Week 3 Start/Sit: MLB Starting Pitcher (SP) Matchups

What's up RotoBallers? We are back with our weekly starting pitcher matchup recommendations. Below are the projected starting pitching matchups for Week 3, and our recommendation on whether you should start or sit the pitcher. If you've got any questions about which pitchers can capitalize on a juicy matchup and which ones might be worth putting on the pine against a fierce offense, this is the weekly piece for you.

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 to hopefully find some hidden gems to bolster your teams.

This weekly piece considers 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.

SP Matchups & Start/Sit Recommendations

Note that MLB teams usually shuffle their rotations, so I’ll be updating the matchups throughout the day and week. This is based on 10-14-team league sizes:
