Mixed League Starting Pitcher Rankings

We’re splitting the outfielder and starting pitcher rankings into two leagues so that your positional correspondents can handle the workload. But you’re in a mixed league and drafting this week. So, for your use, we smashed the outfielder rankings together this week.

Now it’s time for the pitchers.

They are shared as a google document here, and pasted below. If you want more analysis or click-able links, try the NL pitchers here and the AL pitchers here. Good luck drafting!

I heard he’s having a rough spring, he must have missed the cut.
I thought taking him in the fifth round might have been a reach but it’s too late now.

The NL rankings have Hamels slotted between Kershaw and Jimenez. I’d value him about equal to Jered Weaver.
