Sit/Start Week 14: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 7/1-7/7

Max Freeze ranks every starting pitcher matchup for the week ahead (7/1-7/7).

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’ve recently changed the ranking system to make designations a little clearer. Here’s an overview. 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-10Meanwhile, 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 are situations 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 14 start from 7/1 – 7/7:

    I have German coming off of the dl. Do I drop Hudson and activate him for the game today or wait till next week?
    My other pitchers are keuchel, Tanaka, fried, minor and maeda.

  3. Steve says:

    I kept telling myself to bench Soroka tonight because of the Phillies offence. I should have listened to my gut.
