The Fantasy Baseball Forecaster pitching grid has been updated as of Sunday, June 18, at 9:15 a.m. ET.

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 quickly as possible. Good luck this season!


Here's the scheduled starter for each game from June 12-18, 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:

The New York Yankees, who needed a fill-in for CC Sabathia (DL: hamstring) on June 18, will give Luis Cessa a spot start on that day.

James Shields (DL: lat), who made a third rehabilitation start for Triple-A Charlotte on June 13, will rejoin the Chicago White Sox's rotation on June 18. Derek Holland will have his next start pushed back into Week 12.

Hector Santiago (DL: shoulder) is not expected to be ready to rejoin the Minnesota Twins' rotation during Week 11.

Kyle Hendricks (DL: finger) suffered a setback and will not be ready to rejoin the Chicago Cubs' rotation during Week 11.

Tyler Anderson (DL: knee) will throw a bullpen session June 13 and is likely to need a minor league rehabilitation start before rejoining the Colorado Rockies' rotation, putting his anticipated return most likely during Week 12.

Kenta Maeda will make a spot start for the Los Angeles Dodgers on June 18, affording the team's other starters an additional day's rest apiece.
