Sit/Start Week 5: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 4/29-5/5

Max Freeze covers every starting pitcher matchup for week 5 (4/29-5/5)

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 circumstantial and dependent on your needs in a standard 5×5 Wins 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. 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 pitchers who may be subject to an opener. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together. With a little more data to work off of, I’ve been able to distinguish more starts/sits and fewer options are listed as maybe.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 5 start from 4/29 – 5/5:

    Looks like Gio goes again on the 3rd instead of Davies for MIL.

  2. Justin Nichols says:

    With Jorge Lopez getting pushed to @DET on 5/3, does that adjust your decision on him?

  3. Craig C says:

    Do you update these throughout the week or is this a one-time post?
