Approaching the announcement of the final All-Star Game selections, none of these guys below are going to be mistaken for superstars. Doesn't mean they cannot help you wrap up Week 14 with a possible victory over the rest of your league, or your weekly opponent in a H2H league.

Remember, while these match ups are accurate as of publication, but things happen. Weather, injury or managerial decisions can frequently interfere with plans, so remain vigilant. Also, remember that any of the starters listed below are owned in less than 50% of fantasy leagues, and thus should be available to you on the wire.
Felix Doubront BOS @ LAA C.J. Wilson
Aaron Harang SEA @ CIN Mat Latos
Jacob Turner MIA @ StL Jake Westbrook
I would be happy to start any of these 3 SPs this Friday. I like Doubront's K potential best, but Harang has been solid, too, for his latest starts. It'd be nice if he could rack up some more Ks, and pitch deeper into games, but his performance is acceptable if not exciting. Turner was a top pick of the Tigers before he was sent to Miami (Florida, then, actually), so the pedigree was there. It is nice to see him blossoming in the Florida sunshine, and with his rotation mates Eovaldi and Fernandez, Miami is putting together a nice pitching staff.

Nate Eovaldi MIA @ StL Joe Kelly
Stephen Fife LAD @ SF Chad Gaudin
Chad Gaudin SF vs LAD Stephen Fife
Joe Kelly StL vs MIA Nate Eovaldi
Charlie Morton PIT @ CHC Edwin Jackson
Speaking of the Miami rotation, Eovaldi is putting up nice numbers of late. Again, more Ks would be nice, but it is hard to aruge with his peripherals. Fife and Gaudin face off against one another, and I could see my way to using either or both if I needed to find another SP to round out my weekly stats. Same thing with Kelly facing Eovaldi. I do like the Cardinals chances to prevail more than the Marlins, but both SPs are worth considering. Finally, I do like Morton as a Saturday option, especially facing off against the Cubs and Jackson. Morton is coming off a rain shortened stint against the Brewers, and with only having pitched 2 innings, should be good to go deep with any luck on Saturday.

Robbie Erlin SD @ WAS Stephen Strasburg
Jeanmar Gomez PIT @ CHC Chris Rusin
Jeremy Hefner NYM @ MIL Wily Peralta
Jonathan Pettibone PHI vs ATL Kris Medlen
Of these four SPs, I like Hefner best. Doesn't mean I wouldn't start the others, but the match up for Erlin and Pettibone leave much to be desired. Gomez facing the Cubs is sweet, since I don't think their offense should frighten anyone. Pettibone has the best K potential after Hefner, although only Gomez lacks true strikeout potential.
