Gorzy was doing nice work against lesser teams, but he's been roughed up by contenders his last two times out. After facing the Reds and Cards in consecutive starts, he'll get the Pirates next time out. That's a better matchup, but he's a borderline play in NL-only leagues.

Things don't get any easier next week with a tough matchup against the Cardinals.
