2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (5/8 – 5/14)

by Taylor Cochran

Heading into the second week of May, here is the 2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (5/8 - 5/14)!

The weather is going to start heating up, which means ballparks and matchups will matter more than ever.

In this article, we will be diving into the pitching schedule and discuss some start and sit options. We will also take a look at some guys that will serve as solid streamers for the week.

You're always going to start your aces, but this article will help with guys that are on the cusp. One bad start can ruin your whole week and we're here to help you avoid just that!

The 2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (5/8 - 5/14) also includes a table listing all the two-start pitchers and their grades for each matchup. This table can help when it comes to deciding whether to actually plug in a two-start pitcher or not. Just because you have a pitcher with two starts that week doesn't necessarily mean you should start him!

Two-Start Pitchers

Zac Gallen/Brandon Pfaadt, Diamondbacks (MIA, SF)

Gallen is 4-1 with a league leading 57 strikeouts. He's the leading candidate for the NL CY Young Award. Gallen is now in must start territory, regardless of matchup so enjoy the two-start week. Meanwhile, Pfaadt just got the call up and was torched in his first start. He's worth rolling the dice considering his opponents and prospect pedigree.

Miles Mikolas, Cardinals (@CHC, @BOS)

Mikolas makes the list again, and its a vehement DO NOT START. With a 5.79 ERA and two road matchups against the Cubs and red hot Red Sox, Mikolas should be left on the bench. He has been extremely underwhelming this season, and until he gets it together, he shouldn't even be rostered.

Tanner Bibee, Guardians (DET, LAA)

Bibee made the list last week as one of the "Prospects to Watch" and now the youngin' gets a two-start week. The righty has looked impressive in his first two MLB starts, and was even more impressive in the minors. Both starts come at home, and his first is against the Tigers, one of the worst offenses in the league. Start him with confidence and if you own him, pat yourself on the back. You might have yourself a fantasy lottery ticket.

Kyle Gibson, Orioles (TB, PIT)

He may have 4 wins and has been a solid streamer, but Gibson is worth avoiding this week. He's given up a league-leading 44 hits and his 4.61 ERA doesn't look too shiny. With a matchup against the Rays and Pirates, keep this righty on your bench.

Logan Webb, Giants (WAS, @ARI)

Webb comes into this week with a league-leading 5 losses. However, don't let this dissuade you from starting him this week. He has a great matchup at home against the Nationals, one that he should dominate in. The righty also has a career 2.65 ERA against the Diamondbacks. Start him up with confidence this week.

Zach Eflin, Rays (@BAL, @NYY)

Eflin has been absolutely dominant since joining the Rays this season. So far this year, the righty is 4-0 with 31 strikeouts in 28 innings. He has a week within the division, but with how well he is pitching, you have to start him.
