Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Bottom of the Barrel

Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Bottom of the Barrel

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

With the front three of most rotations working over the weekend, the majority of the two-start options emanate from the four and five spots, not ideal for those looking to stream the back end of their fantasy staff. Gerrit Cole, Walker Buehler and Tyler Glasnow are the notable exceptions. On the other hand, many team's top-two starters will line up for double the fun next week.

For those new to these rankings, the matchups are pulled from our probable pitchers grid, which is constantly updated. On Sunday night, these rankings will be refreshed based on the latest information.

I'm always happy to discuss the rankings in the comments. Please direct all rotation questions to the comments in the probable pitching grid.
