This next batch of pitchers are guys who are hit-and-miss with their starts. They could come up huge for your team or implode on the mound. Play them at your own risk.
Clayton Richard, San Diego: 4/29 @Chicago Cubs, 5/4 vs. Arizona
Richard's string of solid starts was broken up this week against Milwaukee, where he gave up six earned runs in 1.2 innings. He's the epitome of high risk/reward.
Ubaldo Jimenez, Cleveland: 4/29 @Kansas City, 5/4 vs. Minnesota
Jimenez remains a fantasy albatross, and it's probably safe to say he's never going to return to ace-form. He's still capable of a great start here and there, and Minnesota at home is a good matchup.
Edinson Volquez, San Diego: 4/30 @Chicago Cubs, 5/5 vs. Arizona
Volquez has strung together two very good starts, but when he struggles there's no one wilder in baseball. The matchups make this a tough call.
Edwin Jackson, Chicago Cubs: 4/30 vs. San Diego, 5/5 vs. Cincinnati
Jackson's strikeouts have been up this season, but so have his walks. As long as Cincinnati's lineup is struggling this could be a big week for him.
Wade Davis, Kansas City: 4/29 vs. Cleveland, 5/5 vs. Chicago White Sox
Wade Davis has been off to a hot start this season, but his pitch count remains a problem. He only gave up three runs in his last start, but it came across just 3.2 innings of work.
