Week #7 for Two-Start Treasures got overlooked while I was playing catch-up after being away. I realized this while I was preparing for week #8. So there are no holes in my posting schedule, I’m providing week seven below. With the All-Star games occurring in the LoA and HiA leagues, pitcher rotation schedules were thrown out of whack, and this kept pitchers from those leagues from qualifying. I will have Week #8 posted shortly and then the recap for the month of June. It seems the season is screaming by and post-season work will be soon upon us.
If you missed the TST’s from week #6, you can find it here. Last season, I thought it would be fun to include with my tracking the UTR pitchers who made two starts within the week and dominated. 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.
So, let’s highlight the two-starters from June 19th to June 25th. I’ve also included Double-A pitchers and, as always, I throw in the best Relief performance for the week too.
