Here are the SP Streamer’s daily rankings for today.
Each day of the 2023 baseball season, I’ll look at today’s and tomorrow’s roster of scheduled starting pitchers and their matchup order for your fantasy baseball streams.
There’s a lot that goes into this and you can hang out with me Playback.tv/pitcherlist To speak of specific ranks as I do them every weekday morning from 10 am to 12 noon ET. If you have questions about these ranks, please ask during the AMA morning run. These are my office hours because I generally don’t respond to comments on the site.
There are four levels to these rankings with the 12 players in mind:
auto start – do it. Don’t think about this, start the guy. This included “if I had them on the roster, I’d start them” pitchers.
maybe start – I’ll probably start on those arms, though I realize there are more risks than we’d like there to be. Either it’s a tough match for a good pitcher who isn’t elite or a weak lineup for a sloppy arm. These shooters have a 50% or more chance of doing well in my view.
questionable start – Think of this level as, “I don’t want to start these shooters on a blank slate, but you could do worse.” The streamers at this level are not pitchers which I only target if I’m desperate for one. To play it safe with broadcasts, just start your potential broadcast.
do not start – The reward is not worth the risk. Do not do it. Seriously, these shooters have very little chance of success or sometimes nothing at all.
Obviously there will be circumstances where shooters must cycle between teams according to your position precisely and these new levels should act as a little more help than the straight schedule from last year.
Please keep in mind that streaming is far from perfect gameplay. In fact, if you exercise more than half the time, I considered it a success. These match rankings and streamer selection will be very different from the actual results throughout the year, so please, sympathize before the scathing comments and tweets. I’m just trying to help!
Be sure to read the notes if you’re wondering why some shooters are preferable to others – I won’t be able to get through to all and hope to answer the questions you’ll have.
There is a second table for tomorrow Match matches start too, helping everyone hop into their night trucks. Please note that matches are subject to change, though, and there are will There are times when the wrong pitcher goes. Thank you for your future understanding.
Finally, there are streaming picks for the day, and please keep that in mind I am forced to pick a streamer every day. those highlighted in green She is the broadcast selection for that day in the second division and I will meet them everywhere. those in yellow Its third level and you should be fine if you are looking for something on a given day, but I don’t recommend streaming unless you need to. Finally, these red They are those truly It doesn’t want to start (it’s labeled “don’t start,” after all) but has no other choice. Don’t stream these guys until you’re really desperate. Broadcast selection is defined as “listed in 20% or less of tournaments” truly Emphasizes the point that I would be happy if more than 50% of them were successful. I could do the entire 30/40% sub-menu, but there’s no fun in that. You can use the rankings to see who these selectees will be, instead.
(opener) – It states that no pitcher is opened for that day and the pitcher will follow in the opener.
While I’m doing my classifications, I thought it would be helpful to show a table showing how we classify crimes (in alphabetical order):
Nick’s Loose Team Offense Rankings (Updated 8/11)
I’m sure it will change during the year + there are differences to be made about the difference vs. LHP or RHP, but it works as a general table to keep in mind.
Well, let’s get to it.
This year, with our daily PLV-powered baseball fantasy show, I’ll be competing against PL Bot to pick the best streaming option each day.

Thrower rankings start today
Gerrit Cole @ MIA – Aces will work on an ace.
Freddy Peralta @ CHW – The skills are as good as we’ve ever seen.
Julio Urillas vs. Colonel – It’s been pushed over 90 pitches last time which is Rocky Road.
It might start
Zack Evelyn vs. Kelly – Evelyn is sailing and the Guardians don’t scare us.
Logan Webb vs. Tex – We love Webb, but it’s Texas. Not entertaining.
Bryce Miller vs. Pal – Miller bent his new slider one last time stupid sound order.
Sonny Gray @ PHI – Gray does whatever you want him to do now.
Eduardo Rodriguez @ BOS – Erode displayed a four-seamer/change-up approach I haven’t seen since 2019+ Boston not swinging a dangerous bat.
Seth Lugo @ ARI – Lugo is a solid game against offenses like Arizona with the Padres defense behind him.
Stop Dylan vs. MIL – He’s as messy as ever however, he’s a brewer and we all know he can restart it in a heartbeat.
Kyle Pradesh @ SEA – The Mariners are likely to succumb to Pradesh’s perfect approach to break.
Tanner Baby @ TBR – It’s the rays, but Bibi was an absolute must gold for your fantasy teams.
Yuri Perez v. The New York Times – I love what Perez does, even though Marlin might limit him to about 80 pitches.
Dan Dunning @ SFG – It’s a great match in San Francisco with Dunning featuring a powerful slider and cutters lately.
Cotter Crawford v. DET – The Tigers love to chase from the area and hopefully that makes Crawford the best he can be.
Update: Brandon Williamson @PIT – Williamson himself was a Game Earlier this week, he displayed a solid changeup at the top of the trim orders and decent fours. Pittsburgh is having its moment, but I think I’m getting along with this one, and I’m taking a chance because Williamson has made a sustainable adjustment for the future.
Mitch Keeler vs. CIN – Keeler wasn’t in the best of shape and I avoid that everyone Of these for Sunday more than usual for the third class. However, Keeler has shown flashes of his former self and hosting the Reds in Pittsburgh is a solid match.
Kodai Singa vs. ATL – Senga has been great, but Atlanta’s offense has had 150+ hits over the past two weeks. that it horrifying.
Chasing Silseth @ HOU – He was amazing last time, though the champion was the traitor because he returned 12 whiffs. I need a bigger sample to buy into, especially against the Astros.
Jameson Tellon @ Tour – It’s been over Toby And I have some intrigue with the Jays flopping against four Tailors – Taillon started to implement this ability effectively last time.
Jose Urquidi vs. Los Angeles – Urquidy was not yet fully extended and his lead needed a bit of a ‘squeeze’ as he was near the area but very far off the edge in every direction. I imagine it would do better here, but with a coffered ceiling given its potentially limited tonality.
Hyun Jin Ryu vs CHC – The Cubs are hot, but we haven’t seen Rio get a proper chance at rusting yet. He might be a solid six-run bowler here.
Ken Walditchuk @ WSN – It’s strange to put Waldichuk this “high,” but he cheered seven Rangers last time with a much better slider and flirt BSB. It’s a desperate game, but it might keep his climb going.
do not start
Brandon Pfaudt vs. SDP – Pfaadt struggled against the Dodgers and now he’s getting the Padres. He could come, but I wouldn’t chase him anywhere.
Ranger Suarez vs Maine – We saw a better change from Suárez last time around, but the rest still needs work. In addition, this can be Zack Wheeler Instead, he would clearly be the No. 2 player for Sunday if that were the case.
Uni Cherinos @ NYM – The chance of winning is still good with Atlanta on his side, but things just aren’t.
Lock Weaver @ Pete – I like that Weaver is experimenting with a file Canibal McSanchez Although we are still in the wait-and-see phase.
Trevor Williams vs. Oak – # do not believe.
Kyle Freeland @LAD – He’s out of the chorus…but he’s got the Dodgers.
Update: Andre Jackson vs CIN – It starts with Ortiz and I don’t expect it to be long.
Thrower rankings start today
Bomber rankings start tomorrow
Tyler Glasnow @ SFG – He’s been pushed back to Monday, and while there’s a wart here about how the Rays use him (will they push him beyond five or 80 pitches?), the game is pretty good.
Max Scherzer vs. LAA – Angels is stronger than SFG, but it’s Scherzer.
Max Fried vs. New York – Fried had a hiccup last time and yet he had a pickup in speed.
Framper Valdez @ MIA – The Orioles got to him in the first two innings, then settled down. I hope the cutter returns, but the dominant curve and dive can still drag Valdez off the finish line.
U Darvish vs Pal – His skater + fastball style works, but it’s still a little messy. We started our buttons even with the disturbing haze that Darvish brings.
It might start
Grayson Rodriguez @ SDP – Run the slider one last time and one day Grayson will do something BSB Totally blows us away. The Padres are solid against right-handers, but you never really know when they’ll show up or not.
Brady Singer vs. SEA – Slider command is cool and sailors have to give in to it.
Emerson Hancock @ KCR – Great match for Hancock, who showed a solid plunge + potential upside in change and cut. I’d pick him up everywhere and probably keep him in Houston (even if that’s a potential seat + we’re not sure if Wu will be back in a couple of weeks, if at all this year). I wouldn’t be shocked if we saw a six-man Mariners down the stretch if Woo came back to help with the workloads of their little arms like Hancock.
JP Sears @ STL – There is a strong potential for a strong outing here, even if the chance of winning is dwindling on the field for athletics.
Miles Mikulas vs. Oak – I’m not a huge fan of what Mikolas does, but there’s an over 6 tire opportunity that’s Oakland.
Meryl Kelly @ COL – It’s a chorus…and yet Kelly has consistently found a way this year. Even crazier things have happened.
do not start
Clark Schmidt @ ATL – It was great, but Atlanta is one of the best offenses of all time. It’s not realistic.
Patrick Sandoval @ tex – Texas crushes lefties and I still haven’t seen a game where Sandoval has his slider and changeup.
Braxton Jarrett vs. HOU – Diver and cutter Garrett did not return.
Chris Flexen vs. ARI – At least he has the chance.
Shawn Mania vs. TBR – The manifold has been surprisingly decent from the pen at times and yet these are the rays.
Carlos Carrasco vs. Pete – The match looked good, but so was Carrasco no.
Quinn Brister @ NYM – Quinn is not someone you can trust at all.
Bomber rankings start tomorrow
