Top 100 Pitching Prospects

Top 100 Pitching Prospects

We had some requests to divide our lists into hitters and pitchers, so I decided to create a one-time in-season post showing the Top 100 pitching prospects. The list excludes major leaguers. An arrow posted next to a player’s name means the ranking is perhaps slightly above or below market value. For example, the “↓” next to Teheran’s name means—if you are using this list for a mid-season fantasy draft—it is worth double-check whether this ranking is too high. Hope y’all enjoy. This was an easy post to create because it simply involved cutting and pasting, but looking at the list in different ways is a good way to improve our rankings, so if you see places we can make the rankings better, post in the comment board.
