RotoSaurus is the only site on the web giving you Two-Start Pitchers a week in advance (in addition to providing the most accurate Upcoming Week Two-Start Pitchers list); use this to your advantage when making your waiver claims! Remember, these probables are not set in stone, as teams may decide to shuffle rotations next week.

***Postponements, injuries, skipping of fifth starters (especially this early), and the like can always shuffle a rotation at a moment’s notice, so please know that these predictions are heavily researched but may not end up being 100% accurate***

NOTES
*Eickhoff should return from the DL this week.
*Seattle will need a fifth starter on Monday, the day Andrew Moore is eligible for recall.

Park Ratings for Pitchers*
Favorable: HOU, LAA, MIA, NYM, OAK, SF, STL, TB
Unfavorable: ARZ, BAL, BOS, CIN, CLE, COL, CWS, MIL, NYY, PHI, TEX, TOR
Neutral: CHC, DET, KC, LAD, MIN, PIT, SD, SEA, WAS, ATL (unknown at this time)

*Favorable/Unfavorable ratings are based on 2015-2016 ESPN and RotoGrinders Park Factors (with emphasis on HR/R/AVG PF)
**NOTE!** These ratings are general, but each park is specific to certain types of hitters – some are good for left-handed power while others are good for right-handed power; some are good for scoring runs, but bad for hitting HR and vice versa.  For example, KC’s park is good for scoring runs, but awful for hitting HRs.  Each park’s specific strengths and weaknesses can be found here: https://rotogrinders.com/pages/ballpark-factors-49556.

Following Week’s Two-Start Pitchers, Week 14 (Jul 3-9) — 17 Comments

  1. So what day of week do you guys usually update for following weeks starters? So for example not this upcoming week, but following week? Thanks!

    • How so? Care to explain? The Dodgers’ outlook is still undetermined because they haven’t even officially announced who is starting tonight’s game! Even the beat writers are giving different answers.

  2. Dustys and friends i am a long time viewer but never posted before that i recall. Just wanted to thank you for every piece of advice and work you put into this site. I am struggling this week without this site but sometimes we all dont know the importance of this site until we dont have it any longer. Thanks for everything

    • We appreciate the kind words, Greg… we’re sorry if we ever can’t get to stuff fast enough (or at all)… unfortunately we’re not making much money off this and we have jobs and lives so sometimes this gets put on the back-burner, but knowing we have people out there like you makes us try our best to do as much as we can. We’re looking into expanding and redesigning the site soon if possible, so hopefully we can do even more. Thanks again!
