2017 Top Fantasy Starting Pitchers

I’ll pass on Fenway Park Chris Sale in Round 2, thanks very much. Yes, I know his home park in Chicago wasn’t easy, either … I love Jose Quintana, and I don’t care if everyone else doesn’t. He’s my SP20 … As I wrote in this “9 Things to Know” piece, the Rockies finally have a rosterable starting pitcher. We’ve been waiting for you forever, Jon Gray … I don’t get the Aaron Sanchez love. Great stuff, big potential, hasn’t yet done anything worthy of being ranked as a top-30 starter … There’s plenty of strikeout upside in the SP 4/5 area. Some of the names to consider are Vince Velasquez, Lance McCullers, Carlos Rodon, James Paxton and my pal Robbie Ray. My late-late-late preference is Cincinnati’s Brandon Finnegan, who improved quite a bit over the second half of last season … David Price (elbow) is expected to start the season on the DL … Rest in peace, Jose Fernandez. I’ll miss watching you pitch.
