Cobb @ Estrada – Tough matchup for Cobb but he pitched well versus Blue Jays in his season debut. Estrada struggling of late, so I’ll sit this one out in 12-team mixed leagues.
Lester @ C. Martinez
Perdomo @ Bumgarner
Kershaw @ Pineda – Kershaw will probably be on a strict pitch count again.
Gsellman @ Roark – Playing it safe with Gsellman in challenging matchup.
Brault @ Thompson – Brault worth considering in deeper formats though.
Gausman @ Porcello – Four straight quality starts for Gausman but this is a scary matchup. I’d still lean towards pitching him.
Fernandez @ Teheran
Guerra @ Adleman – Guerra has been a little shaky since his return but I’ll take a chance on him here.
Duffey @ An. Sanchez
Manaea @ Ventura – Ventura wasn’t great in his most recent start but he still holds a 3.03 ERA in 11 starts since the All-Star break and the A’s rank last in the AL in both runs scored and OPS.
Tomlin @ Rodon – Seven straight quality starts for Rodon.
Holland @ Musgrove – Hard to trust Musgrove in this matchup.
Hoffman @ R. De La Rosa
Iwakuma @ Chacin
