Notes 
 Has averaged 18 Wins, 257 K, a 3.09 ERA and 1.05 WHIP over the past 5 seasons - spring finger injury was cause for concern given he was forced to change his grip, but he's back to normal and should be business as usual to start the regular season
Brandon Funston - Independent
 
 Not only did Scherzer set a career-best 284 Ks last season, but he also led the league with a 0.968 WHIP and 20 wins. With that being said, drafting a pitcher with over 900 innings over the past four seasons is always dangerous because of elevated injury risk.
