Found April 26, 2013 on We Talk Fantasy Sports:
Starting pitching always seems to have a difficult transition from the minors to the Bigs, but Tony Cingrani and Jose Fernandez have made the jump this year and looked very good.  Chris Archer of the Rays and Danny Hultzen of the Mariners are my two favorites in the top 10 to be contributors at some point this season.  After the jump, Dan Straily has already made his season debut and was great for the Athletics before being sent back down.  He could easily be a contributor later in the season.  The way the back of the Mets rotation has struggled, Collin McHugh could be the first of these 20 pitchers to get a spot start.Anyone from your favorite MLB team on this list?  Do you want them called up and pitching for your ballclub?  Let us know in the comment section!NAMETEAMMLBWLERAGSCGSHOIPHRERHRBBSOWHIPFantasy PointsBrad HandNEWMIA212.0050027.01976113291.1982.5Billy BucknerSLCLAA302.2840023.2216609241.2782.4Brad MillsRRTEX302.5240025.02210714181.0482.0Drew PomeranzCOLCOL302.8240022.1187717271.1280.7Freddy GarciaNORBAL302.8140025.2258822161.0580.4Chris ArcherDURTB315.0450025.0291614310281.5680.0Danny HultzenTACSEA312.7840022.2179716251.0179.9John GastMEMSTL200.0040024.2180006220.9779.4Chad ReinekeLOUCIN300.4220021.2161105150.9778.9Chris DwyerOMAKC312.5540024.2197739151.1478.9 table.tableizer-table { border: 1px solid #CCC; font-family: ; font-size: 12px; } .tableizer-table td { padding: 4px; margin: 3px; border: 1px solid #ccc; } .tableizer-table th { background-color: #104E8B; color: #FFF; font-weight: bold; } NAMETEAMMLBWLERAGSCGSHOIPHRERHRBBSOWHIPFantasy PointsMichael WachaMEMSTL301.9640023.0146529121.0077.0Vidal NunoSWBNYY201.5440023.1134422260.6475.2Yusmeiro PetitFRESF225.8650027.235181887371.5274.9Dan StrailySACOAK300.9630018.2115206200.9174.4Omar PovedaGWNATL201.7540025.2125526180.7074.4Terry DoylePAWBOS201.4840024.11044110190.8273.7Will SmithOMAKC212.4540022.0226616311.2773.5Collin McHughLASNYM201.9340023.1288504181.3770.2Tyler LyonsMEMSTL213.2840024.22610914211.2269.9Jarred CosartOKCHOU202.8640022.0158719231.0968.5How are Fantasy Points calculated?
