Daily Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Pitcher

With nine games on Tuesday's MLB schedule, there are fewer pitching options than usual. We rank them to help with your daily fantasy baseball strategy.

Finding the right pitcher is arguably the biggest key to any daily fantasy baseball strategy. As great as it is to find values and matchup-based sleepers, just havingthe best pitcher on any given day in your lineup is huge in DFS contests. Our daily pitcher rankingsaim to do just that -- find the best pitchers based on talent level and matchup.

Tuesday's MLB schedule has nine games on tap, with the Tigers-White Sox makeup game being the only afternoon offering. The Giants-Diamondbacks, Angels-A's, and Padres-Dodgers all get underway after 9:30 pm ET. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending how you look at it), six of our top-10 pitchers will start in one of those four games. Justin Verlander (No. 3) and Jose Quintana (No. 6) are basically off the radar in FanDuel and DraftKings contests, but with the three late games taking place in Phoenix, San Diego, and Oakland, respectively, you can feel confident using those pitchers in evening contests.

As you might expect from teams playing in their first or second games of the season, the pitching options are mostly solid. There are more "boom-or-bust" options, such asLance McCullers Jr. (No. 7), Sean Manaea (9), and Tyler Anderson (13), but just like on opening day, you can easily dip down past the top half of our rankings and come up with a decent starter.
