Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 5/6 & 5/7

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.

  1. John says:

    Just a heads up, Gausman is starting for Atlanta today.

  2. Drew says:

    Need to start 2 of these guys in a weekly league: anibal, Duffy, Felix Hernandez, junis. Could also do one and start either Diego Castillo or Stephenson but falling behind in Ks and Wins

  3. Handy Afterall says:

    Pretty sure chirinos is not pitching Tuesday, as he pitched 7 innings Saturday.

  4. Byung Yung Slim says:

    Any news about Jesus Luzardo? I assume no, but how soon would you add him considering he does not even have “IL” eligibility? I added him yesterday as a stash because I just couldn’t wait any longer. I’m sure he wont be available until the first or second week of June but the Pitcher selection on our waiver wire is garbage right now. Too soon of an add??

    • Ryan says:

      No. I waited too long in my league, which has 4 DL spots. This helps a bit when stashing but he’s gone. And I wish he was on my roster. I did hear today that Puk was facing batters. Shhhhh

  5. ALLEYBOY760 says:

    Jeffery Rodriguez Tuesday vs CHW has got to be a good play, right? He’s ranked super low here. #24

  6. Sean says:

    Where does Means fall on today’s list after yesterday’s postponement?
