Week 13 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


By Keith Allison from Owings Mills, USA (Clayton Kershaw Uploaded by Muboshgu) [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsThere are some very solid two start pitchers (Sale, Greinke, Kershaw, Hernandez, Samardzija) in Week 13, and some viable starting pitcher sleepers and streamers as well (Wood, McHugh, Morton, Odorizzi to name just a few) to consider off the waiver wire, depending on your league size and format including AL-Only and NL-Only leagues. At RotoBaller, we analyze every Starting Pitcher matchup to help determine which SPs to start/sit and to hopefully find some hidden gems to bolster your teams.

All of the starting pitching matchups for Week 13 are listed below, with the projected SP matchups for each MLB game. This article considers all of the SP performances thus far this season, the pitcher's opponents, their career stats, the ballpark factors and historical splits. Based on all of this information, we provide our start/sit recommendations for each and every starting pitcher matchup for the approaching week of fantasy baseball.

Choosing the right pitchers to sit or start can be tricky, but also a critical component for the success of our fantasy teams. We are always trying to avoid the huge blow-up for our teams, and an ugly ERA/WHIP injection to our team's overall stats. Benching a SP that gets blown up can be the difference between a win or loss in weekly formats. In more standard roto leagues, or in daily league formats, we try to be extra careful and prepare our daily fantasy lineups by choosing the proper matchups on a daily basis.  Good luck this week RotoBallers!

 

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

Editor’s Note: RotoBaller's fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups list is updated every single day. We provide analysis on hot or emerging starting pitchers, in addition to all other fantasy position players. You can also download our waiver wire iPhone app for free, and easily stay updated on all of RotoBaller's waiver wire recommendations.
