Week 23 Starts & Sits - All Starting Pitcher Matchups

There's no running from the endgame now -- it's September, baby. The month where fantasy baseball dreams are made and broken. Bidding wars for streamers and two-start arms intensify as each matchup inches you closer to glory with that finish line in sight, so it's paramount you look at least two steps ahead. To assist your quest for gold, we here at RotoBaller offer our analysis and dynamic pitching scores for each matchup to frame your start/sit decisions. In case you missed it, this is our sixth year now writing this weekly column, helping fantasy baseball managers pick the best pitchers weekly.

Below are the projected starting pitching matchups for Week 23 -- September 2nd through September 8th -- which will be updated as rotations are announced and tweaked. This column will be continuously updated and adjusted for any postponements or rotation shuffles, reflecting official beat writer speculation for as many unconfirmed rotation slots as possible.

For every week of the fantasy baseball season, we look to analyze all of the projected starting pitcher matchups and put together our optimal lineups. 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 identify some sneaky streams. Let's win some leagues!

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

This weekly piece considers the pitcher’s opponents, their outlook against lefties and righties, some ballpark factors and historical splits. With all of this information, we then provide our start/sit recommendations for each starting pitcher matchup for the approaching week of fantasy baseball.

Score values typically range from about 40-60, with higher values being superior. A 50 is the theoretical "Start/Sit" cutoff, but you should use the color-coded scores for valuable context to make your own decisions. Streamers and those relying on counting stats more than all-around ratios can target 48s and 49s, for example. Those set for two-start weeks are highlighted in yellow. Openers will have an asterisk if no "true" starter is announced by team beat writers.

This column will be updated daily as more rotations and starters are announced through September 8th.
