Sit/Start Week 8: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 5/21 – 5/27

Here's a giant table of every starting pitcher matchup for Week 8, 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 8 start from 5/21 – 5/27:

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