Thursday a lighter day on the Major League Baseball schedule with just ten games on tap as ten teams travel and get ready for their upcoming weekend series. If you’re looking for fantasy baseball help for your starting rotation, though, there are some pretty decent options who are widely available.
This month my daily starting pitching pickups (archive and new posts show up here) have been doing extremely well. All my options are always available in at least half of ESPN leagues the day before they pitch, and I select based on form, fitness, and matchup. Through Tuesday’s games, my August selections are 20-7 with a 3.01 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP, and a 7.65 K/9 rate in almost 250 innings. Normally my numbers aren’t quite that good, but I’ll do my best to avoid the dreaded “regression” with these picks for Thursday:
8.8% owned, @ Miami Marlins
0.6% owned, @ Chicago Cubs
16.4% owned, vs Washington Nationals
0.3% owned, vs Houston Astros
