Week 14 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups

By Kaotate [CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsWhat's up RotoBallers. There are some very solid two start pitchers (Price, Strasburg, Kluber, Sanchez, Duffy, Wood, Richards) in Week 14, and also some viable starting pitcher sleepers and streamers (Morton, Vargas, Hahn, Leake, Locke, Martinez, Despaigne) to consider off the waiver wire, depending on your league size and format including AL-Only and NL-Only leagues. Here at RotoBaller, we believe that it's key to analyze every SP matchup, each and every week, 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 14 are listed below. Every week of the MLB season, we analyze all projected SP matchups and try to put together our optimal lineups. 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 pitcher that gets lit up is a life saver, and can sometimes be the deciding factor in weekly or head-to-head formats. In more traditional season-long formats like roto leagues, and also daily leagues, we have to be even more careful and choose our daily lineups with care. Good luck this week RotoBallers, let's win some leagues!

 

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.
