Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 8/16 & 8/17

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.

One response to “Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 8/16 & 8/17”

  1. Wes says:

    Nick, I’m in a league with Wins, QS, K, WHIP, ERA. Should I take a chance that the Royals solve Thor and therefore pickup Mike Montgomery for the win?

    Or do I got Vince V. and hope that the Tatisless Padres provide him with the easy win.

    I’m currently up one win and down one QS. I have Hendricks tonight and he has Porcello/Corbin.
