Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Kluber's May to Remember

Todd Zola

Todd has been writing about fantasy baseball since 1997. He won NL Tout Wars and Mixed LABR in 2016 as well as a multi-time league winner in the National Fantasy Baseball Championship. Todd is now setting his sights even higher: The Rotowire Staff League. Lord Zola, as he's known in the industry, won the 2013 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Article of the Year award and was named the 2017 FSWA Fantasy Baseball Writer of the Year.

Last week was one of the plushest in terms of two-start options, this week is one of the more vacuous weeks we'll encounter this season. The effect is elevating some seemingly pedestrian pitchers higher than usual as the extra whiffs and chance for a win propel them higher than many one-start hurlers.

Something to keep in mind is the followers, my name for the likes of Ryan Yarbrough and his Rays bullpen mates could be non-listed options. The problem is we're not exactly sure who'll they'll follow as their availability in the bullpen games revolves around when they last worked. Of the group, Yarbrough is the safest to use, consider him a middle-of-the-pack option.

As always, between news on injured pitchers returns, weather and managerial whims, the probable pitchers for next week will shuffle over the weekend. Sunday night's update will capture all the changes.

For the week June 4-10
