Ventura @ D. Norris – Ventura coming off a complete game victory and he’s 3-0 with a 1.76 ERA in five starts versus the Tigers this season.
Reyes @ Hammel – Reyes too risky here unless you’re chasing strikeouts.
Darvish @ Alcantara
Sabathia @ Stroman
Porcello @ Andriese
Ray @ Miley – Pitch Ray only if you need K’s more than ERA/WHIP help.
J. Ross @ Nova – Ross will again be on a pitch count but he’s likely to make it through five innings if effective.
Blair @ Chen
Quintana @ Co. Anderson
Straily @ Jungmann – Straily is 2-0 with a 1.77 ERA in three starts versus the Brewers this season.
Chacin @ Peacock – Peacock worth a look in deeper formats.
Asher @ Syndergaard
Miranda @ Duffey – Miranda has been impressive lately but I don’t view him as 12-team mixed league material just yet.
Bumgarner @ Cosart
Bettis @ Kershaw – Bettis a borderline call here but I’ll pass in mixed leagues.
Pineda @ Estrada
E. Rodriguez @ Odorizzi – Rodriguez an intriguing deep-league option though.
Rodon @ Tomlin – Sticking with Rodon.
Volquez @ Boyd – Boyd coming off strong bounceback outing.
Thompson @ Gsellman – Thompson a decent deep-league choice though.
Shipley @ Bundy – Bundy too inconsistent to trust these days.
A.J. Cole @ Brault
Finnegan @ Peralta – Seems like Finnegan is out of gas so I’ll bench him in his season finale. Taking a chance on Peralta but benching him is fine too.
D. Wright @ Musgrove
Walker @ Santiago – Both are far from sure things though.
Lewis @ Cotton – Favorable matchup for Lewis. Cotton a little risky here but I’ll go for it.
T. Anderson @ Hill
Cain @ Richard – I still wouldn’t trust Richard in 12-team mixed leagues.
C. Martinez @ Lester
Severino @ Happ
Bradley @ Roark – Playing it safe with Bradley here.
Hendricks @ Kuhl – Tough matchup for Kuhl.
Kluber @ Farmer
Colon @ Conley
Garza @ M. Perez – Perez an intriguing deep-league option.
Smyly @ Shields – Smyly always a little risky though.
Iwakuma @ McHugh – McHugh is on a nice roll.
Adleman @ Garcia
Manaea @ Weaver
