Confirmed 2 start pitcher list for week 13

There are 9 teams in MLB that have a 5 game schedule during week 13 of fantasy baseball, meaning fewer 2 start pitchers for the week ahead.  Make sure you plan out your rotation for this week, regardless of format, and snag the best two start option available off waivers.

For those owners interested in streaming, I would focus on the Tier 3 pitchers and below, as the top 2 tiers should all be owned and started this week.’

If you play over at CBSSports.com you will notice quite a few differences between the names here and the ones posted at their fine site.  I do my research using CBS, MLB, and Yahoo, and have found a couple of inconsistencies which I will mention at the bottom of this article.

As always, if you need any lineup help, advice, or simply wish to talk fantasy sports, jump over to our forums where the community will have the fantasy talk going year ’round.

News and notes – confirmed 2 start pitchers for the week ahead

Both Matt Moore and Jeff Locke are listed as 2 start pitchers over at CBSSports for the week ahead, but with the Pirates playing a 5 game schedule they would have to skip a man in their rotation to see Locke throw twice, while Matt Moore is due up on Tuesday for the Rays, who only play 6 games, meaning just 1 two start pitcher from their rotation, which should be Jeremy Hellickson due to throw Monday.

Also missing from CBS is the 2nd projected two start pitcher of the week for the Orioles, as Chris Tillman is confirmed by multiple outlets for Monday, but only Yahoo has Freddy Garcia penciled in for Tuesday.  He obviously is an arm you don’t need to jump on until we receive further confirmation, but it looks like Freddy may get the nod on the 25th.

If you have any further questions or comments about these projections, please post them here in the comments section, or in the forums for the community to read.
