Braden Shipley


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.

Drop Mazara? Doesn’t seem to play much anymore and not producing

Depends on who you’re adding, but generally speaking, I wouldn’t give up on him.


Grichuk if starter ROS would you take him over L Martin or Mazara. What about when Maybin returns. 12 team head to head mixed

If you need the steals, go with Martin. Otherwise, I’ll give Grichuk the edge over Mazara due to the PT situation.


Lots of Mazara talk even without Choo he is not in the line up once again. Have they given up on him cause could use that roster spot especially if Pollock returns soon
