2023 Staff Consensus Top 100 Starting Pitcher Rankings

It’s Fantasy Baseball draft season! While some of us degenerates were drafting back in October and November, now is the time when fantasy baseball drafts really kick into high gear. We here at FantraxHQ have been pumping out a ton of great content all offseason long and are diving head-first into our 2023 Fantrax Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit. A big part of any draft kit are the rankings, and we’re starting our staff consensus rankings for 2023 with our Top 100 starting pitcher rankings.

Below you’ll find the consensus rankings that seven of our MLB writers were involved in. The writers involved are Eric Cross, Lauren Auerbach, David Mendelson, Mike Carter, Taylor Tarter, Ryan Kirksey, and Dave Funnell Each writer provided anywhere from 100-150 pitchers so we could create our consensus top-100.

The 2023 pitcher landscape is very exciting and as deep as it’s been in years. However, there isn’t a concrete order at the top and personal preferences here go several different ways as early as #3 overall.

Hopefully, these rankings will help assist you in all your fantasy drafts this season, and make sure to check out our 2023 Draft Kit for more great content leading up to opening day!

Now is the time to take your fantasy baseball game to the next level! Move your league over to Fantrax today or join a new league in our Game Lobby!

    Wow, Walker Buelher isn’t in top 100?

    1. Eric Cross says

      He had TJS in August. Best case scenario is that he pitches for a month this season.
