Sit/Start Week 2: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 7/27-8/2

Max Freeze rates all SP matchups for the week ahead.

Welcome back to Sit/Start, where every Saturday here at Pitcher List, we review all expected starting pitcher matchups for the week ahead. There are three labels: Start, Maybe, 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. Last year, I modified the ranking system to make designations a little clearer. Here’s an overview. I implemented a scoring system (1-10) next to each designation. A score of 10 is a top-tier start option and a score of 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, Kendall Graveman against the Rockies in Colorado would have this designation: Sit-1.

It’s important to note that several teams have not officially announced how their rotations will unfold but given the information we have, the starters listed below are the expected starters for week 2. 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 2 start from 7/27 – 8/2:

  • I love this weekly feature and refer back to it several times a day throughout the week. Some possible feedback to consider:
    – because of the 60 game season and constant flux so far, would be AMAZING if you updated this article with correct starters/opponents after you post the daily ‘Ranking All of Today and Tomorrow’s SP Streamers’ article.

    This is VERY cool! I look forward to this series
