Nine starting pitchers who might vastly outplay their draft position.
Snell has the potential to post a 25.0% strikeout rate, but the concern is his high walk rates. His second half of the season was spectacular as he posted a 3.49 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and a 3.2 BB/9. His success the second time around was due to a position change on the mound. If Snell can continue the success he had in the second half, he could be a top 30 pitcher in 2018.
Clevinger was just named as one of the Indian's rotation pieces, so expect his ADP to start to climb. With his elite strikeout rate and swinging strike rate last season, he has become one of the industry's favorite sleeper picks. His one major flaw is his knack for walking batters. With a 12.0% walk rate, Clevinger seems like he could be this year's Robbie Ray.
GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) - Robbie Ray sure looked like that tough, young 15-game winner in his first start of spring training. There was that familiar loud grunt every time the 26-year-old left-hander let go of the ball, echoing through the mostly empty seats of the Goodyear Ballpark. "You know he's ...

Three of the guys give you some names to avoid in 2018, including Robbie Ray, Lance McCullers, and David Price.
Earlier today we offered up three names to target among all the hurlers. Now it’s time for the yang to that yin. The other side, the underbelly, the equal and opposite reaction—however you want to view it, here are three names to consider avoiding in 2018.
Robbie Ray, Diamondbacks (Heath Capps)
My main issue with Ray is his ADP. In my opinion he represents the first of the question marks at the pitching position. With a few guys ahead of him (namely Bumgarner and Syndergaard) our primary concerns are health-related. With Ray that conversation turns to skill set. Among qualified starters last year, Ray allowed the most hard contact (40.4%!) in the league. Hitters also had a .267 BABIP against him, which means only seven pitchers had better luck on balls in play in 2017. Lastly, Ray’s 10.7% walk rate was the worst among qualified starters last year. Oh, I nearly forgot—Ray’s 84.5% strand rate was the second-best in the MLB last year, too. The league average LOB% for starters in 2017 was 72.1%...and Ray’s two previous marks were 68.7% and 73.8% in 2015-2016. For me, I don’t want to draft a guy as my SP1 with those risky parts of his profile. I’d prefer to grab a pitcher earlier or wait for a similarly-risky strikeout guy like Chris Archer a round later. Or wait another round for Aaron Nola. Why do I need to add Ray’s risk to my fake team
