Sit/Start Week 11: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 6/10-6/16

Welcome to Sit/Start where, every Saturday 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 contingent and dependent on your needs in a standard 5×5 Wins 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. I’m trying something new this week, so let me know what you think about it in the comments, suggestions are always welcome. I’m implementing a scoring system (1-10) next to each designation. 10 is a top tier start option and 1 is a bottom of the barrel option. Here are the labels: Start 7-10, Maybe 4-6, and Sit 1-3. For example, Max Scherzer at home against the Marlins would look like this Start-10. Meanwhile, Ivan Nova against the Yankees in New York would have this designation Sit-1.

You’ll notice a few question marks next to some of the names. These are either probable starters that have not been confirmed or is a situation where the team will use the bullpen to fill innings. As with the past couple Sit/Start articles, spots in the rotation where a potential opener may be used will be listed as Opener/potential long man. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 11 start from 6/10 – 6/16:

Canning got bumped to Monday. Still probably a sit though? If you had to give it a # the 4-5 range?

Max Freeze

Yeah, I like the start against TBR a little better, so you nailed it. He’d be a 4 or 5 at home against OAK who is much better offensively on the road and seems to be at full strength.

Brad R

I went by strict numbers and started Eichoff over Canning (lower team and trying to be under the 200 start limit after a heavy week last week)

Yikes. Not an indictment against your rankings which i think were fair. Sometimes you just gotta go with your gut and ride your guy against the tough team

Kyle Weber

Hi Max, just wanted to let you know that I love the new ranking system you’ve implemented! I think it is especially helpful for the “Maybe” category. Keep up the good work!


Just to follow along with the other commentor, big fan of the new system and the added granularity. Really helps provide some color when one has to make a borderline decision. Great stuff.

Max Freeze

Thank you StatsDontLie! glad the hear there’s been some positive feedback, hopefully this helps you out now & in the future.

james rogers

I like the new numbers format. It particularly helps in the maybe category.
I would also use the sign @ to designate where the game is being held. I know that is important to me, especially at Coors.

Brandon Scott

I do like that you put a number system now on start or sit… it really gives you a better idea to where that pitcher stands… Lets Go!

Craig Christensen

Max, Can you add full names to this list? That way those of us who use FantasyPros Google Chrome player plug-in can see who is and isn’t available? Also how often during the week do you update this or is just a one-time post? Thanks!!
