Two Start Pitchers for Week 4 (4/22/19 - 4/28/19)

We've got a laundry list of two-start pitchers coming up this week for April 22nd through April 28h, and here at Fighting Chance, we're going to sort through them so you don't have to! I've separated them into many different tiers. I'm sure you don't need me to tell you to start Jacob deGrom or Max Scherzer, but I did add some tidbits on those down the line if you're looking to differentiate between the options to add to your roster for the coming week. As always, please follow me on Twitter @ktompkinsii for any questions pertaining to lineups, roster decisions, or anything in between! Please also remember that all pitching matchups are tentative and can be moved at any point by their corresponding team. So without further adieu...


Carlos Carrasco, CLE (MIA, @HOU)

Jack Flaherty, STL (MIL, CIN)

Chris Sale, BOS (DET, TB)

Jake Arrieta, PHI (@NYM, MIA)

Kevin Gausman, ATL (@CIN, COL)

Okay, Carlos Carrasco, I'll bite. Let's home his last start in Seattle (7 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 12 K, W) is a bit more of what we can expect from him and not his previous 3 starts... If there's a week for Chris Sale to get a W on the board, it's this week with a home start against the Tigers. If not? Well everybody, we've got issues... I'm on board with Kevin Gausman, even if he is a Jekyll/Hyde pitcher. The below GIF perfectly encapsulates what it's like to own Gausman.



Joe Musgrove, PIT (ARI, @LAD)

Cole Hamels, CHC (LAD, @ARI)

Kenta Maeda, LAD (@CHC, PIT)

Domingo German, NYY (@LAA, @SF)

Mike Minor, TEX (@OAK, @SEA)

Zach Eflin, PHI (@NYM, MIA)

Eduardo Rodriguez, BOS (DET, NYY)

Brad Peacock, HOU (MIN, CLE)

I really like Joe Musgrove, and would be higher if not for that Dodgers start. Currently leading the Majors with a 0.81 ERA, he should carve up the Diamondbacks and be at least serviceable against the Dodgers... Cole Hamels has turned back the clock to 2012, but eventually, the long ball will get him into trouble, and last time I check, the Dodgers hit long balls. That's what puts him in this tier... Two really good starts this week for Zach Eflin and he's at his lowest ownership of the young season after two bad starts in a row. Scoop and score... Brad Peacock goes back in the rotation, he may go 5, but you've got a couple really nice starts here and a good chance at two wins this week.


Pablo Lopez, MIA (@CLE, DET)

J.A. Happ, NYY (@LAA, @SF) 

Jake Odorizzi, MIN (@HOU, BAL)

Steven Matz, NYM (PHI, MIL)

Sonny Gray, CIN (@ATL, @STL)

Luke Weaver, ARI (@PIT, CHC)

Trevor Williams, PIT (ARI, @LAD)

Spencer Turnbull, DET (@BOS, @CHW)

A common theme this week with Jake Odorizzi, Steven Matz, Sonny Gray, Luke Weaver, and Spencer Turnbull each with one good start and one bad... I like J.A. Happ and his starts this week, but who is giving him run support? At this rate, the Yankees lineup will feature the recently fired Mike Pagliarulo and Hensley Meulens with all the injuries they've had... 4 starts, 4 quality starts. He's gotten by for now, but sell high while you can on Trevor Williams.


Anibal Sanchez, WAS (@COL, OAK)

Trent Thornton, TOR (SF, OAK)

Zack Godley, ARI (@PIT, CHC)

Wade Miley, HOU (MIN, CLE)

Ivan Nova, CHW (@BAL, DET)

Erik Swanson, SEA (@SD, TEX)

Lance Lynn, TEX (@OAK, @SEA)

David Hess, BAL (CHW, @MIN)

Jeremy Hellickson, WAS (@COL, SD)

Matt Harvey, LAA (NYY, @KCR)

Tyson Ross, DET (@BOS, @CHW)

Corbin Burnes, MIL (@STL, @NYM)

Marco Estrada, OAK (TEX, @TOR)

Chris Stratton, LAA (NYY, @KC)
