Starting Pitcher Chart – May 28th, 2024

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Taking a partial holiday in that I skipped out on comments tonight so I can head back to the couch to enjoy HOU/SEA plus the hockey and basketball games going on. As always, I’ll gladly answer questions in the comments section if you want to know more about anyone. Heavy stud slate definitely makes it easier to skip doing the commentary, too!

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.

Surprised to not see at least one X for Waldron, has pitched exceptionally well in his last 3 starts.
