2024 In-Season Starting Pitcher Rankings – July

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

As we approach the All-Star break, we’re due for another big update on the SP rankings. Sorry for not getting one out in June, but you can see my Daily SP Charts for regular commentary on pitchers so at least it’s not completely dark in between these updates. The $ is the earned auction value so far this year. Those with – in their Change column means they weren’t ranked last month due to injury or simply not being in the MLB rotation.

I’ll be in the comments answering any questions, so let me know! Plus, I’ll have my chat on Wednesday where we can discuss in more detail.

Don’t forget that these are primarily focused on the next 3-4 weeks. They can give you some guidance on “rest of season” trades, but I’m not taking IP risk into heavy consideration with these rankings because most of those guys facing a limit won’t be altered much in July. Moves due to volume concerns will start more in the post-Trade Deadline update.

(Note: there won’t be a Tuesday SP Chart, but these rankings should definitely help your decisions for the day!)

Alright, enough yapping… here they are:

Update(s):

  • July 1st, 10:00 pm CT — I memory-holed the big injuries from last wk apparently, so I had to remove several guys who got hurt (Lodolo, Woo, Turnbull, Assad, Mize; plus Megill getting sent to AAA) and from there I ended up doing a decently large sweep so there was a good bit of movement from the original post. No one shifted multiple tiers or anything, but some real moves for sure.

Thanks so much for all of the work you put into this! Your daily charts and intermittent rankings are my first stop for fantasy SP eval — truly incredible resources, and I know I speak for many in saying how grateful I am that you put so much time and care into these updates.

If the Mets commit to keeping Christian Scott in the rotation after his call-up for tomorrow’s start, would that change his placement in your rankings (or maybe it’s already baked in)?
