Welcome to the new and improved version of the Fantasy Baseball Forecaster! This year, we've reorganized the story into four parts; it's the same great intel, but you get right where you need to go as fast as possible. Good luck this season!


Here's the scheduled starter for each game scheduled from April 17 to 23, including a projected game score for each pitcher in each matchup. A 50 is typically deemed a "quality start" by this measure, while a 70 is considered a dominant start:

Brian Johnson made a spot start in place of Eduardo Rodriguez (paternity list) on April 18, but Rodriguez is expected to rejoin the Boston Red Sox in time for his next scheduled start on April 23.

Alex Meyer joined the Los Angeles Angels' rotation on April 21, pushing the team's other starters back a day apiece. Daniel Wright is expected to make a spot start for the Angels on April 23, after originally scheduled starter Jesse Chavez was needed in relief on April 21.

The Colorado Rockies are expected to go with a four-man rotation during Week 3 while Jon Gray (DL: foot) is sidelined.
