Musgrove @ Nova – I’ll give Musgrove another chance. Pirates rank last in the NL in both runs scored and OPS since the All-Star break.
Lopez @ Gausman – Lopez coming off two straight dominant outings but both were versus Braves. This matchup is a little tougher. Gausman is risky here but he’s worth pitching for the K’s.
Skaggs @ Dickey – Staying far away from this one.
Buchholz @ Archer – Buchholz an intriguing play in deeper leagues though.
Ventura @ Cashner – Ventura continues to roll. Cashner continues to make me nervous.
Holland @ Straily – Straily has been solid for quite some time now but I have a bad feeling about this.
J. Gray @ Ch. Anderson – Gray really struggling lately.
An. Sanchez @ Gibson – I’m still not comfortable pitching Anibal in 12-team mixed leagues.
Thompson @ Rodon – Three straight quality starts for Rodon and this is a favorable matchup.
Niese @ Garcia – Garcia has been hard to trust this season but the Mets rank second to last in the Majors in runs scored, ahead of only the Braves.
Whalen @ Bradley – Even in favorable matchup, Bradley is too risky.
Salazar @ Manaea – Wouldn’t blame you for benching Salazar though.
Arrieta @ Friedrich
Sabathia @ Walker
Bumgarner @ Maeda
