Week 12 Starting Pitchers

1. Eric Stults at San Francisco Giants (6/19)

2. Corey Kluber vs. Minnesota Twins (6/22)

3. John Danks at Minnesota Twins (6/20)

4. Ross Detwiler at Philadelphia Phillies (6/18) vs. Colorado Rockies (6/23)

5. Jose Quintana at Houston Astros (6/17) at Kansas City Royals (6/22)

6. Dylan Axelrod at Minnesota Twins (6/18) at Kansas City Royals (6/23)

7. Jeremy Bonderman at Los Angeles Angels (6/18)

Eric Stults has given up 4 runs over his last 23 innings pitched. He will pitch in San Francisco in Week 12. Corey Kluber has had 3 starts this season of 6-plus innings and 1 or less earned runs. He will face the Minnesota Twins in Week 12, as will John Danks. I threw Bonderman on here again, but I know this is too good to be true. Ride the hot arm, but Bonderman might burn you. The other 3 pitchers on the list will all start twice in this upcoming week. Detwiler is the most reliable of the trio. I have a lot of confidence in Axelrod and Quintana in their first starts, but not much when they go against Kansas City.

Week 12 Hitters

Tampa Bay Rays at Boston 3 games / at New York Yankees 4 games

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Colorado Rockies 3 games / vs. Baltimore Orioles 3 games

Mike Carp

Four lefties make up the list for Week 12. Carp has been red hot lately and will see 7 righties. Smith and Brantley will see 6 righties. Rasmus will face Colorado and Baltimore at home. He hit 4 homers in Week 11.
