Starting Pitcher Chart – March 29th, 2024

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 riskier 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.

OK, I swear these will regularly come out the day before but I absolutely fell asleep early again last night! I’ve been burning the candle at both ends this week, so I just crashed. Again, these first few days are pretty easy decisions, but I know that y’all need these the day before to pick up guys on most sites.
