Week 6 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


By Skoch3 (Own work) [CC-BY-SA-3.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0) or GFDL (http://www.gnu.org/copyleft/fdl.html)], via Wikimedia CommonsThere are some great two start pitchers for Week 6 (Scherzer, Greinke, Ventura), and lots of other solid starting pitcher matchups as well.  As always, analyzing weekly matchups can help uncover SP sleepers off the waiver wire and some potential streamers for your fantasy baseball teams.

Below we are taking a look at the entire MLB slate of projected starting pitching matchups for Week 6, and are providing our start/sit recommendations for the week based on recent performance, ballpark factors, and other historical split stats.

Starting or benching certain pitchers can be a difference maker for your fantasy teams. In weekly formats, it can mean the difference between winning your matchup, and picking up those extra SP stats.  In roto or daily formats, be sure to check out our recommendations and prepare your daily lineups to avoid a potential blow-up to your overall stats.  Good luck RotoBallers!

 

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

Editor’s Note: Be sure to bookmark our fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups list and also grab our free waiver wire iphone app. This way you can get daily updates, for both SPs and all other positions, and improve your teams off the waiver wire.
