Updated PoD Category Chart (6/19)

Hey everyone,

Back in April, who would’ve thought that R.A. Dickey and Lance Lynn would be crowned aces by mid-June? Dickey and Lynn’s promotions headline our newest version of the Pitch or Ditch category chart.

Pitch or Ditch Chart 6-19

Here are the changes we’ve made since the last chart:


Dickey grad to ace

Lynn grad to ace

Masterson PoD to grad

Buchholz PoD to grad

Miley PoD to grad

Burnett PoD to grad

Kuroda PoD to grad

Nova PoD to grad

Quintana indifferent to PoD

Richards indifferent to PoD


Romero ace to grad

Gallardo ace to grad

Latos grad to PoD

Floyd grad to PoD

Nolasco grad to PoD

Gomez PoD to indifferent

Kendrick PoD to indifferent

White PoD to indifferent

And once again, a reminder as to how the chart works:

We’ve divided all of the current starting rotation pitchers in the Majors into five groups: Aces, Grads (pitchers who should not be dropped and can be started almost all the time), Pitch or Ditch (guys who you should be picking up to start in favorable matchups but do not deserve a regular roster spot), DTMs (guys who we are fed up with and would not start under any circumstances for the time being) and Indifferents (guys who we don’t feel any ill-will towards but who just aren’t that good). Keep in mind that these classifications are very much subject to change throughout the season based on performance. We’ll be updating the chart every other week.

All feedback is welcome!
