Sit/Start Week 13: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 6/21-6/27

Lucas Zenobi scores every starting pitcher matchup for the week ahead.

Welcome back to Sit/Start, where every Saturday here at Pitcher List, we review all expected starting pitcher matchups for the week ahead.  I will be carrying over Max Freeze’s ranking system from last year.

There are three labels: StartMaybe, and Sit. Starts are sure-fire starts for those particular pitchers. This does not mean that they are incapable of having a bad outing, but I consider them more likely than not to have a good outing if they are designated as a Start.

However, the degree of confidence I have in a pitcher to have a strong outing is judged by their number in the tier. For example, I am much more confident that a Start-10 will have a good outing over a Start-7, even though I expect both to perform well.

The same goes for the other tiers. Maybes are starts that are a bit riskier, but depending on your league size or roster requirements, they may need to be used. A Start-10 is a pitcher who I believe will almost definitely have a strong outing, for example, Shane Bieber at the Detroit Tigers. A Sit-1 is a pitcher who under no circumstances you should consider starting.

There are massive changes happening at starting pitcher from sticky substances to pitchers coming off of the IL. There’s a lot of change in perception here. Take a look below, and see how your rotation shapes up this week. Feel free to question my rankings in the comments, and let’s discuss!

    Darvish pitches today, not Snell.

    • Eric says:

      This looks like Lucas was using an old probables list from last week. Lots has changed since then. You’d expect an article published today would have at least used the current probables list.

  2. Chris says:

    Rogers is listed as going Wednesday v Blue Jays
