Man, name a starting pitcher and there’s a 50% chance he’s hurt!

It’s been a brutal Spring – Tommy J’s, ACLs, dead arms, demotions, sports betting on Twitter…  It never ends!  It feels like we’re just another few injury-plagued Springs away from having pitching machines on the mound.  Would spell a devastating end to Krispie Young, that’s for sure!

So as we’ll update every Monday through the season, below is an update to my first edition of the Top 100 SP Ranks, which you can find through the magic of clickity-click.  Standard in-season-esque green for risers, red for fallers, additional notes at the end, and my principle is usually to not rank pitchers in the bullpen unless it’s highly anticipated they will join the rotation in the immediate future.  So Sayonara Cingrani!  Sounds like an episode title of The Sopranos…  Here’s my updated Top 100 SP:

Dropped Out: Yu Darvish (TJ), Marcus Stroman (ACL), Zack Wheeler (TJ), Tony Cingrani (bullpen), Cliff Lee (hoping to rehab that flexor, but camon), Danny Salavar (demoted), Carlos Martinez (likely heading to relief)

  • I know, I know, I know…  I’m going nutso for Harvey.  “JB’s an effing amateur, he things Spring Training stats mean something!”  Well, of course not.  But Harvey looks amaze-balls, the velo is fantastic, and he’s confident.  I caught on a broadcast that in his TJ procedure they took 3 tendons from his calf instead of the standard 2 to sew up his elbow.  Does that mean anything?  I don’t know, but with all that time off and maybe that giving him an extra iota of confidence, I’m moving him into ace-level top-10.
  • Man, I just have Mets fever!  Quick, get me a vial of David Wright‘s sweat!  I’m not overrating Spring stats, I just now what I saw in a few of Jake DeGrom’s Spring starts.  Looks fantastic.
  • I don’t like to draft any hurt pitchers, unless the upside is #1 or #2 starter.  Even a healthy Cobb I wasn’t huge on, and other injured pitchers get major downgrades from me as well.
  • Love what I see from Daniel Norris.  He would’ve been higher my original ranks had I known a rotation spot would be his; this is not entirely predicated on Spring numbers.
  • I guess some Red Sox have to make it now… Hah!
  • In Pts leagues, Graveman is way, way more interesting as a sleeper.  But in roto, dat low-K doe!
  • Really worried about what happens to Carlos Martinez.  With Jaime Garcia (shocker!  not in the ranks!) healthy – for who knows how long- looks like C-Mart might be bullpen-ized.  UPDATE – Garcia got hurt while I wrote this over the weekend… Doh!  C-Mart will likely go to 75-80 in the next update.
  • I know I said no relief guys usually make my ranks, but we don’t know yet with Gausman.  We can only cross our fingers and hope Buck makes the right move.

Thoughts on the re-ranks?  As always, shoot your thoughts below Razzball Nation!  And may your fantasy staffs be as robust as…  yeah let’s just leave it at that.

Hey JB, thanks again for all the help from above, we went back and forth so much there wasnt a reply button after your last response lol. One option I forgot to mention on the wire is Jennings who I could drop Jace Peterson for; To jog your memory I’ve included my team again:

@JB Gilpin: Well, someone beat me to Cron. Based on what I’d read from you and Grey’s columns concerning Wainwright I took a deal I was offered and flipped Wainwright and Jace for Odorrizzi and Danny Santana. Got a little speed and SS/OF eligibility in Santana and an up and comer projected to put up similar numbers to Wainwright. What says you about the deal and about my lineup as currently constructed?

@JB Gilpin: Yeah it was risky I suppose but overall I like my roster now. I think Santana is an upgrade over Jace in R’s and Likely SB’s… I’m obviously hoping Odorizzi delivers on his sleeper potential. We can only keep 4 players per year for a max of 3 years in this league so I’d have never kept Wainwright anyway. I appreciate all the feedback, hopefully McCarthey, Greene and a few other arms can take the next step and solidify my staff. And I do have Kluber who I can still keep 1 more year as a 23rd round pick no less…finished 2nd in this league last year. Hopefully I’ve got enough balance to make a run again…

JB–what the heck do I do in my 10 team AL-only roto dynasty league? It’s 6×6 (W, K, ERA, WHIP, Saves, Holds) and we need to have 9 pitchers.

I kept Hughes ($6) and Smyly ($6). Aces go for top dollar (i.e. Sale and Price were both kept at 36).

King Felix is available, but he’ll probably go for 30+. Samardzija is the next highest rated guy on your board, then next tier guys like McHugh, Pineda, Kazmir, Shoemaker, Keuchel, Greene, etc.

Would you recommend spending money to get starters of that quality? And if so, how much? Or should I just take a few flyers on upside starters and focus my money instead on relievers to try winning ERA, WHIP, Holds, etc?

I appreciate the help

@JB Gilpin it’s a H2H points league. And it’s actually 4 keepers per team. Obviously SP is key, so I’m debating taking a chance on Cobb and then drafting Carrasco or Arrieta with the 3rd round pick.

Looking to make some swaps in my H2H points league. I’m debating trading Jordan Zimmerman and my 6th round pick for his 1st and 3rd. I would like to grab Shields with the 1st and then grab some combo of Carrasco/Richards/DeGrom/Wood/Arrieta with the 3rd round. Is this worth the risk of trading Zimmerman?

@JB Gilpin Yes, we can use RP for starters that qualify there. But we also have a limit of 10 starts per week. I’m hoping Carrasco will be there in the 3rd, but I know for sure that some combo him, Richards, Wood, Arrieta, DeGrom, McHugh or Iwakuma will be there for sure.

So with that team do I have enough speed to drop say Burns(speculative add with Crisp on DL but still not guaranteed a starting spot) for McCarthy? Or should I hold tight with this staff, also available on the wire are Santana, House, J.Nelson, Pomeranz, maybe a stash of C.Rodon…based on our previous discussion of the concern regarding Wainright I want to make sure I have as good a staff as possible.

@JB Gilpin: Thanks JB. I dropped Burns for McCarthy already. My dilema with Jace is I dont really have a back up option at SS behind Alexi and he is 2nd and SS eligible. I also worry I dont have enough speed which led me to want to hold onto him…and I’m a Braves homer lol. So after adding McCarthy my team looks like this:

I could stand pat,add Vargas or Cron for power..do you like either of them for a power bat btw? Also as it stands now to me I question Greene the most on my staff. I know you like him, do you like him over Bradley or the addition of a power bat for this roster? Also thoughts on McAllister, hearing a lot of post draft hype for him too.

@Eric B: Also regarding Jace being expendable. If I’m concerned about speed(wanting to keep Jace) do you think Semien becomes the most expendable bat on this roster? If so it comes down to Greene vs Bradley on my staff? And Burns, Cron or Vargas vs Semien for my batters.

Congrats on the promotion new razzball podcast guy! Great work with these SP rankings, must be the easiest job in the world with all the good SPs coming out of our ears these days, or does that make it the hardest haha.

Love your high-ness on Sale and Paxton first time I’ve drafted Sale this year ($22) but I’ve always been a Paxton fan. Some interesting calls, Verlander and CC so high? Drafted Cobb but didn’t freakin know about his injury then (!), however it might have led to a bargain buy ($11), is his ranking here already adjusted for that? Liking the Yordano and Cole love too.

@JB Gilpin: norris was grabbed at around 8 AM by the TOR team (we have to keep at least 9 players from whatever team we are named after, i’m TEX), i’m thinking norris just came into yahoo recently, since i’m sure TOR would’ve grabbed him earlier otherwise. in this case i guess drop house for c.anderson. this is my 6th SP spot, so it would be the stream spot anyway. We drafted these teams last year and got to keep predraft as many of our team named players as we wanted. TEX at the time seemed VERY good at offense. here’s hoping kela makes bullpen and soon steals feliz’s job, as i dropped that bum last year before he came back with no velo from AAA.

so your rankings say i should drop porcello (for sure) and burnett for happ and d.norris? others around this area that are free are nelson/c.anderson/rubby. all the others from where you have d.norris to where you have burnett are gone.

Nice list JB! Good read as usual.

I’ve fallen off the Sonny bandwagon for this year. Fun while it lasted though. Gay marriage must be legal in your state, and you and Harvey had to have been first in line to make it official. I see no other reason Harvey would be at #9.

I have a big draft tonight and I haven’t seen many people in previous drafts take any interest in him. I just might take a stab based on the bedroom eyes you’re flashing towards Shea stadium.

I joke! Much respect for your ranks, I changed up my plans based on them so I hope you know your shit! Many of these picks will be easy. Good luck this year!

@JB Gilpin: Thanks for the reply! He’s definitely on my radar. I like his strong track record in the minors, especially the K and BB rates. He never really got hit particularly hard, even in Las Vegas. So while his 2014 MLB numbers were pretty meh overall, I think he can be a solid mid-rotation guy. But I suppose he actually needs to lock that down first.

Hey JB, these lists are awesome, love getting your perspective in addition to the other writers. Can I get your thoughts on my points league staff? League is 10 teams with 5 SP slots and 2 RP slots. And it’s weekly.

SP: Max Scherzer, James Shields, Garrett Richards, Yordano Ventura, Collin McHugh

RP: Alex Wood, Kenley Jansen

Bench: Matt Shoemker, Carlos Martinez, Kendall Graveman

I’m not really sure how to handle the RP slot — I think Wood will score more points than every closer, but I couldn’t decide whether Kenley will do better or a more fringe-y SP/RP like CMart or Graveman. So I have them both for now. Also not sure how to make room for the (at least) one two start guy I want to stream each week…

Also was offered Jordan Zimmerman, Bautista and a 10th round pick for Sale and my 3rd and 4th. I’m doing one deal or the other, not both.

Hey JB

Nice article. I’ll definitely be following the in-season re-rankings.

I went a little overboard on bats in the draft leaving me light on pitching. Which pitchers do you think I should target for someone like Adrian Gonzalez? I’ve been offered Jordan Zimmerman. Seem like a fair swap?

Thanks in advance!

@SDB:

This is who I’ve got at SP btw:

M.Tanaka
G.Richards
M.Wacha
T.Walker
M.Shoemaker
M.Fiers
K.Lohse

Should I trade for a SP?
Adrian Gonzalez is in my utility spot; if I trade him, he would be replaced in my starting lineup by subbing in and out Pedro Alvarez and Alex Rodriguez from my bench.

The pitcher I’ve got my eye on right now is Wojo in Houston. He’s been phenomenal and he pitches tomorrow. If he gets a spot, he may be a sneaky pickup.

Just finished my draft and here is my pitching staff in a H2H points league and below that the pitchers that are available on the wire. Although we have two spots for RP I skipped RP in the draft and filled the spots with RP eligible SP.

Current Team: Arrietta, Gray, Carrasco, Shoemaker, Kennedy, McHugh, Keuchel, Pineda
Waiver Wire: Clippard, Reed, Lohse, Paxton, Miller, Porcello, Dickey, Greene

See any moves I should make immediately to improve this staff?

Thanks!

@TarmanGotHim: I traded Dee Gordon last year at his highest point for a 3rd rounder this year (and a few starters last year (Latos, Lee and Kennedy) as I needed pitching help… turns out they didn’t help much). (He wouldn’t have been kept by me, as my keepers were stacked)

I’m not a Dee Gordon lover, but with your squad, I would keep him. He fills the SB need for your team, without just being a typical SAGNOF. I also like Wong in the role you have him.

If I was you I’d be more inclined to flip Cespedes. Hitting 6th in Detroit is OK for a 3rd OF, but if he starts hot, you could probably get a ton for him to an unsuspecting owner who doesn’t realize his name has more value than his stats. I would try to upgrade SS as XB isn’t very good at all, IMO. The team is stacked though. You might not need to make any moves.

@JB Gilpin: I couldn’t agree more JB!!

And thanks for your assessment fan!! I agree with you 100% the fact of the matter, aside from being a Marlins fan, is I always prepare with at least 75 mocks ore draft, haha, and I maybe mocked Gordon twice, but the strategy was moreso speed at that pick, same with Wong. I drafted Fiers and K Rod second to last and second, I was gonna take Pederson and Danny Santana, but I said, they will be available the next 2 picks. They went 5 and 8 picks later respectively. So at that point, it didn’t really bother me cause all I needed to fill was Second UTIL (Pollock) and Catcher (I am kind of risking Ramos at both C spots in my 2 drafted leagues, but my bigger money league draft is tomorrow and I have pick 5, so I am actually going to really wait and take Zunino or D’Arnaud, or actually go a bit earlier for the first time ever and take Gones or Santana which his eligibility always intrigues me.

Puljos healthy in that lineup was a great pick at 1B. I waited 45 seconds going Frazier or Puljos, Frazier or Puljos, the only reason I almost went Frazier is for Steals and eligibility.

Also, I like 1B and OF in UTIL spot it must eligibility, but Won’t was hard to pass up, and I do plan on trading him.

Dee looks fantastic in ST, so hopefully he’s the real deal, as I am a Fish Fan regardless lol.

I have AuShizz and Arenado as my keepers in a 12 team 5X5 H2H keeper league. Drafting 2nd and assuming Giancarlo will be first off the board– who do you grab next? King Felix, Sale, Carlos Gomez or Joey Bats? Leaning towards F-Her but that’s cuz I’m drunk and need help standing. Slainte!
Also bonus question–in separate keeper league, Rendon owner with no back-up 2B; drop Yasmany Tomas for newly anointed 2B starter Jace “Don’t Call Me Joc” Peterson, Alcantara, Gyorko or Odor?
Eternal gratitude..

I have the following rotation in a 5×5 HTH league:
Kluber
Wainwright
Cole
Ventura
Walker
Paxton
K.Gibson

I know the further down the list you go the harder it is to really separate guys. Based on my line up above, which adds would benefit my staff the most iyo? I recently picked up K.Gibson after his strong spring performance and I have an open roster spot as well, so my question is keep Gibson and add one of the following that are available: S.Greene, D.Norris, D.Pomeranz, C-Mart, House and/or Nelson. Or drop Gibson and add 2 from that list? Obviously you have Greene and Norris ranked the highest, if this is your staff do you drop Gibson and add them both? I want to believe you on Greene but I’d be lying if I said I would have thought he’d be rated that high.

Last question,If you had to round out your roster how do you rank these 4 bottom of the roster bats… Vargas, Morse, Cron, D.Jennings?

@JB Gilpin:
Thanks for the reply JB! I definitely like Norris and I might go nuts along with you and add Greene. Maybe I was too high on Gibson, liked him, Pomeranz and Rodon a lot. But I think I could benefit from help now based on my staffs construction. Say I add greene and Norris decent staff or no? I know from above you’re not big on Wainwright. I also have Chapman, Perkins, Britton and Cecil as my closers.

This is my O:
C McCann
1B Freeman
2B Kipnis(some speed)
3B C.Santana
SS A. Ramirez(some speed)
OF Stanton
OF Soler
OF Betts(some speed)
OF Springer(maybe some speed?)
Util Pollock(some speed)
Util Semien
Util Morse
Bench Jace Peterson(sneaky speed play?)
Bench D.Jennings(some speed)

So based on that lineup are you dropping Jennings for Cron, standing pat? Any other observations are welcomed. Thanks in advance!

JB:

What’s the word, big fella. Sorry I was MIA during hoops this season. Real work called. Something had to give…. Nice to see your posts on SP. Generally, I tend to wait on pitching and go value and high upside whenever possible. The formula typically works pretty well for me, but curious your take. Play in a deep 14 team, weekly H2H, redraft league. 6×6 (holds), We start 11 arms weekly– here is my staff and starters:

SP (6): MadBum, Mat Latos, Francisco Liriano, Taijuan Walker, Shelby Miller, Carlos Martinez
RP (5): Adam Ottavino, Aaron Barrett, Neil Walker, AJ Ramos, Evan Marshall
Bench: Kevin Gausman, Danny Salazar (NA), Noah Syndergaard (NA), Sean Doolittle (DL)

Given the depth of the league and my staff above, I’m tempted to hold Danny Salazar for the “upside” assuming he can pitch his way back into rotation in first couple months. However, the following FA arms are available, some of which you seem bullish on –>

Available:: Chase Anderson, Jimmy Nelson, Mike Minor.

You like any of these guys more than Danny Salazar? Chase – solidified his spot today. Nelson – seems likely to do so as well. Minor – injured, had minor arm inflammation but no surgery needed; due back late April.

appreciate the thoughts.

Yeah; I hear ya. Fantasy Hoops needs to be modified or maybe shortening of the season (in reality) could help. THe amount of random DNPs, starter sit on away games, etc is almost too much to bear. Ruining the faux sport altogether… onwards to baseball.

I owned Nelson all last year, dug the minor league #s, the stuff, results were meh in his cup of coffee… so curious what you’ve seen in Spring Training that makes you bullish on him or is simply that Danny just seems to be a wild mess and needs more seasoning? Per his ST stats, he’s thrown 13 ip to the tune of a 6.23 ERA with 9 ks,/ 1 BB.

thanks.

10 h2h: R, H, RBI, SB, HR, AVG, OBP, SLG, IP, K’s, ERA, WHIP, QS, S

C: Santana
1b: Pujols

SP: Harvey, Lester, Tanaka, Carrasco, Ventura, Hutchison, Peralta, Eovaldi, Bauer, Heaney

Not super thrilled with having both Gordon and Hamilton, but I reached a little for Gordon and then Hamilton fell to me. I also think my SP is kinda weak.

But what do you think?

Since I’m feeling so so about odor would you add any of these ? Neil Walker, howie Kendrick , Brett lawrie (2b/3b), scooter genett, michah johnson, marcus semien (2b/3b), Luis valbuena (2b/3b), brandon Philips, Jedd gyorko.

P- Jacob deGrom

P- mat latos

P- taijuan Walker

Bench- iwakuma

There’s a total 6 bench slots but they are shared between bats & pitchers. However I do have two open slots so I wouldn’t have to drop anyone.

On the plus side we have 2 DL’s too.

Available P’s:

Matt shoemaker, yovani gallorado, Kendall graveman, john lackey, Vance Worley, dallas keuchel, tanner Roark, Wade miley, drew hutchinson, Brett cecil, Edward mujica.

Thanks man

@JB Gilpin:

We just have 6 pitcher slots so it’s up to the owner how he wants to set up, if he wants to go all in on 6 starting pitchers in the slots or if the owner wants to go with a RP in one of the pitcher slots that’s fine too/ up to the owner. Last season we started 3 SP & 2 RP but everyone used RP who are eligible as SP at the RP (only one team actually had closers, everyone else rolled with RP/SP last season) so this season we just got rid of the SP /RP tags & add one more P slot & call it a day.

Set up is head 2 head points league.

Seeing 5 of my 7 starts in the Top 25 makes me feel all warm inside about my pitching. Though interesting to see how highly Shane Greene is rated. Half tempted to dump Trevor Bauer for him.

Also, JB and crew. I drafted pretty well thanks to you guys, but I’m in a bind with 3 of my bench probably being demoted. Baez got demoted, Gyorko has looked okay and Yasmani & Souza might get demoted soon. Out of all of my bench only Marcus Semien looking like a great pick, yet he might be replacing Bogaerts if he underperforms.

Should I consider swapping out the ones who do get demoted? While I’d love to keep the guys who are demoted for potential, I also want to go from 6th last year to win this year. Kennys Vargas (only mentioning him cause I got Chris Davis and no back up for him), Scooter Gennett, Jonathan Schoop, Ryan Rua, Dalton Pompey, Alejandro De Aza, Michael Saunders are all on the FA for me to consider and they’ll all be up in the big leagues to start with.

Thanks as always and in advance.

@JB Gilpin:
Yeah, pretty much all my upside bench is likely to get demoted. Thankfully, I’ve drafted well enough it isn’t going to kill me, but it isn’t making life easy trying to fill it entirely out.

Think I’ll get right on Shane Greene. I’m kind of leaning towards going Vargas, Gennett, Rua (if Tomas goes down), and Schoop (DL replacement for Rendon). Seems like the best bet.
