Sit/Start Week 6: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 8/24-8/30

Max Freeze scores every starting pitcher matchup 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-based 12-teamer, while the other two are self-explanatory. Last year, I modified the ranking system to make designations a little clearer. 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, Mike Fiers against the Rockies in Colorado would have this designation: Sit-1.

There are a few TBD listed below. Once these spots are determined, I’ll update the sheet. Spots in the rotation where a potential opener may be used will be listed as Opener/potential long man. The Mets-Yankees Subway Series has been postponed this weekend due to positive COVID cases on the Mets. That leaves their first series in doubt next week but once again, we will be optimistic for the purposes of this article. Let’s dive in and as always, please feel free to question my designations in the comments.

    2020’s version of Mat Strahmn, Turnbull is a double maybe in a two-start week. Sadness.

    Heard Maeda was starting on Monday instead of Sunday. If true when will Hill start?
