MLB.com announced their latest power rankings for starting pitchers for the All-Star Game. Did you vote by the way? Some Miami Marlins hitters are sadly not receiving enough votes at the moment. It's interesting to see how MLB rates different starting pitchers, especially a certain young Miami Marlin.

The Miami Marlins are represented on the starting pitcher power rankings.

At number one on the list is Tampa Bay Rays ace Shane McLanahan. Shane has been worth an impressive 3.1 WAR this season, while producing a 2.23 ERA/3.65 FIP with 9.7 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9. I notice that he is actually overachieving based on his FIP. His walks are up from last season (2.1) and his strikeouts are down (10.5 last season). I actually expect him to drop on the list prior to the ASG.

Coming in second is another AL SP. This time it's Houston's Framber Valdez. Valdez matches Shane in WAR with 3.1. He also has a 2,49 ERA/2.84 FIP, with 9.4 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9. He should be ahead of Shane in the next list. Third on the list (first in the NL) is Arizona's Zac Gallen. Gallen has a 2.3 WAR. He also has a 3.02 ERA/2.73 FIP, with 9.3 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9. The former Miami Marlins prospect looks good right now.

Fourth on the list is New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. Cole is worth a 3.2 WAR and has a 2.78 ERA/3.39 FIP, with 9.8 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9. He should be number one in the AL based on WAR. Fifth on the list is yet another AL starting pitcher: Nathan Eovaldi of the Texas Rangers. Eovaldi has a 2.5 WAR, with a 2.82 ERA/3.08 FIP, with 8.6 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9. He should make the ASG, but not start for the AL.

Sixth on the list is yet another AL pitcher. The Los Angeles Angels' Shohei Ohtani. He's worth a 2.7 pitching WAR (6.3 overall). The two-way player has a 3.02 ERA/3.75 FIP, with 12.0 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9. The FIP is concerning and he should be lower on the list. Seventh (second in the NL), is Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw. Kershaw is worth 3.1 WAR. He also has a 2.55 ERA/3.52 FIP, with 9.9 K/9 and 2.3 BB/9. He's overachieving a bit, but he's still good.

Eighth on the list (third in the NL), is Atlanta's ace Spencer Strider. Strider is worth 1.6 WAR. He also has a disappointing 3.73 ERA/3.11 FIP, with 14.3 K/9 and 3.1 BB/9. The ERA and WAR should keep him off of the list. Miami Marlins starting pitcher Eury Pérez is ninth on the list and fourth in the NL. Eury is worth 2.2 WAR, and has a 1.34 ERA/3.04 FIP, with 10.3 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9. Eury should definitely be ahead of both Strider and Kershaw. He shouldn't pitch in the ASG to protect his arm however.
