Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 5/12 & 5/13

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.

There is 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.

    Hey Nick!

    What order would you be stashing these guys in a 12 team with very limited SP options due to deep benches:

    Julio Urias, Luzardo, Gallen, Cease, Keller

    In theory, I could stash 2 of these guys, but 1 is more realistic.


    • Nick Pollack says:

      Urias is the one I’d stash.

      If those are all available, Gallen is next, then Cease. Gallen should be up first.

      • OldMilwaukeePounders says:

        Thanks, Nick! I’ve got Hansel Robles who should be expendable for me since I have 3 other closers and I’m carrying one extra hitter. I should be able to add two of those.

        Out of those names who has the most ace upside? Urias & Luzardo?

      • DongCarlo says:

        Gallen isn’t on the 40 man roster doesn’t this hinder his chances of getting the call sooner rather than later?

    8 Team H2H Points

    I have Clevinger, Taillon, and now Glasnow, all on IL with only 2 spots. Also, have Stanton occupying one.

    Are you dropping any of these guys for a streamer? Or just hold out until Stanton comes back and play one man down? It should be said, that I am currently 5-0, but after today may be 5-1….

    I’m now thinking of naming my first born Mystery.
