Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 6/18 & 6/19

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.

    Strahm is a warrior, starting back to back games like that.

  2. Tazer says:

    Eflin is listed on both days as well.

  3. Bob says:

    I look forward to your daily reports and I especially like your weekly sit/start/maybe pitcher recommendations. Why not add a sit/start/maybe column to your daily pitcher table.
    Just a thought.
