Sit/Start Week 26: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 9/26-10/5

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

Welcome back to Sit/Start, where we review all expected starting pitcher matchups for the week ahead. I will be carrying over the ranking system from last year. There are three labels: StartMaybe, and Sit.

Starts are surefire 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 than 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, a healthy Jacob deGrom at the Pittsburgh Pirates. A Sit-1 is a pitcher who, under no circumstances, should you consider starting.

This is the final week! Go out, and win those championships! It has been a pleasure writing these for you week after week, and I hope to see you next year.

For some housekeeping, I will try my best to update these at least once after they go live, but there are a ton of schedule and rotation shuffling. I apologize ahead of time if something is not current in the table below.

Without further ado, let’s see how your rotation is shaping up for this week. Feel free to question my rankings in the comments, and let’s discuss!

    Is Javier going to be out of the Houston rotation this final week? Need to decide if I sit him, Montgomery or Pressly in favor of the 2-start Springs.

  2. Donny McDonerson says:

    You have Ranger Suarez listed twice. One of those should be Nola’s start on Wed 9/28 @ ChC

  3. Travis Brown says:

    Not sure Perez is a two starter. ESPN has him going wednesday for some reason
