Every two weeks, I post the top ten ranked pitchers over the two-week period, in order to test the theory that in fantasy baseball, drafted starting pitchers have little added value over starters added off the waiver wire.

Using baseball monster, I determined value for pitchers based on four categories: wins, strikeouts, ERA and WHIP.  Here are this week’s top ten:

  • Zack Greinke
  • Johan Santana
  • Chad Billingsley
  • Kevin Millwood
  • Roy Halladay
  • Andrew Bailey (RP)
  • Josh Johnson
  • Armando Galarraga
  • Kyle Lohse
  • Erik Bedard

I’ll have analysis in future posts.  For now, all I’ll say is that three of the top ten were early draft picks, three were mid-late draft picks, and four went undrafted.
