Coming off a 2012 offseason where the starting pitching market was rather weak, the 2013 class looks strong at the top and should have some quality depth as well.
There will be a couple of pitchers, namely Cole Hamels and Zack Greinke, who will assuredly top $100M while fighting for $200M-plus.
In addition to the top of the class, there are plenty of pitchers upside pitchers like Anibal Sanchez and Kyle Lohse who have been great in spurts, but have yet to perform consistently at the major league level.
