Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

Some risk with a few of the higher end options today, but sometimes ya gotta hold your nose and run with ’em.

Let them be great!


Starter Notes June 6, 2024
RK PITCHER GAME 10 12 15+ IP ERA WHIP K-BB wOBA RK L30/Season NOTE
1 Sonny Gray STL v COL x x x 57 3.00 1.05 27% 11th/21st
2 Tanner Houck BOS at CHW x x x 78 1.85 0.96 19% 30th/30th
3 Bryan Woo SEA at OAK x x x 27 1.30 0.58 16% 14th/20th
4 Reynaldo López ATL at WSN x x x 57 1.73 1.08 15% 28th/22nd
5 Pablo López MIN at NYY x x x 67 4.84 1.15 23% 1st/1st Big rebound start in HOU is encouraging so I’m rolling w/him here despite how terrifying NYY is these days
6 Hunter Greene CIN v CHC x x x 70 3.44 1.16 16% 21st/19th Still just a 6% HR/FB and while I’m still very skeptical it will hold at that level, if he can live somewhere in the 9-12% range that would be great
7 Marcus Stroman NYY v MIN x x x 69 2.73 1.23 9% 22nd/18th
8 Yusei Kikuchi TOR v BAL x x x 66 3.66 1.25 18% 9th/7th I have some nerves w/him, but push-come-to-shove, I’m starting him is most spots
9 Brady Singer KCR at CLE x x x 61 2.63 1.12 18% 15th/15th CLE isn’t as terrifying for righties and Singer is rolling this yr, incl. 5 starts of exactly 1 ER over his L6
10 Mitchell Parker WSN v ATL x x 50 3.60 1.14 15% 14th/8th I didn’t know who Mitchell Parker was coming into the season and now I’m giving him real consideration v. ATL… at least hold for at DET if you skip this one
11 Walker Buehler LAD at PIT x x 25 4.32 1.32 16% 25th/29th He’s clearly not himself right now, though this could be the perfect Rx
12 Cade Povich BAL at TOR x x #N/A #N/A #N/A #N/A 30th/14th Everyone has their own strategy on starting debuts, but I’m open to it… especially w/TOR sputtering
13 JP Sears OAK v SEA x x 67 4.01 1.11 9% 19th/25th Any halfway competent SP gets the nod v. SEA right now and Sears has been great of late: 3.41 ERA/1.11 WHIP in L6
14 Javier Assad CHC at CIN x x 63 2.27 1.18 13% 20th/27th Bounced back from dud 2-step w/a nice outing v. CIN last wk; gets ’em again and they just aren’t a team to run from right now
15 Cal Quantrill COL at STL 68 3.84 1.29 9% 2nd/10th LAD snapped his hot run but that’s expected and no one started him for that anyway… the tough part is you’re kinda streaming for ERA give his modest WHIP and W upside
16 Slade Cecconi ARI at SDP 37 5.59 1.05 12% 8th/3rd
17 Randy Vásquez SDP v ARI 26 5.74 1.61 11% 12th/23rd
18 Bailey Falter PIT v LAD 64 3.22 0.95 9% 3rd/4th
19 Logan Allen CLE v KCR 58 5.83 1.55 12% 1st/11th
20 Jake Woodford CHW v BOS 4 6.23 1.62 10% 13th/9th
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.

Looks like Bibee is starting tomorrow for Cleveland. Gonna assume that’s X X X for 10 12 and 15?

Allen vs. Miami this Saturday is the Guards play, then. Certainly less intimidating of a matchup, but he’s too bad to get any run in Fantasy, currently.
