Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Double Dippers Galore
Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Double Dippers Galore

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

It's a rare busy week for two-start pitchers as over half the teams in the league have a full seven game schedule with the rest scheduled for six contests. This is the perfect week to really see how the second start affects rankings, emphasizing the good while penalizing the bad. 

Even though the calendar flipped to May, Mother Nature didn't get the memo. Weather is still an issue, likely shuffling the probable pitching as the weekend fleshes out. Please remember to check out the final rankings on Sunday night.

For the week May 6-12.

UPDATED SUNDAY MAY 5, 11:00 PM ET
