- King of the Hill – Corbin (WSN).
- My value pick tonight is Milone (SEA) vs. Kansas City. NOTE: he will be following opener Gerson Bautista.
- Stackables (in order of my preference): Dodgers, Twins and Rays.
- Small sample size alert! Hernandez (MIA) and Clevinger (CLE) have each faced less than 100 batters this season.

** Indicates that the pitcher listed will follow an “Opener”
Matchup Rating is meant to show how the pitcher’s matchup relates to league average. A rating of 100 means that this matchup is neither good nor bad to the pitcher. A matchup over 100 favors the pitcher and conversely, a matchup up less than 100 favors the hitters. It takes into account:
- The pitcher’s wOBA, ISO and K%
- The opposing lineup’s wOBA, ISO and K% versus RHP/LHP
- Home/away splits
- Ballpark Factor
- Fantasy points allowed to starting pitchers by opposing lineup (link)
If you are looking for bats to stack take a look at the pitchers at the bottom of this list and where the Matchup Rating is below 90. While not always the case, typically when a pitcher scores a low total (perhaps even negative) that means they are probably getting lit up by the opposing lineup.
