Sit/Start Week 6: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 5/6-5/12

Max Freeze covers all the starting pitcher matchups for week 6 (5/6-5/12)

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. It’s another week and another group of injured pitchers (Archer, Kluber, maybe Paxton). Teams have yet to name replacements until their spot in the rotation come up, so bear with me. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 6 start from 5/6 – 5/12:

    What’s the rationale for starting Buehler vs. Atl? Buehler has not been good, and Atl is 4th in the NL (11th overall) in OPS against RHP.

    • Max Freeze says:

      Those are definitely valid concerns. Buehler’s been better than his numbers indicate though. His FIP is 3.41 and he’s been extremely unlucky on stranding runners. His first start of the season was bad but his SwStr% has been 11% since that start with a 1.10 WHIP. The Braves have been good against RHP but 11th overall in OPS doesn’t tell me they are necessarily crushing them. I believe in Buehler’s talent.
