2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (4/10 – 4/16)

Baseball is back and in full swing! Welcome to the 2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (4/10 – 4/16).

After an extended Week 1 of action, we are quickly learning that we did not know as much as we all thought we did on draft night!

For those not familiar with the pitching planner let me explain what this post will be about. We will be diving into the upcoming week and the pitching matchups. We will be mentioning some players that are worth starting, sitting and then some streaming options.

Now we won't be talking about Gerrit Cole or Shohei Ohtani, you are obviously starting your aces. We will be looking at the pitchers where it might not be so obvious of a decision.

There will also be a table listing all the two-start pitchers and grading each start. This lets you know if they are actually good two-start pitchers. Too many times I see people automatically plug in a two-start pitcher in hopes of racking up two wins and strikeouts. Instead, they get beaten up and you get two horrible starts out of it. Or one mediocre start and one bad start.

Two-Start Pitchers

Steven Matz/Miles Mikolas - St. Louis Cardinals (@COL, PIT)

The road start at Coors Field is always a scary one but Matz is a go for two, Mikolas if desperate.

Mitch Keller - Pittsburgh Pirates (HOU, @STL)

Despite 15 strikeouts over his first 11.2 innings and looking good against the Red Sox in his second start, you can skip this two-start Keller week.

Pablo Lopez - Minnesota Twins (CHW, @NYY)

I still have no idea why the Marlins traded him and then some for Luis Arraez. 16 strikeouts over his first 12.1 innings pitched with a 0.73 ERA and 0.73 WHIP.  This includes a seven-inning gem with eight strikeouts against Miami this past Wednesday.

Corbin Burnes - Milwaukee Brewers (@ARI, @SD)

This is one of those rare moments when a true ace gets a blurb. If he is on my roster, of course, I am still starting him in both road starts, despite the growing concern around a pitcher that many experts (ECR) and Fantasy managers (ADP) alike considered to be the number one starting pitcher in Fantasy Baseball this draft season.

Hey thanks for the comment. You are correct I have dropped him down from a B grade to a C. McClanahan himself is an A grade pitcher.
