Fantasy Baseball 2012: Top 30 Starting Pitchers from This Point Forward

Detroit's Justin Verlander, a consensus top-five pitcher in fantasy circles, boasts an 8-4 record, 2.52 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 113 strikeouts through 16 starts.

The following countdown touts my picks for the top 30 starting pitchers in fantasy—from this point forward.

To clarify, this listing is not necessarily a celebration of those who posted stellar stats from April 4-June 28 or those who were prominently featured in the preseason rankings.

It's simply a compilation of the best assets moving forward. It's also a rundown of the 30 most appealing starting pitchers (plus Tim Lincecum) to pursue in trades for the stretch run.

When originally crafting the list, I was surprised that neither Dan Haren, Ian Kennedy nor Jon Lester made the final cut. But in a season where the real depth at starting pitcher runs almost 65 deep, hard choices had to be made somewhere.

Do the math: There are 30 MLB teams and only 30 available slots, with no guarantee that every club would garner representation. Ouch.

Enjoy the show!
