Starting Pitcher Chart – March 28th, 2024

Mike Watters-USA TODAY Sports

Daily SP Chart archive

The chart includes their last season performance until we get some actual data for this year, their opponent’s wOBA versus the pitcher’s handedness from last year (and then I’ll add the last 30 days outlook next month), my general start/sit recommendation for 10-team, 12-team, and 15-team (or more) leagues, and then a note about them (well, no notes for this first weekend since we’re mostly just going off the preseason analysis, but I will answer as many comments as I can). 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 it’s basically a risky stream for those spots.

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.

This will come out the night before most days. I had a late night draft last night and just couldn’t stay up to finish it afterwards. But it’s Opening Day so most of the decisions are pretty easy!

First day of the season and the date is already wrong (should be Mar 28 not 29)! This is why Rotographs needs a Spring Training. Clean it up, Paul!

(Just kidding!)
