Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Strasburg on a Roll
Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Strasburg on a Roll

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

The first full week of June brings one of the quirkier schedules as there are only four games on Monday's docket, and that includes a makeup from an early season rain out. This avails only 32 two-start pitchers, with a scant few lower-end candidates to fortify your rotation. As such, this could be a week to use a middle reliever like Ryan Pressly as opposed to a lesser starter with just one game.

For the week June 3-9.
