Here are your morning rankings for today’s starting pitcher options.
It’s not perfect and will be far from the actual results at the end of the day, though it should give guidance for those questioning who to slot into your lineup on a given day.
Note: I’ve made a change moving forward to this daily article. I’ll now be including a second table for tomorrow’s starting pitcher matchups as well, helping everyone get a jump on their nightly pickups. Please note that these matchups are subject to change, though, and there will be times when I have the incorrect pitcher going. I thank you for your future understanding.
Pitchers highlighted in yellow = Possible streaming options.
FS = False Starter where there is an assumed opener actually starting the game.
Red = Postponed.

Why are you so confident in Turnbull and to a lesser extent Gray today? Marlins have been hitting well.
It’s always relative to the pack and Turnbull has one of the best matchups against the Tribe + the ceiling to take advantage of the highest K rate lineup in the majors.
Gray is hosting the Marlins after getting into a groove last time out. Again, the arms below are also highly questionable.
Soooo is Sonny Gray finally (Maybe?) breaking out? 6 K’s through 4 innings…
CLE looks absolutely terrible lately. JoRam is a shell of himself at the moment.
Love the addition of tomorrows starters Nick
Thanks Derek! It’ll be there moving forward.
Agreed. Very helpful.
+1 General comment – your site is FANtastic! Love the daily pod, on the corner pod, firesides, etc. It’s changed how I strategize and play. Keep it up!
Turnbull or Keller ROS In AL only league with no bench and must start pitcher every game?
Thanks for adding list of tomorrow’s starters. Very helpful
I’d go Turnbull, Keller is a little safer if you are truly locked in for every start ROS.
Damn, wish the change happened to this article yesterday. Went with Jon Gray today over Turnbull and Eovaldi.
At least it helps me with tomorrow’s streamer. Paddack over Pineda it is!
Those are pretty close, honestly. Gray could easily have the better start between them.
I have to bench one of the following: PabLo; Burnes; Turnbull or; Bieber.
I’m assuming Bieber is as good as it gets to start but who would you recommend benching from the other three? Thanks again for all that you do!
I had Buehler and Pablo in the early games, pushing my year long ERA up to a whopping 4.80. I don’t think I’m gonna trust Eovaldi in the nightcap, he’s somehow outperformed his FIP to this point, with his 8 ERA.
