Fantasy Baseball Week 11 Pitching Planner

Welcome to the 2022 Fantasy Baseball Week 11 Pitching Planner.

Every Saturday of the MLB regular season, the Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner takes a look at the upcoming SP landscape for the week ahead. I will look to answer some of the questions regarding which hurlers to start, sit, or stream.

A ranking of low-owned (50% or less), two-start options that may be worthwhile acquiring off the waiver wire leads things off. The first two guys have really made an impression on me so far in the young season. I highly recommend them if needed.

Start ‘em

Jordan Montgomery (NYY) – at Tampa Bay Rays

Even after a fifth consecutive quality start Friday night in Toronto, Montgomery is still less than 75 percent rostered in Yahoo leagues at the moment. That needs to change.

Montgomery has yet to allow more than three runs in any of his 13 starts this year, working to an excellent 2.72 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across 72.2 innings. Those marks have been even better during his current streak of quality starts.

Over his last 32.1 innings, Montgomery has turned in a 1.95 ERA and 0.74 WHIP while limiting the opposition to a .508 OPS and inducing groundballs at a 48.9-percent rate. The Yankees southpaw does not possess a ton of strikeout potential, but he has managed a 19.7 K% during this stretch.

George Kirby (SEA) – at Oakland Athletics

Kirby has a serious strikeout upside. It was on full display this past Thursday versus the Angels.

Kirby punched out six total that evening, including all three batters in an impressive, 12-pitch second inning. The rookie right-hander has put up a 25.6 K% over his last five starts, pitching to a steady 3.54 ERA and 1.14 WHIP across 28.0 innings.

With a rostered rate still hovering just below 50 percent, Kirby needs to be on the radar of more fantasy managers. He also has a favorable matchup in Oakland during the upcoming week, plus a home start against the Orioles and a second matchup with the A’s the following week.

Sit 'em

Hunter Greene (CIN) – vs Los Angeles Dodgers

Yes, Greene has been much improved lately overall and the swing-and-miss stuff is always attractive. Still, it is best to stay away this week. The Dodgers offense will enter the Great American “Small” Park as one of just three teams averaging better than 5.0 runs per game this season and among the top-5 in team OPS (.744).

Keeping the ball in the yard has been a problem for Greene. The first-year fireballer has given up 17 long balls in 65.0 innings to this point in the campaign. He did go three straight starts without allowing one to begin this month, but the Brewers belted two off him Friday night.

Do not drop Greene in standard, redraft formats. Just leave him on the bench for this matchup.

Eric Lauer (MIL) – vs St. Louis Cardinals

Lauer had been far better at home than on the road in 2022. That is not enough to suggest running him out there in Milwaukee versus a stout offense considering how poor his performance has been of late.

In 11.1 combined innings against the Nationals and Reds his last two times out, Lauer was hammered for 12 earned runs on 13 hits and five walks. Worse, he managed only seven strikeouts compared to six home runs allowed between those two starts. Sheesh!

The Ks are down. The HRs are up. The control is diminishing.

Stream ‘em

Josh Winckowski (BOS) – vs Detroit Tigers

Coming off a solid start in front of the Fenway faithful, Red Sox manager Alex Cora announced Winckowski will get at least one more start in Boston. That start is slated to come Monday against an arguably lighter-hitting lineup than the one from Oakland he faced this past Wednesday.

Detroit entered play Saturday averaging an abysmal 2.64 runs per game. That is dead last in the bigs by a considerable margin.

Winckowski shut out the A’s over five frames last time out, striking out three while allowing just four hits and a walk. He has just a 7-to-4 K/BB over 8.0 MLB innings, but, at the Triple-A level this year, the young righty has posted an impressive 43-to-8 ratio across 42.2 innings.
