Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Corbin's Velo Dips
Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Corbin's Velo Dips

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

This is the ideal week to gauge the affect of two starts as only a couple of top-tier hurlers will take the hill twice while a slew of mid-rotation arms get the double-dip. Matchups also play an important role this week.

For the week, May 14-20
