Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 7/16 & 7/17

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.

    After Canning’s recent blowup are you favoring Chirinos, Stripling, or Jon Gray? The loss of 45 might stick with the young Canning and next year might be the breakout.

  2. baseballbanter says:


    choose two of these matchups:

    logan allen @ marlins
    zach plesac home vs tigers
    ponce de leon home vs pirates
