Daily Lineup Information

On our live scoreboard page we now have each game’s lineup for the day. This information from now on should be available as soon as the teams announce their lineups each day, usually many hours before the game.


We’re also now using this same data to power the “Starter” field in FanGraphs: The Game, so you should know if a player is in the lineup much sooner than before.

If you think things are delayed, or there’s no lineup for a game where you think there should be, please let us know!

    Quote from the most recent Jim Bowden article for ESPN “A potential 100-win team becomes a 90- to 92- win team without a closer.”

      Which is absolutely true if, instead of having someone pitch the ninth inning when up by 3 runs, you forfeited the game because “hey no closer.”

    Is there any chance of making this information available via an API?

      Sorry, but I don’t know how to do that. You can just go the ESPN website and click on the Bowden “10 Bold Predictions for 2013” article, though.
