FantasyPros Baseball Podcast: Starting Pitcher Rankings + Manny Machado Signs with Padres
Welcome to another episode of the FantasyPros Baseball Podcast. The show is hosted by our own Bobby Sylvester (@bobbyfantasypros). He’ll be interviewing featured experts and team correspondents who will provide insight throughout the baseball season.
Which starting pitchers should you target early on and who are the best values deeper in drafts? Mike Podhorzer from RotoGraphs joined us today to help us tackle that very question, but we start off by examining Manny Machado’s outlook with the Padres (1:03). Is Blake Snell (13:20) a top-five SP this year or is he bound to regress, and does Shane Bieber (31:41) get far more hype than he deserves? Can Josh James (41:09) become a stud as a rookie if he cracks the rotation, and how sustainable is Freddy Peralta’s (56:22) strikeout rate?
