We looked at the ZiPS projections for the batters already so here are the pitchers.
No surprise to see Garza at the top of the starting pitchers. Also no surprise to see Marshall as not just better than Marmol, but quite a bit better. In fact, Sean Marshall is projected to be better than Mariano Rivera is. Factor in the league and Rivera will be more valuable, but still. After those two, you’re below replacement. There’s a huge drop after Marmol.
The one projection that stands out to me is Andrew Cashner. ZiPS projects 11 games started and 31 overall appearances so most of those innings are as a starter. I have no idea how ZiPS can be projecting Cashner to be so good. It makes no sense to me. Projections are based on past performance, and even if you include minor league performance, I don’t see how you get that projection. Last year, ZiPS projected a 3.84 ERA and 4.11 FIP. He only threw a few innings last year, but is somehow a slightly improved pitcher. Doesn’t make sense.
