Weekly Pitcher Rankings: A September to Remember?

Weekly Pitcher Rankings: A September to Remember?

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

Things are shaping up for an exciting month. It sure appears the NL West and the wild cards in both leagues will go down to the wire. Both Cy Young awards are up in the air. Even if he doesn't have ample innings to qualify for the AL Cy, we should have a few more chances to marvel at Shohei Ohtani's mound exploits while he chases 50 homers.

From a fantasy perspective, the first full week in September is busy with 96 games, including a doubleheader on Saturday between the Blue Jays and Orioles in Baltimore.

Here is your weekly reminder that I pull the starters from our Projected Starters page so any scheduling questions should be posted over there. I'm happy to address ranking questions below.

Please check back on Sunday night for the weekly refresh.
