    Hey Nick! Why so low on Karns? I realize he hasn’t pitched much over the last couple years but seems like he could have success against the lowly Jays. Thoughts?

    • Nick Pollack says:

      The Orioles are easing him back into the rotation, showcased by using him as a 2 IP opener last week. I don’t expect a long outing at all.

  2. Micah says:

    Trevor Richards was a ‘maybe’ in the Sit/Start Week 1: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 4/1-4/7 but he’s ranked higher in this list than Gibson who was listed as a ‘start’? Please explain.

    (And thanks so much for all the great content!)

      Hey Micah!

      Max Freeze handles the Sit/Start articles for the site this year, there are sure to be a few differences in opinion through the year.

      For me, the two are incredibly close today, go with your gut!

    General question on the Today’s SP rankings… is there a line you would draw where you would keep in your lineup vs bench a SP? I have Holland on my roster but wondering if I should bench or not based on matchups… OR is everyone on your Today’s SP rankings someone you would start?

    Bizzarro season continues as Kluber is getting crushed and Nola is gone after 3. Perhaps we should invert the list?
