Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 4/19 & 4/20

Nick Pollack ranks every starting pitcher matchup for today's and tomorrow's games.

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.

    Are you completely bought in on Caleb Smith?

  • Avatar Mike P says:

    Thoughts on Hyun- Jin Ryu in this start? Is this a Injured List Start? They may only let him go 80 pitches in this one. Could limit his upside. Plus a very strong Brewers offense.

    • Nick Pollack Nick Pollack says:

      He didn’t make a rehab start, so I’d imagine they’ll be limited Ryu a little.

      I’d think about five frames. I’d hold off if I could as the Brewers could mess this up easily, like you mentioned.

  • Avatar Eric says:

    Hey Nick! Any pitchers you would look into streaming on Sunday?

  • Avatar Kyle says:

    Hey, Nick! Interested in your take on Morton @ Boston. He has been sharp so far this season, is backed by a solid defense, and is going against a Boston team that looks like they’d have problems hitting their way out of a wet paper bag.

    holland or lyles which stream do you prefer? thanks

  • Avatar theKraken says:

    So, a player, Tim Anderson, was suspended for language today. Is that a first? That is an irresponsible precedent and an abuse of power. I very much hope that one of these organizations gets sued and some people get fired at some point.
