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.
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.
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
