Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Saving the Best For Last

Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Saving the Best For Last

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

And then there was one. Twenty-five plus weeks are in the book. The final week of the season benefits from three rainouts last week, bringing Monday's slate to five games. Keep in mind the Braves and Rockies will only their makeup in Oct. 4 if it matters for the NL East title.

There are several arms scheduled for two starts in danger of skipping or at least truncating the weekend start depending on how important it is to nail down a playoff berth.

As has been the case all season, the probable pitchers are pulled from the site's Starting Pitcher grid, so please direct all rotation questions to that page. I'll be happy to discuss the final set of rankings in the comments.
