2020 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Top 75 Starting Pitchers (Updated)

Refreshing the pitcher rankings.

Yours truly is at the beach this week. Don’t worry, I’m social distancing with the best of them. Having seven-year-olds who wake up at the crack of dawn is great for getting to the sand before anyone else even wakes up...

That said, we left some room today to make a fresh pass at our pitcher rankings. It’s still not complete and may require another, but there are some new names that have jumped into the top 75. I regret that names like Miles Mikolas, A.J. Puk, Spencer Howard, Nate Pearson, and Spencer Turnbull didn’t make the list. All were relatively close, for what it’s worth.

We’ll take any major dissension below. But play nice!

Lastly, rebounding from some initially depressed rankings (mostly due to injury or role concerns) are names like Carlos Martinez, Rich Hill, and James Paxton. Removed due to injuries or to COVID-19 concerns are Chris Sale, Noah Syndergaard, David Price, Chris Archer, Domingo German, Tyler Beede, Joe Ross, and Felix Hernandez.

Ranking this many guys is always a bear, be sure to let us know if we missed someone!
