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.

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.

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