Colon @ Moore
Griffin @ Odorizzi – Challenging matchup for Odorizzi but he’s 4-0 with a 1.66 ERA and 1.05 WHIP in six starts since the All-Star break.
Fiers @ Tillman
Phelps @ Kuhl – Taking a chance on Phelps here as the Pirates rank last in the NL in runs scored since the All-Star break. Kuhl an intriguing deep-league option.
L. Weaver @ Hellickson
Pomeranz @ D. Norris – Norris a little risky though.
B. Anderson @ Finnegan
Detwiler @ Sale
Ar. Sanchez @ Tomlin – Tomlin actually pitched well versus Blue Jays last month but I’ll play it safe.
Scherzer @ Jenkins
Santiago @ Kennedy – Santiago hard to trust right now.
Montgomery @ TBD (COL)
Ray @ Richard – Great matchup for Ray.
Peralta @ King Felix
Cessa @ Nolasco
E. Rodriguez @ Verlander
Maeda @ DeSclafani – DeSclafani 10-for-13 in quality starts this season.
M. Perez @ Smyly – Perez worth consideration in deeper formats. Smyly is 3-1 with a 3.16 ERA in six starts since the All-Star break.
Stroman @ Kluber – Stroman impressive of late.
Keuchel @ Gallardo – Dangerous matchup for the inconsistent Keuchel. I’ll sit this one out.
Urena @ Vogelsong
Leake @ Velasquez – Leake coming off two straight quality starts and this is a favorable enough matchup.
G. Gonzalez @ De La Cruz
Hahn @ Quintana
Big Erv @ Duffy
Green @ Chacin – Green a viable option in deeper leagues and he could soon surface on the 12-team mixed league radar, but not yet.
Hammel @ J. De La Rosa
Garza @ Miranda
Shipley @ Perdomo – Giving Shipley another shot in favorable matchup.
Syndergaard @ Samardzija
Pineda @ Martin – Still not sold on Pineda.
Kazmir @ Bailey – Going for it with both.
A. Cole @ Bundy – Taking the conservative route with Bundy in this matchup.
Fister @ Taillon – Sticking with Fister.
Price @ Snell – Passing on Snell here.
Bettis @ Nelson
Foltynewicz @ Godley
Carrasco @ Triggs
