Early 2017 Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitcher Rankings

Dodgers rookie Julio Urias was good for three innings in Game 4 of the NLCS on Wednesday night, but it all came apart in the fourth inning when he allowed four runs before being pulled from the game. He allowed an RBI single and an RBI groundout, and then came the big blow -a two-run... Read More

Welcome back to the series that further proves that the itch of fantasy baseball never goes away. We're gathered here to look at my thoughts on the top players at each position. Assume a standard 5x5 redraft league with the rankings. We led off with catchers before hitting first, second, and third base before going to shortstop, and after... Read More

Rookie Ryan Merritt might not have many innings under his belt, but does he ever have some important ones. On Wednesday night, he started against the Blue Jays in their elimination game and shut them out over 4.1 innings, allowing only two hits while striking out three. Before anyone gets too excited about his fantasy... Read More

Outfielder Coco Crisp helped sink the Blue Jays' hopes of the World Series Wednesday as the Indians shut them out 3-0. He finished the game 1-for-2, pushing his 2016 postseason average up to .214 to go along with two home runs, three RBI and one stolen base. Crisp remains part of the Indians' deep outfield,...

Like teammate Addison Russell, Anthony Rizzo had greatly struggled in the postseason. As one of the team’s top hitters, his bat carries extra weight in Chicago, and Rizzo responded masterfully tonight. Picking up three this and driving three runs, the 27-year-old finally woke up, homering to lead off the fifth after striking out his first... Read More

For the first time this season, the Chicago Cubs faced real adversity heading into Game 4 of the National League Championship Series tonight. Trailing two games to one, they were one loss away from facing elimination, but the team’s offense finally awoke from their deep slumber. At the forefront of the 10-2 victory was Addison...

When Brad Boxberger went down at the beginning of the season, Alex Colome stepped into the closer role and never relinquished his new title. He cashed in on 37 of his 40 save opportunities — including each of his first 21 — and posted a 1.91 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and 71 K in 56.2... Read More

After a breakout 2015 campaign, Logan Forsythe got off to a hot start in 2016. He hit .341 with four homers in April, but managed just a .249 average the rest of the way. He finished the season with a .264/.333/.444 slash line to go along with 20 HR, 76 R, 52 RBI and six... Read More

Brad Miller didn’t quite improve across the board — he stole six bases and batted just .243 — but he did take his power to the next level. The 27-year-old smacked 30 HR, the most among shortstops, and added 73 R and 81 RBI. The Rays plan to make Miller their permanent first baseman next... Read More

In his age-30 season, Evan Longoria set new career highs in at-bats (633), hits (173) and home runs (36), adding in 81 R, 98 RBI and a .273/.318/.521 slash line. He has been plagued by the “injury-prone” narrative for much of his career, but the three-time All-Star has played at least 160 games in each... Read More

Drew Smyly was incredibly streaky in what many owners expected to be a breakout 2016 season. He took a 2.60 ERA into May, but that number was up to 5.47 by the break. The 27-year-old strung together five consecutive quality starts early in the second half, but managed 15 runs and just a 2:1 K:BB... Read More

If Edwin Encarnacion has played his final game as a Toronto Blue Jay, he certainly didn’t go out the way he would have hoped. In the Jays’ 3-0 ALCS-ending loss to the Indians, Encarnacion finished 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. Notwithstanding today’s goose egg, Encarnacion had a fantastic postseason where he hit .286/.359/.571 to go along... Read More

Marco Estrada certainly put together a very good season, but unfortunately for Jays fans it all came to an end on Wednesday night. In Game 5 of the ALCS, Estrada threw six innings and allowed two earned runs (three total) on five hits, including two home runs. Estrada struck out seven in the losing effort.... Read More

It's been a consistent running theme in Stephen Strasburg's career - a ton of talent, stretches of domination, and an injury that cuts a season short. After compiling a 15-4 record and striking out 183 batters in 147.2 innings of work, a flexor mass strain and a partially torn pronator tendon ended the campaign on... Read More

The 2016 season was one to remember and one to forget for Wilson Ramos. It was a true breakout performance - a .307/.354/.496 slash line to go along with 22 HR and 80 RBI - all from the catcher position. Unfortunately, a torn ACL cut this dynamic season short, leaving questions about the future of... Read More
