  • Final 2020 Power Rankings: Starting Pitcher

    POSITION POWER RANKINGS D1 Baseball Staff - April 30, 2020

    Before the season started, we unveiled power rankings for every position, following the same guiding principle we used to form our Preseason All-America Teams: If we were building a team to win the 2020 national title, which players would we choose? Even though the season was canceled prematurely and there will be no national champion, we’ll stick to that philosophy with our final updated power rankings.
    These are NOT professional prospect lists, though they do take pure talent into consideration. We considered past performance and offensive statistics, but we also try to keep the numbers in context, because some leagues or ballparks are more offensive than others, and some leagues simply have more talent than others — so all stat lines are not created equal. And because the season was only four weeks long and nonconference strength of schedules vary so dramatically, we tried not to overreact to 2020 statistics. We made some adjustments based on performance this season, but we also gave some latitude to players who proved themselves over previous seasons and got off to slow starts this spring. We also considered defensive ability (especially at premium positions), makeup and reports of development in the preseason and the shortened spring season.

    Finally, remember that there are 301 Division I teams, and we’re ranking the top 10 percent of starting players at each position. Many good players in the remaining 90 percent just didn’t make the cut.
    With all that said, here’s a look at the top 150 starting pitchers in college baseball. All five members of our preseason All-America first team remain in the top six of these rankings, but there’s a little shuffling of the order, with Texas A&M’s Asa Lacy moving up from No. 3 to No. 1. Duke’s Bryce Jarvis, a third-team preseason All-American, moves up into the top five. And there’s plenty of shuffling throughout the list. Find out who made the cut.
