Two-Start Treasures / May 16 to May 22

Its Week #6 for Two-Start Treasures. If you missed the TST’s from Week #5, you can find it here. With this new feature, I thought it would be interesting include with my tracking, the UTR pitchers who made two starts within the week and should recieve extra recognition. I used to do this during our time providing content to MLBDepthCharts.com (now RosterResources.com) when it was just a Pitcher of the Week feature. Now that I throw a list of pitchers at our readers each day, really good back-to-back outings could get lost in the mix. Plus, a pitcher might have been solid in two starts, but didn’t make the daily mention due to being bumped.

As always, I’m throwing in the best Relief performance too. Seasons Stats are up to the day of posting. The next TST installment (May 23rd to May 29th ) will be posted next Wednesday. Continue reading
