Ranking All of Today’s And Tomorrow’s SP Matchups – 8/21 & 8/22

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.

    How do you feel about Civale vs Mets? Mets have been hitting the ball well lately. SO have the Cardinals so I’m scared for todays Houser matchup.

      I prefer Houser over Civale, but it’s a bit close. Higher strikeout upside from Houser, but slightly better floor with Civale.
