Introducing the Organizational Probable Pitching Chart

I’ve noticed that for the last few days, I’ve been asked the a lot of the same questions on Twitter. When does (Insert Pitcher Here) start? Who starts on (Insert Day Here)? I get those questions a lot during the first week of the season for the obvious reason that the rotations haven’t been announced. However, I also get those questions throughout the season from people who are planning on going to games, or who have tickets to a game that is a few weeks away. So I decided to create a resource that will project the probable starters for the current month.

The Organizational Probable Pitching Chart, which can be found at that link, lists the announced starters for each team, as well as the projected starters through the rest of the current month. The future projections aren’t going to be perfect. One rain out pushes everyone back a day. An injury could shake up the rotation or add a new starter. Any given team could skip a starter. The goal of this chart is to provide a long-term preview of who could be starting on any given day.

Going to an Altoona game at the end of the month? Thinking about catching one of the affiliates when they’re on the road in your town? The chart will give you the projection. Want to see what day Gerrit Cole is pitching, and who he matches up against in the major league rotation? You’ll be able to track that too. The chart will be updated on a daily basis. Be sure to bookmark it, and use it as a reference to see which pitcher will be throwing on the day you’ve got tickets.

    Very cool.
