Welcome back to another edition of our rankings! Hopefully these Daily SP Rankings are helping you make you all-important drop/add decisions! Note that there are 16 games tomorrow, but only 30 probable starters below. The Phillies and the Rangers haven’t announced their starters yet.Here are a trio of notes I have for Tuesday’s probable starters, which don’t exactly scream “ace starter” despite some impressive numerical ratings:A.J. Burnett on the road against the Padres? Matchups don’t get much juicier than that as Burnett runs away with today’s number one spot.Tyson Ross has had a very good season, and that’s not just because he has some RP innings pushing down his stats. Still, I do see some luck in Ross’ peripherals so I wouldn’t exactly place him where the numbers do.Dan Haren looks like a sleeper pick on the road at Chicago and ranked 24th, especially given how well he’s performed of late, but a closer look at Haren’s numbers over the last month or two show he’s been the beneficiary of some good fly ball luck. That hasn’t happened for Haren in about four years, which tells me this isn’t his luck finally changing for the better. Haren’s normal luck looks like bad luck for everyone else (see: Joe Blanton‘s HR/FB rate). I’m not buying the late-season surge.For Monday’s rankings, click here.For an in-depth explanation of how these rankings were compiled, click here.RankPitcherH/AOpponentProj. IPProj. ERProj.
