Taillon @ DeSclafani (Gm 1)
Williams @ Finnegan (Gm 2)
Mitchell @ Price
G. Gonzalez @ Collmenter
Davies @ Arrieta – Tough matchup for Davies though.
Verlander @ Carrasco
Urena @ Hellickson – Hellickson has pitched to a 2.59 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in five starts versus the Marlins this season.
Andriese @ Tillman
Big Erv @ Lugo – Lugo has been very impressive since moving into the starting rotation.
M. Gonzalez @ Vargas
Alcantara @ Darvish
Stewart @ S. Miller
Jackson @ J. Gray – Gray has struggled lately.
Leake @ Samardzija – Leake a borderline call. I’ll go for it.
Liriano @ Nolasco
Fiers @ Paxton – Fiers is intriguing but he was terrible his last time out. Not overly enthusiastic about Paxton.
D. Norris @ Bauer – Challenging matchup for Norris though. I don’t trust Bauer right now.
Gibson @ deGrom
Nova @ Straily – Nova 2 ER or fewer in each of his last five starts.
Cashner @ Asher – Cashner maddeningly inconsistent.
Odorizzi @ Miley
J. Ross @ Wisler – Ross will reportedly be limited to around three innings, so there’s not much appeal here.
Quintana @ Duffy
Peralta @ Hendricks – Dangerous matchup for Peralta.
Detwiler @ Lewis – Lewis worth considering in deeper formats though.
Stroman @ Meyer
Reyes @ Suarez – Reyes hard to trust in 12-team mixed leagues until he shows improved control.
Fister @ Miranda – Miranda a viable deep-league option.
De Leon @ Ray – Pitch Ray if you’re chasing K’s. Otherwise, I’d pass.
Cosart @ Bettis – Not buying into Bettis for 12-team mixed league purposes.
Sabathia @ Pomeranz
Rodon @ Ventura – I have faith in Rodon. I’ll take a chance on Ventura here.
Porcello @ Bundy
Blair @ Syndergaard
A.J. Cole @ Chen
Adleman @ Hammel
Chacin @ M. Perez
C. Martinez @ T. Anderson – Sticking with Anderson.
Peacock @ Cotton – I like what I’ve seen from Cotton thus far.
Shipley @ Richard
Bumgarner @ Kershaw
Estrada @ Walker – Playing it safe with Walker in this matchup.
