Buchholz @ Boyd
Davies @ Arrieta – Davies a little risky though.
Musgrove @ Gausman – Tough matchup for Musgrove but he’s earned it. Gausman too inconsistent lately.
Stripling @ Eickhoff – Eickhoff has been shaky of late. I’ll play it safe.
Rodon @ Salazar – Rodon pitching well but I don’t like this matchup.
Fernandez @ Straily – Straily is 4-0 with a 2.13 ERA and 0.92 WHIP in six starts since the All-Star break.
R. Lopez @ Whalen – Lopez worth considering in deeper formats thanks to the matchup.
Duffey @ Gee
Iwakuma @ Shoemaker
Bradley @ Clemens – Bench Bradley until further notice.
deGrom @ Bumgarner
