Top 50 Starting Pitcher Prospects

Top 50 Starting Pitcher Prospects

Here are the top 50 starting pitcher prospects.  As a preliminary note, it’s worth mentioning several elite prospects (Sale, Schepppers, and Chapman) are on the relievers list.  We originally created a longer list but decided to list 50 names because a longer list gets overwhelming.  But the short list means there are some major snubs.
