Starting Pitcher Streamer Leaderboards – 6/9 & 6/10

Each day of the 2022 baseball season, I will look at today’s and tomorrow’s list of scheduled pitchers and rank their matchups for your fantasy baseball streams.

There’s a lot that goes into it and you can hang out with me on Twitch.tv/pitcherlist to talk about the specific pitches I do every weekday morning from 9am to 11am ET. If you have any questions about these ranks, please ask them during the morning Twitch AMA. These are my office hours as I generally do not respond to comments on the site.

There are four tiers to this ranking for 12 teamers:

Auto start – Just do it. Don’t think about it, start with the man.

Probably beginning – I’ll probably start with these weapons, although I recognize the risk is greater than we would like. It’s either a tough matchup for a good pitcher or a weak lineup for a fugitive arm.

Questionable start – There are situations where I would take the risk, either with a strong enough advantage on the skill side or a bad offense for a pitcher to exploit.

Don’t start – The reward is not worth the risk. Do not do it.

Obviously, there will be circumstances where pitchers should rotate between teams specific to your situation, and these new tiers should provide a little more help than last year’s straight table.

Please keep in mind that streaming is far from a perfect game. In fact, if they exercise more than half the time, I would call it a success. These matchup rankings and streamer picks will vary wildly from actual results throughout the year, so please excuse the scathing comments and tweets. I’m just trying to help!

Be sure to read the notes if you’re wondering why I choose certain pitchers over others – I won’t go into all of them and hopefully answer any questions you may have.

There is a second table for tomorrow is Also, start pitcher matchups and help everyone use their nightly pickups. Please note, however, these matchups are subject to change will let’s be where I’ve got the wrong pitcher running. Thank you for your future understanding.

Finally, there are my streaming picks of the day, and please keep that in mind I am forced to choose a streamer every day. Those highlighted in it Green are in the second row and I would roll with them anywhere. The most common are those in Yellow in the third tier and should be decent if you’re looking some on a specific day. After all, these are Red is that me Yes, really don’t want to start (after all, they’re marked “Do Not Start”) but have no choice. Don’t stream these guys until you’re really desperate. A streaming pick is defined as “listed in 20% or fewer leagues,” meaning Yes, really stresses that I would be happy if over 50% of these worked. I could do the whole sub 30/40% lineup, but it’s no fun. You can instead use the rankings to see who those picks would be.

(NC contact) – Outlines that a pitcher will be opened for the day and the listed pitcher follows the opener.

As I do my rankings, I thought it would be helpful to present a table showing how we rank offenses. Dave Swan makes one unbelievable Task to feature future SP matches every 2-3 weeks in this article and I decided to use his Offensive ranks to share them with all of you here:

Nick’s Loose Team Offense Rankings

I’m sure it will change throughout the year + there are differences between teams and LHP or RHP but it’s a great general chart to keep in mind for all of you.

Alright, let’s get to that.

Streamer record 2022: 38-22

Today’s Starting Pitcher Rankings

  • Check out the aces at the top of the ranks on Tuesday. Corbin Burnes and Gerrit Kohl but are obviously #1 and #2 Max Fried at #3 can be a little jarring. However, Shane McClanahan has a much tougher matchup and Fried’s bottom against the Pirates earns him the Bronze rank.
  • At the bottom of the level are Shhei Ohtani and Dylan stops. Ohtani is stuck in another tough matchup after his disaster against the Yankees. I wouldn’t reconsider – he has a bad history against New York – and I would still start Ohtani against the Sawx.
  • There is a new addition from Logan Webb today in the top league. He hosts Rockie Street and should have a nice time on the bump.
  • As for Dylan stops I know the Dodgers are scary, but Cease is way too high to bench here. Take the chance, make it possible – h*ck, Michael Kopech finally rose on Tuesday evening.
  • I can see some starting automatically as well Nick Pivetta against the fighting angels and I don’t blame you. I think I’m a little lukewarm about how long this run will last for Pivetta and put him on the second row. It seems a tad too fragile to me.
  • Also in the second row is Tyler Anderson, who’s on a damn good roll himself. The White Sox are better against lefties and I’m skeptical his move can consistently pick up double-digit puffs, but hey, things are cool.
  • Like us, you can find the streaming selection of the day in the third row at last see Konnor Pilkington Pitch this week as he now gets track and field on Thursday. He looked great against the Royals last time out and this change could make it another fun day at the park.
  • We have a lot of starts that could go either way in the third division. Tyler Mahle houses the sneks, Zach Eflin could have his curveball one more time Miles Nicholas is a Tobi faced with a struggling Rays crew, and who knows if this is the start Trevor Rogers at last get it started.
  • We also have the return of Stephen Strasbourg on Thursday as he faces the Marlins. He faced 20 batters in his last rehab start, meaning he could go 5+ strong here. I am careful and label this a Still sick, but there’s a good chance he’ll pull through.
  • The final two arms of the third stage are decent coin tosses if you need help. James Kaprielian is certified Tobi against the mediocre guardians. Don’t rule it out.
  • Then there are the fleeting coffee cakes, JT Brubaker. Atlanta is bad against righties, making for a start where Brubaker’s breakers (Brubreakers?) excel at a productive stream.
  • The bottom tier doesn’t involve much intrigue. In spite of Zach Davis Having had his best change recently, I still don’t want to take the risk on his floor in HR-heavy Cincinnati.
  • And last, Bruce Zimmerman gets a nice matchup against the Royals, but he hasn’t come through with his switch or slider lately. I would wait until later in the season to be more confident about a start. To update: No it is Jordan Lyles instead of this. He’s a coin toss against the Royals.

Tomorrow’s pitcher rankings

  • We have a nice selection of games on Friday, although many face some tough matchups in the first tier. I’m still starting Pablo Lopez, Walker Buehler, Luis Castillo and Zack Gallen even with the tough offenses in front of them.
  • I decided to raise Jose Berrios above some of those names that gave his matchup against the Tigers – it’s the Tigers and Berríos who just fanned thirteen. you have to do it
  • In the second tier, I see some who want both Triston McKenzie and Aaron Ashby promoted to the top league. McKenzie comes off a shaky outing against Detroit and makes it easy riskier than I would like.
  • As for Aaron Ashby, I’m certainly starting him anywhere, although he hasn’t reached a high enough level to become a Tier 1 game yet. I reckon he’ll be there soon enough.
  • I also see that others want to push Luis Garcia into the major league and he faces the Marlins. I’m not incredibly confident in Garcia’s approach of 93/94 mph heaters with a decent cutter… and not much else. It’s good, just not “you gotta start this guy” good.
  • We have a fun matchup in the same tier with Roansy Contreras and Spencer Strider square. I’m starting them both and hoping for the best, favoring Strider a touch more given the lineup and his pitch count up to 87 the last time he started.
  • in the third stage, Paul Blackburn and Kyle Gibson are both Tobis against mediocre opponents. It should go their way, but there is still a lower floor than I would like these guys to be.
  • On the other side of Tobi spectrum are Marco Gonzales and Michael Lorenz, where I feel a little safer but have a harder hill to climb. you make yourself here
  • Our streaming pick of the day is Devin Schmelzer as he faces the rays. Tampa Bay has not been a force to be reckoned with this season and Smeltzer has shown he can hit 5+ strong frames.
  • I can imagine that some dare Chad Cool as he faces the Padres with their fights against right-handers. I can see Kuhl’s slider doing damage against San Diego, but with the slider gone things could get ugly.
  • It looks like Tylor Megil returns Friday (SWEET!) and he threw 3.2 frames and hit just 14 batters in his minor league start in rehab. I wouldn’t expect more than five frames here, which lowers its ceiling enough to make you wonder if it’s worth it Still sick Excursion.
  • are at the bottom of the line Glen Otto and rich hill. They are significantly lower than the other two in this tier, although they have a decent chance of making it work. However, I would generally avoid these launches.
  • There isn’t much to do in the bottom row. Maybe Davis Martin got his best start trying to get comfortable in the White Sox rotation, or maybe Bruce Zimmerman actually pumped his slider and changeup against the royals.
  • I am a little fascinated by Jonathan Heasley against the shrugging Orioles. He increased his speed to 95 mph last time out and if it stays that way a second time, it could propel him to a strong six-inning performance as he threw more than 100 pitches last time out. Easily the best desperate game if that’s what you’re looking for.
