Pitching 3D: Starting Pitchers 31-40

Doug Thorburn

Doug started writing for RotoWire in April of 2015. His work can be found elsewhere at Baseball Prospectus and RotoGrinders, and as the co-host of the Baseballholics Anonymous podcast. Thorburn's expertise lies on the mound, where he tackles the world of pitching with an emphasis on mechanical evaluation. He spent five years at the National Pitching Association working under pitching coach Tom House, where Thorburn ran the hi-speed motion analysis program in addition to serving as an instructor. Thorburn and House wrote the 2009 book, “Arm Action, Arm Path, and the Perfect Pitch: Building a Million Dollar Arm,” using data from hi-speed motion analysis to tackle conventional wisdom in baseball. His DraftKings ID is “Raising Aces”.

The clustering continues as we work our way down the value ladder of fantasy starting pitchers. After the eight players who tied with 33 points apiece in our last edition, this time we have another eight starting pitchers, each of whom checks in with 32 points on our scale of stats, stuff and mechanics. We'll also cover a pair of arms that top the set of 31-point pitchers, but who slipped far down these rankings when compared to the NFBC ADP.

Here's a quick review of the rankings:
