2017 fantasy baseball: nl starting pitcher pecota projections a-m


most fantasy players play in mixed leagues. the occasional hardcore fan will play in an al or nl only league, but those are becoming fewer and further between. yet, the question is always raised about why we would separate nl and al pitchers in our profile. the answer is really quite simple: the median nl pitcher will usually be a little better than the median al pitcher. facing pitchers and pinch hitters in the batting order is better than facing a designated hitter. of course, the gap is not what it used to be.we are comparing nl pitchers with the median at the position. we took every pitcher projected to pitch 100 or more innings and put them on a spreadsheet. we then took the median of each of the four major categories for starters (wins, era, whip, strikeouts) and threw in innings as
