Sit/Start Week 9: Reviewing All Starting Pitcher Matchups From 5/27-6/2

Max Freeze covers all the starting pitcher matchups for week 9 (5/27-6/2).

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 contingent 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 is a situation where the team will use the bullpen to fill innings. As with the past couple Sit/Start articles, spots in the rotation where a potential opener may be used will be listed as Opener/potential long man. As for the Pirates, they are a mess next week. Currently, they only have three listed starters and have a doubleheader on Monday in Cincinnati. Feel free to question my designations in the comments and we’ll dive into it together.

Here’s the massive table containing every Week 9 start from 5/27 – 6/2:
