I personally like Ibanez and Hill here. Ibanez and Martinez are close to each other, but like Ibanez here......

I see him as a person to play in good matchups, Washington was about as good as it can get, he had done really well against them in the small sample he had seen them in the past and they have a pretty weak offense. Last season they struck out more than any other team in all of baseball. His next start is against St. Louis and they have been crushing. I would watch closely if he can handle them he is definitely worth a strong consideration for a regular spot in people rotations. But other than that just pick him up next time he faces a struggling line up.

I'am in the same boat. Really intrigued by this guy, and hard to go off of just 1 start, but he did very well. As stated it was a poor hitting Nationals team. I'm going to keep an eye on his next 2 starts, and try and act fast, but smart. If someone else in my league snags him before I do I'm gonna be pissed, but playing the waiting game.

I am liking Chen facing Oakland this Week though. Looked pretty good against the Angels and has done well against oakland in the past.

Hitting wise, anyone like Jose Altuve? Or am I better off grabbing JD Martinez?

Go with the hot hand Matinez is doing ok thus far, Altuve did get 2 hits today but will be sitting against lefties which i don't like. My vote is martinez

Hill does already have 2 homeruns though..........

Is Aroldis chapman worth an add or go for hector Santiago instead? I only want to use 2 of my 4 moves now since I always kick myself for running out midweek.
