Sit/Start Week 11: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 6/10-6/16

Max Freeze covers and ranks all starting pitcher matchups for week 11 (6/10-6/16).

Welcome to Sit/Start where, every Saturday here at Pitcher List, I review all expected starting pitcher matchups for the week ahead. There are three labels: StartMaybe, and Sit. Outings marked with a Maybe are contingent and dependent on your needs in a standard 5×5 Wins 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. I’m trying something new this week, so let me know what you think about it in the comments, suggestions are always welcome. I’m implementing a scoring system (1-10) next to each designation. 10 is a top tier start option and 1 is a bottom of the barrel option. Here are the labels: Start 7-10, Maybe 4-6, and Sit 1-3. For example, Max Scherzer at home against the Marlins would look like this Start-10. Meanwhile, Ivan Nova against the Yankees in New York would have this designation Sit-1.

You’ll notice a few question marks next to some of the names. These are either probable starters that have not been confirmed or is a situation where the team will use the bullpen to fill innings. As with the past couple Sit/Start articles, spots in the rotation where a potential opener may be used will be listed as Opener/potential long man. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 11 start from 6/10 – 6/16:

  1. Brad R says:

    Canning got bumped to Monday. Still probably a sit though? If you had to give it a # the 4-5 range?

    • Max Freeze says:

      Yeah, I like the start against TBR a little better, so you nailed it. He’d be a 4 or 5 at home against OAK who is much better offensively on the road and seems to be at full strength.

      • Brad R says:

        I went by strict numbers and started Eichoff over Canning (lower team and trying to be under the 200 start limit after a heavy week last week)

        Yikes. Not an indictment against your rankings which i think were fair. Sometimes you just gotta go with your gut and ride your guy against the tough team

  2. Kyle Weber says:

    Hi Max, just wanted to let you know that I love the new ranking system you’ve implemented! I think it is especially helpful for the “Maybe” category. Keep up the good work!

    • Max Freeze says:

      Thank you Kyle, that’s great to hear! I appreciate you checking out the article and the site!

  3. StatsDontLie says:

    Just to follow along with the other commentor, big fan of the new system and the added granularity. Really helps provide some color when one has to make a borderline decision. Great stuff.

    • Max Freeze says:

      Thank you StatsDontLie! glad the hear there’s been some positive feedback, hopefully this helps you out now & in the future.


    The New ranking system is great.

  5. Kevin M says:

    Looks like Skaggs was bumped to the 13th @TB. Does that impact him at all?

    • Max Freeze says:

      Eh, he’s still a maybe. Probably give him a 5 but TB is also a tough opponent, so I don’t love it

  6. james rogers says:

    I like the new numbers format. It particularly helps in the maybe category.
    I would also use the sign @ to designate where the game is being held. I know that is important to me, especially at Coors.

  7. Brandon Tully says:

    Ranking system is a keeper. Love it!

    • Max Freeze says:

      Thanks Brandon, I’m glad you like it! Hopefully it will make decisions a little bit easier going forward.

  8. Adrian Barker says:

    It looks like Woodruff is going vs the Astros on Wednesday instead of Peralta. Is Woodruff still a maybe?

  9. Brandon Scott says:

    I do like that you put a number system now on start or sit… it really gives you a better idea to where that pitcher stands… Lets Go!

  10. Max Freeze says:

    Thanks Brandon, that’s great to hear! Here’s hoping it helps going forward.

  11. Craig Christensen says:

    Max, Can you add full names to this list? That way those of us who use FantasyPros Google Chrome player plug-in can see who is and isn’t available? Also how often during the week do you update this or is just a one-time post? Thanks!!
