UPDATED – Two start pitchers for week 3 – April 15th through April 21st 2013 fantasy baseball

There are an abundance of 2 start options for week 3, but as you will quickly realize, very few of them are elite.  I was only able to find 3 top tier two start pitchers for the week ahead, and I bumped Medlen/Zimmermann up to get that many!  If you are looking to stream, you should be able to find a number of pitchers in tiers 3 and 4 that will have two starts in the week ahead.

Please remember these are projections only, and are subject to change based on weather, rotations, and a multitude of other factors. Thanks to the number of rainouts in week 2, a number of games have already changed for the week ahead.  Here are the updated two start pitchers for the week ahead.
