Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 7/3 & 7/4

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.

    Canning @Tex or Plesac @KC?

  2. AJ says:

    Cal Quantrill goes today, and Lauer tomorrow. Not that anyone can really start Quantrill who isn’t stretched out. Shame because it’s at home vs SF.

  3. Nikolai says:

    Would you drop any of E-Rod, Darvish, or Eflin for Canning ROS (or until either Glasnow/Tallion are off the DL)? 10T League H2H Categories (Nola, C. Smith, Soroka, Flaherty, Gibson, Clevinger are my other pitchers with Glasnow and Tallion on the DL) – should I worry about IP limit on Canning capping his value? Thanks for your awesome daily rankings and SP reviews!

    Should Merrill Kelly be benched tonight vs LAD?

    • Nick Pollack says:

      Sorry I didn’t have to time get to this! I would have said sit, but hopefully the PQS and 1.00 WHIP helped you!

      • jpmags says:

        I rolled the dice, thought he would be knocked out in the 2nd and was somewhat impressed how he was able to induce soft contact from Dodgers afterwards. Yes, 1.00 Whip and QS is ++!

        BTW, what is a realistic return date for Rich Hill? He was placed on 60 Day IL (June 19th) with the earliest return on Aug 20th. Seems that Pitchers with elbow strains take at least 3 months before they return. Thinking about dropping him. What’s your take?

  5. Lee says:

    Actually it is Dinelson Lamet starting for SD on Thursday vs Dodgers. Tough 1st outing. What do you think of using him for that one?

    Heya superb blog! Does running a blog like this take a large amount
    of work? I’ve absolutely no expertise in coding however I had been hoping to start my
    own blog soon. Anyhow, if you have any ideas or tips for new
    blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic however I just wanted to ask.
