Undervalued Pitchers

Here are some pitchers I feel are being undervalued this year.

  • Javier Vazquez.  By now the annual Vazquez recs must be getting tiresome.  But he's moved back to the NL and is good for 200 Ks, double digit wins, and a solid WHIP at the least.
  • Rich Harden.  He's worth quite a bit by himself if he manages 135 IP.  Add in replacement level pitching while he's out and you'll get a ton out of the roster spot.  Joba Chamberlain, Max Scherzer, and Randy Johnson fit this mold as well and come recommended.
  • Jonathan Broxton.  The closing job is all his and he should strike out 85+ with 35+ saves and strong ratios.
  • Yovani Gallardo.  Very solid as a 10th round pick, and I'm only projecting 180 IP.
  • Matt Cain.  Sooner or later the wins will come.  The Ks and ERA are already here.
  • Ted Lilly.  MDC has him as a 17th round pick, but he's the same old reliable Lilly.  Goes earlier in ESPN leagues.
  • Brett Myers.  Goes especially late in ESPN leagues.
  • Derek Lowe.  Too boring for my fantasy owners.
  • Kenshin Kawakami.  Fear of the unknown?  The Braves' Japanese import is barely being drafted.  He should help in WHIP at the very least.
  • Zack Greinke.  A bargain in Yahoo leagues, less so in ESPN based on an ADP comparison.
  • Jered Weaver.
  • Ricky Nolasco.  Happy to be on this bandwagon.
  • Heath Bell.
  • Kevin Slowey.  Not every day you find a 1.21 WHIP in the 16th round.
  • Aaron Harang.
  • Joey Devine.
  • Matt Capps.
  • Gil Meche.  Ignored for being a Royal.
  • Scott Baker.
  • Chad Qualls.
  • Andy Sonnanstine.
  • Frank Francisco.
  • Joel Hanrahan.
