2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings

Expert Consensus Ranking (54 of 56 Experts) -
Rank Player (Team, Position) Overall Notes
1 Max Scherzer (WSH - SP) 6 1 3 1.2 0.4 4.0 -2.0
Conventional wisdom has cautioned against taking a pitcher in the opening round. Scherzer, however, has earned an exception. The added risk of hurlers keeps investors away early, but Washington's ace has posted a sub-3.00 ERA, sub-1.00 WHIP, and at least 268 strikeouts in 200 innings in each of the last four seasons. He hit 300 punchouts last season with the best swinging-strike rate (16.2%) of any qualified starter. Although pitchers can malfunction without any prior notice, Scherzer has earned a seat at the first-round table.
2 Chris Sale (BOS - SP) 10 1 6 2.5 0.9 11.0 +1.0
If a shoulder injury hadn't limited him to 158 innings, Sale would be competing with Max Scherzer for the top SP slot. He led all starters (with at least 150 IP) in K-BB% (32.9) and FIP (1.98) while posting a 2.11 ERA and 0.86 WHIP. While he'll draw no sympathy from Jacob deGrom, a dozen wins in 27 starts is a bit underwhelming for a superstar pitching for the World Series champions. He had previously topped 200 innings in three straight seasons and is turning 30 around Opening Day, so he's not necessarily a significant injury risk compared to the typical starter. Sale is a stud worth selecting as a staff anchor to end the first or commence the second round.
3 Jacob deGrom (NYM - SP) DL10 11 1 7 2.7 0.8 10.0 -1.0
Because of his suffering, deGrom might have killed the win for good. He became the first qualified starter since 2015 to post an ERA (1.70) or FIP (1.99) below 2.00 and the first since Clayton Kershaw in 2014 to do both. He recorded 28 quality starts in 32 turns, but only won 10 games because wins and the Mets are bad. He'd be destined for better fortune even if backed up by a Double-A lineup, but the Mets have added Robinson Cano, Jed Lowrie, and Wilson Ramos to a now quality lineup. He closed the season with 24 straight quality starts, offering at least six strikeouts each time. His ERA will rise above 2.00, maybe even 2.50, but deGrom is a legitimate top-three ace who should pair 250 strikeouts with elite ratios, and probably more wins.
4 Justin Verlander (HOU - SP) 21 2 10 4.5 1.1 21.0
Pitchers aren't supposed to dominate like this in their mid-30s. In his age-35 campaign, Verlander defied the aging curve by posting a 2.90 ERA, 0.90 WHIP, and MLB-high 34.8 K% in 214 innings. He has recorded a 2.97 ERA over the last three seasons, clearing 200 innings and strikeouts apiece each time. Including the playoffs, he has notched a 2.41 ERA since joining the Astros, so age is the only justification to avoid him as a top-five ace. Don't be afraid to grab him near the end-of-second, early-third round.
5 Gerrit Cole (HOU - SP) 24 4 10 6.1 1.4 27.0 +3.0
The Astros unlocked Cole's ace upside by tabling a middling sinker for more sliders and curveballs. He also revamped his fastball, which yielded a .268 wOBA after allowing a .334 wOBA in his last year with the Pirates. As a result, his strikeout and swinging-strike rates skyrocketed to 34.5 and 14.1%, respectively. His contact rate dropped eight points to 71.5, and he earned his 2.88 ERA with a 2.70 FIP and 2.91 SIERA. Trust the breakout and treat the strikeout artist on a title contender as a borderline top-five hurler alongside teammate Justin Verlander.
6 Corey Kluber (CLE - SP) 25 3 17 6.3 1.7 24.0 -1.0
There's great stability in drafting Kluber, who has averaged 218 innings and 245 strikeouts with a 2.85 ERA in the last five seasons. Such stability is highly desirable from a top-10 ace who will require premium draft capital. Before deeming him a lock, beware the diminished velocity and a sinker that continues to get pounded. It's still hard to see Kluber-who turns 33 in April-falling off a clip, so his floor is relatively high compared to other starters.
7 Aaron Nola (PHI - SP) 29 3 13 7.1 2.0 25.0 -4.0
Nola won't sustain a pristine 2.37 ERA, but only nine starters posted a higher FIP than his 3.01. He yielded the second-lowest hard-hit rate (25.1%) behind Zack Wheeler and should keep striking out more than a batter per frame with support from his 12.4% swinging-strike rate. Although 2018 represents his ceiling, the 25-year-old's regression should still represent a lower-level ace.
8 Blake Snell (TB - SP) DL10 33 3 16 8.5 1.9 28.0 -5.0
Snell is going to regress. That's not necessarily a cause for panic, as his ERA could rise a full run and remain a resounding 2.89. His control (9.1 BB%) is lacking for a top-tier ace, but Tampa Bay's southpaw also permitted the lowest contact rate (66.6%) of all qualified starters while sporting the fourth-best swinging-strike rate (15.1%). He could approach 240-250 strikeouts with an innings uptick, so don't flea as long as his price factors in some regression.
9 Carlos Carrasco (CLE - SP) 34 7 15 9.4 1.5 36.0 +2.0
To little fanfare, Carrasco has finally morphed into the ace everyone has chased for years. Dealing with durability problems throughout his career, Cleveland's overlooked stud has posted ERAs of 3.29 and 3.38 in 200 and 192 innings, respectively, over the last two years. Each time he notched a K/9 above 10.0 and BB/9 slightly above 2.00. He ranked inside the top 10 in FIP (2.98), swinging-strike rate (15.2%), and contact rate (69.2%) among qualified starters in 2018, but isn't always getting drafted like a top-10 ace. He's a great affordable anchor to target in the fourth round.
10 Trevor Bauer (CLE - SP) 35 1 17 9.5 2.3 31.0 -4.0
A viable Cy Young Award contender before suffering a stress fracture in his right fibula, Bauer boasted a 2.21 ERA and 221 strikeouts over 175.1 spectacular frames. Only Jacob deGrom bested him in FIP (2.44), and he leaned more on a slider that yielded a -8 wRC+. If the injury depresses his value, pounce on a top-10 stud.
11 Noah Syndergaard (NYM - SP) 40 2 27 11.2 3.3 35.0 -5.0
The SP1 ceiling remains for Syndergaard, who registered a 3.03 ERA over 154.1 innings last year. Baseball's hardest-throwing starter submitted the lowest hard-hit rate (21.9%) and barrels per plate appearance (1.4%). His K/9 dropped nearly a run despite maintaining an elite 13.6% swinging-strike rate, so he could return to upper-echelon strikeout dominance. Although elite on a per-inning basis, he has never exceeded 183.1 frames in a single season. He's not durable enough to trust as a top-10 ace, but Thor could easily invade that territory by staying healthy.
12 Walker Buehler (LAD - SP) 45 4 39 12.8 2.5 40.0 -5.0
Buehler lived up to the hype and more in his first extended stint in the Big Leagues, posting a 2.62 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 9.9 K/9 rate across 137 1/3 innings. His peripherals suggest his ERA is due to rise into the low-3.00s, but make no mistake, he is the real deal. The bigger question is how many innings the Dodgers will let him throw this season. Last season's total represented a big jump, and the Dodgers are notorious for rotating six or seven starters in and out of their rotation, so it is best to expect Buehler to throw around 150 innings and take anything beyond that as a bonus.
13 Edwin Diaz (NYM - RP) 55 5 23 16.4 3.2 50.0 -5.0
There is a top tier of three or four closers, but among them, Diaz is likely the best. He racked up 124 Ks in 73 innings last year, and while you can't bank on 57 saves again, 40 is well within question for a surprisingly good Mets team this year. His ratios will surely be stellar, but even so, with only 70 innings, they won't help you enough to warrant using a fifth or even earlier pick on him or any other closer.
14 James Paxton (NYY - SP) 54 11 31 16.4 3.9 49.0 -5.0
Paxton was excellent last year with a whopping 208 Ks in just 160 innings, but this is also the first time he ever pitched above 140 innings. While the ceiling is clearly exciting with Paxton, re-injury is a significant risk, but he is moving from one of the best pitching parks in Seattle to one of the worst at Yankee Stadium.
15 Stephen Strasburg (WSH - SP) 59 11 31 17.3 4.1 59.0
It's bad enough Strasburg, still yet to make 30 starts since 2014, threw just 130 innings in 2018. He also recorded the worst ERA (3.74) and FIP (3.62) of his career. Rises in hard-hit rate and exit velocity are concerning, but an elevated 15.7 HR/FB% ultimately did him in. Even if he bounces back to a 3.50 ERA or lower, investors can't reasonably bank on more than 150 innings, a mark he has met once in the last four seasons. Time is running out for the 30-year-old to reach his Cy Young ceiling.
16 Patrick Corbin (WSH - SP) 61 9 42 17.5 4.6 47.0 -14.0
Corbin's breakout came as a result of leaning more on a devastating slider that yielded a .195 wOBA and 29.3% swinging-strike rate. It steered him to MLB's third-lowest FIP (2.47), seventh-highest strikeout % (30.8), and second-lowest contact rate (66.8%) among all qualified starters. The peripherals back the 29-year-old southpaw's breakout, but skeptics will point to an alarming 41.7% hard-hit rate and lack of a second plus pitch. Luckily the market is bearish enough on an encore to price Corbin as a high-end No. 2 starter rather than staff anchor.
17 Jack Flaherty (STL - SP) 64 11 54 19.7 6.3 60.0 -4.0
Flaherty's 3.34 ERA and 182 strikeouts in 151 rookie innings will justifiably make him a popular pick. Buoyed by a lethal slider and a curveball that didn't yield a single extra-base hit, there's easy 200-strikeout upside if he pitches a full season. Yet a 3.52 BB/9 and 57.2% first-pitch rate make the 23-year-old riskier than the typical SP2. He's best paired with a steady, reliable ace.
18 Zack Greinke (ARI - SP) 66 11 41 20.2 5.3 56.0 -10.0
Greinke has posted superbly similar ERAs (3.20, 3.21) and WHIP (1.07, 1.08) in the last two years, but the heavily used 35-year-old comes with some warning signs. His average fastball velocity slipped to 89.6 mph, leading to a .361 wOBA against the pitch. He also benefited from his lowest BABIP (.272) and highest strand rate (80.2) since 2015's 1.66 ERA. A cerebral pitcher with elite control, Greinke should avoid bottoming out entirely. Yet the risk is there. He's someone to draft as a steady SP2 rather than a staff anchor.
19 Blake Treinen (OAK - RP) 68 13 36 21.4 4.4 62.0 -6.0
Treinen was magical last season, floating a 0.78 ERA and 0.834 WHIP to go with 100 Ks and 38 saves. That made him the number two fantasy closer behind only Edwin Diaz, and that is precisely how he should be drafted this year. With that said, no closer taken in the first five rounds ever returns enough value so be patient.
20 Jameson Taillon (PIT - SP) 69 11 40 22.1 6.0 66.0 -3.0
Taillon quietly developed into an ace late in 2018, posting a 2.63 ERA over his last 21 starts. That's not an entirely arbitrary endpoint, as he unleashed a slider-one of three pitches to net a double-digit swinging-strike rate-in June. The pitch could help him unlock a few more punchouts, but the 27-year-old has the look of a polished SP2 who can at least post a mid-threes ERA with a steady WHIP and 8.5 K/9.
21 Kenley Jansen (LAD - RP) 74 10 33 23.0 3.7 71.0 -3.0
What felt like a disastrous season for Jansen would have been great for most other relievers. He registered a career-high 3.01 ERA and career-low 10.3 K/9 substantially below his career average of 13.5. Health is his primary concern after undergoing heart surgery over the offseason, and he reportedly lost 25 pounds and is "ready to roll." Although no longer the premier closer in town, he's still a top-five option.
22 Mike Clevinger (CLE - SP) DL60 73 11 62 23.2 7.5 58.0 -15.0
Clevinger rose to the next level in the second half, posting a 2.31 ERA and 89 strikeouts in 78 innings. While he outperformed his overall 3.52 FIP and 3.86 SIERA with a 3.02 ERA, 2018 marked the second straight year he defied the peripherals. A high infield-fly rate (11.2%) and low barrel rate (5.8%) led him to a .280 xwOBA, so don't expect severe regression from the borderline top-20 starter.
23 Aroldis Chapman (NYY - RP) 78 14 39 24.9 4.1 70.0 -8.0
Chapman has been exceptional for nearly a decade now. It may surprise you to learn that he hasn't struck out 100 batters since 2015, though. Edwin Diaz, meanwhile, had 123 last year to go with 25 more saves than Aroldis. Chapman is obviously one of the top closers in baseball still, but doesn't deserve any consideration as a top 50 fantasy pick.
24 Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP) 77 8 51 25.0 9.2 54.0 -23.0
Last year, drafters accepted the dice roll of taking 180 otherworldly innings from Kershaw. The gambit fell short not only because of his 161.1 frames--he hasn't topped 175 since 2015--but his performance when healthy. A 2.73 ERA and 1.03 WHIP are still stellar, and he maintained excellent command by issuing 29 walks over 26 starts. Yet his 23.9 K% represents the lowest rate of any starter inside the ECR's top 15. He may not be better than Trevor Bauer, Blake Snell, Carlos Carrasco, or Luis Severino on a per-inning basis, so why take the veteran southpaw knowing back woes (and the Dodgers' careful rotation management) will shield him well short of 200 frames? Spring setbacks should make drafters even more cautious about taking him as a top-15 starter.
25 Jose Berrios (MIN - SP) 76 6 47 25.1 7.4 73.0 -3.0
His ERA only improved slightly from 3.89 to 3.84, but Berrios made major strides last season. His swinging-strike rate lunged from 9.4 to 11.2%, leading to 202 punchouts in a career-high 192.1 frames. Although his walk rate (2.85 BB/9) also improved just slightly, he upped his first-pitch strike % significantly from 59.1 to 64.5. Berrios could take a major leap in his age-25 season, but the ERA estimators (3.90 FP, 4.29 SIERA) and career 5.31 road ERA urge some caution.
26 Luis Severino (NYY - SP) DL10 85 7 65 26.6 10.6 68.0 -17.0
Over the past two seasons, only Scherzer, Sale, Verlander, deGrom and Kluber have a better ERA and more strikeouts than Severino, who is quickly becoming a true durable ace. He doesn't belong in that first tier, but may already lead the next group.
27 Brad Hand (CLE - RP) 91 10 41 29.0 4.6 81.0 -10.0
Some investors spent the entire season wondering when a trade would cost Hand his recently gained closing role in San Diego. Although not a full-time closer for Cleveland, he recorded eight saves in 28 outings to finish with 32. Of course, it's the 2.75 ERA and 104 strikeouts-Dellin Betances is the only other reliever to record triple-digit Ks in each of the last two seasons-that make him such an attractive fantasy asset. While Terry Francona may want to use his best reliever in high-leverage spots a la Andrew Miller, he no longer has Cody Allen to handle the final frame. Even if he shares the spotlight occasionally, Hand makes a top-10 stopper on the strength of a seismic strikeout tally.
28 Zack Wheeler (NYM - SP) 94 13 92 30.1 10.1 85.0 -9.0
Written off after an ineffective 2017 (5.21 ERA) following two season lost to Tommy John surgery, Wheeler unlocked his ace potential late last season. He was nearly as good as Jacob deGrom after the All-Star break, boasting a 1.68 ERA and 20.4 K-BB% in 11 starts. He went at least seven innings in nine of them and averaged 6.3 innings per start on the season. Fueled by a stellar heater, no qualified starter acquiesced a lower hard-hit rate (26.6%), and just two (deGrom and Max Scherzer) generated more soft contact. Another 180 innings, which is far from a given, is all Wheeler needs to give the Mets and fantasy investors another ace.
29 Roberto Osuna (HOU - RP) 96 19 53 30.9 5.8 77.0 -19.0
Osuna didn't accomplish much last year because of his legal issues and the time missed as a result, but he as still extremely efficient, driving a 2.37 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP. Assuming he stays on the field, you can bank on 30 saves and plenty of strikeouts on top of the strong ratios.
30 Felipe Vazquez (PIT - RP) 97 14 66 31.5 5.7 86.0 -11.0
One of baseball's hardest throwers, Vazquez has accrued a 2.17 ERA, 2.45 FIP, and 10.96 K/9 over the past two seasons combined. The 27-year-old is locked into Pittsburgh's closer gig after collecting 37 saves last year. A perfect blend of job stability and elite strikeout upside makes him closer to target after waiting out the more expensive top tier.
31 David Price (BOS - SP) 101 19 66 32.3 6.9 84.0 -17.0
Despite posting a 3.58 ERA and 177 strikeouts in 176 innings, Price showed some alarming signs of decline. His average fastball velocity dropped over a full tick, leading to his worst swinging-strike rate (9.6%) since 2013. His expected run-prevention metrics (4.02 FIP, 3.82 SIERA) also say he's no longer an ace. Yet he also recorded a 2.25 ERA after the All-Star break before vanquishing his postseason demons. The public seems well aware of the warning signs, so he won't make the worst SP2/3 if snagged beyond the top-20 starters.
32 German Marquez (COL - SP) 102 11 96 34.4 14.4 82.0 -20.0
Marquez discovered top-tier ace form during 14 second-half starts, during which he recorded a 2.61 ERA and 2.25 FIP with the fourth-best K-BB% (28.4) behind Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, and Jacob deGrom. So why isn't he a consensus top-20 starter? Opponents tattooed his four-seam fastball (.315/.390/.508) last season, so his curveball and slider would have to remain other-worldly elite in elevated usage rates. Oh yeah, he pitches for the Rockies. He's an attractive upside selection if Coors Field tempers his price.
33 Miles Mikolas (STL - SP) 106 16 88 35.4 9.5 98.0 -8.0
It's easy to dismiss Mikolas' breakout as a fluke. In his first season back from a three-year stint in Japan, the righty registered 18 wins and a 2.83 ERA in 200.2 innings despite collecting just 146 strikeouts. The ERA will at least rise to his 3.28 FIP, if not higher, but the 30-year-old isn't necessarily a full-blown bust waiting to happen. No qualified starter submitted a lower walk rate (3.6%) than Mikolas, who limited hard contact and induced a 49.3% ground-ball rate. Also, he's not some mid-80s junkballer pitching solely to contact. A 9.6% swinging-strike rate finished right above David Price on the leaderboard, so there's at least a path to 160 punchouts. He throws harder, but Mikolas' final line could resemble Kyle Hendricks in 2018 (199 IP, 3.44 ERA, 161 K).
34 Charlie Morton (TB - SP) 109 19 80 37.8 9.5 114.0 +5.0
Morton followed an improbable late-career renaissance with an even better 2018. In his most innings pitched (167) since 2011, he etched out a 3.13 ERA and 201 strikeouts. Yet he wore down as the season transpired, as his K rate dropped seven points to 24.2% after the All-Star break. Given his durability concerns and struggles when facing a batting order for the third time, the Rays will likely keep limiting him to five innings per start (or even have him follow an opener). Morton will perform on a per-inning basis, but investors should probably expect results closer to 2017's 3.62 ERA and 163 strikeouts in 146.2 innings.
35 Masahiro Tanaka (NYY - SP) 112 20 60 38.6 6.9 120.0 +8.0
Tanaka's xFIP (3.42) and SIERA (3.50) dropped 0.02 points apiece, but his ERA plunged nearly a full run from 4.74 to 3.75. That works just fine when paired with a 1.13 WHIP and 9.17 K/9. His elite skills support last season's approved ERA if he can avoid home-run catastrophe in Yankee Stadium. Just prepare to assume some added volatility when his splitter isn't clicking, and he's more likely to work 160 innings than 190. Those risks are all factored into his reasonable SP3 price.
36 Craig Kimbrel (RP) FA 115 17 110 39.2 12.7 93.0 -22.0
Kimbrel still hasn't signed so wherever he plays will obviously impact his fantasy upside. Boston would offer plenty more save opportunities, of course, than somewhere like San Diego. You can bank on excellent ratios with nearly 100 Ks regardless, however, so don't hesitate to grab him toward the end of the top tier of closers once again.
37 Sean Doolittle (WSH - RP) 113 21 62 39.3 7.3 102.0 -11.0
Doolittle only had 25 saves and 60 strikeouts last year, but he had an absurd 0.600 WHIP. That isn't a typo. With a full season, don't be surprised when Doolittle finishes in the elite tier of fantasy closers.
38 Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP) 116 18 67 40.2 9.6 96.0 -20.0
A dirt-bike accident in 2017 and broken hand suffered last spring limited Bumgarner to 240.2 combined innings in the past two seasons. He had previously exceeded 200 in each of the last six seasons. While he could regain his workhorse label in 2019, the 29-year-old must combat declines in velocity, swinging strikes (9.2%), and strikeouts (19.8%). Don't pay for past success, but take him as a stable, high-floor SP3 if everyone else is fading the owner of a career 3.03 ERA.
39 Kirby Yates (SD - RP) 119 24 89 41.8 8.8 108.0 -11.0
The Padres aren't expected to compete with the Dodgers or even Rockies for the division, but San Diego plays in enough low scoring close games that their closers tend to rack up the saves. This year should be no different for their new closer, who just so happened to be one of the best setup men in baseball before Brad Hand left the closer job open. Yates should find his way to 80+ Ks to go with amazing ratios once again.
40 Robbie Ray (ARI - SP) 118 26 118 42.3 10.7 116.0 -2.0
Everything went right for Ray in 2017, when he registered a 2.89 ERA despite a 3.94 BB/9 and 3.72 FIP. An oblique strain limited him to just 123.2 innings in 24 starts last season, and 70 walks led to a 3.93 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. He remained just as tough to hit with a .215 batting average against and 12.01 K/9, so he could bounce back to the 218 strikeouts procured in 2016 and 2017 even if again held below 175 frames. Yet the ballooning walk rate makes him a WHIP liability, and run support could be scarce from a ransacked Diamondbacks lineup.
41 Luis Castillo (CIN - SP) 120 22 78 42.7 9.6 128.0 +8.0
One of last spring's top breakout candidates, Castillo posted an underwhelming 4.30 ERA. This year's version of Castillo is … still Castillo. While he started strong, the hard-throwing righty belatedly met the hype with a 2.44 ERA, 69 strikeouts, and 14 walks in 66.1 second-half frames. A 13.5% swinging-strike rate points to elite strikeout potential, so there's still an ace looming if he can curtail last year's home-run woes. While this could be a case of doubling down on the same mistake, Castillo is once a desirable high-upside SP3 target.
42 Chris Archer (PIT - SP) 121 13 78 43.9 11.8 124.0 +3.0
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, well, look at all those strikeouts. Fool me three times … but his FIP is still lower. Even though he missed over a month with an abdominal strain last year, Archer has amassed the sixth-most strikeouts (644) over the last three seasons. He has collected a 3.64 FIP and 3.54 SIERA during that span. His ERA also ballooned above 4.00 each year. How many times can we keep putting our hand on the hot stove? Archer's fastball has ceded a slugging percentage above .500 in each campaign, so he wields no other effective pitch beyond his slider. He's an elite source of strikeouts, but don't expect a positive ERA contribution.
43 Josh Hader (MIL - RP) 123 19 117 44.2 15.3 105.0 -18.0
You may not get a dozen saves out of Hader again, but the 143 strikeouts and lights out ratios are here to stay. Those video game numbers make him a top 10 fantasy relief pitcher, as you won't find anyone more apt to help you in those three big categories.
44 Kyle Hendricks (CHC - SP) 125 14 97 44.6 11.6 126.0 +1.0
His success defies common convention, but how many times does Hendricks have to prove himself as a sustainable anomaly? He boasts a 3.07 career ERA in 789 innings, only once going over 3.45 (3.95 in 2015). He has made at least 30 starts in three of the last four seasons, and a stellar 5.4% walk rate led to a 1.15 WHIP in 2018. Despite his lacking velocity, The Professor typically records 160-170 strikeouts over a full season of work. He's a boring, but effective SP3 to pair with high-upside strikeout pitchers.
45 Raisel Iglesias (CIN - RP) 129 22 76 46.3 10.5 125.0 -4.0
Iglesias has been one of the better closers over the past two seasons with 58 saves and 172 Ks, but the Reds have been suggesting that he might not be the every day closer this year. The Ks and ratios would still be good enough to own even if he didn't get any saves, but this undoubtedly causes a hit in his overall fantasy value.
46 Yu Darvish (CHC - SP) 128 8 93 46.4 11.7 143.0 +15.0
Arthroscopic elbow surgery limited Darvish to eight starts in 2018. Adding insult to injury, he wasn't even good (4.95 ERA) in his brief time on the mound. He has now pitched 327 innings over the last four seasons combined. Darvish reportedly added 10-15 pounds of muscle during the offseason, and he said he feels far more comfortable in Chicago after dealing with pressure from signing a hefty contract. There's always the chance he stays healthy and drafters steal an ace with a career 3.49 ERA and 11.04 K/9. There's also, however, enough risk to proceed with caution. He's the ultimate boom-or-bust SP3.
47 Jose Leclerc (TEX - RP) 131 26 87 47.7 9.9 118.0 -13.0
Don't look now, but Leclerc may already be the most dominant reliever in baseball. His ERA last year was 1.56 with a 0.850 WHIP and 13.3 K/9. The saves could triple to 35+ this season so don't hesitate to reach a few rounds to secure a stud on draft day.
48 Shane Bieber (CLE - SP) 133 24 226 50.6 16.1 149.0 +16.0
Baseball fans could soon think of that pop singer as the other Bieber. After generating a 13.68 K/BB ratio (!) throughout his minor league career, the Cleveland righty recorded 118 strikeouts to 23 walks in 114.2 big league frames. He also, however, got pegged to a 4.55 ERA. Lefties crushed him (.311/.362/.547), and a subpar four-seam fastball didn't fool anyone. Yet he also boasted a 3.23 FIP with a superb slider that submitted a 26.2% swinging-strike rate. Corey Kluber and Corey Carrasco have emerged as aces despite mediocre heaters, so perhaps Cleveland can apply the same winning formula to Bieber. He's still reasonably priced as a mid-range breakout pick, but it wouldn't be surprising to see his ADP skyrocket this spring.
49 Wade Davis (COL - RP) 135 24 84 53.4 9.7 121.0 -14.0
It only takes one bad week to torpedo a reliever's season. Davis relinquished eight runs in three outings from Aug. 2-9, raising his ERA from 4.20 to 5.51. He recovered back to 4.13 by allowing one run over his last 18 innings, but the final line remains far too high for a pricey reliever. Despite looking more like his dominant self down the stretch, diminished velocity and a putrid 49.4% first-pitch strike rate pose major problems. The Rockies kept him in the ninth all season over the clearly superior Adam Ottavino, who signed with the Yankees, so job security makes Davis one of few "saves are saves" picks still left on the table.
50 Rich Hill (LAD - SP) DL10 143 16 110 55.5 15.3 174.0 +31.0
Hill has developed into a high-end fantasy starter in his mid-30s, posting no worse than a 3.66 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, and 10.18 K/9 over each of the last three seasons. Of course, he's never thrown more than 136 innings in any of those seasons, and we can't expect him to do it this year, either. But he's proven he can be a very valuable fantasy commodity in limited innings, particularly in leagues with a low innings cap.
51 Nick Pivetta (PHI - SP) MiLB 141 31 247 56.0 17.4 151.0 +10.0
Most metrics paint Pivetta as the perfect breakout pick. On the strength of a stellar 19.7 K-BB%, he posted a 3.80 FIP and 3.51 SIERA despite a bloated 4.77 ERA. He possesses an excellent curveball and slider combination that each induced swinging-strike rates above 15.0%. Before going all in on a Cy Young Award dark horse, beware an abysmal fastball that surrendered a .302/.385/.516 slash line. His ups and downs also weren't predictable, as he went from silencing the Red Sox to getting stuffed by the Mets in consecutive August outings. There's enough upside to draft him as a top-40 hurler. Just don't assume he's a sure thing to slice his ERA by at least a full run.
52 Eduardo Rodriguez (BOS - SP) 139 24 97 56.3 14.6 150.0 +11.0
An intriguing option when healthy, Rodriguez took another step forward with a 3.82 ERA, 3.65 FIP, and 10.13 K/9 in 2018. Good luck getting a full season out of the lefty. Knee and ankle injuries contained him to 129.2 frames, so he has yet to make 25 starts for more than 137.1 frames in a single season. He flaunted a high ceiling by mixing in fewer four-seamers in favor of a cutter, and he has reportedly spent the offseason working on his slider with help from Chris Sale and Pedro Martinez. Drafters must prepare to make up the lost innings elsewhere, but he's nevertheless the type of high-strikeout hurler worth targeting after locking down sturdier rotation anchors.
53 J.A. Happ (NYY - SP) 142 27 111 56.3 13.2 131.0 -11.0
The undervalued Happ massively out-performed his 2018 draft pick despite posting his highest ERA (3.65) since 2014. He now owns a 3.49 ERA and 8.45 K/9 over those past four seasons, and yet many drafters have scoffed at him going around the pick-150 range. Seems like a reasonable price for someone who accompanied his career-high 193 strikeouts with a career-high 10.3% swinging-strike rate and career-low 78.3% contact rate. He looked comfortable in pinstripes (2.69 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) and could once again reap the rewards of run support to a crooked wins tally. Don't run away just because the southpaw is 36.
54 Ken Giles (TOR - RP) 146 38 124 58.6 14.6 144.0 -2.0
Giles may have been an elite closer in 2015 and 2017, but his other two seasons have been disappointing for fantasy owners. Although he straightened is out with Toronto in his final 20 innings, we were still looking at a low K-rate and an ERA over 4.00. Plus, it isn't like there will be a ton of save opportunities in Toronto like he saw in Houston the past few years.
55 Cole Hamels (CHC - SP) 147 35 102 58.8 12.6 146.0 -1.0
Looking caput in Texas, a late trade to the Cubs sparked a revival for Hamels. The veteran southpaw sported a 2.36 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 74 strikeouts in 76.1 innings (12 starts) with his new club. He repaired first-pitch strike (60.1%) and swinging-strike (12.1%) rates that had dipped to alarming levels (56.4%, 9.7%) in 2017, so the 35-year-old may have another strong season left in the tank. Having made at least 30 starts with 188 or more strikeouts in eight of the last nine seasons, Hamels is a more appealing mid-draft workhorse to target ahead of teammates Jose Quintana and Jake Arrieta.
56 David Robertson (PHI - RP) DL10 148 30 153 58.9 14.2 145.0 -3.0
It was easy to forget how great Robertson is since he only managed 19 saves over the past two seasons. He has racked up 88 Ks per season and excellent ratios over the last 8 years, however. With plenty of save opportunities in store, we could see him return to being a top 10 closer this year.
57 Mike Foltynewicz (ATL - SP) DL10 149 15 102 56.8 14.8 112.0 -37.0
After posting an ERA north of 4.00 in each of his first three seasons, Foltynewicz put up a shiny 2.85 ERA in 2018. Part of that was due to a fortunate BABIP allowed of just .251, but he also earned some of the gain by boosting his K/9 rate from 8.36 to 9.93. While some regression should be expected, the bigger concern is that Folty has complained of elbow soreness this spring and may not be ready for Opening Day. That above all else should give fantasy owners pause.
58 Kenta Maeda (LAD - SP) 152 30 101 65.0 12.2 175.0 +23.0
Maeda recorded a 3.30 FIP and 27.7 K% as a starter before getting moved to the bullpen with a case of Dodgeritis. The Dodgers indicated that he will open with a rotation spot in lieu of Ross Stripling and Julio Urias, but he remains reasonably priced around the pick-200 range. That's a fair cost to pay for 130 innings with ample strikeouts and ratios close to his career 3.80 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. Ride him out of the gate, but consider trading Maeda before another bullpen move if he starts strong.
59 Cody Allen (LAA - RP) 156 26 110 66.2 11.4 156.0
It seemed as though Ty Buttrey, Bedrosian and Anderson were going to compete for saves in LA, but then they signed Allen who figures to get the job. Don't be surprised if he losses the gig early, however, if he struggles like we saw last season. Don't consider him a lock for 25 saves again.
60 Nathan Eovaldi (BOS - SP) DL10 166 40 151 66.9 17.6 159.0 -7.0
Always one of baseball's hardest-throwing starters, Eovaldi finally parlayed his high-90s heater to a career-high 22.2 K% supported by a 10.7% swinging-strike rate. He also lowered his walk rate to a career-low 4.4%, leading to a 1.13 WHIP, 3.60 FIP, and 3.23 Deserved Run Average (DRA, per Baseball Prospectus). After re-signing with the Red Sox, he'd be one of the spring's top breakout picks if not for glaring durability and inconsistency concerns. Last year, he went from yielding one run in three combined starts to 21 in his next four. Eovaldi might give investors some headaches on the way to strong SP4 numbers in 150 innings.
61 Jose Quintana (CHC - SP) 157 29 142 67.0 13.6 165.0 +8.0
 
62 Rick Porcello (BOS - SP) 162 37 145 67.9 17.1 148.0 -14.0
 
63 Jose Alvarado (TB - RP) 163 34 121 69.9 18.7 166.0 +3.0
With a full season as the Rays' closer, Alvarado could end up one of the top 10 closers in baseball. There is some more risk with him than the guys who have done it for years, but we could be looking at 90 Ks with excellent ratios and 35 saves which makes him a total steal late in drafts.
64 Yusei Kikuchi (SEA - SP) 168 29 115 70.8 16.2 163.0 -5.0
Kikuchi's numbers from Japan translate to an MLB pitcher similar to Zack Wheeler last year, and like Wheeler, Kikuchi's arm could potentially blossom into much more to fantasy owners. He is by no means similar to Ohtani or Darvish before him, but 370 Ks and a 2.45 ERA in his last two seasons is nothing to sneeze at.
65 Will Smith (SF - RP) 171 43 111 74.7 13.8 297.0 +126.0
Smith and Mark Melancon will reportedly enter spring training as the top two candidates to serve as the Giants' closer in 2019. While Smith has clearly done far more to deserve the job, the Giants' desire to save face on Melancon's bloated $62 million contract may make him the slight favorite. After posting a strong 2.55 ERA and 0.98 WHIP in the role last season, Smith could be a very good fantasy closer if he's able to win the job.
66 Jake Arrieta (PHI - SP) 175 37 120 76.1 15.3 191.0 +16.0
 
67 Hyun-Jin Ryu (LAD - SP) 178 38 132 72.6 15.2 181.0 +3.0
Ryu was terrific when healthy last season, posting a 1.97 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 9.73 K/9 across 15 starts. You can never expect more than around 100 innings from Ryu, but they'll be good innings -- think a 3.50 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 9+ K/9.
68 Jon Gray (COL - SP) 176 19 114 74.6 16.7 190.0 +14.0
Drafters would be forgiven for giving up on Gray, who continually fails to transfer his FIP (3.68) to a strong ERA (4.65). Coors can't take the full blame; he posted a 5.34 ERA on the road last season. Demoted during the season, he threw out a triumphant July return (1.66) by yielding 35 runs in his final 58.2 frames. With a four-seamer rocked to a career .326/.401/.512 slash line, Gray might never escape this purgatory, at least not with the Rockies. Then again, at least he's cheap now. Given the elite strikeout stuff, he might be worth a dart throw in shallower leagues. Investors, however, must be willing to pull the cord if his Jekyll and Hyde profile persists.
69 Jordan Hicks (STL - RP) 181 45 217 79.2 16.2 185.0 +4.0
Contrary to popular belief, Hicks is the favorite to land the Cardinals' closer job over Andrew Miller this season. He may not be as dynamite a reliever, but Hicks is excellent in his own respect. If he does get the job, expect loads of save opportunities to go with 70+ Ks and excellent ratios.
70 Joey Lucchesi (SD - SP) 183 30 156 75.6 22.2 196.0 +13.0
 
71 Tyler Glasnow (TB - SP,RP) 182 14 216 69.6 30.1 162.0 -20.0
Looking like a lost cause in Pittsburgh, Glasnow revitalized his career following a midseason trade to Tampa Bay. The former elite prospect posted a 4.20 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, and 64 strikeouts in 55.2 frames. The burgeoning hype would be much bigger if not for getting tagged for seven runs by Toronto in the first frame on Sept. 5. His 19 walks in 11 starts actually represented a stark, and workable improvement over past abhorrent command, and he has reportedly thrown his fastball at 98.7 mph (a full two ticks above last season's average velocity) in camp. His rising price is going to skyrocket if the 6'8" righty throws that hard in a spring training game.
72 Tyler Skaggs (LAA - SP) DL10 196 57 134 85.7 17.1 217.0 +21.0
Skaggs sported a 2.66 ERA prior to getting dismantled for 10 runs on July 31. After going on the shelf with an adductor strain, he allowed seven runs in his return before landing right back on the DL. Those calamities, and a couple of other rough outings to end the season, torpedoed his final ERA to 4.02. Yet he also recorded a 3.64 FIP, 24.2 K% 11.0% swinging-strike rate through 24 starts. The messy finish concealed his first-half breakout, which is hardly reflected in his cost outside the top-50 starters.
73 Joe Musgrove (PIT - SP) 193 45 133 78.4 19.2 208.0 +15.0
Despite his career 21.0% strikeout rate, Musgrove offers upside potential as a late-round flier. An 11.5% swinging-strike rate suggests he could fan more batters, especially if he maintains last summer's uptick in slider usage. He also wields excellent control, as shown by issuing just seven walks in 10 second-half starts. His .281 xwOBA matched that of Patrick Corbin, narrowly besting James Paxton and Pirates teammate Jameson Taillon. He has the makings of a sneaky SP3 who will only cost a bench pick.
74 Arodys Vizcaino (ATL - RP) DL10 197 50 152 87.4 17.9 182.0 -15.0
Braves manager Brian Snitker recently suggested that the team could play matchups in the eighth and ninth innings, which means that both the right-handed Vizcaino and left-handed A.J. Minter could see plenty of save opportunities in 2019. Most major league hitters are right-handed, so Vizcaino is the favorite to again lead Atlanta in saves when all is said and done. His walk rate is higher than you'd like, but he's outperformed his peripherals for most of his career, so it wouldn't be shocking if he managed another sub-3.00 ERA.
75 Andrew Miller (STL - RP) 195 42 164 84.6 19.6 214.0 +19.0
The Cardinals acquired Miller this offseason, but they appear unlikely to use him exclusively in the ninth inning. Still, Miller is the definition of the kind of dominant reliever who belongs on fantasy rosters in many leagues even if he isn't closing.
76 Jon Lester (CHC - SP) DL10 194 38 115 80.3 17.0 161.0 -33.0
Jon Lester had 18 wins with a 3.32 ERA in 2018, so everyone seems to just assume he is still an ace. That couldn't be further from the truth, however. His skill-indicative ERA was 47th out of 57 qualified pitchers and he was a disaster in the second half. Like his former teammate, Jake Arrieta, things can fall apart quickly even for those who were once at the top of the game. He shouldn't be touched until at least the 13th round in a standard sized redraft league this year.
77 Mychal Givens (BAL - RP) 204 54 142 90.2 18.8 255.0 +51.0
Although Baltimore may only win 50 games, Givens is one of the closers who has no competition for saves on his team. Even 25 save opportunities is better than what someone like Josh Hader or Zach Britton will get. Pair that with another 80 strikeouts and respectable ratios and we are looking at a top 30 fantasy reliever.
78 Ross Stripling (LAD - SP,RP) 207 41 216 76.6 26.9 192.0 -15.0
Stripling may have faded toward the end of the season, but his start to the season was so absurd that he still managed to finish top five in xFIP among all starting pitchers with at least 120 innings. Stripling is like Mike Clevinger this time last year in that his dominant sample size is large enough to assume he can be a top 30 starting pitcher with a full season worth of work.
79 Chris Paddack (SD - SP) 198 41 139 76.7 21.2 227.0 +29.0
One of this spring's trendiest risers, Paddack has turned heads with 20 strikeouts and two walks in 12.2 frames. This type of dominance is nothing new for the 6'4" righty, who registered an absurd 120 strikeouts to eight walks in 90 innings between Single-A and Double-A last season. After signing Manny Machado, the Padres may call up their prized prospect early in the season to prove they mean business. Yet Paddack assumed a limited workload last season after undergoing Tommy John in 2016, so he still may not toss more than 145 major league innings despite making the Opening Day roster. That's a problem to worry about later; the rookie needs to be owned in all leagues.
80 Andrew Heaney (LAA - SP) DL10 203 41 141 78.0 20.6 189.0 -14.0
Following a rocky return from Tommy John surgery, Heaney made major strides by submitting 180 strikeouts in as many innings last season. Since he also issued just 45 walks, a 3.74 SIERA hints at improvement from last season's 4.15 ERA. The spotty health history and mediocre sinker present concerns, but he flashed ace upside with five double-digit strikeout gems. Don't sleep on Heaney as a borderline top-40 starter with breakout appeal. Early elbow discomfort, however, will push back his 2019 debut.
81 Kyle Freeland (COL - SP) 210 40 158 84.0 23.6 158.0 -52.0
 
82 Pedro Strop (CHC - RP) 212 43 148 95.8 19.4 226.0 +14.0
Strop is currently penciled in to serve as the Cubs' closer, at least until Brandon Morrow returns from an elbow injury. With a 2.61 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 10.1 K/9 over the last five seasons, Strop has proven to be a fantasy asset in many formats even when he isn't closing games. He could well be a top-10 closer for however long he's allowed to handle the job. That uncertainty puts a bit of a damper on Strop's draft stock, but he is still a solid selection in the middle rounds of drafts.
83 Alex Colome (CWS - RP) 216 42 215 92.7 25.7 203.0 -13.0
Colome is reportedly the favorite to see most of the saves chances, but Kelvin Herrera and Nate Jones could also factor into the ninth inning at times. Colome isn't quite the dominant pitcher he appeared to be back in 2016, but he got his strikeout rate back over a batter per inning last season and he has tended to slightly outperform his peripherals. Perhaps most importantly, he's shown he can handle the ninth inning. It's not a lock that he'll run away with the job or hold it all season, but he could be a sneaky source of saves with serviceable ratios.
84 Alex Wood (CIN - SP) DL10 215 43 152 84.4 17.6 230.0 +15.0
Wood seems to be a perennially underrated fantasy option. He's compiled a strong 3.29 ERA and 1.21 WHIP through 803 1/3 innings since 2013, most of them coming as a starter. He will call a hitter-friendly ballpark home for the first time this year, but his ability to generate ground balls should help mitigate the damage. He also won't have to fight for a rotation spot like he did in Los Angeles, meaning a boost in innings could be in store.
85 Collin McHugh (HOU - RP,SP) 209 35 131 77.0 22.2 210.0 +1.0
McHugh was terrific in relief for the Astros last season and is now slated for a return to the starting rotation. This is a pitcher capable of helping in ERA, WHIP, and strikeouts, and the win potential is certainly there as well. He's a nice sleeper.
86 Steven Matz (NYM - SP) 218 60 135 93.7 15.0 258.0 +40.0
 
87 Dallas Keuchel (SP) FA 219 44 179 82.0 25.3 183.0 -36.0
Keuchel will open 2019 without a team. Even if he signs, don't get too excited. Remember how a prolonged free agency worked out for Alex Cobb, Lance Lynn, and Greg Holland last year? After posting a 3.74 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with an underwhelming 153 strikeouts in 204.2 innings, the 31-year-old lefty isn't particularly alluring in shallow mixed leagues anyway. Drafters shouldn't feel too guilty about dropping him in a 10- or 12-team mixed league with limited bench slots.
88 Dellin Betances (NYY - RP) DL10 243 58 154 99.8 20.0 244.0 +1.0
Betances could work his way into save chances if something happens to Aroldis Chapman. But even if Chapman remains healthy and effective, Betances is worth owning in leagues where non-closing relievers are rostered as a source of elite strikeouts and ratios.
89 Zack Godley (ARI - SP) 224 50 139 94.1 15.5 246.0 +22.0
 
90 Archie Bradley (ARI - RP) 239 52 125 94.4 15.6 207.0 -32.0
Bradley isn't a 90 strikeout guy, nor should we expect an ERA south of 2.00, but he is the heavy favorite to get saves in Arizona, which certainly counts for something. Granted, they won't win 80 games, but even 35 saves is plenty to warrant a late-round pick.
91 Kevin Gausman (ATL - SP) 234 57 154 91.8 19.8 209.0 -25.0
Gausman will begin 2019 on the IL with a minor shoulder injury, but he could return as soon as April 5. He's still a sneaky post-hype sleeper whose strikeout rate dipped to 19.1% despite a career-high 11.3% swinging-strike rate. Once freed from Baltimore, he boasted a 2.87 ERA in 10 starts with the Braves.
92 Sean Newcomb (ATL - SP) MiLB 236 40 123 94.1 19.3 213.0 -23.0
 
93 Trevor May (MIN - SP,RP) 231 61 221 99.9 24.2 240.0 +9.0
Plenty are suggesting that Blake Parker was brought in to be the closer for Minnesota, but
94 Matt Barnes (BOS - RP) 232 38 149 90.0 19.5 205.0 -27.0
There may be no other relief pitcher who is slipping under the radar as much as Barnes. Unless the Red Sox sign Craig Kimbrel, it seems as though Barnes will be the closer for a team that should win around 100 games once again. Don't hesitate to grab him late if your draft happens before Kimbrel signs.
95 Carlos Martinez (STL - SP) DL10 240 34 182 92.0 28.4 194.0 -46.0
Although prone to waning command on a start-to-start basis, Martinez had offered year-to-year consistency for three durable seasons before a shoulder injury limited him to 119.2 innings last season. He allowed three runs in 18.1 innings as a reliever down the stretch, which reportedly had the Cardinals considering a bullpen role even before shutting him down with a shoulder setback. The 27-year-old righty, who owns a career 3.37 ERA and 8.82 K/9, may no longer be available to open 2019 in the rotation. Daring drafters could snag him at an even cheaper price, but the health and usage risks alongside last year's 11.5% walk rate make him far from a lock to rebound.
96 Marco Gonzales (SEA - SP) 242 35 135 99.6 16.8 229.0 -13.0
 
97 Shane Greene (DET - RP) 247 70 179 105.8 17.7 249.0 +2.0
Although Greene had a rough 2018 season, he comes into this year as the expected closer for Detroit. Joe Jimenez might take over before long, but as long as Greene continues to offer saves and strikeouts, he deserves a roster spot.
98 Shohei Ohtani (LAA - SP,DH) DL10 206 31 140 69.6 21.1 171.0 -35.0
Regardless of how the league's host site manages the Ohtani dilemma, he'll only contribute as a hitter after undergoing Tommy John surgery last season. He won't be ready for Opening Day in that capacity either. The Japanese phenom exceeded expectations inside the batter's box, batting .285/.361/.564 with 22 homers and 10 steals (13 HRs and eight SBs over the final two months) in just 357 plate appearances. There's 30/15 potential, but enough health and playing-time concerns not to pay top dollar for it.
99 Luke Weaver (ARI - SP) 248 54 567 118.4 70.2 310.0 +62.0
 
100 Seranthony Dominguez (PHI - SP,RP) 245 47 165 95.9 20.1 256.0 +11.0
The majority of Dominguez' appeal was ruined when the Phillies signed David Robertson, who will almost certainly be their closer. With that said, Dominguez should be a three-category monster and well worth owning even without the saves.
101 Sonny Gray (CIN - SP) DTD 253 72 171 110.8 22.2 268.0 +15.0
 
102 A.J. Minter (ATL - RP) 254 71 208 106.6 23.6 275.0 +21.0
Minter was supposed to be in the heat of the competition for saves in Atlanta, and while that may happen down the road, an injury setback for him has handed the job over to Vizcaino. Unless you play in a deeper league, this should make Minter undraftable, but worth keeping an eye on in free agency.
103 Jimmy Nelson (MIL - SP) DL10 250 40 219 102.1 26.7 371.0 +121.0
 
104 Alex Reyes (STL - SP) MiLB 261 50 189 104.1 26.3 261.0
Believe it or not, Reyes should be ready to go out of Spring Training. You may be worried about Adam Wainwright beating him out for the #5 spot in the Cardinals' rotation, but they have made it clear that they want Reyes in the rotation. He has to be one of the favorites to win NL Rookie of the Year as he is polished and absolutely dominant.
105 Kyle Gibson (MIN - SP) 271 70 181 103.6 21.5 293.0 +22.0
 
106 Josh James (HOU - SP) 264 63 161 104.4 22.8 222.0 -42.0
Josh James went from one of the best sleepers in fantasy baseball this year to a draft and stash when news surfaced that he has a strained quad and is now out of the rotation battle. Chances are that he will start in the minor leagues and be called up the moment a spot in the rotation becomes available. From the moment it happens, he should be a top 30 starter.
107 Brandon Morrow (CHC - RP) DL10 258 66 218 112.6 27.6 278.0 +20.0
It sounds as though Morrow is going to miss the start of the season. That could very well turn into multiple months as we've seen with "minor" pitching injuries many times before. It is a dangerous game to draft based on injury optimism, even if the closer does have considerable upside.
108 Drew Steckenrider (MIA - RP) 267 75 155 110.7 17.0 305.0 +38.0
The Marlins likely won't win 70 games, but even so, there will be saves to be found on the roster and Steckenrider is the early favorite to get the job done. How long the role stays his is anyone's guess, but saves are saves so add him late if you are desperate.
109 Matt Strahm (SD - SP,RP) 251 59 163 93.2 22.0 262.0 +11.0
Strahm is the ultimate sleeper, as he is a great bet to post killer numbers if he beats out the odds and makes the Padres rotation. He has been a stud in the bullpen when healthy but may end up there once again.
110 Corey Knebel (MIL - RP) DL60 259 34 232 94.1 42.2 193.0 -66.0
Knebel was injured and had a rough year, but still tallied up 88 strikeouts in 55 innings with a killer WHIP. Expect the ERA to improve closer to that 1.78 rate from 2017, and with that and a full bill of health should come a bounceback to 30 or even 40 saves.
111 Hunter Strickland (SEA - RP) DL60 262 44 244 106.2 37.6 219.0 -43.0
The Mariners are in the midst of a complete rebuild, but one under-the-radar move they made this offseason was signing Hunter Strickland away from the Giants on a one-year deal. Strickland took a step backward last year while also suffering a broken hand, but he posted some solid numbers the previous three years. Mariners manager Scott Servais has indicated that the team may not have a "set closer," but Seattle may have an incentive to settle on Strickland as the closer to inflate his trade value. As such, Strickland could be a decent late-round option for saves, even though the chance he's eventually traded to a contender is fairly high.
112 Julio Urias (LAD - SP) 277 30 199 105.7 34.9 266.0 -11.0
 
113 Brad Peacock (HOU - RP,SP) 274 40 185 95.0 28.5 247.0 -27.0
Peacock has been very effective as both a starter and reliever for the Astros over the last two seasons and looks likely to open the season in Houston's rotation this year. While it's possible he's eventually pushed out by Josh James or Forrest Whitley, Peacock can be nearly as valuable as a reliever, particularly in innings-capped roto leagues. He's well worth drafting.
114 Dylan Bundy (BAL - SP) 287 68 196 120.7 20.2 280.0 -7.0
 
115 Carlos Rodon (CWS - SP) 289 62 197 112.0 27.7 279.0 -10.0
 
116 Michael Wacha (STL - SP) 309 75 164 119.0 22.0 271.0 -38.0
 
117 Kelvin Herrera (CWS - RP) 314 85 231 129.9 27.5 306.0 -8.0
Herrera was presumably signed to close for the White Sox, but they also added Alex Colome who has closing experience. This one is too close to call for now so you may want to add both in a late round just to make sure you get some saves.
118 Brandon Woodruff (MIL - SP,RP) 294 65 196 113.3 33.1 276.0 -18.0
 
119 Blake Parker (MIN - RP) 305 69 205 121.6 30.9 382.0 +77.0
After Parker signed with the Twins, many assumed he will be the closer, but it seems as though Trevor May is the favorite. In fact, Parker is likely the third-best reliever in this bullpen behind May and Rogers so beware on draft day.
120 Anibal Sanchez (WSH - SP) 303 63 225 115.8 35.7 294.0 -9.0
 
121 Matthew Boyd (DET - SP) 299 53 193 117.1 33.8 299.0
 
122 Michael Pineda (MIN - SP) 298 55 183 111.9 24.0 329.0 +31.0
 
123 Greg Holland (ARI - RP) 301 71 285 125.4 53.9 289.0 -12.0
Despite posting a 4.66 ERA last season and struggling to reach 90 mph in spring, Holland will open 2019 as Arizona's closer. Best-case scenario: He keeps the job and records 30 saves with an ugly ERA like Brad Boxberger last season. He could just as easily lose the job to Archie Bradley or Yoshihisa Hirano in April, so he's best deployed in deeper leagues.
124 Jesus Luzardo (OAK - SP) MiLB 307 73 226 121.3 35.4 259.0 -48.0
Oakland's rotation is a total mystery. We may not see Luzardo until September, or he could even break camp as their ace. The fact of the matter is that this 21-year-old lefty will answer the bell when it is time. He was dominant last year in the minors, striking out 129 in 109 innings with a 2.88 ERA and 1.088 WHIP. It was enough to cause his stock to soar from fringe top 100 prospect to fringe top 10. If it wasn't for Whitley in Houston, we'd be talking about Luzardo as perhaps the best pitcher in the minors.
125 Jhoulys Chacin (MIL - SP) 310 58 164 117.5 26.6 237.0 -73.0
 
126 Freddy Peralta (MIL - SP) DL10 308 76 163 112.9 20.2 301.0 -7.0
Despite finishing top 10 in both strikeouts per nine innings and batting average against, Peralta is somehow not a lock to make the Brewers' rotation. If he pitches well enough in spring training, we've got one of the favorite candidates to break out this season. He'll have to earn his shot first.
127 Brad Boxberger (KC - RP) 318 90 240 130.6 30.4 300.0 -18.0
Boxberger is expected to hold off Peralta for the Royals' closer job, and while it may not be the most envied role, he should still be able to compile 20 to 25 saves if he can hang onto the job. His ratios won't be ideal, but he does offer some K-upside as we've seen before.
128 Marcus Stroman (TOR - SP) 319 76 199 122.8 24.6 277.0 -42.0
 
129 Julio Teheran (ATL - SP) 331 43 182 126.5 26.1 238.0 -93.0
 
130 Adam Ottavino (NYY - RP) 337 69 175 131.6 19.7 287.0 -50.0
Ottavino might be stuck behind Chapman, Betances, Britton and Chad Green for the closer job, but he is a force of nature who could strike out 100 batters this season to go with sparkling ratios and a handful of wins. Don't hesitate to add him late in drafts to boost you in three categories.
131 Ryan Brasier (BOS - RP) 320 63 258 119.7 32.3 356.0 +36.0
Assuming the Red Sox keep their word and don't re-sign Kimbrel, Braiser will be battling it out with Matt Barnes for one of the most coveted closer jobs in the league. If he wins it, you can count on stellar ratios to go along with all the save opportunities.
132 Reynaldo Lopez (CWS - SP) 315 78 233 122.6 32.1 284.0 -31.0
 
133 Vince Velasquez (PHI - SP) 327 79 165 120.5 19.1 386.0 +59.0
 
134 Mike Minor (TEX - SP) 321 56 225 122.2 35.7 320.0 -1.0
 
135 Jakob Junis (KC - SP) 325 65 268 122.5 37.9 319.0 -6.0
 
136 Jeremy Jeffress (MIL - RP) 339 67 172 130.2 24.6 286.0 -53.0
Jeffress could again see save opportunities in Milwaukee this season, but Corey Knebel is the favorite to lead the closer committee. Regardless, Jeffress can help enough in other areas (Ks, ERA, WHIP) to be worth rostering in many formats even if he isn't closing. If you're skeptical, consider this: Josh Hader and Jeffress finished as the third and fourth most-valuable relievers in standard 5
137 Corbin Burnes (MIL - RP) MiLB 330 41 183 125.0 30.4 296.0 -34.0
 
138 Sergio Romo (MIA - SP,RP) 341 84 250 132.3 37.0 399.0 +58.0
 
139 Trevor Richards (MIA - SP) 334 93 159 125.6 20.1 357.0 +23.0
Richards carried a 4.42 ERA with 4 wins last year and formerly played independent baseball after going undrafted. It helps, however, that he has the best changeup in baseball. Richards' changeup is Trevor Hoffman-esque. It carried a 41.2% whiff rate with a .214 xWOBA. It certainly helped his performance when he adjusted by throwing it 38% of the time instead of 23% of the time at the start of the season. In those closing months, hitters were so focused on his filthy change-up that his slider suddenly became even more deadly than the changeup. With two of the most useful pitches in baseball, Richards could breakout this year in Miami much like Jake Peavy did in in 2004 after a rough start to his career.
140 Mike Soroka (ATL - SP) 355 78 212 135.8 31.7 416.0 +61.0
With five, yes FIVE, talented starting pitchers ready to make a rookie splash in Atlanta, projection models aren't too sure what to make of Soroka, but he is the most polished and we expect him to come out of Spring Training with a spot in the rotation. Soroka has premier command of his pitches, and while he isn't a big strikeout guy, we could be looking at a Kyle Hendricks like fantasy asset. That is someone you'll want to get your hands on if he emerges as the Braves #5 starter.
141 Ryan Pressly (HOU - RP) 333 64 170 124.6 23.7 316.0 -17.0
Pressly isn't expected to pick up more than a save or two this season because of Roberto Osuna's presence, but if Osuna were to suffer an injury, Pressly would likely take over the job and be a top 10 closer right away.
142 Caleb Smith (MIA - SP) 336 67 212 128.4 25.7 395.0 +59.0
 
143 Jeff Samardzija (SF - SP) 338 76 329 143.4 47.9 453.0 +115.0
 
144 Forrest Whitley (HOU - SP) MiLB 343 65 236 129.0 35.2 273.0 -70.0
The Astros replaced Keuchel with Wade Miley and Charlie Morton with rookie Josh James, but now that he is hurt, you'd better believe that as soon as Whitley is ready, the Astros will call him up. Assuming that is before the All-Star break, Whitley is an excellent draft and stash option if you have enough bench spots. He could have a Walker Buehler like impact from the get-go.
145 Tanner Roark (CIN - SP) 369 51 213 137.5 28.5 346.0 -23.0
 
146 Trevor Williams (PIT - SP) 342 61 215 132.9 36.0 292.0 -50.0
 
147 Derek Holland (SF - SP) 352 69 576 156.5 99.5 388.0 +36.0
 
148 Danny Duffy (KC - SP) DL10 358 90 208 140.5 23.9 458.0 +100.0
 
149 Chad Green (NYY - RP) 372 78 225 130.7 31.0 349.0 -23.0
Green wasn't as electric in 2018 as the year before, but he still registered 94 strikeouts with excellent ratios and 8 wins. He isn't the closer, nor does he have a path to saves, but you can certainly make a case for drafting him even in standard sized leagues.
150 Domingo German (NYY - SP,RP) 366 76 439 154.1 71.1 363.0 -3.0
 
151 Jeurys Familia (NYM - RP) 381 94 235 145.4 36.0 348.0 -33.0
The Mets added the best closer in baseball this off-season so Familia takes a step back, but if anything happens to Diaz, Familia is the clear closer-in-waiting and would be top 20 at the position right away.
152 Joe Jimenez (DET - RP) 353 72 415 146.4 65.5 397.0 +44.0
Most depth charts have Shane Greene slotted into the closer role for Detroit but this job is up in the air. Jimenez was an all-star last season, and while he pitched poorly down the stretch, don't sleep on him winning the job this spring.
153 Mark Melancon (SF - RP) 377 109 256 160.1 36.6 408.0 +31.0
Melancon and Will Smith will reportedly enter spring training as the top two candidates to serve as the Giants' closer in 2019. While Smith has clearly done far more to deserve the job, the Giants' desire to save face on Melancon's bloated $62 million contract may make him the slight favorite. If the job goes to Melancon, he'll be worth owning in case he can rediscover his past form, but the chances of him blowing up your ERA and/or WHIP would be significant.
154 Dereck Rodriguez (SF - SP) 367 77 177 138.0 19.4 295.0 -72.0
 
155 Zach Eflin (PHI - SP,RP) 368 76 306 147.3 46.3 304.0 -64.0
 
156 Mike Fiers (OAK - SP) 382 105 265 150.8 33.8 338.0 -44.0
 
157 Jake Odorizzi (MIN - SP) 374 69 204 152.1 27.8 448.0 +74.0
 
158 Keone Kela (PIT - RP) 388 84 229 154.6 34.7 402.0 +14.0
Vasquez is the closer in Pittsburgh for now, but Kela has immense upside if he slips up or is injured so be sure to keep him on waiver wire speed dial.
159 Pablo Lopez (MIA - SP,RP) 373 78 199 147.4 31.3 498.0 +125.0
 
160 Zack Britton (NYY - RP) 387 84 220 151.3 25.8 315.0 -72.0
Britton isn't going to be the closer in New York, nor is he likely the next man up since Dellin Betances is also ahead of him, but Britton is still well worth owning if your league allows you to start four or five relievers. He will help your ratios significantly while adding nearly 80 Ks as usual.
161 Chase Anderson (MIL - SP) 402 64 227 145.1 39.3 383.0 -19.0
 
162 Anthony DeSclafani (CIN - SP) 384 109 222 157.4 29.0 445.0 +61.0
 
163 Trevor Cahill (LAA - SP) 378 93 185 151.4 19.8 452.0 +74.0
 
164 Tyler Anderson (COL - SP) DL10 383 82 173 146.5 21.7 464.0 +81.0
 
165 Merrill Kelly (ARI - P) 408 86 221 158.9 28.7 465.0 +57.0
Kelly is a real player, believe it or not. The reason you haven't heard of him is because he has been playing in South Korea the last few years. You might not know it from looking, but his 3.60 ERA and 9.0 K/9 actually made him the most impressive pitcher in the KBO. The reason, of course, is that virtually every game in that league is played in a Coors Field like offensive environment. Kelly doesn't quite have the control of a Miles Mikolas, but he has better strikeout stuff and could be every bit the surprise off the waiver wire in April if he makes the rotation.
166 Diego Castillo (TB - RP) 399 71 204 139.9 32.3 468.0 +69.0
If you play in a deeper league, Castillo can be a ratio master that racks up plenty of saves, or better yet, if you employ the Marmol Strategy, Castillo qualifies as a starting pitcher so you can plug him on days where you don't have enough starters going.
167 Seth Lugo (NYM - SP,RP) 395 103 197 140.5 19.8 454.0 +59.0
Lugo is one of those rare assets who qualifies as both a starting pitcher and reliever. Most likely, he will be used exclusively in the bullpen where he may pile up another 100 innings of stellar ratios.
168 Jose Urena (MIA - SP) 397 108 275 159.2 39.5 422.0 +25.0
 
169 Touki Toussaint (ATL - SP) MiLB 394 73 230 149.4 37.4 333.0 -61.0
 
170 Brad Keller (KC - SP,RP) 413 97 287 163.5 41.3 361.0 -52.0
 
171 Wily Peralta (KC - RP) 422 95 456 189.8 76.4 332.0 -90.0
Boxberger is expected to have the closer job in Kansas City to start the season, but he is among the worst closers in baseball so keep Peralta on speed dial in case he takes over the job.
172 Kyle Wright (ATL - SP) MiLB 390 83 523 183.9 100.5 420.0 +30.0
 
173 Wade Miley (HOU - SP) 398 80 302 173.3 59.0 358.0 -40.0
 
174 Ryan Yarbrough (TB - SP,RP) 415 106 205 170.1 20.1 334.0 -81.0

178 Aaron Sanchez (TOR - SP) DTD 434 80 419 187.5 68.7 328.0 -106.0
 
179 Craig Stammen (SD - RP) 441 95 223 164.2 27.6 660.0 +219.0
 
180 Trevor Rosenthal (WSH - RP) 446 82 284 168.2 52.4 466.0 +20.0
 
181 Chris Devenski (HOU - RP) 481 128 282 180.3 37.5 431.0 -50.0
 
182 Mike Leake (SEA - SP) 443 91 274 171.5 39.4 463.0 +20.0
 
183 Yonny Chirinos (TB - SP,RP) 409 96 229 162.1 33.3 411.0 +2.0

188 Joakim Soria (OAK - RP) 464 124 297 198.1 42.8 629.0 +165.0
 
189 Carl Edwards Jr. (CHC - RP) MiLB 463 103 213 181.2 20.7 368.0 -95.0
It seems as though Pedro Strop will be the closer to open the season and eventually Brandon Morrow will get the job back. There is a chance Edwards slips in as the closer, however, but he has plenty of upside regardless of saves.
190 Drew Pomeranz (SF - SP) 459 97 617 212.7 116.5 414.0 -45.0
 
191 Danny Salazar (CLE - SP) DL60 450 127 214 171.3 20.4 585.0 +135.0

193 Ivan Nova (CWS - SP) 451 121 271 198.0 40.7 598.0 +147.0
 
194 Lance Lynn (TEX - SP) 455 98 397 196.9 67.8 551.0 +96.0
 
195 Lou Trivino (OAK - RP) 454 131 280 183.4 36.6 486.0 +32.0
 
196 Steve Cishek (CHC - RP) 483 126 273 186.6 43.8 418.0 -65.0
With Brandon Morrow out, the Cubs' closer job will likely end up in Strop or Edwards' hands, but keep an eye on Cishek just in case he takes the coveted role for a month or two to start the season.
197 Taylor Rogers (MIN - RP) 490 109 289 196.8 49.7 587.0 +97.0
May and Parker are seemingly in a batter at the top of Minnesota's depth chart, but Rogers is the type of guy who could find himself in the role at some point, and if it were to happen, he would dominate.
198 Nick Kingham (PIT - SP) 460 110 366 201.8 60.7 600.0 +140.0
 
199 Jonathan Loaisiga (NYY - SP) MiLB 467 88 357 202.2 54.6 426.0 -41.0

208 Framber Valdez (HOU - SP) 484 121 264 204.6 24.1 542.0 +58.0
 
209 Brent Honeywell Jr. (TB - SP) MiLB 477 124 224 183.8 20.7 558.0 +81.0
Honeywell was ready for the MLB rotation last year before he was shut down for the season. There is a chance he breaks camp with the big league club in Tampa, but more likely, he will get more seasoning in the minors before making the jump. When he does, we are probably looking at a top 60 fantasy starting pitcher.
210 Alex Cobb (BAL - SP) 472 84 410 213.7 82.6 516.0 +44.0

216 Robbie Erlin (SD - SP,RP) 508 88 460 211.5 85.5 590.0 +82.0
Erlin may not be a household name and you'll never feel sexy about drafting him, but if you want quality ratios, especially WHIP, he will answer the call late into drafts as your 6th starting pitcher.

Hudson has quality stuff and produced for the Redbirds last season, but he is going to have a difficult time beating out both Alex Wainwright and Alex Reyes for the final spot in St. Louis' rotation. If it happens, he will be worth owning, but don't bank on it until we get more info.

269 Jace Fry (CWS - RP) 638 179 340 259.4 50.2 599.0 -39.0
The closer job in Chicago seems to be between Herrera and Colome, but don't be shocked if Fry jumps in at some point in the season, as he has the best raw stuff and numbers.

276 Jose Castillo (SD - RP) DL60 598 182 377 266.7 61.9 623.0 +25.0
Castillo is out for the first two months, but if the Padres fall behind early and dangle Kirby Yates in trades like they've done with closers in the past, don't be surprised if Castillo takes over as a dominant second-half closer.
