E. Rodriguez @ Gausman – Gausman is on a roll. I’d pitch him despite the tough matchup.
Shields @ Thompson – Thompson worth considering in deeper formats.
Teheran @ Gsellman – I trust Gsellman enough to pitch him in this matchup.
Volquez @ Tomlin
Pineda @ Smyly – Smyly far from a sure thing though.
Roark @ Fernandez
J. Smith @ Lester
D. Wright @ Griffin
Boyd @ Santiago – Giving Boyd another chance after he let me down his last time out.
Brault @ Garza
Wainwright @ J. De La Rosa – Playing it safe with Wainwright at Coors considering his inconsistency this season.
Musgrove @ Manaea – Two straight quality starts for Musgrove versus tough Cubs and Rangers lineups. The A’s, on the other hand, rank last in the AL in both runs scored and OPS.
Bradley @ Clemens – Bradley too unreliable lately.
Cueto @ Hill
Happ @ Iwakuma
