Top 100 SP for a 60-Game Season

Here they are!

I’ll have a whole column of notes on different guys on Monday. I just wanted to get the ranks out and we can start discussing them in the comments. This 60-game season is going to be so wild!

 

Previous list for comparison, though comparing a full season list to a 60-game one is tough.

Great list! A couple questions:

1) Projections systems are generally pretty down on Civale, and he had a rough SIERA/xFIP last year, despite posting good numbers. Any reason why you have ranked him substantially higher than the projection systems?

2) I notice Brendan McKay’s not on the list — is this mostly because of the playing time risk, or do you just not see him performing well this year?
