Top 75 starting pitchers for 2020 fantasy baseball

The best arms in baseball! I go 75 deep!

MLB: Spring Training-Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Dodgers Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Let's go deep at arguably the most important position in fantasy baseball. Starting pitchers can often make or break your fantasy season. And in a likely shortened year, the volatility will be even greater.

The good news, presumably, is that innings limits won't be an obstacle for younger pitchers in 2020. This gives a nice boost for arms like Jesus Luzardo and Julio Urias.

With less games likely for 2020, this should make the league more competitive overall. This will bode well for prospects getting called up to make an immediate impact. Draft names like Spencer Howard and Mackenzie Gore with more certainty they will help this season.

Here are my top 75 starting pitchers.
