Sit/Start Week 2: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 4/8-4/14

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 circumstantial and dependent on your needs in a standard 5×5 Wins 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. 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 pitchers who may be subject to an opener. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 1 start from 4/8 – 4/14:

Note: These matchups are subject to change.

Good catch! It looks like ESPN has Tony Disco and CBS has Castillo. It would be Disco’s turn in the rotation. I’d probably sit Disco there.


Tanner Roark is listed two days in a row. The fact that I caught that shows where my pitching is.
