Week 23 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups


What’s up RotoBallers, hopefully your team is still in the chase as we start heading down the fantasy baseball home stretch. Below are all of the starting pitching matchups for Week 23. 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.

This week there are plenty of rock solid two-start pitchers going (Clayton Kershaw, Adam Wainwright, Cole Hamels, David Price, Drew Smyly, Corey Kluber, Lance Lynn, Yordano Ventura, Julio Teheran, Jake Arrieta, Mat Latos). And as always, there are some viable starting pitcher sleepers and streamers to consider off the waiver wire (Kyle Hendricks, Tsuyoshi Wada, James Paxton, Jimmy Nelson, Vance Worley, Carlos Carrasco, Francisco Liriano, Jeremy Hellickson, Nathan Eovaldi), 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. This weekly piece considers all of the pitching performances thus far this season, the pitcher’s opponents, their career stats against the opponent, 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.

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. Our awesome writers bring you analysis on hot or emerging starting pitchers, and also all other fantasy positions. You can also download our waiver wire iPhone app for free, and easily stay updated.
