Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 5/2 & 5/3

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.

    Hey Nick!

    Sorry to bother, i’m desperate for your advice here. Should I drop Canning or Weaver to stream Turnbull this weekend? I currently have Weaver/Canning but I’m going to need this Turnbull start to make up some ground so I wasn’t sure if I should drop Weaver (who I wanted to hold but has a bad matchup in coors) or Canning (who looked exciting but no guarantee he stays in the bigs or puts it together).

    I very much appreciate in advance any advice!

    • Nick Pollack says:

      Depends completely on your league, but in the super short term, Canning vs. the Tigers and Orioles is more appealing to me than Coors + Braves.

  2. Rick says:

    Mike Minor or Reynaldo Lopez ROS? Minor seems more safe, maybe, but Lopez seems like he has the potential to be a stud.

    • Nick Pollack says:

      I think we’ll get a better idea this weekend if Reynaldo really figured it out. My gut says he’ll struggle –> Minor ROS over him.
