2019 Fantasy Baseball Rankings
Expert Consensus Ranking (64 of 67 Experts) -
|Rank||Player (Team, Position)||Overall||Notes|
|1||Max Scherzer (WSH - SP)||6||1||3||1.1||0.3||4.0||-2.0||
Looking for 18 wins, 220 innings and nearly 300 strikeouts? You can virtually lock it in with Scherzer. Not only that, be he has a 0.975 WHIP over the past six seasons. That is downright unfair. Don't hesitate to grab him late in the 1st round this year.
|2||Chris Sale (BOS - SP)||10||1||6||2.6||0.8||11.0||+1.0||
There are a handful of starting pitchers that stand out above the rest, but Sale and Scherzer may belong in a tier of their own at this point. Sale posted an unfathomable 0.861 WHIP last season and 13.5 K/9. As long as he returns to health, we could be looking at a 340 Ks
|3||Jacob deGrom (NYM - SP)||11||1||7||2.6||0.8||10.0||-1.0||
deGrom was magical in 2018 and while there is a chance that continues into this season, we have to remember that the two prior seasons, he carried a 3.32 ERA with just 382 Ks and 22 wins. While that makes for a useful pitcher, the risk of him returning to that leaves him below Sale and Scherzer's tier
|4||Justin Verlander (HOU - SP)||21||2||10||4.6||1.2||21.0||‐||
Verlander may be turning 36 years old soon, but his velocity is still as impressive as ever and he 2018 was actually his best K% (34.8%, second best 28.1%) of his career while his BB% (4.4%) was his lowest. Don't avoid him because of his age. He is rocking better than ever before
|5||Gerrit Cole (SP) FA||25||4||10||5.8||1.4||27.0||+2.0||
You can look at Cole's 3.50 second half ERA and assume he got worse over the season, but all the underlying numbers suggest he was actually better. Don't shy away from him because of a false fear of his risk. Rather, expect another 250+ strikeouts with plenty of wins and excellent ratios
|6||Corey Kluber (CLE - SP)||27||3||17||6.4||1.8||24.0||-3.0||
Each of the past five years, Kluber has given fantasy owners 200 innings while compiling 1,228 strikeouts. In four of those five seasons, he has provided 18 or more wins. If you draft him in the second round, you can be certain to get a true ace
|7||Aaron Nola (PHI - SP)||30||3||13||7.0||1.8||25.0||-5.0||
Nola took another major leap forward last year, and while he may never be a 300 or even 250 strikeout guy like the handful of pitchers being drafted above him, 220+ with a sub 1.00 WHIP and 2.50 ERA will certainly warrant a third round pick
|8||Blake Snell (TB - SP)||32||3||16||8.6||1.9||28.0||-4.0||
Snell may have posted the single greatest second half of any pitcher in the last 50 years with a 1.17 ERA, .155 BAA and 12.7 K/9. There is a chance he finishes as the #1 fantasy pitcher this season, but both Scherzer and Sale are safer bets because of their sustained reliability
|9||Carlos Carrasco (CLE - SP)||34||5||15||9.3||1.4||36.0||+2.0||
Although Cleveland doesn't pay him like it, Carrasco has been a true ace for five straight years, posting a sparkling 3.27 ERA with 193 Ks per season in that time. There is more upside with a pitcher like Syndergaard or Strasburg, but Carrasco's floor makes him one of the top 15 pitchers in this year's fantasy drafts
|10||Trevor Bauer (CIN - SP)||35||1||20||9.4||2.4||31.0||-4.0||
Prior to an injury in the second half, Bauer was among the top pitchers in baseball. He still struck out 221 batters in 175 innings, but with health, those numbers could easily climb to 270 in 215 innings
|11||Noah Syndergaard (NYM - SP)||40||2||19||10.7||2.6||35.0||-5.0||
Thor has elite stuff without a doubt, but the numbers haven't quite made it to the top tier of pitchers. Rather, he has just one season with 170 strikeouts and has yet to win 15 games. You may argue that a Cy Young is right around the corner, but we've been saying that for three years now and it is starting to look like we have another Strasburg on our hands
|12||Walker Buehler (LAD - SP)||45||4||31||12.7||2.5||40.0||-5.0||
After tearing through the minors, Buehler pitcher pretty well for the Dodgers in the first half. Then a flip switched and he proceeded to become one of the top pitchers in baseball over the second half, posting a 2.03 ERA with 92 Ks and just a .165 BA allowed in 80 innings. Draft him accordingly
|13||James Paxton (NYY - SP)||54||11||25||15.3||2.7||49.0||-5.0||
Paxton has posted back-to-back seasons with an excellent strikeout rate and WHIP, but his ERA grew by nearly a run last year thanks to a spike in his home run rate. Under normal circumstances that could be chalked up to an outlier season, but Paxton is moving to a much more homer-friendly home park this season so it is possible the long ball issue could linger. Last season's 160 1/3 innings also represented a career-high for Paxton, who is not exactly known for his durability. Expect him to be quite good when he's on the mound, but don't expect more than about 150 innings and an ERA in the mid-3.00s.
|14||Patrick Corbin (WSH - SP)||60||9||32||15.9||3.2||47.0||-13.0||
Corbin was an absolute monster last season, striking out 246 batters with a 1.05 WHIP and 3.15 ERA. Granted, those ratios are likely to jump, perhaps even half a run in ERA, but he should also add considerably to his 11 wins from 2018 now that he is in Washington
|15||Stephen Strasburg (SP) FA||59||11||23||16.1||2.7||59.0||‐||
There is a lot of appeal in drafting an upside pitcher like Strasburg, but keep in mind that he averages just 145 innings over the last four years. Even with an excellent strikeout rate, that comes to just 174 Ks per season. The ratios will likely be golden again, but know that there is plenty of risk in spending a 5th or 6th round pick on him this year
|16||Jack Flaherty (STL - SP)||64||11||44||17.6||3.7||60.0||-4.0||
Flaherty was absurdly good last season as a rookie and seemed to improve as the year went on, striking out 95 in 76 second half innings. With that said, his walk rate climbed to a dangerous 3.52 per nine innings by seasons end. He has the upside to strike out 240 batters, but there is some risk here as well
|17||Zack Greinke (HOU - SP)||66||11||27||18.2||3.5||56.0||-10.0||
Greinke's age is now 35 and he did have a rough season three years ago, but besides then, he has been phenomenal since 2009. Expect plenty more of the same in 2019 with excellent ratios, about 15 wins and around 200 strikeouts. This makes him a top 20 starting pitcher for 2019 fantasy leagues
|18||Jameson Taillon (PIT - SP)||67||11||26||18.8||3.6||66.0||-1.0||
If you look at Taillon's second half, it may seem as though he broke out into an ace, but the underlying metrics tell a different story. Rather, he was propped up by a great deal of BABIP and HR/FB ratio luck. Most likely, he will continue to pitch like a good #3 this season for Pittsburgh.
|19||Mike Clevinger (CLE - SP)||73||11||52||19.4||4.6||58.0||-15.0||
After dominating in a smaller 2017 sample size, Clevinger took it up another notch in 2018, this time with 200 innings of proof. He might not win 16 games or strikeout 240 batters like some of the top tier aces, but his ratios and 200 Ks put him firmly in the 6th-8th rounds of this season's drafts
|20||Clayton Kershaw (LAD - SP)||77||8||38||21.1||5.9||54.0||-23.0||
For the first time in a decade, there is quite a bit of risk with drafting Kershaw. He hasn't pitched 180 innings since 2015 and saw his strikeout rate plummet from 10.4 to 8.6 per nine innings. You can bank on top-notch ratios, but because of the innings a low strikeout totals and a potential shoulder injury, Kershaw has fallen into the third-tier of fantasy pitchers this year.
|21||Jose Berrios (MIN - SP)||76||6||33||21.3||4.3||73.0||-3.0||
Berrios' 2018 season was pretty similar to 2017. He made some strides in strikeout rate and WHIP, but it didn't help his ERA much thanks to a spike in home runs allowed. Berrios is a good but not great strikeout pitcher and his walk rate is just ok, so he'll need to make further improvements to live up to the hype he had as a prospect. That could certainly happen in his age-24 season, but it isn't guaranteed.
|22||Luis Severino (NYY - SP)||84||7||46||22.0||6.5||68.0||-16.0||
A Cy Young Award contender though June, Severino imploded with a 5.20 ERA over the final three months. That inconsistency is perilous for a staff headliner, but he still finished 2018 with a 3.39 ERA, 2.95 FIP, and 220 strikeouts. Despite his start-by-start inconsistency, he has delivered on a macro level in consecutive seasons. However, he will miss at least all of April with a shoulder injury, Previously a viable top-10 candidate, he's now too risky to draft as a top-25 starter.
|23||Zack Wheeler (SP) FA||92||13||64||23.6||6.6||85.0||-7.0||
Wheeler has had struggles staying on the field but even if we can get 120 innings of the way he pitched to close the season, he would prove well worth a mid-round pick's investment. He may be the breakout ace that no one in the industry seems to be talking about this year.
|24||David Price (BOS - SP)||101||18||49||25.9||4.6||84.0||-17.0||
Price isn't going to thrill anyone as a workhorse ace anymore, but he still posts plenty of Ks to go with useful ratios each and every season. With Boston's lineup behind him, we can expect plenty of wins as well, making him one of the most appealing third-tier starting pitchers this year.
|25||German Marquez (COL - SP)||102||11||68||26.4||9.4||82.0||-20.0||
Marquez had a terrific strikeout-to-walk ratio last season, but still finished with an ERA of 3.77, which feels like a best-case scenario for a pitcher who calls Coors Field home. Marquez should provide plenty of innings and strikeouts and his fair share of wins, but he's not likely to be of much help when it comes to ERA and WHIP.
|26||Miles Mikolas (STL - SP)||106||14||64||27.7||5.6||98.0||-8.0||
Mikolas had an incredible season in his first year back from pitching in Japan, posting a 2.83 ERA and 1.07 WHIP while winning 18 games for the Cardinals. His weak strikeout rate is a bit of a detriment in roto leagues with low innings caps, but it isn't too big a deal in points leagues. That said, he's due for a bit of a correction in his BABIP and HRs allowed, which should cause his ERA to rise at least into the mid-3.00s. He can still be a useful fantasy pitcher in most formats, but could be overvalued.
|27||Charlie Morton (TB - SP)||109||17||61||28.9||6.3||114.0||+5.0||
After nearly a decade of mediocrity, the Astros turned Morton into a high-end starter in 2017, and he was even better in 2018. At this point, he feels relatively safe to pencil in for a mid-3.00s ERA, 10.0 K/9 rate, and WHIP in the 1.15-1.20 range. The concerns are his advancing age and durability -- he's never thrown more than 172 innings in a season. The move to Tampa Bay is also a mild concern, less so for the change of division than for the move away from a Houston team that seemingly knew how to get the best out of him.
|28||Masahiro Tanaka (NYY - SP)||113||19||42||29.3||4.0||120.0||+7.0||
Tanaka was basically the same pitcher last year as he was in 2017, but he shaved a run off of his ERA thanks to slight improvements in BABIP allowed, home runs allowed, and left-on-base percentage. Still, home runs remain an issue for Tanaka, which explains why his ERA generally lags behind his WHIP. He's also never made it to 200 innings, so he's not exactly a workhorse. At this point we should just accept Tanaka for what he is: a solid third or fourth fantasy starter.
|29||Madison Bumgarner (SP) FA||117||17||49||30.5||5.5||96.0||-21.0||
Bumgarner was one of the best fantasy starters out there until a couple of years ago, but he hasn't been quite the same since his 2017 dirt bike accident. He has remained a help in ERA thanks to his ability to limit base hits, but his strikeout rate has plummeted and last year his walk rate rose as well. Bumgarner's peripherals suggest he is playing with fire, even in a very pitcher-friendly environment in San Francisco. Still just 29 years old, a big bounce back season cannot be completely discounted, but there is no question that Bumgarner is a risk-reward choice on draft day.
|30||Robbie Ray (ARI - SP)||118||23||82||31.8||6.5||116.0||-2.0||
Ray took a big step backward last year in the ratios but still racked up 165 Ks in just over 120 innings pitcher. There is still upside for an ace pitcher here and the floor may be about what we got last year which didn't kill anyone's championship hopes. He makes for a quality mid-round pick.
|31||Luis Castillo (CIN - SP)||120||20||56||32.1||6.3||128.0||+8.0||
Castillo quickly became a darling of the analytics community last season but failed to meet the expectations of those who reached for him in fantasy. He is still plenty young and talented, however, so don't give up on him less the breakout comes a year later than everyone planned for.
|32||Kyle Hendricks (CHC - SP)||125||14||73||33.5||7.4||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.
|33||Chris Archer (PIT - SP)||123||13||63||33.6||8.1||124.0||+1.0||
Archer has proven to be a pitcher who consistently posts a higher ERA than his advanced metrics suggest he deserves. At this point, we should no longer be expecting that to suddenly change. Until we see otherwise, expect Archer to post an ERA around 4.00, a WHIP in the 1.20s, and a fairly strong strikeout rate.
|34||Yu Darvish (CHC - SP)||128||8||67||34.9||7.9||143.0||+15.0||
Darvish missed most of the 2018 season due to elbow and triceps injuries, and he was clearly not himself for the 40 innings he was able to pitch. Health has been a constant concern for Darvish, but he's been a consistently dominant strikeout pitcher, and last year was the first time in his Major League career that he's had an ERA over 3.90 or WHIP above 1.28. His team context in Chicago remains great, so the chance of a big bounce back season is there if he can just stay off of the DL.
|35||Shane Bieber (CLE - SP)||133||20||148||37.5||11.3||149.0||+16.0||
Bieber is the rare pitcher who may throw too many strikes. His pinpoint control is helpful for his WHIP, and he's shown the ability to strike out close to a batter per inning, but he gave up so many hits as a rookie that his ERA ballooned to 4.55. That is due for quite a bit of positive regression, but Bieber's ERA may always trail behind his WHIP. For now, expect his ERA to settle in the mid-to-high 3s.
|36||J.A. Happ (NYY - SP)||140||24||84||40.0||8.2||131.0||-9.0||
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.
|37||Nick Pivetta (PHI - SP,RP)||141||25||156||40.4||11.5||151.0||+10.0||
Pivetta's peripherals say that his ERA should have been much better than 4.77 last year, but he was victimized by a high BABIP, low strand rate, and lots and lots of home runs. This is an elite bat misser who has thrown fewer than 300 innings at the Major League level, so there is some breakout potential here. We'll learn this season whether Pivetta is ready to take a step forward or if he's the next in a line of pitchers who don't quite live up to their peripherals.
|38||Eduardo Rodriguez (BOS - SP)||138||21||87||40.5||9.5||150.0||+12.0||
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.
|39||Rich Hill (SP) FA||142||16||67||40.6||9.4||174.0||+32.0||
It's a bit surprising how much the ECR favors Hill over Kenta Maeda, Hyun-Jin Ryu, and Ross Stripling. All are superb options when healthy, but none should be trusted to work any more than 135 innings. So why such a heavy preference for Hill? The unlikely reclamation project turns 39 before starting the season, and he wasn't as elite (3.66 ERA, 3.97 FIP, 3.57 SIERA) in 2018's 132.2 innings. Drafters must exude patience, as he has struggled out of the gate in each of the last two seasons. In what should come as a surprise to nobody, he's already dealing with a short-term MCL injury that will delay his scheduled Opening Day start. He's a strong SP2 or 3 in the starts he makes, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him run out of steam. Just don't drop him much for this injury; such issues were already expected and factored into his draft cost.
|40||Mike Foltynewicz (ATL - SP)||149||15||87||42.3||10.5||112.0||-37.0||
A relative afterthought in many 2018 drafts, Foltynewicz fastened a 2.85 ERA and 202 strikeouts in 183 frames. Deploying fewer sinkers and more sliders helped unlock his upside, but beware paying full freight for an encore. A substandard 3.34 BB/9 could cause more trouble if a .253 BABIP rises near his .303 career norm. This was a case of not paying for the career year before elbow soreness threatened his wipe out multiple April starts.
|41||Cole Hamels (SP) FA||147||27||74||42.6||8.7||146.0||-1.0||
Hamels displayed all the signs of a pitcher in decline during his three seasons in Texas, but he rebounded nicely upon joining the Cubs at midseason last year. It's hard to know exactly what version of Hamels we'll get at this point, but being in the National League should help. It's not unreasonable to hope for a sub-4.00 ERA, a WHIP in the low 1.20s, and close to a strikeout per inning in 2019.
|42||Kenta Maeda (LAD - SP,RP)||152||26||74||46.8||8.3||175.0||+23.0||
Over his first three seasons with the Dodgers, Maeda has finished as the SP19, SP33, and SP49 in standard 5x5 rotisserie leagues, despite averaging just 145 innings pitched per season. He is a good bet to again produce an ERA around 3.80, WHIP around 1.20, and better than a strikeout per inning. While it would be unwise to expect more than around 130 innings from Maeda this season, given how the Dodgers have handled Maeda and the rest of their pitching staff over the last couple years, he's proven he can be a solid mixed league asset even with a limited workload. He's particularly valuable in shallower leagues (10/12 team leagues with short benches) and leagues with multiple DL spots, since there will be decent fill-ins available for the starts he misses in those formats.
|43||Nathan Eovaldi (BOS - SP,RP)||165||29||104||47.8||10.1||159.0||-6.0||
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.
|44||Jose Quintana (CHC - SP)||160||23||102||48.9||9.4||165.0||+5.0|
|45||Rick Porcello (SP) FA||161||29||99||49.4||11.6||148.0||-13.0|
|46||Yusei Kikuchi (SEA - SP)||168||25||120||50.9||10.0||163.0||-5.0||
Signed by Seattle this winter, Kikuchi heads to the U.S. with a career 2.77 ERA in eight seasons in Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball. The Japanese signee is expected to make his MLB debut in the Tokyo Dome, giving some last-minute drafters a sneak peek that could vastly sway his cost. Since Kikuchi is accustomed to working in a six-man rotation, Seattle plans to limit him to around five innings per start, which jeopardizes his win potential but could help fortify his ratios. He's a bit of an unknown without a sky-high ceiling, but the 27-year-old southpaw could make a solid mid-rotation piece if competitors get scared off by his uncertainty.
|47||Tyler Glasnow (TB - SP)||177||14||139||51.3||20.1||162.0||-15.0||
A former elite prospect, Glasnow couldn't quite get his act together in Pittsburgh, but things started looking up when he was moved to the Rays. He struggled mightily with the long ball during his brief stint in Tampa, but the much more important thing is that he nearly cut his walk rate in half. Glasnow can miss bats with the best of them, so if he can stop giving away so many free passes we could suddenly be looking at a pitcher who can provide solid ratios to go along with the elite strikeout numbers. He's an exciting breakout candidate.
|48||Hyun-Jin Ryu (SP) FA||176||32||107||52.2||10.6||181.0||+5.0||
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.
|49||Ross Stripling (LAD - SP,RP)||199||31||147||54.6||15.0||192.0||-7.0||
Let's not forget how awesome Stripling was to start the season. He posted a 2.39 ERA with an MLB-high 11.38 BB/K ratio before the All-Star break. Despite finishing with a 3.02 ERA, he underperformed a .266 xwOBA that finished ninth among all starters. A potential top-25 starter if provided a secure job, he's instead a dicey top-50 choice with the Dodgers likely to give Kenta Maeda the fifth spot after Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Rich Hill, and Hyun-Jin Ryu. He'll earn some starts eventually, potentially to start the season if Kershaw (shoulder inflammation) and/or Buehler (arm) aren't ready, but Stripling may not significantly exceed last year's 122 innings. The skills make him worth a plunge at the right spot, especially with injuries already beginning to pile up for the NL champs.
|50||Jon Gray (COL - SP)||183||18||82||54.6||11.1||190.0||+7.0||
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.
|51||Joey Lucchesi (SD - SP)||180||26||107||55.1||13.4||196.0||+16.0|
|52||Jake Arrieta (PHI - SP)||173||28||82||55.9||9.8||191.0||+18.0|
|53||Joe Musgrove (PIT - SP)||192||33||102||57.0||13.9||208.0||+16.0||
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.
|54||Andrew Heaney (LAA - SP)||201||33||100||57.3||13.8||189.0||-12.0||
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.
|55||Collin McHugh (SP,RP) FA||208||25||95||57.9||15.7||210.0||+2.0||
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.
|56||Tyler Skaggs (SP) RET||194||33||106||59.6||11.0||217.0||+23.0||
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.
|57||Jon Lester (CHC - SP)||198||30||96||60.0||13.1||161.0||-37.0||
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.
|58||Kyle Freeland (COL - SP)||207||30||106||60.6||15.6||158.0||-49.0|
|59||Alex Wood (SP) FA||212||35||100||62.0||11.9||230.0||+18.0||
Wood will open 2019 on the IL with a back injury, but don't forget about him. Even before getting hurt, he was overlooked in drafts despite carrying a career 3.29 ERA and 3.36 FIP and gaining job security with a move from the Dodgers to the Reds. The park change and diminished velocity have caused valid concerns, but the 28-year-old righty should remain a solid No. 4 or 5 starter when healthy.
|60||Chris Paddack (SD - SP)||191||29||91||54.6||13.8||227.0||+36.0||
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.
|61||Dallas Keuchel (SP) FA||216||34||121||61.9||19.5||183.0||-33.0||
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.
|62||Kevin Gausman (CIN - SP,RP)||228||43||99||68.1||13.5||209.0||-19.0||
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.
|63||Zack Godley (SP) FA||221||39||110||68.5||14.1||246.0||+25.0|
|64||Steven Matz (NYM - SP)||222||43||107||68.5||12.0||258.0||+36.0|
|65||Sean Newcomb (ATL - SP,RP)||235||31||123||71.6||16.0||213.0||-22.0|
|66||Marco Gonzales (SEA - SP)||240||29||113||71.6||14.5||229.0||-11.0|
|67||Kyle Gibson (SP) FA||260||44||105||74.7||13.4||293.0||+33.0|
|68||Carlos Martinez (STL - SP,RP)||239||26||166||73.0||23.5||194.0||-45.0||
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.
|69||Sonny Gray (CIN - SP)||256||51||132||76.2||14.1||268.0||+12.0|
|70||Jimmy Nelson (MIL - SP)||253||32||148||74.6||17.8||371.0||+118.0|
|71||Josh James (HOU - SP,RP)||262||52||112||77.5||14.0||222.0||-40.0||
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.
|72||Matt Strahm (SD - SP,RP)||248||42||120||72.1||19.7||262.0||+14.0||
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.
|73||Luke Weaver (ARI - SP)||258||41||291||80.3||31.3||310.0||+52.0|
|74||Julio Urias (LAD - SP,RP)||280||25||133||79.4||20.9||266.0||-14.0|
|75||Anibal Sanchez (WSH - SP)||289||45||155||85.1||20.8||294.0||+5.0|
|76||Carlos Rodon (CWS - SP)||288||47||117||81.4||15.3||279.0||-9.0|
|77||Freddy Peralta (MIL - SP,RP)||304||42||151||85.2||18.7||301.0||-3.0||
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.
|78||Michael Pineda (SP) FA||295||43||153||86.0||19.4||329.0||+34.0|
|79||Jhoulys Chacin (SP) FA||309||39||138||88.5||17.6||237.0||-72.0|
|80||Marcus Stroman (NYM - SP)||318||56||131||87.0||14.7||277.0||-41.0|
|81||Brad Peacock (HOU - SP)||268||30||125||72.3||20.8||247.0||-21.0||
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.
|82||Mike Minor (TEX - SP)||320||37||154||92.3||19.8||320.0||‐|
|83||Matthew Boyd (DET - SP)||303||40||152||89.0||22.9||299.0||-4.0|
|84||Michael Wacha (SP) FA||310||53||115||85.8||14.6||271.0||-39.0|
|85||Dylan Bundy (BAL - SP)||291||50||130||87.8||13.3||280.0||-11.0|
|86||Jakob Junis (KC - SP)||333||47||167||92.6||21.3||319.0||-14.0|
|87||Brandon Woodruff (MIL - SP,RP)||290||48||131||82.8||21.2||276.0||-14.0|
|88||Julio Teheran (SP) FA||328||35||133||92.4||15.1||238.0||-90.0|
|89||Vince Velasquez (PHI - SP,RP)||324||60||125||93.7||14.8||386.0||+62.0|
|90||Reynaldo Lopez (CWS - SP)||314||57||150||90.5||17.4||284.0||-30.0|
|91||Trevor Richards (TB - SP)||331||57||134||93.0||15.8||357.0||+26.0||
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.
|92||Forrest Whitley (HOU - SP) MiLB||342||51||167||96.5||20.8||273.0||-69.0||
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.
|93||Jeff Samardzija (SF - SP)||340||53||194||98.9||21.6||453.0||+113.0|
|94||Dereck Rodriguez (SF - SP)||361||62||128||101.0||12.8||295.0||-66.0|
|95||Shohei Ohtani (LAA - DH,SP)||211||25||123||61.5||21.4||171.0||-40.0||
It is too bad that we don't get to see Ohtani pitch this season since he was so dominant, but his bat is very nearly on the same level. His full season pace last year had him at 34 homers, 16 steals, 95 RBIs, 92 runs and a .285 BA. That is a second round level season. Granted, he likely won't debut until May since he is recovering from an injury, but remember that he was only 23 last year and will finally get to focus on just hitting for the first time in his life.
|96||Tanner Roark (SP) FA||370||37||135||103.4||15.9||346.0||-24.0|
|97||Zach Eflin (PHI - SP)||369||56||182||100.5||21.5||304.0||-65.0|

|99||Trevor Williams (PIT - SP)||341||47||163||102.4||21.2||292.0||-49.0|
|100||Danny Duffy (KC - SP)||348||61||150||104.0||18.6||458.0||+110.0|
|101||Jake Odorizzi (MIN - SP)||374||56||136||108.2||15.7||448.0||+74.0|
|102||Derek Holland (SP,RP) FA||353||52||171||104.3||25.7||388.0||+35.0|
|103||Mike Soroka (ATL - SP)||354||59||204||105.5||23.2||416.0||+62.0||
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.
|104||Anthony DeSclafani (CIN - SP)||385||75||156||108.8||16.8||445.0||+60.0|

|115||Brad Keller (KC - SP)||411||73||181||112.9||18.4||361.0||-50.0|
|116||Brent Honeywell Jr. (TB - SP)||471||85||191||124.2||19.5||558.0||+87.0||
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.
