2018 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: Starting Pitchers Part 1 (1-25)

Last week was all about the outfielders in Dynasty Dugout. This week we switch away from offense and take a look at the players designed to limit it. You'll always have the truly elite pitchers that dominate each year, but there are a lot of pitchers who trend up and down each season. Trending Up Eduardo Rodriguez, Boston Red Sox Ever since Chris Sale arrived in Boston, Rodriguez has become a different pitcher. He’s working at a much quicker pace (similar to Sale) and really attacking hitters. Through 10 appearances…
