Tout Table: Draft Day Regrets

If Frank Sinatra can have regrets, so can the Touts.

What is your biggest draft day regret?

Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis): My biggest draft day regret is drafting a starting pitcher with the 4th overall pick. I drafted Spencer Strider and he’s out for the season. Too many injuries to starting pitchers this season. I passed on the likes of Julio Rodriguez and Bobby Witt Jr.. Big mistake.

Chris Clegg (Pitcher List, @RotoClegg): My biggest draft day regrets have come in leagues where I invested heavily in pitching. Obviously, we could not predict the injuries, but passing up on good bats has hurt me in several places. Especially AL LABR where my three most expensive draft day buys were Gerrit Cole, Pablo Lopez, and Josh Hader.

Chris Blessing (BaseballHQ, @C_Blessing): My biggest draft day regret is that I don’t carb load enough before the draft. If I am overanalyzing a pick when I am on the clock or bidding, it’s a bad omen. You make mistakes when you don’t trust your instincts and preparation on draft day. Every pick I’ve regretted this year has been picks I’ve overanalyzed, whether it’s my multiple shares in Andres Gimenez or me wanting to overpay for pitching when there are similar gets to be had later in the draft or at a lower price.

Patrick Davitt (BaseballHQ, @patrickdavitt): Across the board(s), I relied too heavily on “boring old veterans” at seemingly great prices. Lindor, Arenado, Goldschmidt, Springer, Santana, Abreu … ugh.

Brian Entrekin (Fantasy Pros, BaseballHQ, @bdentrek): My biggest regret is taking 1B for granted. I really thought the position was deep and that waiting for Rizzo, Bell and others would be fine. That has not been the case. I loved Josh Naylor but thought waiting was better answer…definitely a major regret of mine.

Derek Carty (RotoGrinders, @DerekCarty): Spending $38 on a guy who made two starts with a 7.00 ERA.

JB Branson (Rotoballer, @RowdyRotoJB): The amount of collective money I spent across my leagues on two young Texas Outfielders with 75 combined big-league PA.

Peter Kreutzer (, @kroyte): In pursuit of an inexpensive pitching staff I made risky plays on the free agents Blake Snell ($5) and Jordan Montgomery ($5) and injured guys Braxton Garrett ($7) and Jameson Taillon ($3) and was very excited when both Snell and Montgomery landed in the NL. i ‘won” the injured guys bets, too, insofar as they’re both pitching, but Snell, Montgomery, and Garrett have been terrible and have offset the strong efforts of Max Fried, Jordan Hicks, and Taillon. I regret getting excited.

Ariel Cohen (CBS Sports, @ATCNY): I’ll answer this a bit differently than most. I don’t have too many regrets – because I stuck to my draft process. There is a range of outcomes that can happen – both on the positive and negative side. I do NOT regret passing on Elly De La Cruz. I think that was the right well thought out process. His draft price was prohibitive, and he was hitting (for a month) almost his upside outcome. I don’t regret drafting Acuna at 1.1 – because that was the right player to bet on to hold a very high value. Unless you knew he was going to be injured for the season on his “good” knee, there was nothing wrong with that process. Perhaps maybe I regret not having even more Taylor Ward shares — but auctions are dynamic, and there were other bargains available to me at the time that I couldn’t pass up. On the whole, I choose not to regret what I did on draft day 2024.

Brent Hershey (Baseball HQ, @BrentHQ): This might be a “too many teams” problem … but not rostering (mostly young-ish) players who I had identified as soft “targets” for 2023 who didn’t have good seasons last year, for either health or performance reasons. It’s the year-too-early syndrome: C Schmidt (pre-injury), Bohm, N Cortes, Sale, J Ryan, etc. It’s succumbing to recency bias, somehow figuring they were lost causes since they struggled in 2023. Injuries happen, and not all the youngsters get better. I’ll be revisiting my 2024 prep with this in mind for 2025.

Justin Mason (Friends With Fantasy Benefits, @JustinMasonFWFB): My biggest draft day regret is not getting enough power. While I like to draft a balanced roster, I didn’t put enough emphasis on getting a good power base for my teams and with the dearth of power this season, it is hard to make up for it on the waiver wire.

Andy Behrens (Yahoo Fantasy Sports, @andybehrens): It’s not specifically a Tout regret, but I can tell you I’m not entirely pleased with the production I’ve received from Nolan Jones across various leagues. (I’m ashamed to say the exact number.) We all knew he’d regress to some extent, but I still thought the power/speed totals would ultimately prove useful. Instead, he was a mess to begin the season, then injured and reinjured, and now the team is hesitant to end his rehab due to an ongoing inability to hit. So yes, I am experiencing certain Jones-related fantasy regrets.

Jeff Zimmerman (Fangraphs, @jeffwzimmerman): First, I scheduled an Auction for the fourth draft over the weekend. I was burnt by that point, and it showed. I need to be rested before one. Second, too many leagues. This year I’ll be able to plan around the CLQ at the NFBC. Third, I need to get one more arm in the first 10 rounds. My teams are unbalanced heavily to the hitting side. Finally, no more paying up for untalented stolen base threats (e.g. Hoerner). There are plenty of untalented stolen bases threats available on the waiver wire.

Michael A. Stein (Fantasy Judgment, @FantasyJudgment): My biggest regret is targeting pitching early because of all the injuries I have sustained. I don’t specifically regret the individual pitchers I drafted who deserved to be taken early, but that decision to aim high on upper-echelon starters early in drafts gave me a false sense of security to pass on additional pitching depth over the next several rounds. This has left me with a lack of depth that I have not been able to overcome. I also underestimated the availability of power hitters because I was focusing on players with more versatility given the increase in stolen bases.

Frank Ammirante (The GameDayHQ, @FAmmiranteTFJ): My biggest regret is not getting any Shota Imanaga shares. I liked him but I should have prioritized him more.

Ray Flowers (Fantasy Guru, @TheRayFlowers): Recommending to anyone it was safe to draft Corbin Carroll. Obviously, we all missed on him, but his effort to date has been simply disastrous.

Dr. Roto (, @DrRoto): Waiting on closers!! Taking Tanner Scott has been detrimental to more than one of my rosters.

Scott Engel (The Game Day, @ScottETheKing): Not being more aggressive on superstars, especially when I nailed Brice Turang, Jordan Westburg, Maysn Winn, Jurickson Profar, and Jack Flaherty during dollar days. I did not spend up enough for prime power in the Mixed Auction and I am not feeling the overall impact of my cheaper gems enough.

Rudy Gamble (Razzball, @RudyGamble): Drafting Strider over Bobby Witt with pick 2 in my Main Event was catastrophic. Not thrilled about paying full retail price for Wyatt Langford in that draft either.

Fred Zinkie (Yahoo/Rotowire, @FredZinkieMLB): Two words. Corbin Carroll.

Michael Govier (Pallazzo Podcast, @mjgovier): Justin Mason did me a massive solid by drafting for me in NYC since I couldn’t make it last minute. I’ll never forget that. I can’t use my Tout team for this question, so I’ll go in another direction. My draft day regret comes from sticking to diversification across multiple drafts & formats instead of sticking to the prep work I did in the offseason which revealed to me the players who offered greater value beyond their generally expected output based on auction price. We diversify across multiple drafts to hopefully limit our risk & exposure to being universally stuck with a player who may not live up to our expectations in-season. The threat of a player missing large amounts of time due to unforeseen injuries also strikes fear in the hearts of fantasy managers everywhere. Going all in on players analyzed from multiple perspectives certainly holds boom or bust potential. My point is simple: if you trust your work & feel secure about the analysis you’ve done, then I say ride the snake! It’s worth it! Yes, injuries can derail your season without any warning, but for volume players the strike-it-rich potential of sticking with your guys is very appealing to me. If the price is working the waiver wire a little bit harder than I wanted to, I still say it’s worth the payout. In the end are your goals focused on dominating your home league only or would you rather achieve total hegemonic control across several leagues?

CJ Kaltenbach (Fantasy Guru, @TheSeigeDFS): Assuming the baseball wouldn’t change again. over drafted pitching thinking it would be at a premium when instead it’s hitting that’s at a premium

Alex Chamberlain (FanGraphs, @DolphHauldhagen): For Tout Wars, I want to be competitive and show well. I also want to have fun and use it as an opportunity to grab guys I like but didn’t end up very much or at all on other teams. Needless to say, starting a bidding war on Cedric Mullins II with Justin Mason just for fun has been a catastrophic waste of $15. I also, for the third year, did not draft enough pitching depth—and while my pitching is neither great nor horrible, it is thin, and the lack of depth has been painful. In 15-team leagues the waiver wire is routinely barren—and when it’s not, the bidding is cutthroat.

Mike Gianella (Baseball Prospectus, @MikeGianella): Not getting as much Aaron Judge on as many teams as possible. I had him ranked higher than almost anyone and only have him on 1/4 of my teams.

Bret Sayre (Baseball Prospectus, @BretSayreBP): My biggest regret was not taking Paul Skenes with either one of my final active roster spots or my first reserve (Yennier Cano). I was too worried about not having enough saves, despite being very bullish on Skenes’ talent.

Jason Collette (Rotowire, @): Taking on too many old & safe guys which have been anything but this season. The aging curve appears to be accelerating on certain players as the mush ball is not traveling this season since we’re seeing a 10% decline on home runs per balls put into play

Rick Graham (Pitcher List, @IAmRickGraham): I see a few people mention that they regret taking veterans, but I definitely regret falling for prospect hype, specifically Wyatt Langford and Jackson Chourio. I usually stay away from those guys but decided to bite in a few leagues this year unfortunately.

Scott Swanay (FantasyBaseballSherpa, @fantasy_sherpa): For Tout Wars Mixed League Auction specifically, it’s not learning more from Brett Sayre, who’s leaned heavily into a stars & scrubs approach, and is also willing to spend significantly more than the traditional $180 of a $260 budget on Hitting. There’s a reason he’s the defending champ and leading this year by 20+ points.

Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola): By far, my biggest draft day regret is not having the food for the H2H draft delivered to the hotel on Sunday morning, and instead shlepping it several blocks, including having to go underground in the subway area since the road was blocked due to the road race. Fortunately, Jeff E helped lighten the load, and the H2H drafters are the best, so it ended up fine, but still…

Vlad Sedler (FTN Fantasy, @rotogut): My biggest regret is an odd one but it’s Austin Wells as my punt C2 in most of my leagues. He’s done virtually nothing, has been losing PT to Jose Trevino, and as expected, he crushes a dinger in his first start since I’ve dropped him.

Shelly Verougstraete (Fantasy Feud Podcast, @ShellyV_643): My biggest regret was not drafting enough power and middle of the order bats. I prioritized too many leadoff hitters so while my PAs and runs are through the roof, I’d really love some RBIs.

Dave Adler (Baseball HQ, @daveadler01): I don’t really get draft day regrets. I always go into drafts with a plan – as well as backup strategies in case the table is doing something other than anticipated. You’ll always have needs coming out of a draft, or players will underperform. You just need to stay attentive throughout the year, and address those needs via free agent acquisitions or trades.

Ryan Boyer (Rotowire, Baseball Prospectus, @RyanPBoyer): You’d think this would be the year to essentially punt on average (which was not my intention) since no one is hitting, but my teams have put that theory to test. I am at or near the bottom of nearly all of my leagues in the average category and that’s a tough hole to climb out of. I just need Corey Seager to hit .600 the rest of the way, is all.

Corbin Young (Baseball HQ, Rotowire, @corbin_young21): Typically, I leaned into a heavy pitching build, so my teams were chasing hitting during the season, but I took a different approach this year. So, I’m chasing pitching and doing relatively well in hitting. A few regrets include not prioritizing saves earlier on, not enough Mitch Keller, and being or feeling like a worse drafter with a fast clock.

Phil Hertz (Baseball HQ, @prhz50): I’ll mention two inter-related regrets. With Tout Wars having no minimum inning requirement, I went into the draft planning on getting all relievers (including at least two top closers). However, when I saw another Tout trying to do the same thing, I deviated from my plan. I wish I had stuck to my guns. The related item was choosing Edwin Diaz as the more expensive of the two closers chosen.

Erik Halterman (Rotowire, @erik_halterman): In Tout Wars, I’m still trying to decide the extent to which I regret my $18 Jordan Walker. I’m neither a Walker guy nor a Walker hater, but if I’m not actively excited by him, why did I spend that much on a player with real downside? I didn’t hate the price, but if I didn’t love the player, should I have passed? Outside of Tout Wars: why do I have so many shares of Blake Snell? I’m fine being someone who is higher on risky, high-strikeout arms than most drafters, so I don’t regret my early offseason drafts where I landed him. But when I moved him down the board as he remained unsigned, others moved him down even faster, and I kept drafting him. In hindsight, he seems like a very easily avoidable mistake.

Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola): OK, other than the breakfast fiasco, my regret is not following through on my intention to spend more on high-end batters. I’m happy with how I rostered pitching, but I should have been much more starrier and scrubbier with my sticks.

Tout Table: Would You Rather, Hitting Version

Last week we featured some pitching pairs; this week we’re running it back with batters.

Rest of season, would you rather roster: Elly De La Cruz, Bobby Witt Jr. or Gunnar Henderson? Freddie Freeman or Bryce Harper? Alec Bohm or Jose Ramirez? Jeremy Pena or Francisco Lindor? Teoscar Hernandez of Randy Arozarena?

Derek Carty (RotoGrinders, @DerekCarty): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar

Fred Zinkie (Yahoo/Rotowire, @FredZinkieMLB): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar. Witt was the only one of the five that I really debated.

Howard Bender (Fantasy Alarm, @RotoBuzzGuy): Witt, Harper, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar

Grey Albright (RazzBall, @razzball): Witt, Harper, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar

Chris Clegg (Pitcher List, @RotoClegg): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar

Tristan H. Cockcroft (ESPN, @SultanofStat): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena, with the first basemen and the outfielders the closest for me. This question does get tricky with the different scoring formats, but for here, I’m taking a standard roto 5×5 approach.

Mike Podhorzer (Fangraphs, @MikePodhorzer): Elly, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena

Brian Walton (CreativeSports2, @B_Walton): Witt, Harper, Bohm, Pena, Teoscar. In the three middle cases, I go with the younger player. Witt is oldest in his group, but not by much. Randy seems to have hit the wall hard, while Teoscar is right on his career norm.

Eric Samulski (Rotoballer, @SamskiNYC): Bobby Witt, Bryce Harper, Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor, Randy Arozarena. Elly is great, but he’s striking out over 31% of the time, is hitting .222 in May and has real splits issues. I can’t choose him over Witt.

Rick Graham (Pitcher List, @IAmRickGraham): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena. I’ll take Witt with his higher floor over Elly and his slightly higher ceiling. Leaning towards Freeman over Harper but it depends on team need (Harper for better power numbers, Freeman for everything else). Also leaning Arozarena as he’s trending the right way.

Michael A. Stein (Fantasy Judgment, @FantasyJudgment): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar. Lindor can’t be this bad, right? Right?????

Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis): Witt as he is on a recent tear and was a top 5 draft pick to start the season. Freeman as Harper can go through prolonged slumps. Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar.

Dr. Roto (, @DrRoto): Witt (I regret not taking him #2 overall in LABR), Harper, Ramirez, Lindor, Teoscar

Doug Dennis (BaseballHQ, @dougdennis41): EDLC, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena

Frank Stampfl (SportsGrid, RotoExperts, @Roto_Frank): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Hernandez… Harper has significantly closed the gap with Freeman. It’s basically a coin flip but I’ll take the batting average upside with Freeman. Arozarena’s plate discipline has me a touch worried and Teoscar Hernandez has looked great so far in that Dodgers lineup.

Patrick Davitt (BaseballHQ, @patrickdavitt): Gunnar, for added positional flex over Witt; Freeman, a bit less injury risk; J-Ram for more counting stats; Lindor, ditto plus like someone said, he can’t keep being this bad; Teo for BA but Arozarena for speed.

Mike Gianella (Baseball Prospectus, @MikeGianella): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena

Ryan Boyer (Rotowire, Baseball Prospectus, @RyanPBoyer): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Hernandez.

Sky Dombroske (Fantistics Insider Baseball, @SkyDombroske): Witt, Harper, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena. When in doubt with these pairings, I’m going with speed.

Erik Halterman (Rotowire, @erik_halterman): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena. Witt: others have closed the gap on him, but no more than that. Freeman: basically tied since he isn’t running like last year, but his durability keeps him slightly ahead. Ramirez: Bohm is having a career year, but I wouldn’t put him in this conversation yet. Lindor: Pena is doing a nice Lindor impression, but Lindor should be mostly fine. Arozarena: still have him ahead here for his speed and because he hasn’t started losing at-bats yet, but I’m nervous.

Bret Sayre (Baseball Prospectus, @BretSayreBP): Witt, Harper, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena.

Matt Cederholm (Baseball HQ, @TheBigHurtHQ): Gunnar, Freeman, J-Ram, Lindor, Teoscar

Vlad Sedler (FTN Fantasy, @rotogut): Witt, Harper, JRam, Lindor, Teoscar

Jeff Zimmerman (Fangraphs, @jeffwzimmerman): Witt, Freeman, Bohm and Ramirez are split. In most point formats it’s Bohm. Ramirez’s SB push him up in roto. Lindor (closer than expected). Hernandez with the blowout.

Paul Sporer (Fangraphs, @sporer): Elly v. Witt is really tough, and Gunnar isn’t far behind either… I think I’d lean Elly just for the endless # of SBs, from there it’s Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, & Teoscar

Joe Orrico (Fantasy Pros, @JoeOrrico99): Witt pretty easily for me here. I think there’s a good chance he ends up as the #1 overall player in 5X5. I’d take Harper over Freeman but it’s essentially a coin flip for me. Jose Ramirez very easily over Alec Bohm, regardless of format. Still riding with Lindor over Pena. It’s only a matter of time before he picks things up. Randy’s struggles coinciding with the resurgence of Teoscar makes this a lot closer than it probably should be, but my gut says to stick it out with Arozarena here.

Dave Adler (Baseball HQ, @daveadler01): Witt over De La Cruz or Henderson; combo of BA/HR/SB puts him a bit above the other two. Freeman/Harper pretty close; I’ll go with Freeman due to a more likely better BA/OBP moving forward. J. Ramirez big over Bohm; J-Ram’s low BABIP should correct, and higher OBP and speed give him the edge. Lindor over Pena; his .220 BABIP should get better while Pena’s .350 BABIP should ergress. J-Ram also projects for more SB. Arozarena big over Teoscar; again, big difference in BABIP, and Randy with much more speed.

Corbin Young (Baseball HQ, Rotowire, @corbin_young21): Bobby Witt and Gunnar Henderson for the safety and upside, but Elly De La Cruz is doing something special in 2024. Prefer Bryce Harper over Freddie Freeman since I don’t expect Freeman to run like last year. Jose Ramirez slightly but Alec Bohm plays well in OBP and points leagues. Francisco Lindor over Jeremy Peña because hasn’t shown the ceiling of Lindor yet. My gut says Randy Arozarena over Teoscar Hernandez, but Arozarena’s plate discipline struggles of lower contact rates in 2024 looks concerning, so maybe it’s smarter to stick with Hernandez instead of buying low on Arozarena.

Lauren Auerbach (Fantrax, @lkauerbach): Witt, Freeman, Ramirez, Lindor, Arozarena

Joe Gallina (Fantasy Alarm, @joegallina): Bobby Witt Jr., Bryce Harper, Jose Ramirez, Francisco Lindor, Teoscar Hernandez

Tout Table: Would you Rather, Pitcher Edition

This week, the Touts were asked to choose between two arms who were ranked closely (at the time) using earnings to date.

Rest of season, would you rather roster: Yoshinobu Yamamoto or Shota Imanaga? Tanner Houck or Ranger Suarez? Tyler Glasnow or Chris Sale? Bailey Ober or Joe Ryan? Cole Ragans or Mitch Keller?

Grey Albright (RazzBall, @razzball): Yamamoto, Ranger, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans

Derek Carty (RotoGrinders, @DerekCarty): Yamamoto, Ranger, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans

Doug Dennis (BaseballHQ, @dougdennis41): At this point, I want the higher floor. IMO, those are Imanaga, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Ryan Boyer (Rotowire, Baseball Prospectus, @RyanPBoyer): I’ve got Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan and Ragans. Ober and Ryan was the toughest call for me. Similar pitchers, but Ryan has more durability. Ragans and Keller aren’t all that close to me. Perhaps you could argue Keller is safer, but I struggle to find anything he does better than Ragans.

Fred Zinkie (Yahoo/Rotowire, @FredZinkieMLB): Yamamoto, Ranger, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans. For me, the easiest pick was Glasnow over Sale and the hardest pick was Ryan over Ober.

Eric Samulski (Rotoballer, @SamskiNYC): It would take way too long to break down WHY I’m answering how I am, but I’ll basically be looking for strikeouts and upside here. I’ll go: Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans. For me, Ragans and Keller was the easiest. Keller is a streamer at best right now and I can’t wait for Nick Pollack to see that it was a choice between these two.

Scott White (CBS Fantasy Sports, @CBSScottWhite): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans. The closest call was between Tanner Houck and Ranger Suarez. I’m genuinely confused why an ace like Cole Ragans is mentioned in the same breath as Mitch Keller, and I say that as one of the loudest Keller apologists.

Tim McLeod ( Prospect361, @RunTMcP361): Yamamoto, Suarez (either one), Sale, Ober, Ragans.

Patrick Davitt (BaseballHQ, @patrickdavitt): Imanaga, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Nick Pollack (Pitcher List, @PitcherList): Yamamoto (high four-seamers, PLEASE), Suárez and his improved changeup, Glasnow since he’s the #1 SP, Joe Ryan for his better fastball, and Ragans because you can’t spell Ragans without AGA (Aces Gonna Ace).

Phil Hertz (Baseball HQ, @prhz50): Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Keller

Michael A. Stein (Fantasy Judgment, @FantasyJudgment): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Bret Sayre (Baseball Prospectus, @BretSayreBP): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Matt Truss (Razzball, @MattTruss): Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans (Houck/Ranger is the closest call, and while pitching in Fenway is terrifying, Houck is a beast)

Jeff Boggis (Fantasy Football Empire, @JeffBoggis): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Frank Ammirante (The GameDayHQ, @FAmmiranteTFJ): Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans

Chris Clegg (Pitcher List, @RotoClegg): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans

Jeff Zimmerman (Fangraphs, @jeffwzimmerman): According to my valuation Imanaga (close), Houck (tie), Sale, Ryan (not close at all), Ragans (again, not close at all)

Glenn Colton (SiriusXM Fantasy, @GlennColton1): Sometimes keeping it simple is best. M.Keller v. Ragans is simple. Keller (below avg 8.8 swinging strike and a 4.63 xERA) v. Ragans (14.5 swinging strike and a 3.59 xERA). I just chose one example to illustrate it often is best not to overthink.

Dave Adler (Baseball HQ, @daveadler01): Looking at hit and strand rates to get a sense of likely regression; also expected ERA and K-BB% rates. So, my selections: Yamamoto (Imanaga has a 95% strand rate; expected ERA over ROS slightly higher than Yamamoto). Suarez by a very slight edge over Houck (projections over ROS virtually identical). Glasnow (two injury risks, but Glasnow expected ERA a bit better). Ryan (better K-BB% than Ober, better xERA). Ragans (big K-BB% difference, despite xERA being similar. Plus, I wouldn’t want Nick P to get on my case!)

Howard Bender (Fantasy Alarm, @RotoBuzzGuy): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan and Ragans

Anthony Aniano (Rotoballer, @AAnianoFantasy): Yamamoto..Imanaga will come back to the pack, I believe in the Lone Ranger, Glasnow is a no brainer, Joe Ryan and Ragans

Mike Podhorzer (Fangraphs, @MikePodhorzer): I’m solely looking at SIERA/xERA, along with K%/SwStk%/CSW%. Actual results are pretty meaningless to me at this point. Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans.

Matt Cederholm (Baseball HQ, @TheBigHurtHQ): Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ruan, Ragans

Erik Halterman (Rotowire, @erik_halterman): Imanaga (basically tied), Suarez (pretty close), Glasnow (kinda close), Ryan (not particularly close), Ragans (not close at all)

Corbin Young (Baseball HQ, Rotowire, @corbin_young21): Imanaga (elite control, elite four-seamer), Suarez, Glasnow, Ober, Ragans for strikeout upside, but Keller xERA have hinted at better numbers (no bias here)

Steve Gardner (USA TODAY Sports, @SteveAGardner): Yamamoto (no one can be as great as Imanaga has been in his first 9 starts), though Suarez has been close! I’ll take him over Houck and his injury history. Glasnow over Sale, but it’s a matter of who breaks first. Ober and Ryan are both four-letter pitchers to me, so I can’t pick one over the other. Ragans will be the man over the long haul by a good margin.

John Laghezza (The Athletic, @JohnLaghezza): Imanaga, Houck, Glasnow, Ober, Ragans

Rob Leibowitz (Rotoheaven, @rob_leibowitz): Yamamoto (expecting more of a correction/regression on Imanaga as we go along, but I like them both regardless), Houck over Suarez though again I still like them both. Blitheringly happy Houck is finally having a breakthrough after getting shares of him year after year. Glasnow over Sale. Ryan over Ober – His stuff is just less hittable. Not even close on Ragans vs Keller for me.

Scott Swanay (FantasyBaseballSherpa, @fantasy_sherpa): Going with the guys who I perceive to have higher ROS “upside” (technical term): Yamamoto (team context), Suarez (team context), Glasnow (toughest call), Ryan (can’t use team context for this one), Ragans

Vlad Sedler (FTN Fantasy, @rotogut): Imanaga, Houck, Glasnow, Ryan, Ragans (last one was the easiest). Put Sale up against almost anyone else and I would have said Sale.

Ryan Bloomfield (BaseballHQ, @RyanBHQ): Yamamoto (BaseballHQ’s monthly park factors peg Wrigley as a much more hitter-friendly track over the summer, much better run support from LA); Suarez (I’m a sucker for all those groundballs); Glasnow (better chance this lasts through the second half); Ryan (great name); and Ragans.

Adam Ronis (SiriusXM Fantasy, @AdamRonis): Yamamoto, Suarez, Glasnow, Ryan and Ragans

Jason Collette (Rotowire, @): Yamamoto, Houck, Glasnow, Ober, Ragans (still don’t like, him as much as Nick Pollack)

Todd Zola (Mastersball, @toddzola): Yamamoto, Houck, Sale, Ober, Ragans (but closer than most are indicating).

Each pairing was posted on social media with the following results:

Pitchers Tout% Poll%
Yoshinobu Yamamoto 79.4% 46.9%
Shota Imanaga 20.6% 53.1%
Tanner Houck 41.2% 38.2%
