Fantasy Baseball 2012: Who to Draft and Who to Avoid—Pitching
Stephen Dunn/Getty Images

Without a doubt, pitchers are often a troublesome part of a fantasy baseball manager's team.

Sometimes the chances you take don't work out, and the aces you draft don't live up to their expectations. There are however, what I would call sure-fire pitchers: Clayton Kershaw, Roy Halladay, Justin Verlander, Cliff Lee, Felix Hernandez, Tim Lincecum, CC Sabathia and Jered Weaver.

This article will focus on the pitchers you may have doubts about or just don't know whether or not they are worth the draft pick.

I will discuss six starting pitchers and six closers from both the American League and National League.

Three you should have no fear of drafting and three you may want to avoid.

As a reference I will be using Matthew Berry's Top 250, RotoChamp's ADP and statistics from Yahoo®.
