Starting Pitcher Usage for 2021

DATE: Sep-26, 2020

Here is prorated starting pitcher usage chart for the coming season (which uses standard rounding):

Real GS -> RML GS

4 -> 11

5 -> 14

6 -> 16

7 -> 19

8 -> 22

9 -> 24

10 -> 27

11 -> 30

12 -> 32

13 -> 35

----------

1 -> 3

2 -> 5

3 -> 8
