Week 4 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


By mjl816 on Flickr (Original version) UCinternational (Crop) [CC-BY-SA-2.0 (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/2.0)], via Wikimedia CommonsThere are a lot of nice starting pitcher matchups and sleepers for Week 4 of MLB action, including some great two start pitchers to consider for your fantasy baseball lineups. Sometimes picking up a pitcher with a nice upcoming matchup off the waiver wire can help you get an edge for the week.

Below are the projected starting pitchers for Week 4 of the fantasy season, and you can see our recommended starts/sits for each matchup of the upcoming week. Make sure to check your lineups and set them daily (or weekly in some formats), as starting or benching the right SP can be a game changer. 

Editor's Note: Bookmark our fantasy baseball waiver wire pickups list and download our free iphone app. You'll find daily updates for starting pitchers (and other positions) to snag off the waiver wire. You can also stay on top of news for MLB prospects and rookies, as RotoBaller provides weekly updates on prospects to be called up from the minors and make an impact for fantasy baseball.
