Sit/Start Week 3: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 4/16 – 4/22

Here's a giant table of every starting pitcher matchup this week, 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 3 start from 4/16 – 4/22:

  1. Michael G says:

    Much as I love The List on Mondays, this is my favorite post of the week. Thanks Nick!

  2. Mike says:

    Rich Hill? Darvish? Not sure I see every pitcher here.

  3. Grenache says:

    If I followed your recommendations I would have 1 starter 1 maybe and 6 sits!

  4. Erik Benson says:

    Hey Nick,

    Great article as always! I was wondering if you might entertain the thought of formatting this differently. Its hard to distinguish when a week ends and a new one begins. Also great job on the podcast, everything is coming along nicely. Keep it up!

    • Nick Pollack says:

      Hey Erik!

      Do you mean each day? I add a blank row on purpose to help separate them. How else would you want it done?

      • Peter says:

        They could be separated slightly more. It’s definitely nitpicking but I see what he’s saying. Appreciate all your work, Nick!!

  5. B Hoobs says:

    This is a Fantastic list. Thanks a lot Nick. I know this is a bit off the list topic but would love to know which of my pitcher(s) you’d advise to trade right now. I am looking to upgrade at a hitter’s spot. Berrios, C. Martinez, J. Taillon, Luke Weaver, Rich Hill, Manaea, Newcomb, Roark with Danny Salazar and Pomeranz on the DL right now.

  6. Robert says:

    12-team mixed H2H Points, MAX 7 starts per week. I’ve got DeGrom, Nola, Castillo, and Paxton all starting twice, Maeda, Arrieta, and Richards (who I would assume you would start on 4/21 vs SFG) are also all starts on your list…

    Came here for help with my decision damn you… (Love what you guys do despite your reluctance to actually break down Ohtani performances instead of just saying you don’t trust him to stay healthy before moving on).

    • Nick Pollack says:

      Ha! We’ve only seen two starts from Ohtani thus far and I’ve moved him into the Top 20 for now, but I keep mentioning the injury history on purpose because it’s the most important part! There isn’t anything new I can provide on his stuff – it’s great, y’all know that – but I feel it’s my duty to remind everyone of the risks he presents.

      I’m sorry I didn’t see this yesterday, but I would have probably told you to roll with those four of deGrom, Nola, Castillo, and Paxton. Possibly switching Richards for Castillo if you couldn’t get both of Castillo’s starts, but it would have been very close.

      • Robert says:

        Went with all 4. You know how that went. Damnit Icarus

        Guess I can count on a solid breakdown on the “slow pitch” Wednesday am after Ohtani’s impressive 66 pitch, 2 IP, 3ER effort tonight.

        It’s like 65°, I’m surprised they let him blow on his hand so much while on the mound.

        • Nick Pollack says:

          There will be so much to talk about tomorrow morning…

          Icarus really did some damage last night, sorry fella.

  7. Josh says:

    Any updates to this now that Yonny Chirinos is the TBR starter for today?

    Love all of your work as always, Nick!

  8. James says:

    Is Drew Pomeranz a start vs Oakland on Friday?

  9. JerryOnDrums says:

    Hey Nick! FYI, Yankees website is showing The Bear as the probable pitcher for Saturday. Which two would you start the rest of this week out of .Edu, Clevinger, Minor, and The Bear? Thanks man!

  10. J.C. Mosier says:

    You had Marcus as a “start” against K.C., but he was moved to today against the Yankees. Does that make him a “maybe”?
