Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups For Week 15 (7/14 – 7/23): Who To Sit/Start PART 1

Every weekend 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.

MAJOR NOTE: This week is a little different as plenty of teams haven’t revealed their full rotations out of the break just yet. Additionally, we have a 10-day week as opposed to a 7-day week, making it more difficult to predict the proper matchups. Because there are so many shakeups, I will be doing just these weekend games today and will have a Monday-Sunday table come out Sunday evening as well. Sorry for the disarray, but it’s the best method to avoid confusion for all.

Here’s the table containing every weekend start from 7/14 – 7/16:

Thanks Nick, I’m firing up my Duffy!

Also wondering about Taillon vs. STL today (he’s starting, not Kuhl). I’m thinking he’s almost a set and forget type pitcher, so definitely roll him out there vs. the Cards?
