Pitcher Rankings


ELITE TIER:

Luis Castillo: Far & away has the most upside on the slate. Taking on his former team in the Marlins tonight and has everything working in his favor. Weak lineup, pitchers park, and he’s been rolling as of late. The only thing that would throw me off of him tonight is ownership as he is projected to be the highest owned pitcher tonight on both sites.
