Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 5/1 & 5/2

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.

    Great addition this year, Nick. I like the highlighted streamers, too. Let me run another potential feature past you: a heavy line between “start” and “maybe” pitchers for each day and another one between “maybe” and “sit.” Thanks for all that you and your fellow writers do for us junkies each day!
