Dynasty League Positional Rankings

The Top 175 Starting Pitchers

by Bret Sayre


Previous articles in this series:

We, at Baseball Prospectus, have been talking about starting pitchers for a while now (over a week and change to be exact, depending on when you are reading this) and the party continues to rage on. Yet before we rage, we shall calibrate—since rankings aren’t useful without knowing what you’re reading. The list you are about to read here presupposes a 16-team standard (read: 5x5 roto) dynasty format, in which there are no contracts/salaries, players can be kept forever, and owners have minor-league farm systems in which to hoard prospects. So feel free to adjust this as necessary for your individual league, whether it’s moving non-elite prospects without 2016 ETAs down if you don’t have separate farm teams or moving lower-risk, lower-reward players up in deeper mixed or -only formats.

Making sense of starters as a whole isn’t something that’s worth the internet paper it’s written on—but we can look at this large and amorphous group to determine a few key things. First, there is a big cluster of potential SP2s in baseball these days. In fact, you could argue that all of the pitchers from 15 or 16 overall to the early 40s qualify in that tier.>
