2014 Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings

Starting pitching continues to get better and better each and every year. Clayton Kershaw is the best pitcher in the game as he posted a 1.83 ERA last season, but there are arguably 20-25 pitchers after him who are true aces.  There are a lot of young pitching that has come up in the past few seasons who are now considered top of the rotation guys and will no longer see an innings limit.  You also can't forget about Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka, who many think could challenge all pitchers for the Cy Young.  But do not over value pitching!  Remember, they pitch once every 5 days, while that 3rd OF and your SS play just about everyday!

Kris Medlen, Brandon Beachy and Jarrod Parker will miss the 2014 season

Cole Hamels May Not Pich In April

Hisashi Iwakuma to miss 4-6 weeks:

The time off will set Iwakuma’s throwing program back significantly making it impossible for him to be ready for the beginning of the season. - Seattle Times
