I chose to only rank the guys who were on the roster at the end of the season. Also, I didn’t include guys like Huston Street and Andrew Bailey who were pretty much non existent all season long and probably left most fans asking the question “are they still on the team?” The threshold for making this list was 8.1 innings, which was the amount Noe Ramirez pitched.
This ranking was a lot more difficult to put together than the position players since a lot of pitchers were just pretty so-so and not truly terrible. Even Nolasco wasn’t truly terrible when you look at the season as a whole. Also, Heaney is the only pitcher who I gave the Scioscia face to. I understand that is not entire fair coming back from TJ surgery - but he did give up 12 home runs and 17 runs in just 21.2 innings. Ouch. There is always next year!!
These rankings were compiled with the help of MLB stats, FanGraphs, misc. data, personal opinion, scribblings on Cam Bedrosian’s Five Guys wrappers, and some fairy dust I found hidden in Matt Shoemaker’s beard.
