Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Sometimes One is Better than Two

Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Sometimes One is Better than Two

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

It's another busy week with 98 games on the docket. Based on the projections fueling these rankings, it portends to be a high scoring week, and that's without the chance scoring spins out of control.

With so much uncertainty, making prudent pitching decisions is even more important. There's a fine line between aggressive and reckless. With the weather warming, it's time to back off forcing two-start guys into your lineup and pivot to single start options with a favorable matchup or even a dominant reliever.

As always, please direct rotation questions to the best Projected Starters grid in the business. I'm happy to address specific ranking inquiries, but I rely on our crack staff for the matchups.
