Starting Pitcher Chart – September 29th

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Daily SP Chart archive

The chart includes their season performance, their opponent’s wOBA versus the pitcher’s handedness over the last 30 days, 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 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.

Kikuchi is going instead of Ryu, so I just edited the post – I didn’t remake the table (not just being lazy, I’m about to record the pod but I want to get Kikuchi updated before record) which is why his 2-x slot appears below a 1-x guy.

Joe Ryan in Coors is the #1 option? I have no shares, but would probably be more comfortable with a Means or Hendricks even
