Fantasy Starting Pitcher Planner: Week 23

11

Paul Sporer

Paul helps you set your fantasy rotation for next week with a look at the two-start pitchers.

Welcome to the Weekly Pitching Planner. Each week I will cover the pitchers are who slated to make two starts and help you decide who you should start and who you should sit. Sometimes guys will be in the “consider” where they might have one good start, but a second tough one and then your league settings might determine whether or not you should go forward with him. The pitchers will be split by league then by categories:

Auto-Starts – These are your surefire fantasy aces. You paid a handsome sum for them either with an early draft pick or high dollar auction bid so you’re starting them anywhere, anytime. Guys can emerge onto or fall off of this list as the season evolves. There won’t be many – if any – notes associated with these groupings each week. We are starting them automatically so why do I need to expound on how awesome they are and will be in the coming week?

What You Need to Know: An Ugly Outing for Felix

2

Daniel Rathman

Two aces have off nights, a pair of young players excel for Kansas City, and more.

The Wednesday Takeaway
Even the best pitchers get shelled from time to time, and Felix Hernandez is no exception. The Mariners ace recorded only nine outs in yesterday afternoon’s meeting with the Rangers, who stranded two runners in the first inning and then unleashed a merciless coup that bumped King Felix off his throne.

Hernandez came within one out of leaving two more Texas runners on base in the second inning, but Leonys Martin would have none of that. The center fielder worked the count to 2-1, putting Hernandez into a fastball situation with two on and two away. The right-hander aimed for the outside corner, but his 89-mph sinker stayed elevated over the outer third, leaving him watching helplessly as Martin walloped the offering over the fence in the left-center field gap. Hernandez’s pitch was a mistake, but Martin—who was homer-less to that point in August—deserves a good deal of credit for capitalizing on it.

What You Need to Know: Panic in Detroit?

3

Daniel Rathman

Justin Verlander has looked mortal lately, and on Thursday he was hit hard again by the AL's worst offense.

The Thursday Takeaway
The series finale between the White Sox and Tigers may have been the league’s main attraction yesterday afternoon, drawing fans of both teams and those eager to see the pitching matchup of Justin Verlander and Jake Peavy, as well as scouts evaluating the latter for prospective trade-deadline buyers.

Peavy held serve for those eyeing his services, tossing seven-plus innings of four-run ball, over which he permitted only four hits and two walks while striking out seven. The 32-year-old’s outing might have looked better had manager Robin Ventura turned to his bullpen to begin the eighth inning. But the skipper let Peavy—whose pitch count was well into the triple digits—return to the bump, and he promptly served up a home run by Brayan Pena, the third long ball authored against him on the afternoon. With 118 pitches, 74 of them strikes, on the counter, Ventura finally took the ball from his workhorse no. 2 starter and handed it to Matt Lindstrom, who combined with closer Addison Reed to protect the 7-4 lead.

The Cardinals extend Adam Wainwright, the Blue Jays extend J.A. Happ, and the Yankees let Juan Rivera go.

Playoff Prospectus: NLCS Game 4 Recap: Cardinals 8, Giants 3

As it turns out, pitching from the stretch is not a panacea for what ails Tim Lincecum.

Guess the MLB.com headline!

Tim Lincecum returns to the rotation opposing Adam Wainwright in a matchup that's too close for PECOTA to call.

The Cardinals lost their best postseason hitter to a knee injury early in Game Three, but still came out on top, because his replacement socked a game-winning two-run homer in his first trip to the plate. Now, the Giants must win to avoid facing three consecutive elimination games for the second straight series. Here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for Game Four:

PECOTA prefers Stephen Strasburg were going, but the Nationals will instead hopes a different ace can bounce back from a wild outing.

Four division series, four Game Fives, and this one between the Cardinals and Nationals should decide the last team to advance—unless, of course, the Yankees and Orioles play extra innings again. If the Cardinals win, the no. 2-seeded Giants will enjoy home-field advantage in the NLCS; if the Nationals win, they will host Game One on Sunday as the senior circuit’s top regular-season team. First things first, here are the PECOTA odds and projected starting lineups for this evening’s contest:

The Nationals got behind in the game but get ahead in the series.

In the Cardinals-Nationals series preview, I crowned Matt Carpenter the best pinch-hitting option in the series. I then declared the Nationals trio of Roger Bernadina, Chad Tracy, and Tyler Moore the second-through-fourth best pinch-hitting options available in the series. Davey Johnson deployed each of the three in Sunday’s Game One victory.
