Top Fantasy Baseball Pitchers For 2014

Clayton KershawAs you probably know by this point in your fantasy baseball career, getting a strong starting pitching staff is pretty important. Fortunately, this year, we have a solid group of strong starting pitchers out there, but there are absolutely quite a few who stand out as being the top fantasy baseball pitchers for 2014.

Below we are going to take a look at a few pitchers who are likely to end up as the top fantasy scorers at the years end, and more likely than not, there's a good chance that most of these players end up going pretty high in your fantasy drafts as well.

These are also the fantasy baseball pitchers that you should keep on eye on regularly when choosing a daily fantasy baseball lineup and playing for real money at a site like in 2014.

Clayton Kershaw (Los Angeles Dodgers)

Who else? You just have to start out with Kershaw - you'd be crazy not to. He's won two Cy Young Awards in three years. He posted a 1.82 ERA last year, and led the league in strikeouts, WHIP, and also threw 236 innings. Worried about him being tired? Well…don't be - because this guy is a total stud and he's just 26 as well. Kershaw is scary good, and he's going to be the backbone of the Dodgers throughout this season.

Yu Darvish (Texas Rangers)

I've watched this guy pitch quite a bit, and he's just really, really good. He not only led the AL in strikeouts last year with 277 in 209.2 innings pitched, but he also has done well with avoiding walks also. While he ended up with just 13 wins this past year, you can't exactly blame him for that. Darvish is going to be a top five pitcher this year, as he should be.

Felix Hernandez (Seattle Mariners)

Hernandez can deal some nasty nasty stuff. He won the Cy Young back in 2010 with a 2.27 ERA, and while his ERA has gone up to 3.04, he's still been on fire, and has been on top of his game. Last year he had the best year of his career in terms of strikeout rate and walk rate. Hernandez has everything, and he'd be an incredible piece for your fantasy baseball team in 2014.

Adam Wainwright (St. Louis Cardinals)

I almost wanted to add him to this list just because of last year's postseason. The guy was an absolute stud, and he did it during the regular season as well. He's not a massive strikeout guy, but he's going to get you consistent strong performances with a low number of walks.

Others to Consider

  • Max Scherzer (Tigers) - If you had him last year…congrats! If you get him this year…congrats again, because he's poised for a huge year.
  • Cliff Lee (Phillies) - Lee did pretty much everything well last year, and he had the best strikeout to walk ratio in all of baseball. He'll be back to throw some nasty stuff again this year.
  • Stephen Strasburg (Nationals) - If he can stay healthy, then he's a Cy Young contender. I actually think that this could very well be the year, and you probably won't have to pay with an insanely high draft pick, unless someone in your league just loves him.
  • Jose Fernandez (Marlins) - The young Cuban phenom boasted a sick ERA in 2013. Look for more of this in 2014.
  • Chris Sale (White Sox) - He struggled in the W/L column last season, but don’t be fooled, Sale has game.
