Garza @ Cahill (Gm 1)
Ch. Anderson @ Hammel (Gm 2)
E. Rodriguez @ Gallardo
Maeda @ Velasquez – Velasquez coming off ugly outing versus these very same Dodgers, but I’ll go for it.
Estrada @ Pineda – Dangerous matchup for the inconsistent Pineda.
Quintana @ Kluber
Duffy @ Verlander
Urena @ DeSclafani
Big Erv @ De La Cruz – Tasty matchup for Erv.
Jackson @ Snell – Not buying into Jackson. Great bounceback opportunity for Snell.
Triggs @ Harrell
Garcia @ Keuchel – Garcia has been outstanding of late.
G. Gonzalez @ Bettis – Challenging matchup for Gio though.
Syndergaard @ Shipley – Shipley blanked the Mets across seven innings on Thursday and now gets to face them again. Note that the Mets rank last in the Majors in OPS this month.
Miranda @ Chacin
Taillon @ Samardzija – Taillon has emerged as a must-start. Samardzija worth a try versus Pirates team that ranks 13th in the NL in both runs scored and OPS since the All-Star break.
