Sit/Start Week 13: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 6/24-6/30

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’ve recently changed the ranking system to make designations a little clearer. Here’s an overview. 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-10Meanwhile, 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 are situations 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 13 start from 6/24 – 6/30:

You’re missing Logan Allen on here for SD, who is pitching on Tuesday and not Quantrill. In all fairness, I don’t think the team actually announced Quantrill moving to the bullpen until today, but still, pointing it out. I would imagine that would change things a lot for the recommendation and score for that day now.

Max Freeze

Thanks for the comment John! I submit the post Saturday morning at which time the announcement was not made yet. I’d probably upgrade him to a Maybe-4 or 5 because I don’t love streaming pitchers in BAL.

Craig C

Can you add the full names of the pitcher’s so we can use Fantasy Pros Chrome Plug-in to see who is and isn’t available in our leagues?? Thanks Max!!

Max Freeze

Hi Craig, thanks for the response. I’ll look into it, but the format would likely widen the table which would make it difficult for viewing, especially users who view using mobile devices.

Craig C

Max,

If full names don’t fit… I think just the first initial (example T. Anderson) would do the trick as that is the only name on this list that shows up. Thanks for looking into it! Appreciate it!

Max Freeze

I saw that yesterday, great move for the Cubs. Still very volatile and will likely only go 5 innings. I’ll upgrade him to a Maybe-4 or 5.

Matt Nielsen

Hi Max. Why still so confident with Snell? I know he’s an auto-start but 9 on the scale seems to be ignoring all his struggles of late.

Max Freeze

It’s a tough debut against the Rangers but at least it’s at home. If you need strikeouts, I might throw him out there. I doubt they will let him go more than 5 innings unless he’s very efficient.

Taran

I just had hamels drop to the DL for what sounds like to be a while.
I am looking at skaggs, eflin, possibly bassitt or Hudson. Any suggestion of who would be a better bet going forward? By the way I love the page and wouldnt survive fantasy baseball without it!

Max Freeze

Thanks for the compliment, Taran!

Hudson has a great matchup next week @SF, so I’d grab him for that start. If I had to pick one for the rest of the season, I’d go with Skaggs. He has the most strikeout upside and has been pitching pretty well recently.
