The Fantasy Baseball Forecaster pitching grid has been updated as of Saturday, April 15, at 3:30 p.m. ET.
Welcome to the new and improved version of the Fantasy Baseball Forecaster! This year, we've reorganized the story into four parts; it's the same great intel, but you get right where you need to go as fast as possible. Good luck this season!
Here's the scheduled starter for each game scheduled from April 9 to 16, including a projected game score for each pitcher in each matchup. A 50 is typically deemed a "quality start" by this measure, while a 70 is considered a dominant start:
With the Washington Nationals promoting Jeremy Guthrie for an April 8 spot start, then designating him for assignment immediately afterward, the team will presumably use the April 13 off day to skip that spot in their rotation. It's also possible that the team could choose to summon Joe Ross to pitch during the April 14-16 weekend.
Alex Wood made a spot start in place of Rich Hill (DL: blister) on April 10, but Hill is considered likely to be ready to rejoin the Los Angeles Dodgers' rotation by the next time that spot arrives on April 16.
Jarred Cosart made a spot start for the San Diego Padres in place of Trevor Cahill (DL: back) on April 10, and Zach Lee made a spot start for them in place of Luis Perdomo (DL: shoulder) on April 12. Cahill is expected to be ready to pitch on April 16.
