2024 Free Agent Starting Pitching

2023 Free Agent Starting Pitchers

The offseason is here, and it has been slow moving on the free agent front as no one has signed, but entering this time of the season, it appears that more than half of the teams will be going after pitching. There are a lot of good names available entering the offseason, so here we will rank them; you can follow this along as it will be updated on if they sign and what the deal is. Shohei Ohtani is not included in the list because he cannot pitch in 2024.
