Sit/Start Week 22: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 9/2-9/8

Max Freeze covers and scores every pitching matchup for the week ahead.

Welcome to Sit/Start where, every Saturday (Sunday this week) 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 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. A few months ago, 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” href=”” rel=”nofollow”>Max Scherzer at home against the Marlins would look like this: Start-10. Meanwhile, David Hess” href=”” rel=”nofollow”>David Hess 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 who have not been confirmed or are situations where the team will use the bullpen to fill innings. As with the past several 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 22 start from 9/2 to 9/8:
