Standard League Pickups:

Wily Peralta, Brewers:  Peralta still has not given up more than three runs in a start, and is posting a nice 2.17 ERA.  He won’t rack up the strikeouts as fast as Fernandez, but hey, who does?

Nathan Eovaldi, Marlins: Eovaldi becomes the de-facto ace if Fernandez misses the rest of the year.  He has a tendency to be wild at times, but his overall numbers (2.86 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, 48K in 50.1 innings) are still very good.  He is as suitable of a substitute as you will find on the wire.

Drew Smyly, Tigers: It looks like Detroit is finally going to leave him in the rotation, so he is worth a look.  He does a good job of limiting baserunners, but does not have the strikeout prowess of Fernandez.
