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
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.
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
