Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 8/11 & 8/12

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.

    Can we get a Civale GIF breakdown?

    I’ve been skeptical of how his minor league numbers would translate but he has some shades of Bieber with how he fills the strikezone.

    I noticed something interesting about Clevinger today. He has faced almost entirely weak offenses this year. Only two could ever be classified as good and that is MIN twice. I don’t personally consider MIN a juggernaut despite the season. In any case he is going to face his first real tests in BOS and NYY. It will be interesting to see how he fares vs major league hitters. I noticed this looking ahead at playoff matchups… makes me a bit nervous.
