The Baller Ranks: Weekly Top 101 Starting Pitcher Rankings

And just like that, the calendar creeps towards July and we all descend into heat-induced comas filled with spin-rate fever dreams. Meditate with me and think of a happy, Manfred-less baseball universe as we update my weekly Starting Pitcher Baller Ranks. I take stock of my top 101 SPs moving forward. We're halfway into the season, so I've changed the visible stats on my table to display numbers from May 27-June 27 for more relevant intel from the past month. So the "EV" below is Earned Value via Fangraphs for that period.

Click the link! This google sheet accompanies the table below and adds relevant 5x5 stats, K%, BB%, BABIP, FIP, xFIP, SIERA, ERA-FIP, and CSW%. Do note that I leave off most injured players, and removing those injured players can give an illusion that others have risen despite mediocre performances. I highly encourage you to click the link.

To be clear, these Rest of Season ranks are geared towards traditional 5x5 leagues sans most injured SPs, lest a return is imminent. If 25% of the board is on the IL, then it isn't terribly actionable, and I'll intermittently weave in updates of where I'd throw them in if they were healthy. For now, let's dive into my Top 101 SPs and be sure we've got the best rotation possible.
