Fantasy Baseball Two-Start Pitchers For Week 4

FFLR_2StartPitchers

FFLR_Writers_long

Every week I will compile a list of all the two-start pitchers during the next week. Not every player on this list should be used, let’s make that clear up front, but if you are desperate and need to pick someone up, maybe you can grab a pitcher from this list. 

I will give you the players name and who his opponents are. Make sure to pay attention to his opponents and that is why they could be categorized accordingly. I will drop the pitcher into one of four categories. The Front Row will be reserved for the elite and shouldn’t even be paid attention to. They will be owned in all leagues and you need not concern yourself. The Second Level will be for the guys that are almost elite and should be owned in 100% of leagues. The Third Level is where we can start to find some guys that might be available in shallow leagues and could be good bets for the week based on match ups. And lastly, the Upper Deck is for guys that are starting twice but have some definite issues. Either it’s the match ups they face or their terrible play on the field recently.

FRONT ROW:

Felix Hernandez (Mariners) – vs HOU, vs TEX

Yu Darvish (Rangers) – @OAK, @SEA

Jose Fernandez (Marlins) – @ATL, @NYM

Adam Wainwright (Cardinals) – @NYM, vs PIT

Chris Sale (White Sox) – @DET, vs TB

Cliff Lee (Phillies) – @LAD, @ARI

Masahiro Tanaka (Yankees) – @BOS, vs LAA

 

SECOND LEVEL:

Justin Verlander (Tigers) – vs CHW, @MIN

Julio Teheran (Braves) – vs MIA, vs CIN

Anibal Sanchez (Tigers) – vs CHW, @MIN

Johnny Cueto (Reds) – @PIT, @ATL

Cole Hamels (Phillies) – @LAD, @ARI

Francisco Liriano (Pirates) – vs CIN, @STL

Andrew Cashner (Padres) – @MIL, @WSH

James Shields (Royals) – @CLE, @BAL

Hyun-Jin Ryu (Dodgers) – vs PHI, vs COL

R.A. Dickey (Blue Jays) – vs BAL, vs BOS

Jon Lester (Red Sox) – vs NYY, @TOR

Jason Hammel (Cubs) – vs ARI, @MIL

Travis Wood (Cubs) – vs ARI, @MIL

THIRD LEVEL:

Dan Straily (Athletics) – vs TEX, @HOU

Dillon Gee (Mets) – vs STL, vs MIA

Clay Buchholz (Red Sox) – vs BAL, @TOR

Edinson Volquez (Pirates) – vs CIN, @STL – Edinson will look to continue his great start this week. He is carrying only 4 ER over 21 innings this year and can safely be entered into lineups until he falls apart. It could be this week, but maybe he’s got two more nice games before things unravel. 

Wily Peralta (Brewers) – vs SD, vs CHC

Garrett Richards (Angels) – @WSH, @NYY

Ian Kennedy (Padres) – @MIL, @WSH

Tanner Roark (Nationals) – vs LAA, vs SD

Scott Feldman (Astros) – @SEA, vs OAK

Zach McAllister (Indians) – vs KC, @SF

Dallas Keuchel (Astros) – @SEA, vs OAK

Jenrry Mejia (Mets) – vs STL, vs MIA

Tommy Milone (Athletics) – vs TEX, @HOU

Wei-Yin Chen (Orioles) – @BOS, vs KC

John Danks (White Sox) – @DET, vs TB

Mike Leake (Reds) – @PIT, @ATL – There are two reasons I like Leake as a possible play this week. One, he’s gone over six innings in each start. And two, he has a nice 14/5 K/BB ratio over three starts. His ERA is sitting at a very respectable 2.95. His last road start was in STL where he threw 8 scoreless innings.

Miguel Gonzalez (Orioles) – @TOR, vs KC

Bronson Arroyo (Diamondbacks) – @CHC, vs PHI

 

UPPDER DECK:

Paul Maholm (Dodgers) – vs PHI, vs COL – Maholm is making his case to be in the rotation while Kershaw is out and did quite well against the Giants in his last start going 6 innings with one earned run. If he does keep this up, the Dodgers may have a choice to make at the back of the rotation.

Danny Salazar (Indians) – vs KC, @SF – Even though Danny is facing the Royals and Giants, I don’t like the fact he hasn’t gone past six innings of work in any start. Be very weary of starting Slazar if you are looking to gamble.

Tom Koehler (Marlins) – @ATL, @NYM

Brandon McCarthy (Diamondbacks) – @CHC, vs PHI

Jake Odorizzi (Rays) – vs MIN, @CHW

Jorge De La Rosa (Rockies) – vs SF, @LAD

Taylor Jordan (Nationals) – vs LAA, vs SD

Ryan Vogelsong (Giants) – @COL, vs CLE

Jeremy Guthrie (Royals) – @CLE, @BAL

Mike Pelfrey (Twins) – @TB, vs DET

*Remember to double check the schedules of each player. A postponed game can and will affect the scheduled starting pitcher.
