E. Rodriguez @ Happ – Happ has been shaky lately but I’ll stick with him.
Lackey @ McHugh
King Felix @ Graveman – Four straight quality starts for Graveman. Let’s go for it.
Archer @ Tanaka
Stephenson @ Hutchison – Stephenson worth considering in deeper formats.
Eickhoff @ Scherzer – Eickhoff a little risky though.
Jimenez @ Zimmermann – Bench Zim until further notice.
Clevinger @ Santiago – Playing it safe with Santiago.
Volquez @ Shields
Hill @ Koehler – Koehler has registered eight quality starts in his last nine outings.
Lugo @ Gant – Lugo is on a roll and this is a favorable matchup.
Ch. Anderson @ Wainwright
Cueto @ Bradley – Bradley pitching better of late but I’m still leery of starting him in 12-team mixed leagues.
J. Gray @ Friedrich – Gray coming off mediocre outing versus Diamondbacks but I’m expecting him to bounce back here as he sports a 2.25 ERA in three starts versus the Padres this season with 30 strikeouts across 20 innings.
Hamels @ D. Wright
Andriese @ Cessa – Cessa more of a deep-league option.
Buchholz @ Ar. Sanchez – Tough matchup for Buchholz.
Tillman @ Verlander – I don’t have a lot of confidence in Tillman right now.
Maeda @ Urena
Finnegan @ Vogelsong – Favorable enough matchup for Finnegan.
Colon @ W. Perez
Morgan @ G. Gonzalez
Kluber @ Berrios
Kennedy @ Sale
Davies @ L. Weaver – I’ll take a chance on Weaver here.
Lewis @ J. Weaver
Paxton @ Alcantara – Promising matchup for Paxton.
Moore @ Greinke – I’m still a believer in Moore.
Bettis @ Jackson – Bettis not a bad gamble in deeper leagues for this matchup.
Arrieta @ Fiers – Dangerous matchup for Fiers.
De Leon @ Mitchell – De Leon worth considering in deeper leagues.
R. Montero @ Latos
G. Cole @ Hellickson
Odorizzi @ Liriano – Challenging matchup for Odorizzi though.
Miley @ Price
Big Erv @ D. Norris
Cashner @ Foltynewicz – I don’t trust Cashner right now regardless of the matchup. Foltynewicz an intriguing deep-league option.
Peralta @ Sampson – Keep an eye on Peralta though.
Detwiler @ Gee
Carrasco @ M. Gonzalez
M. Perez @ Fister – Fister has been struggling for awhile now.
Hendricks @ Leake
T. Anderson @ S. Miller – Anderson 2 ER or fewer in each of his last three starts.
