Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Slim Pickings

Weekly Pitcher Rankings: Slim Pickings

This article is part of our Weekly Pitcher Rankings series.

After last week's treasure trove of two-start pitchers, it makes sense this week's array isn't as palatable. Although, there are a handful worthy of picking up if available in your league.

Please note, the plans for the Cardinals, Cubs and Marlins are still unclear. It's not even certain when/if St. Louis will return to action.

For the week Aug. 10-16
