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

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.

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.

    Why so down on Hendricks @ CHW tomorrow? Enduring effects of the DLH because he had a rain-shortened outing last start? Might need one more start this week in H2H and my biggest needs would be avoiding BBs and a L… would be deciding between Giolito v. CHC tonight, Bauer @ CIN tomorrow or Hendricks @ CHW tomorrow. Hendricks seems like the best bet.

    • J says:

      For those specific needs I think you’re dead on. Giolito has 3+ walks in 3 of his last 4 games and that’s a tough matchup. Bauer’s had walk issues this year too and I don’t trust the Indians offense. Hendricks has only walked more than 2 batters once this year (his first start of the season) and has walked 0 or 1 in 11 of 15 starts, and the matchup against Nova is prime to avoid an L.

  2. Scott says:

    Nick, I think the dates in the headline have been off the past couple of days. Should be 7/6 and 7/7, right?
