David Phelps


Gallardo @ Cessa

Hoffman @ G. Gonzalez

Dean @ Liriano – Liriano too hard to trust from one start to the next.

Kennedy @ S. Wright – Wouldn’t blame you for benching Kennedy here.

Nolasco @ Verlander

Morgan @ Colon – Colon sports a 2.04 ERA and 0.91 WHIP in three starts versus Phillies this season.

Cosart @ Phelps – Phelps has registered a 1.31 ERA and 11.3 K/9 rate in four starts this month and the Padres rank last in the Majors in OPS this month.

Kluber @ M. Perez

Vogelsong @ Garza

King Felix @ Sale

Smyly @ Fiers – Smyly is 4-1 with a 3.50 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break. Fiers a decent option in deeper formats.

Detwiler @ L. Weaver

Finnegan @ Shipley – Finnegan has been solid of late but I don’t like this matchup.

Montgomery @ B. Norris – Pitch count restrictions limit Montgomery’s appeal.

De La Cruz @ Samardzija

I know it’s early, but I’m looking at my potential 2017 keepers. So far I’ve got Murphy, Dozier, Syndergaard, Fulmer and Aaron Sanchez. Add two from the following:
Porcello, Segura, JBJ, Naquin or Jake Lamb.

Lamb and JBJ, without question.
