National League - FAAB - 4/13/14

Starting Pitching:

Tom Koehler: With Jacob Turner going on the disabled list, Koehler will not have any starts skipped with breaks on the schedule. Koehler has permitted just three extra base hits in 2014 while working the edges of the zone. He doesn't get many swings and misses or strikeouts, but thus far, has done well in limiting damage by not getting himself into trouble. Mixed: No; NL: $2.

Juan Nicasio: Something strange is a foot at the gas-n-sip on Blake Street in Denver. Nicasio has a 24% strikeout rate to start the season; his previous high was 21% in 2012. He has permitted just three extra base hits over his first two starts, both of which have been in Coors Field. Not to mention, he has walked just three of the first 50 batters he has faced, a rate he hasn't seen since 2011. This is very interesting. Mixed: $1; NL: $5.
