2024 In-Season Starting Pitcher Rankings – May

We’re a month and a half into the season so it’s time for a big sweeping update on the SP rankings. See my Daily SP Charts for regular commentary on pitchers. The $ is the earned auction value so far this year.

There are 151 ranked because I left Cole Irvin even with Grayson Rodriguez returning this weekend just because I hadn’t see what they were going to do. I assume it’ll just be Irvin to the bullpen but I left him in the rankings for now removed him after I ran an update to get Scott into the rankings.

May 19th update – Added C.Scott, Removed C.Irvin, A.Houser | shifted some of the tier rankings

May 20th update – Earned Auction $ and ADP values updated for rookies who weren’t populating

Been waiting for this list, thanks Paul! I don’t see Christian scott, maybe I’m blind. Where do you have him? Thanks!
This list seriously helps me a ton with determining pick ups and potential trades. Thanks again!

Yes, was also going to ask about Scott, seeing that his inferior fellow-callup Gasser merited a mention.
