Today's the day! Pitchers and catchers will begin to report to camps, officially kicking off the start of the baseball year. That means it's time to start figuring out who you're going to take for your fantasy squads in 2020; and we here at Rotoworld have everything you need to prep for and dominate your drafts with our all-new 2020 Fantasy Baseball Draft Guide.

Our guide boasts a plethora of content, from projections and rankings to tiers, mock drafts and exclusive expert columns.

Speaking of tiers, today we'll be proving to you the value of what our guide offers with a look at our starting pitcher tiers, in-particular our fourth tier.

Take a look:



Trevor Bauer (R) - CIN
Mike Soroka (R) - ATL
Stephen Strasburg (R) - WSH
Luis Severino (R) - NYY
Lucas Giolito (R) - CWS

Zack Greinke (R) - HOU
Patrick Corbin (L) - WSH
Luis Castillo (R) - CIN
Carlos Carrasco (R) - CLE
Noah Syndergaard (R) - NYM

Soroka doesn’t miss bats at the level of an elite fantasy pitcher, but he put up a stingy 2.68 ERA over 29 starts last year. Strasburg deservedly netted a seven-year, $245 million contract from the Nationals this winter following a tremendous 2019 postseason run that culminated in a World Series title, but he has a good-not-great 3.48 ERA over his last 55 regular-season starts and has topped 200 innings just twice in his career. Maybe his October dominance will carry over.
