Ryu Improves to 6th Most Valuable of 205 Pitchers

The top five pitchers on the new look www.valueaddbaseball.com database above will stay the same when the ratings are updated Saturday (see all 205 pitchers to make at least five starts below). Reader feedback urged us to move the Value Add rating just right of the player and team, and then follow that with the pitcher's innings pitched in starts, earned runs allowed, total starts and how many of those were victories, and the average score in their games so far. 

The database includes a number of other measurements for each game such as the defense, relief pitching and ball park impact. 

The biggest change in the actual rankings is Hyun-Jin Ryu of the Dodgers, who surged to No. 6 after out-dueling the Mets Matt Harvey (dropped from 8th to 17th) and see Bartolo Colon collapse from No. 6 to No. 21.
