Top 200 Pitchers Dynasty Fantasy Baseball Rankings For 2024 — College Baseball, MLB Draft, Prospects - Baseball America (2024)

In our final positional ranking of the offseason, we release our Top 200 pitchers for dynasty baseball.

Diligent Baseball America readers will see this is the first time the top of our positional rankings don’t exactly mirror the Dynasty Top 50 released earlier this offseason. In particular, we moved up two Dodgers acquisitions in Yoshinobu Yamamoto and Tyler Glasnow. While each hurler was expected to return value regardless of their 2024 organization, their addition to the Dodgers rotation raised their win floor for this season and beyond, which we reflected in our rankings.

Perhaps even more unusual: our No. 1 pitcher in these rankings will not pitch in 2024. This is a product of Shohei Ohtani’s unique value proposition. Even with the two-way superstar only hitting this season, it’s reasonable to expect him to out-earn most pitchers on the strength of his hitting alone. We’ve attempted to cover the designated hitter blindspot in our positional rankings by working Ohtani, Kyle Schwarber and others into our positional rankings. Ohtani is also unique because when fully healthy, his impact in daily leagues is unmatched. He’s truly a 1-of-1 chess piece, the likes of which we’ve never seen before.

This ranking was the work of the entire team at Baseball America but was curated by Dylan White and Geoff Pontes. Overall, these rankings look to balance 5×5 and points league scoring giving some slight preference to starters that go deeper into games, returning higher potential for quality starts and a greater ability to rack up counting stat totals.

1.Shohei Ohtani, RHP, Dodgers

When healthy, Ohtani is arguably the top player in any daily roster format because he can be toggled between hitter and pitcher. Regardless of what pitcher Ohtani provides in 2024, Ohtani the hitter slugged 44 home runs, stole 20 bases and hit .304/.412/.654 in 135 games.

2.Spencer Strider, RHP, Braves

Pitchers are risky choices in dynasty, but Strider is the best of the bunch. While his ERA of 3.85 in 2023 was heavily driven by luck, he’s viewed much more favorably by estimators like xFIP and FIP. Strider’s league-leading 281 strikeouts were the most by a starter since 2019.

3.Gerrit Cole, RHP, Yankees

Fresh off his first Cy Young Award, Cole is still an elite pitcher at age 33. The strikeouts were down in 2023 but the production was excellent and he’s a plug-and-play 200-inning starter. He may have three to four (or more) years left of elite production.

4.Eury Perez, RHP, Marlins

Perez debuted on May 12 a little less than a month after his 20th birthday, He made 19 starts for the Marlins producing a 3.15 ERA and a 28.9% strikeout rate. Perez shows a good combination of stuff, command and poise at such a young age that should provide a decade plus of production.

5.Corbin Burnes, RHP, Brewers

2023 was a down year for Burnes. He ranked 20th among pitchers as his strikeout rate dropped, walk rate rose and his ERA jumped nearly half a run. Despite the down season, Burnes still possesses an elite pitch in his cut fastball with a deep arsenal of average or better secondaries. Burnes could bounce back in 2024 at age 29 with plenty of good years remaining.

6.George Kirby, RHP, Mariners

The 25-year-old Kirby may have the best command of any pitcher in baseball. He showed the ability to handle a heavy workload, throwing more than 190 innings in 2023. Kirby has an excellent fastball and his slider and curveball took big steps forward last season. Kirby ranked 11th overall among starters for fantasy in 2023.

7. Yoshinobu Yamamoto, RHP, Dodgers

Yamamoto is coming to MLB after seven seasons with the Orix Buffaloes. At 25 years old, Yamamoto is a two-time NPB MVP and five-time All-Star. His fastball sits in the mid 90s and he mixes in a splitter, curveball and cutter, showing command for his entire arsenal.

8.Kevin Gausman, RHP, Blue Jays

Gausman threw 175+ innings with an ERA under 3.40 and notched over 200 strikeouts for the third consecutive year. He turns 33 years old before the 2024 season, but Gausman should still be counted on for top-10 starting pitcher production for 2024 and sub-4.00 ERAs through 2026.

9. Pablo Lopez, RHP, Twins

Lopez posted a career-high 194 innings and 4.5 fWAR at age 27after the Twins acquired himfrom the Marlins for Luis Arraez. All of Lopez’s ERA estimators (xERA, FIP, xFIP, SIERA) were even lower than his 3.66 ERA. As long as he’s healthy, Lopez should have a low ERA, low WHIP and 9+ K/9 for the next three years. A model of consistency, he has never had an ERA, xFIP, FIP, SIERA, or xERA above 4.00 in the 2020s.

10.Grayson Rodriguez, RHP, Orioles

While his debut wasn’t what Orioles fans hoped, Gray-Rod returned in July with a vengeance after a reclamation at Triple-A and pitched to a 2.58 ERA with a 24% strikeout rate in 13 starts.

11.Luis Castillo, RHP, Mariners

The Mariners ace put together another standout season finishing as the sixth-best pitcher in fantasy in 2023. Castillo has transformed from a groundball-heavy fireballer to one of the best strikeout pitchers in the game. At age 31, Castillo still has several more seasons of top-10 fantasy starter production remaining.

12. Tarik Skubal, LHP, Tigers

When Skubal returned from flexor tendon surgery in July, he gained nearly two mph on his fastball and subsequently finished the season with a 0.90 WHIP, 2.80 ERA and was arguably one of the best pitchers in the second half of 2023. Heading into his age-27 season and calling the most home run-suppressing stadium in Comerica Park home, projection systems generally expect him to be a top-five pitcher in 2024 and for the next three years.

13. Tyler Glasnow, RHP, Dodgers

A career 3.89 ERA and 1.21 WHIP pitcher, Glasnow will call Dodger Stadium home for the next four years after the Dodgers acquired him from the Rays and signed him to a new four-year, $110 million extension. He missed all of 2022 due to Tommy John surgery and his 2023 debut was delayed two months while tending to a preseason oblique injury. Still, Glasnow managed to throw the most innings of his career in 2023. Never having an xFIP or FIP over 4.00 since 2017, Glasnow’s primary issue has been staying on the field. One word of caution: Glasnow has consistently given up barrels and hard hits at a higher rate than expected and Dodger Stadium is second only to Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park for home run propensity. Assuming that suppressing hard contact isn’t something a pitcher significantly controls, expect a top-10 starting pitcher for the next three years.

14.Zac Gallen, RHP, D-backs

The D-backs ace built on his breakout 2022, ranking as the fourth-best pitcher in fantasy baseball in 2023. Gallen has shown the ability to go 200+ innings and has the swing and miss stuff and command to rank among the top starters in the game for years to come.

15. Zack Wheeler, RHP, Phillies

Now 33, Wheeler has made good on his once highly-rated prospect status and developed into one of the more consistent top-of-the-rotation starters in the game. Wheeler has averaged 30 starts and 186 innings per year over the last three seasons, posting a 3.08 ERA, 3.14 xFIP with 10.0 K/9 and 1.92 BB/9. Wheeler still has a few more high-level seasons remaining, health permitting.

16. Bobby Miller, RHP, Dodgers

Miller’s excellent rookie season was lost in the haze of a historic rookie class. The fireballing righthander showcased a strong combination of stuff and pitchability in his debut. Over 22 starts, Miller walked just 6.3% of batters faced while driving groundballs at a rate of 47.7% and an 11.3% swinging strike rate. Miller shows a balance of power stuff, strike-throwing and flyball suppression that should help him develop into a frontline starter.

17. Freddy Peralta, RHP, Brewers

As good as Skubal was in the second half, Peralta’s strikeout-to-walk percentage (30.6% to 2.8%) was even better and he won just as many games (seven). Peralta seemingly put his 2022 shoulder woes behind him and gained two mph on his fastball, subsequently throwing a career-high 165 innings with a 1.12 WHIP and 3.86 ERA. Heading into his age-28 season, Peralta is easily a top-15 arm if he stays healthy.

18. Aaron Nola, RHP, Phillies

Nola lacks the power of other frontline starters and instead rides the quality of his fastball and curveball to great success. But his fastball lost effectiveness in 2023 and his numbers suffered. Suppressing hard contact is essential to Nola’s success. Similarly to his 2021 season, Nola was penalized for hard contact allowed in 2023. Nola’s barrel rates and hard-hit rates jumped in 2023, leading to a jump in home runs allowed. It’s tough to know if these are signs of Nola regressing or simply an unlucky season.

19. Jesus Luzardo, LHP, Marlins

In his first season exceeding 18 starts, Luzardo had 205 strikeouts, a 3.58 ERA and a solid 1.21 WHIP. He averaged roughly one mph more in velocity on his four-seamer, slider and changeup compared to 2022. The 25-year-old lefty sustained the velocity gains throughout the entire season, and his average fastball velocity dipped to 96 mph just once during a start in September. Luzardo showed he has the stamina to take on the rigors of a full season. Roster him with confidence.

20. Logan Gilbert, RHP, Mariners

Gilbert’s xFIP has improved each of the last three seasons, pointing to a strong underlying mix of skills. He showed the best command of his career in 2023, walking just 4.7% of batters he faced. He finished 2023 with the highest groundball rate of his career as well as a career high in called + looking strikes rate (27.1%). Gilbert sits 95-96 mph on his fastball with a plus slider and two additional secondaries that finished with positive run values in 2023.

21. Max Fried, LHP, Braves

Fried enters a contract year in 2024 looking to stay healthy after he was limited to just 14 starts last season. The lefthander has produced excellent numbers when on the mound but has yet to exceed 185 innings in a season as a professional. Despite holding his velocity consistently over the last three seasons, Fried’s fastball performance took a hit in 2023. He’s a solid performer with injury risk and some cracks beginning to show.

22. Blake Snell, LHP, Free Agent

Snell won his second Cy Young award last year with a 2.25 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 234 strikeouts over 180 innings. That marked his first time reaching 175 strikeouts and 130 innings since 2018 when he won his previous Cy Young award with the Rays. Still unsigned as of publication, the 31-year-old can be counted on for high strikeouts and a good ERA for at least four more years. His high pitch counts often prevent him from going deep into games and could cap his potential win totals. Snell had the second-lowest innings-per-start among the 25 pitchers who accumulated 180 innings or more in 2023, ahead of only Lucas Giolito.

23. Logan Webb, RHP, Giants

Webb enters his age-27 season as the preeminent groundball pitcher in baseball. He surpassed the 200-inning threshold in 2023 and finished tied with Gerrit Cole for the most quality starts in MLB. Webb sees a value jump in points and quality start formats, as his innings totals and ability to go six or more innings each start is of the utmost value.

24. Framber Valdez, LHP, Astros

Valdez has cemented himself as Houston’s most reliable starter over the last two seasons. He consistently goes deep into games, drives groundballs and generates strikeouts at an above-average rate. Valdez enters his age-30 season with the expectation of providing fantasy No. 2 style numbers for the next few seasons.

25. Hunter Greene, RHP, Reds

Greene was a trendy breakout pick heading into 2023, but he struggled to keep hitters off his fastball and the pitch continues to return negative run value. Despite triple-digit fastball velocity, Greene’s upper-80s slider remains his bread and butter. His lack of a third pitch complicates matters, as opposing hitters slugged .518 his fastball, making Greene far too predictable.

26. Kodai Senga, RHP, Mets

At the end of April, Senga had a 4.15 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. From that point forward, the Japanese import had a 2.76 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 140 innings. The “ghost fork” was as hellacious as advertised, earning a 98th percentile run value on the pitch, with a .182 xwOBA against and 60% whiffs. A league-average splitter is hit at a roughly .250 wOBA clip and generates around 35% whiffs. Heading into his age-31 season, expect an ERA below 4.00 but with a higher-than-average WHIP due to his suboptimal command.

27. Tanner Bibee, RHP, Guardians

Hip inflammation ended Bibee’s standout rookie campaign, but the righthander impressed over his previous 25 starts. Bibee showed above-average bat-missing ability and command. His fastball, slider and changeup all graded as above-average pitches per run values. Health permitting, Bibee looks like a fantasy No. 2 in the making.

28. Zach Eflin, RHP, Rays

The Rays made tangible changes to Eflin’s pitch mix in his first season in the AL East. The righthander threw his cutter and curve more while using his fastball less—to both-handed batters—and the result was a career high in innings pitched and a career-best ERA, FIP and xFIP. Projections see some regression, but the 29-year-old should still have a low-to-mid-3s ERA with a better-than-average WHIP.

29. Shane Baz, RHP, Rays

Baz was trending toward becoming one of the top young pitchers in baseball prior to undergoing Tommy John surgery. He has the pitch mix and stuff to navigate big league lineups consistently, deploying an easily plus fastball with whiff-inducing qualities, a plus slider and an average changeup. His ceiling in the coming seasons will be dictated by how quickly he returns to form from injury.

30. Joe Ryan, RHP, Twins

There was a lot of optimism Ryan would take a large step forward last season after posting a 3.55 ERA and 1.10 WHIP across 147 innings in 2022. Indeed, he increased his strikeout rate from 25.0% to 29.3% and lowered his walk rate from 7.8% to 5.1% while throwing 161 innings for the playoff-bound Twins. But those gains were diminished by allowing the seventh-most home runs in the league. As a flyball pitcher who has been in the bottom percentiles in groundball rate in both 2022 and 2023, he will be susceptible to the long ball and HR/9 variance. Assuming regression to league average in 2024, though, ERA estimators project around a 4.00 ERA with a better-than-average WHIP for the 27-year-old. That’s a solid midrotation starter.

31. Kyle Bradish, RHP, Orioles

After an unspectacular rookie campaign in 2022, Bradish took a giant step forward in 2023, ranking as the 10th-best pitcher in fantasy in 2023. His mix of two above-average breaking balls, a sinker and cut-fastball helped Bradish cruise to a 2.83 ERA and around a strikeout per inning. Bradish is 27 years old entering 2024 and showed the ability to provide quality innings for a playoff-caliber team.

32. Gavin Williams, RHP, Guardians

Williams showed his high-powered arsenal can be effective against major league hitters over 16 starts in 2023. His fastball and slider both graded out as above-average pitchers per run value. His command was shaky at times (10.7% walk rate), but he showed swing-and-miss ability (12.1% swinging strike rate) and pitched to a 2.98 ERA and 25.1% strikeout rate post all-star break.

33. Carlos Rodon, LHP, Yankees

Rodon dealt with injuries that limited him to just 14 starts in his first season in New York. There’s concern the back injury he dealt with last year could be a chronic issue, which isn’t great news for managers of the 31-year-old lefty in fantasy. Rodon has the ability to be one of the bigger bounceback players of 2024 if he can remain healthy and approach his production from 2021 and 2022. Rodon is a classic risk versus reward proposition in fantasy.

34. Edwin Diaz, RHP, Mets

Mets fans were ready to cancel the World Baseball Classic after Diaz suffered a season-ending injury celebrating a team Puerto Rico victory. The closer is poised to return to full strength in 2024. At 29 years old, Diaz is one of the elite relievers in the game and should have several more years of relevance.

35. Cole Ragans, LHP, Royals

To say that Ragans was a revelation for the Royals after they acquired him from the Rangers is an understatement. He racked up 89 strikeouts over 71.2 innings with a 2.64 ERA supported by a 3.28 xFIP in a dozen starts for the Royals after the all-star break. Ragans went six or more innings in nine of those 12 starts, mixing three breaking ball shapes, a changeup and a fastball that sits 94-97 mph. All of Ragans pitches graded as average to plus per run values and they missed bats, generating a 15% swinging strike rate as a starter. The biggest question is how many innings will Ragans pitch in 2024 and can he maintain health?

36. Ricky Tiedemann, LHP, Blue Jays

An early May biceps injury robbed Tiedemann of the majority of his 2023, but he returned late in the season and impressed in the Arizona Fall League. He’s a low-slot lefthander with a chance to develop three plus pitches with above-average command. Health is the biggest question mark facing the Blue Jays top prospect.

37. Joe Musgrove, RHP, Padres

Musgrove was a top-20 pitcher in 2021 and a top-30 pitcher in 2022. But he made just 17 starts in 2023 and his value took a tumble. Musgrove enters his age-31 season with a good setup to return to value, as he missed time early with a freak toe injury (he dropped a weight on it) and late-season shoulder soreness. The latter injury is certainly a wart, but the production was there when Musgrove was healthy in 2023. Musgrove could have a few more top-30 starting pitcher seasons remaining if he can stay healthy.

38. Dylan Cease, RHP, White Sox

After finishing as the sixth-best pitcher in fantasy in 2022, the bottom fell out for Cease in 2023 en route to finishing as starting pitcher No. 127. Cease’s command backed up and he was hit hard. There’s some bad batted ball luck at play with Cease and a potential change of scenery might do him some good. Cease has elite bat-missing ability (13.6% swinging strike rate) and the stuff to back it. At 28 years old, Cease isn’t a bad bounceback candidate in dynasty.

39. Bryce Miller, RHP, Mariners

Entering 2023, Miller was viewed as a strong pitching prospect with some relief risk. After struggling over four starts at Double-A to begin 2023, Miller was promoted to majors and made 25 starts. He racked up 131 innings, striking out 22.2% of batters he faced while walking just 4.8%. Miller sits 94-96 mph with excellent fastball movement, and he leans into its quality throwing 66.1% fastballs in 2023. Miller’s slider showed well in spurts and his changeup graded as a fringe-average pitch.

40. Emmanuel Clase, RHP, Guardians

A year after finishing as the top reliever in fantasy in 2022, Clase slipped back to eighth overall. Clase put up nearly identical totals in innings and saves year over year, but saw his strikeouts drop 25% year over year. Both his cut-fastball and slider took a step back. Clase did lose a half a mph on his fastball velocity and it’s uncertain if that was the difference, or if it was merely just bad luck.

41. Justin Steele, LHP, Cubs

After a standout second half in 2022, Steele rode that momentum into 2023 finishing 10th overall among pitchers. Steele is unique, as he’s a two-pitch lefthander that sits low 90s on his fastball. He does a great job of generating whiffs against his fastball and slider particularly out of the zone. Steele proved late 2022 was no fluke, but whether or not he can hold this level of production remains to be seen.

42. Jackson Jobe, RHP, Tigers

Jobe missed the first half of the 2023 season with a back injury, but once he returned, he was every bit as dominant as the Tigers had hoped for when they picked him third overall in 2021. Jobe has multiple ways to get hitters out, as well as some of the best pure stuff in the minors.

43. Hunter Brown, RHP, Astros

The fireballing Brown dealt with tricky luck over 29 starts during his rookie campaign. Brown showed the ability to generate groundballs (52.4% groundball rate) and strikeouts (10.29 K/9), but was crushed by bad luck on balls in play (.330 BABIP). With three pitches that feature outlier power, it’s not unreasonable to expect Brown to take a step forward in 2024.

44. Bryan Woo, RHP, Mariners

After a dominant showing with Double-A Arkansas to begin the season, Woo was promoted to the major leagues where he impressed over 18 starts. Woo mixes a mid-90s fastball from a low release and it accounts for 70% of his usage. He shares similar concerns as fellow Mariners righty Bryce Miller, as his fastball usage is unusually high. Woo throws a cutter and slider, and increased usage of either could welcome more sustainable production.

45. Paul Skenes, RHP, Pirates

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 draft was an easy choice for the top spot in the Pirates’ system and has one of the highest ceilings of any pitching prospect in the sport. There might be a few tweaks required, but he has the stuff and pedigree to lead Pittsburgh’s next generation.

46. Jacob deGrom, RHP, Rangers

DeGrom was discounted in drafts heading into 2023 because of his poor health the previous two seasons. Worst fears were confirmed when DeGrom went down with an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery in late April. Whether or not he can return to his pre-2021 form is a major question, but it’s a worthy gamble if you’re a year away from competing.

47. Shane McClanahan, LHP, Rays

McClanahan looked poised to perform as one of the 10 best fantasy starters in baseball in 2023 after finishing as the 11th-best pitcher in 2022. Instead, he underwent Tommy John surgery and is on the shelf for all of 2024. McClanahan will be 28 years old when he returns and it’s a question as to whether or not he retains his upper-90s fastball long term.

48. Nick Lodolo, LHP, Reds

After a standout rookie campaign in 2022, Lodolo entered 2023 with significant buzz. Unfortunately, the hype didn’t match the production, as Lodolo was limited to just seven starts total. When healthy, the 6-foot-6 lefty mixes an unusual fastball shape with a nasty slider and a changeup. It’s never been a matter of stuff or execution with Lodolo, but simply whether or not he can maintain health.

49. Andrew Painter, RHP, Phillies

Before having Tommy John surgery, Painter ranked as one of the sport’s elite pitching prospects. Even after the surgery, little has changed. If his stuff returns intact, he could give Philly its next homegrown ace.

50. Jhoan Duran, RHP, Twins

One of the premier power relievers in the game, Duran took over closer duties for the Twins in 2023 and saved 27 games. His power mix is noteworthy, as his splinker sits 97-98 mph and is the first secondary to touch 100 mph in MLB history. A power reliever through and through, a top-five closer season for Duran in 2024 isn’t out of the realm of possibility.

51. Emmet Sheehan, RHP, Dodgers
