Chad Young’s Ottoneu SP Ranks

The good news is, I am making sure that all of my rankings are up in time for cut deadline day! The bad news is that, in order to meet this deadline, I had to sacrifice my notes column for the pitcher rankings. If it helps, you can imagine that I wrote something witty, insightful or in rare cases both, as you look at each row below.

A few notes that would have been in the notes column:

  • Yes, I know you think Walker Buehler should be higher. Look at that projected P/IP though! I already moved him way up from where he projects.
  • If you promised me Jacob deGrom would get 150 innings, he would be over Gerrit Cole, easily.
  • I am very interested to see where Danny Duffy signs and how he looks in Spring Training or Summer Camp or Fall Practice or whatever we get this year.
  • Ohtani is probably about a $15-$20 SP, maybe less depending on innings – his bat drives the majority of his value.
  • I feel like we should call Baz and McClanahan the Shanes, right?
  • No Trevor Bauer is not on here. There are two reasons for this: 1) I still think there is a good chance MLB comes down hard on him and so it is very hard to pin down his theoretical on-field value. 2) I am not drafting him. I am not here to judge anyone who does – you adding him to your fantasy team does not impact anything, nor does my leaving him off my fantasy team. That said, I have no desire to see him succeed and even less desire to benefit from that success. I don’t want to find myself hoping he pitches or that he pitches well or anything like that. So I am not drafting him, so he is not on this list. If you would like to know where he would be if I were somehow forced to add him – he would be right after Caleb Kilian.

Thanks for getting this in before the keeper deadline.

What’s going on with Julio Urias’ projection? He’s projected for much worse p/ip than everyone else around him, including guys like Bassitt and Cobb. 4.04 would be almost 1.4 less than last year for him. I realize there’s a good chance for HR regression for him, but that seems like a lot.
