Paul Sporer’s Updated SP Rankings

The blue bar represents the START of a new tier.

I generally don’t include IL’d guys. It’s especially precarious this late when guys could just be shutdown if they are on bad teams.

I view these as 2-3 week rankings given the volatility of pitching so I will include at least 1 and probably 2 more updates on the site before season’s end, but I am updating them regularly on our Patreon.

FYI: instead of updating the rankings in September, I started the Daily SP Chart.

Castillo, Manoah, and Fried all more than 10 spots ahead of Darvish?? I don’t understand. If heavily weighting recent performance then Logan Webb is much higher than 39.
