Sit/Start Week 16: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 7/23 – 7/29

Here's a giant table of every starting pitcher matchup for Week 16, telling you which pitchers should get in your lineup or stick on your bench.

Every Sunday 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 circumstantial and dependent on your needs in a 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 16 start from 7/23 – 7/29:

Note: There is a lot of confusion about rotations this week with rainouts and injuries. These matchups are subject to change.

  1. E says:

    Arrieta is a start vs the Dodgers but Nola only a maybe!?!

  2. Taylor says:

    Max Fried vs Miami on Wednesday. What ya got?

  3. Kevin says:

    Man, start Ray vs. the Cubs? I’m on the verge of dropping him in my 10 team league. He’s been getting hammered most of the year. Why do you still believe?

  4. David says:

    Robbie Ray against the Cubs has to be the maybe-est ‘start’ ever.

    • Nick Pollack says:

      Yeah, I’m completely fine with playing that one safe and I probably should have listed that one as a “maybe”.

      I’m not ready to give up on Ray though, and even against the Cubs and his recent performance, I still think it’s worth your while to chase his ceiling there.

  5. Half Man Half Bear-Pig says:

    Buehler is expected to get the start Wednesday. I don’t know what the plan is for the rest of the staff, but I would guess Hill pitches Thursday and Kershaw on Friday.

  6. boba fatt says:

    VV or Castillo ROS?

  7. dissapointmets says:

    SP Roundup after his last start you weren’t high on Rodon but here he’s a start. Confident in him @ LAA?

  8. Shoe says:

    Thanks for this column, Nick. It looks like Gibson is starting on Thurs. at Boston. How does that change his sit/start status? Which start would you pick out of J. Gray vs. HOU, Quintana @STL, and Gibson @BOS?

  9. Martin says:

    Ever thought about keeping this updated throughout the week? It’s a phenomenal resource, and I would love to have it as starts get moved around…

    • Sherbs says:

      Martin, have been thinking of this too and meaning to ask. Would be awesome if it was updated! Appreciate everyone who works on this site, it’s amazing!

  10. Brandon says:

    Noticed it says that Jaime Barria is pitching for STL on the 28th, just wanted to point that out. Also is he a sit against Seattle on the 28th?

  11. Sherbs says:

    Great site Nick, thanks for all you guys do!
    Was wondering about some streaming options for tomorrow (sunday) as I have too many on the DL and need help. Looking at Wheeler vs. Musgrove, Elfin vs. Castillo, Buchholz vs. Lucchesi…….all of these guys are available.
