David Phelps

ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

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

SUNDAY

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

MONDAY

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

Lester @ Jackson
