Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 4/24 & 4/25

Nick Pollack ranks every starting pitcher matchup for today's and tomorrow's games.

Here are your morning rankings for today’s starting pitcher options.

It’s not perfect and will be far from the actual results at the end of the day, though it should give guidance for those questioning who to slot into your lineup on a given day.

Note: I’ve made a change moving forward to this daily article. I’ll now be including a second table for tomorrow’s starting pitcher matchups as well, helping everyone get a jump on their nightly pickups. Please note that these matchups are subject to change, though, and there will be times when I have the incorrect pitcher going. I thank you for your future understanding.

Pitchers highlighted in yellow = Possible streaming options.

FS = False Starter where there is an assumed opener actually starting the game.

Red = Postponed.

    Is Kelly worth a stream vs Pitt? (I know he isn’t shaded in yellow)

    If you want to see a clinic in bad base-running check out the top of the second in the Rays v Royals. MLB base-running is generally atrocious – I’d say worse than your average HS – but the Royals just put on a clinic in how not to execute a first and third play today, which will likely be billed as defensive wizardry. It’s like they never practice it or even talk about it… which is how they handle base-running at that level I am pretty sure.
