Inter-league Weekend Pitching Matchups

We can finally watch AL pitchers try to hit this weekend as Interleague play has arrived. The next three days has a jam packed schedule that pits the best of the NL vs the AL’s finest and the fantasy implications are through the roof. Unfortunately if you drafted your pitchers correctly (splitting up your pitchers between leagues and divisions) you’ll have teammates facing one another. At that point you can only hope for both pitchers to go deep into the game with minimal runs.

A look at the weekends key matchups:

Zack Greinke in his fourth start back from the DL looks to have another quality start against Jason Hammel and the Rockies. Greinke has won his last two starts but still posts a 6.60 ERA coming into tonights game.

After struggling in his first four starts, Brad Penny has won four of his last five and faces Pittsburgh tonight. He’s definitely a last second pick up if available.

Jason Marquis, (5-1) and still available in 75% of leagues, heads to the mound in a toss up game against the Orioles young ace Jake Arrieta. (5-1  4.03 avaiable in 60% of leagues)

Homer Bailey is still available in 30% of leagues and holds a 3-0 record coming into Saturday’s matchup vs. Indians stud Josh Tomlin 5-1 / 2.56.

If Ubaldo Jimenez can’t hit the strike zone on Sunday Im going to trade him, even though coaches promise its a mechanical problem that he has. Sunday also closes the Red Sox/Cubbies series that hasn’t happened since 1918.

On that note I hope the Yankees continue to rake and sweep the subway series. Here is the rest of the schedule and matchups:
