Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 6/17 & 6/18

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.

There is 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.

    Long time lurker, first time poster. Thank you for all that you and your team does for us- nothin better than wakin up and scrolling through your site. Wheeler is a guy you, many experts, and myself were high on coming into the year. We all thought he’d be a rock solid SP2 with SP1 upside. I see you have him 4th today in your rankings. ATL is ripping the ball. Are you confident enough to start him today? Dude has been so darn inconsistent, I’m losing patience and today’s matchup looks mighty scary. Thanks again for your daily knowledge.

    Did the pirates decide to skip Joe Musgrove in the rotation. Is he even playing this week and if he does, is he worth my time?

    Another stinker.
