Starting Pitcher Chart – July 4th, 2024

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Sorry for no chat today. I wish I could say it was for the holiday or something, but it was a much dumber reason… which I guess was at least tangentially related to the 4th of July. I moved my regular Thursday OOTP show to today because of the 4th but then I got fully in the Thursday groove and didn’t think about botching the chat until late afternoon when it was too late to fire something up. I’ll be back next week with a chat and we can discuss my new SP rankings in more detail.

Recommendations for Roto 5×5 Leagues

 

The chart includes their 2024 stats (this changed over from last year’s stats on April 22nd), their opponent’s wOBA versus the pitcher’s handedness from this year so far (this is changed as of April 11th), my general start/sit recommendation for 10-team, 12-team, and 15-team (or more) leagues, and then a note about them. Obviously, there are league sizes beyond those three so it’s essentially a shallow, medium, deep. If a pitcher only has an “x” in 15-team, it doesn’t mean there’s no potential use in 10s and 12s, but that just means it is a riskier stream as the league gets shallower.

These are general recommendations, and your league situation will carry more weight whether you are protecting ratios or chasing counting numbers. This is for standard 5×5 roto leagues. The thresholds for H2H starts are generally lower, especially in points leagues so I thought there would be more value focusing on roto and then you can generally expand these recommendations a bit for points leagues.
