Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 5/8 & 5/9

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. Zach says:

    Do you like Strahm today or Musgrove tomorrow more?

  2. Micah says:

    QS league and I’m right at the games started pace. Boyd is a definite start today but what are your odds Ray and Flaherty provide quality starts? I’m planning to start Flaherty but leaning towards leaving Ray on the bench while he figures things out.

    Thanks for all your great work!

  3. Perfect Game says:

    Canning or Weaver in a standard roto that uses QS?
