ZACH’S PICKS

SATURDAY

Bundy @ Green – Tough matchup for Green. I’ll play it safe.

J. De La Rosa @ A. Cole

Big Erv @ Stroman

Hammel @ TBD (LAD)

Duffy @ Price

Chacin @ Fulmer – Fulmer should bounce back here.

Hellickson @ Syndergaard – Hellickson is 4-1 with a 2.84 ERA in seven starts since the All-Star break.

Taillon @ Nelson – Nelson coming off strong outing but he needs to show more consistency.

Richard @ Urena

Miranda @ Quintana

Snell @ Keuchel – Control issues continue to plague Snell. He’s a bit too risky right now. Keuchel is no sure thing either but I’ll go for it.

Neal @ Leake – Leake coming off one of his best outings of the season and the A’s rank 28th in the Majors in runs scored since the All-Star break.

Carrasco @ Griffin

DeSclafani @ Godley

Foltynewicz @ Peavy

SUNDAY

Gausman @ Sabathia

Gibson @ Dickey

Skaggs @ An. Sanchez – Anibal worth a try in deeper formats though.

Velasquez @ Gsellman – A matchup against the Mets should cure whatever is ailing Velasquez.

Perdomo @ Cashner – Cashner a decent deep-league option for this one.

Bettis @ TBD (WAS)

Nova @ Ch. Anderson

Walker @ Rodon – Walker a little risky but I’ll take a chance on him. Rodon has been on a roll.

Archer @ Fister

Triggs @ Garcia

Salazar @ Holland – Benching Salazar for the time being. Keep an eye on Holland.

Whalen @ Bumgarner

Lester @ Stewart

Bailey @ Bradley – Both are hard to trust right now.

Ventura @ E. Rodriguez – Ventura has been very good for quite some time but this matchup makes me too nervous.

MONDAY

Pineda @ Gee

Estrada @ Miley – Sticking with Estrada.

Roark @ Thompson

Andriese @ Porcello

Santiago @ Bauer – Bauer a toss-up. I’ll pitch.

Shields @ Boyd – Three straight quality starts for Boyd.

Fernandez @ Montero

C. Martinez @ Davies – Davies’ last start was encouraging.

Iwakuma @ Darvish

Brault @ Arrieta

Manaea @ Musgrove – Musgrove a borderline call. Pitch in deeper formats.

Maeda @ J. Gray

Straily @ Shoemaker
