I’ll cover the entire 40 man roster and will split it between position players and pitchers (generally 20 or so guys on each list). Each week the list will change based on the past week’s performance - but also taking into account their performance year to date.
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.
The starters weren’t great this past week with a 6.65 ERA. That is due to bad starts by Tyler Skaggs, Andrew Heaney and Taylor Cole as well as a so-so start by Felix Pena. The bullpen, however, put up a 2.12 ERA and if you remove Jim Johnson’s bad Sunday it was a spectacular 0.77. Aside from Johnson, only Noe Ramirez and Hansel Robles gave up runs last week.
