From the 21st of January to the 20th of February, the writers at TDG will be taking you through our rankings position-by-position. As I mentioned in the primer, this year we’re doing things a little differently. Instead of having my personal rankings up on this site, like last year, these rankings for 2014 are of the consensus variety and being brought to you by all of the TDG staff. Everyone put a lot of work into this project, so we hope you enjoy the end result. And if you are looking for my personal dynasty league rankings, you can find them this off-season at Baseball Prospectus.
So we hope you enjoy the rankings package that we’ve put together here. And if you do, I hope that you will make a donation to show appreciation for the content you’ve seen here at the Dynasty Guru. You can do that through this link, or by clicking the “Donate” button on the top-right corner of the homepage. All donations are truly appreciated.
Now the final 75 best starting pitchers in dynasty leagues, starting with a Braves’ pitching prospect who has a bright future ahead of him:
126) Lucas Sims, Atlanta Braves (Age: 20, Previous Rank: NR)
The Braves top prospect acquitted himself well in the Sally last summer, allowing just 83 hits in 116 2/3 innings. He’s ticketed for the Hi-A Carolina League to start this season, with a promotion to AA a very real possibility by mid-season if he continues to hone his command. He makes for a solid trade target for rebuilding owners with an eye on 2015 and beyond.
