6-1 with a 2.47 ERA in 12 home starts this season and this is a favorable matchup. He’s worth a try here.

Scherzer @ J. De La Rosa

Colon @ Ray – Great matchup for Ray.

King Felix @ Nolasco

Vogelsong @ Moore
