2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (6/26 - 7/2)

Can you believe it is almost July? Baseball is getting close to the halfway point, which means you better nail every single start going forward! Without further ado, here is your 2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (6/26 - 7/2)!

The summer sun is going to start beaming down on the league. While the Rockies certainly don't have the league's best offense, I'm starting to get more and more scared of every Coors Field matchup.

As we take a dive into this week's pitching planner, check out the two-start matchups. There are a lot of studs and duds that need a second look based on the analytics. You may think its a no-brainer to start your ace, but I'm here to make you think differently!

The 2023 Fantasy Baseball Pitching Planner (6/26 - 7/2) 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

Nathan Eovaldi, Rangers (DET, HOU)

Eovaldi is an interesting case this week. He's the likely frontrunner for the AL Cy Young Award this season, but he has had some concerning signs as of late. According to sources, Eovaldi's fastball has now been down for three straight starts. After a commanding start to the season, the righty has struggled a bit. He has now allowed 11 earned runs in his last three starts, including a subpar showing against the White Sox last week. Eovaldi has a history of decreased fastball velocity, but fantasy managers should be aware of how the second half of the season could look. I think you have to start Eovaldi this week with the alluring Tigers matchup, but beware of how things could shake out against Houston.

Julio Teheran, Brewers (@NYM, @PIT)

Teheran has been a nice surprise in 2023. Through his first six starts, he has a 1.53 ERA to go with a 0.88 WHIP. What makes him a two-start pitcher to keep in your lineup this week is the fact that he faces two offenses on the road. Teheran has only allowed two runs away from Milwaukee this season. Furthermore, he has a 2.86 ERA in 34.2 innings at PNC Park. He's never going to be the pitcher that blows people away, but will how well he's throwing on the road, you have to start him this week.

Sandy Alcantara, Marlins (@BOS, @ATL)

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. After a dominant 2022, Alcantara is currently unstartable. He now has back to back games giving up 10 hits and 5 runs. His 5.08 ERA is horrific. You simply can't trust him. To make matters worse, he faces two of the best offenses in baseball. I know you drafted him as an ace, but he hasn't been one this year. Stay away from the two-start week.

Taj Bradley, Rays (@ARI, @SEA)

It's not the best matchups in the world, but I just love this kid. Over his last two games, he has 19 strikeouts, including an 11-K performance in Oakland. On the season, he has a 3.86 ERA, but it could be even better if the Rays didn't send him up and down to start the year. As he has continued on the year, Bradley has gotten better and better. The talent is there -- he has 10+ strikeout potential on any given night. Plus, he is only allowing opposing hitters to bat .204 on the road. Simply put, he is much better away from Tropicana Field. He's a good option this week.

Spencer Strider, Braves (MIN, MIA)

Another two-start week for Spencer Strider. Fantasy managers can rejoice!

Sonny Gray, Twins (@ATL, @BAL)

Gray has been phenomenal this season, but he faces stiff competition this week. Still, I like him for his two-start matchups. Not only does he have a 2.56 ERA, but he also hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in any start this season. He's also undefeated on the road this season. Don't let the tough matchup against Atlanta scare you away. Gray is still a solid option during his two-start week.
