Week 15 Pitching Planner: Let’s Not Get Roughed Up

With the Scott Fish Bowl starting this week, my baseball preparation has taken a bit of a backseat. I still wanted to do a quick Week 15 pitching planner to put the information out there.

The Scott Fish Bowl is the ultimate Fantasy Football tournament/league. With over 800 teams, this combination of Fantasy Football analysts and fans is one of the most fun leagues I am a part of.

However, Scott does keep it different with a new roster/scoring setup each season. For that reason, I am quite behind on my preparation for it.

Last week my streaming options were 4-2-1 with Marco Estrada exiting in the first inning with an injury hence the tie. I talked up Jeremy Hellickson and he got bombed. Let’s hope I don’t fail in my Week 15 pitching planner.

As we head into the Week 15 pitching planner, my overall streaming suggestions are 73-20-2 with a couple of guys left as of this writing.

For the Week 15 pitching planner, I am using ownership percentages from ESPN. The information in this Week 15 pitching planner is up to date as of July 7th.

Good Matchups

These are mostly must-start pitchers anyway, but take note for daily players.

Jose Quintana, CHC at SF

Jordan Zimmerman, DET at TB

Danny Duffy, KC at MIN

Kenta Maeda and Ross Stripling, LAD at SD

Freddy Peralta, MIL at MIA

Max Scherzer, WAS at NYM

Jake Arrieta, PHI at BAL

Bad Matchups

In year-long leagues, you probably aren’t sitting these guys, but stay away in daily formats.

Corey Kluber, CLE vs. NYY

Mike Fiers, DET at HOU

Johnny Cueto, SF vs. CHC

Bartolo Colon, TEX at BOS

Streaming Options

These are the guys to pick up and insert in your lineup for a good matchup this week.

Tyler Chatwood, CHC at SD (14.0% ownership)

Reynaldo Lopez, CWS vs. KC (20.8% ownership)

Francisco Liriano, DET at TB (7.8% ownership)

Jason Hammel, KC at MIN (1.4% ownership)

Sonny Gray, NYY at BAL (49.6% ownership)

Shockingly, Gray is officially owned in less than half of leagues now. I like him to bounce back this week.

Nick Pivetta, PHI at NYM (39.2% ownership)
