Here’s our downloadable spreadsheet with Pitcher List and Yahoo rankings. Below is our top picks for two start pitchers in Week 23. We picked pitchers who would maybe be available in your league.
- Michael Wacha
56% owned in Yahoo leagues. Had two bad starts but pitched better his last time out.
- J.A. Happ
64% owned in Yahoo Leagues. Last time out, only gave up 1 run against Boston. He hasn’t had a second half like last year but two bad starts may have inflated his second half ERA.
- 3. Robert Stephenson
8% owned in Yahoo Leagues. He has nasty stuff and can get you strike outs (9.5K/9IP) if you’re in need. He only gave up two runs against the Mets with 7 SO last time out.
Rick’s Bargain Starter
- Bartolo Colon 7% owned Yahoo!
Bartolo has a 3.40 era in August. Tampa Bay hit .228 in the month of August and as a team batting .257 against Bartolo. Jason Vargas is the tale of 2 halves. 6.80era in the second half and the Twins are hitting .274 over the last 14 days.
