Here’s who I like — and don’t:

Must start
Gotta go with Clayton Kershaw, King Felix and C.C. if you have them. … Pat Corbin is rolling. He’ll get a good test vs. the Braves. … I like Derek Holland vs. the A’s. … Jeremy Guthris is 5-0 and faces the struggling Angels. … Matt Moore and John Lackey meet, with the edge going to Moore. … I think Jake Peavy is a good start against the Twins. … Doug Fister meets the Astros.

Good start
I picked up Julio Teheran in my daily league.  … Homer Baily should get a win vs. the Marlins. … The Jays are struggling big time, so I’d take a shot on Barry Zito. … I like Chris Tillman today, but don’t overlook Andrew Cashner, he could be a sleeper. … I’m trying to get out in front on the Scott Kazmir train. He’s risky, but I picked him up in my daily league, too. … Kevin Correia is 4-2 with a 3.09 ERA, so he has that going for him.

Neutral
I’m not on board with Dan Haren yet. … Carlos Villanueva has a very nice ERA but no wins to show for it. … Ricky Nolasco needs to pitch for a better team. … R.A. Dickey hasn’t found his form. … The Pirates just don’t know how to beat the Brewers, so I’m leery with Jeff Locke. That said, Kyle Loshe is no lock for a win. … Jonathan Pettibone has some nice upside, but this matchup doesn’t look that enticing. … I’m not a Bartolo Colon fan, but he’s having a good year. … Jason Vargas doesn’t do much for me.

Avoid
I’ll wait on John Gast before I consider starting him. … I won’t give Dillon Gee a chance today vs. Cards. … I’m not on board with Jeff Francis. … Don’t start an Astros pitcher.
