- Extremely small slate today so there is not a lot variance. I’m guessing that Nola and Buehler will be highly owned.
- I’m rolling with San Diego’s Eric Lauer vs. the Phillies.
- Stackables (in order of my preference): Astros, Angels and Cubs.
- (Small sample size alert!) Houston’s Corbin Martin has only faced 76 batters but I did suggest him as a two start pitcher this week. Click here to see why.

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 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.
