The Best Current MLB Pitchers

List Criteria: Only active pitchers. No minor leaguers or recently retired players

Who are the best current MLB pitchers? With the 2014 season in full swing, some clear talent is emerging. Who will be the most dominant pitcher of the entire season? That remains to be seen, but for now, these pitchers are among the best. They are also among the best current baseball players, and several were considered to be the most likely 2013 MLB All-Stars. Vote for the current Major League Baseball pitchers you believe are the best, vote down any who aren't performing well and feel free to add new potential breakout stars, too. You can also re-rank this list in any order you choose.

 Any list of the best current MLB pitchers should include Justin Verlander. The Detroit Tigers pitcher is a force to be reckoned with on the mound, and Detroit sure knows it: In 2013, the Tigers made the MVP Verlander the highest paid pitcher in the MLB, agreeing to a five-year contract extension that keeps Verlander in Detroit through at least 2019. All total, the contract deal was worth upwards of $180 million.

 Will Verlander live up to that kind of money? He's been outstanding for several years now, so probably.That's what this list is about: The MLB pitchers that you think are worth the big bucks, because they are, quite simply, the best. Will any of the current MLB pitchers on this list ultimately wind up on a list of the greatest baseball players of all time? Possibly so. It takes time, but in the interim, feel free to head over to the list and cast your votes!
