Morning Read: At this point how can I not talk about Luis Gil? I know it's just two starts and small samples are a fickle thing but why not look, right? In yesterday's start, Gil finished with an overall 34 CSW rate. He mainly leaned on his four-seam and slider as throwing just two pitches seemed to be enough. Don't be fooled though, his changeup seems to be serviceable and it gives him a three-pitch arsenal. The funny thing is that he uses his fastball for whiffs and both breaking balls for weak contact. In the small sample we have, he seems to be a legitimate starter that could be useful for the rest of the season. But again, small samples are a fickle thing.
* I will be on vacation starting Saturday 8/7 until Tuesday 8/17. I will try my best to update the chart when possible but if not I will be doing this article every day.*

Shallow League Option: Zach Thompson it is.
Deep League Option: It's either Alec Mills or Carlos Hernandez. Hernandez control issues scare me against the Yankees so Mills it is.
