Week 3 Start/Sit: Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


 

Week 3 Sit/Start – Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups

By dbking (IMG_6927) [CC-BY-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsOnce again in Week 3 there are plenty of great starting pitcher matchups and sleepers, including two start pitchers to consider for your fantasy baseball lineups. Below we have provided the projected starting pitchers for Week 3, and are recommending our starts/sits for each SP matchup in the upcoming week.

As the season progresses, it will be increasingly important to identify which SPs are off to a hot start and should be activated for your fantasy baseball teams, while also taking a look at those SPs which have been struggling and should be benched for the time being to avoid a disastrous injection of ERA and WHIP into your overall team stats.

It has been an interesting first two weeks to the 2014 MLB and fantasy baseball season. There have been plenty of SP injuries already (Clayton Kershaw, Matt Moore, James Paxton, Alex Cobb, etc) - which means the doors will be opening up for new SPs to emerge out of the bullpen or to be called up from the minors. Be sure to stay on top of our MLB prospects and rookies analysis weekly, to know who will be the next big thing to be called up and contribute to your fantasy baseball teams.

Also be sure to bookmark and check back often to our fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups list (and download our free iphone app), as RotoBaller provides daily updates for starting pitchers (and other positions) to consider off the waiver wire to fill those holes on your fantasy baseball teams and make them winners.
