Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 4/29 & 4/30

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.

    Hi Nick – Thanks for everything. Question on Mikolas? Just HR bad luck or a different pitcher than last year?
    Trade I was offered:
    My Murphy, Mikolas, Chavis for his Bryant, S. Gray, Gardner? I need some OF help. 13 team roto, 5 OF.

  2. Jackson says:

    What are you expecting from Canning? Worth stashing him on the bench with 2 starts lined up for next week (hopefully)?

  3. Tony the Pony says:

    Hi Nick, I’m seeing a lot of disagreement out there over who’s pitching when. e.g. Are the Tigers going with Turnbull or Ross on Tuesday? Are the D-backs going with Kelly or Greinke on Tuesday? Anyone got a clue on these?
