Preseason Power Rankings: Starting Pitcher Season Preview
Last month, we unveiled our preseason All-America teams, which followed one guiding principle: If we were building a team to win the 2019 national title, which players would we choose? We use that same philosophy to construct our Position Power Rankings — think of them as an extension of our preseason All-America teams.
These are NOT pro prospect lists, but they do take pure talent into consideration. Players who proved themselves against top competition in summer ball and look poised for breakout years might rank higher on the list than other players with gaudier stats from last spring. We considered past performance and offensive statistics, but we tried to keep the numbers in context, because some leagues or ballparks are more offensive than others, and some leagues simply have more talent than others — so all stat lines are not created equal. So in addition to the numbers, we also considered raw talent, defensive ability (especially at premium positions), makeup and reports of development over the summer and fall.
We’ll revisit the Position Power Rankings over the course of the season. Here’s a look at the top 200 starting pitchers in college baseball.
