Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 8/7 & 8/8

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.

    Nick – you mentioned on your podcast that you plan to move to rest of season rankings based on schedule. Several leagues have trade deadline on the 15th of August. Do you think you could at a minimum give a teaser as to what pitchers will move up the most based on ROS before the 15th? Would be helpful for some fantasy deadline moves. Keep up the good work!

      Hey Steve!

      I’d want to, but the problem is that teams’ rotations shift plenty over the course of a month – even the weekly List I’ll have out will change drastically each week!

      I’ll make a note in one of the podcasts which teams look to have an overall beneficial schedule vs. detrimental schedule in September – I’ll save that for the OTC next week – but otherwise, I fear that I could give you misinformation if making those direct assessments now.
