Expected SP Schedules Weeks 2-3: We Are So Back

EVERY starter on EVERY team broken down!

So that was a painful week of baseball. Several prominent pitchers have gone down due to arm injury already, and we’ve only just begun. That could put an early dagger into some fantasy rosters, which makes knowing streaming options all the more important in the coming weeks.

Beyond the injuries there have been some very interesting performances early in the season. A Ronel Blanco no-hitter wasn’t on my bingo card for the season, but how awesome that it happened! Baseball is back.

As the season goes, this Expected SP article will do its best to help provide insight on what pitchers could help. Who has a two start week? Who is facing a favorable lineup? Who is struggling, but might be due for a turnaround? Among other content at PitcherList, this article is meant to help guide fantasy baseball managers through the handling of their rotations.

In order to keep consistency, the offensive rankings below will be pulled and updated weekly from Nick’s most recent SP Streamer article.


Nick’s Loose Team Offense Rankings (Updated 4/1)


Here’s a key for a few terms you may encounter below:

(OFF) means the team has an off-day before they play that team. 

(DH) indicates a doubleheader that day.

SPOT STARTER should be obvious, but this pitcher will only start once.

??? represents an unclear rotational spot, and the notes will explain options.

For the dedicated returning readers, the glossary has not changed. It’s paramount to remember that things can change in baseball at the drop of a hat. And they’ll change often. MLB teams do not care who we think is supposed to be their starting pitcher that day, they want to win ball games. I will do my best to be as accurate as possible, but guaranteed things will change after this article is posted.

    The colors are all wrong in your matchups based on the key at the top.

    Glad to see this article is back! It looks like the chart colors do not match Nick’s chart.

    Amazing work but minor gripe. Can you format this so the matchups are ordered chronologically by date next time. We don’t need to know who the actual ace, 2, 3, 4, and 5 of each team’s rotation are. It works better when you just line everything up by date because it’s easier to adjust if a guy gets bumped or there’s a rain out or something. Thank you for your work. This is extremely helpful.

    This really needs to be edited. Most of the team charts have a lot of incorrect information. I tell you this because I care, the Expected SP Schedule is one of my favorite features of the site! But the way this page is right now is basically unusable.

    I agree! Rockies are a dark red on the ROAD!?!?
    Dodgers are dark green at home (or anywhere???)
    Is everything just opposite???
