To restate my rules for my picks it will be guys that are owned in less than half of espn leagues. I tend to favor pitchers with good K/BB ratio more so than ERA and win potential.
Jacob Turner @ Arizona (8.1% owned)
His walk rate has been a little high since being called up but facing the worst offense yet since being called up.
I am in a shallower league with only 3 add/drops a week so I am going with
Mike Leake Vs. Pittsburgh (88% owned)
he has been pretty good in the last few starts with 21/3 K/BB over his last four starts in ~26 IP. He also has the benefit of a 2 start week against decent matchups and is scheduled @ Arizona on saturday.
Alfredo Figaro VS. Houston (0.4% owned) Has not had real high K totals but gets a great K potential in Houston and also had very good control over his starts this season since moving from the bullpen with only 1 walk in 4 starts.
Joe Blanton Vs. Seattle Has been getting hit around quite a bit lately but has had past success against the Mariners and has also had a very good K/BB over the last 4 starts with a 22/1 K/BB over the last 3 starts.
Will try to check back in soon with more picks.
I'd steer clear of Turner pitching @ARI. I like Vargas at home vs. SEA or Bud Norris at home vs. White Sox.
I'd take Blanton at home vs. SEA over Figaro. I'd take Hughes at home vs. Dodgers before Figaro as well.
