The following 50 pitchers are expected to log two starts each for the week of July 2-8.

From my vantage point, this might be the most impressive collection of two-start assets we've had all season. A minimum of 14 pitchers could rack up 14 strikeouts and allow four runs or less over the next seven days.

For head-to-head league owners looking to squeeze out another six to nine strikeouts or one more win per week with unassuming free agents like Liam Hendriks, Andrew Cashner, Jordan Lyles or Everett Teaford, this list might have a purpose.
