2024 MLB Pitching Prospect Betting: Top Four Right and Left Handed Pitchers

For Major League Baseball teams, success starts on the mound. For sure, to have success in MLB, you must score runs. But even if you’ve got the best lineup in baseball, if you can’t stop the other team from scoring, you’re going to lose more than you win.

With that in mind, it’s time to check out MLB props for the top four left handed and top four right handed MLB pitching prospects heading into the 2024 Major League Baseball Season.

Top Four Left Handed MLB Pitching Prospects

Kyle Harrison | San Francisco Giants

The Giants called up Harrison last season. He did okay. After throwing 34 innings, Harrison produced a 4.15 ERA, struck out 35, and landed a 1.15 WHIP.

All of those are decent stats. The G-Men feel comfortable enough to make Harrison their third starter behind Logan Webb and Jordan Hicks. Any improvement could land Harrison the second spot behind Webb.

Ricky Tiedemann | Toronto Blue Jays

It will be tough for Tiedemann to break into Toronto’s starting rotation. Kevin Gausman is one of the top starters in the American League. Fifth in the rotation Alek Monah could have a bounce back season.

Still, Tiedemann is played great for the Bison Bulls so far. He’s averaging 13.5 strikeouts per 9 innings, which is over a strikeout per inning. The Blue Jays could give Tiedemann some run in the bullpen this season.

DL Hall | Milwaukee Brewers

The Brew Crew used Hall sparingly in 2023. DL made 18 appearances and threw in 19.1 innings. He ended up with a 3.26 ERA, struck out 23, and scored a 1.19 WHIP.

This season, Milwaukee plans on using Hall as their fourth starter. If he can prove he can go more than 5 innings, Hall will have a long, illustrious MLB career.

Robby Snelling | San Diego Padres

As the San Antonio Missions ace, Snelling has dominated. Robby threw 98 innings and produced a fantastic 1.83 ERA. He strikes out 10.59 batters every 9 innings.

The 3.22 walks per 9 innings is decent. The 1.13 WHIP is great. The Friars have a solid BP and a good rotation. So Snelling may have a to wait a couple of months. But San Diego must be salivating at the prospect of this guy tossing at pitcher friendly Petco Park.

Top Four Right Handed MLB Pitching Prospects

Paul Skenes | Pittsburgh Pirates

The best pitcher in college last season is already dominating for the Altoona Curve. The LSU star is striking out 15 batters every 9 innings. His WHIP is a fantastic 1.16.

The problem for the Pirates is do they rush Skenes to MLB where, no doubt, he will struggle for some time? Or do they play it safe and give Skenes more time to develop? We’ll know the answer about halfway through the season.

Pittsburgh Pirates
Right Handed Top Pick: Paul Skenes | Odds for MLB MyBookie Betting Lines for the Tournament


Andrew Painter | Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies should call up Painter today. Throwing for the Reading Fightin Phils, Painter produced a 1.486 ERA, .881 WHIP, 2.06 walks per 9 innings, and struck out 13.78 per 9.

The man can throw for sure. Philadelphia could use Painter either in spot duty to set up their top relievers or give him a couple of starts in anticipation of making the playoffs.

Philadelphia Phillies
Right Handed Top Pick: Andrew Painter | Odds for MLB MyBookie Betting Lines for the Tournament


Jackson Jobe | Detroit Tigers

Jobe has some talent, but he’s going to have to improve upon his 3.6 ERA with the West Michigan Whitecaps. Jobe could, for sure, improve the ERA because he’s produced it after 40 innings.

40 innings is nothing. Wait until he throws at least 100 before we start saying the man isn’t worth an MLB start. Detroit could use Jobe. Ace Tarik Skubal is one of the best starters in the AL, but Kenta Maeda is 35 and third in the rotation Jack Flaherty had a 4.99 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP last season.

Detroit Tigers
Right Handed Top Pick: Jackson Jobe | Odds for MLB MyBookie Betting Lines for the Tournament


Cade Horton | Chicago Cubs

If Tennessee Smokies pitcher Cade Horton keeps it up, the Cubs will be making the call. Horton’s ERA is 1.33. Sure, he’s only thrown 30 innings for the Smokies, which is why the wording is if Cade keeps it up.

The Cubs boast a pair of aces in Japanese League star Shota Imanaga and Justin Steele. But after those two, Kyle Hendricks and James Tallion didn’t have great seasons. So Horton could be a nice addition.

Right Handed Top Pick: Cade Horton | Odds for MLB MyBookie Betting Lines for the Tournament

Brown and Miller: Top MLB Pitching Prospects For 2023

Previous Betting News

Pitchers and catchers will be reporting to Major League Baseball spring training camps in about three weeks. No pitcher has won Rookie of Year in the National League since Milwaukee’s Devin Williams in 2020 or in the American League since the Angels’ Shohei Ohtani in 2018 and of course he’s also a full-time hitter. The last full-time pitcher in the AL to be named top rookie was Detroit’s Michael Fulmer in 2016. Here’s a look at one pitcher in each league who is a top ROY candidate along with their MLB odds.

Major League Baseball Spring Training Camps for Brown and Miller

Hunter Brown, Astros (+700)

Brown was a fifth-round pick in the 2019 draft by Houston out of Wayne State. Brown’s only college scholarship offer as a suburban Detroit high schooler came from nearby Wayne State and he didn’t become a full-time starter at the NCAA Division II school until his junior season. He dominated and went in the fifth round of the 2019 draft, matching Anthony Bass as the Warriors’ highest pick ever.

Brown pitched well at every level of the minors for Houston after his selection. In 2021 between the Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks and the Triple-A Sugar Land Skeeters, he struck out 131 in 100 1⁄3 innings, holding down a 1.415 WHIP and going 6-5 with a 4.04 ERA. Last season with Sugar Land, Brown went 9-4 with a 2.55 ERA and 134 strikeouts in 106 innings — 11.4 per nine innings. He lowered his WHIP to 1.085, holding the opposition to a .186/.275/.265 slashline.

The 24-year-old right-hander made his big-league debut last September, joining Blue Jays reliever Bass as the only players from Wayne State to appear in the majors since 1990.

Brown made a good first impression while working primarily out of the bullpen, striking out 22 batters in 20 innings, going 2-0 with a 0.89 ERA.  He then backed that up with 3.2 innings during the postseason in which he didn’t allow a run. The only postseason series he did not pitch in was the World Series against the Philadelphia Phillies.

Brown’s mid-to-upper-90s fastball led the way, though he also chucked his swing-and-miss curveball more than 30 percent of the time and deployed his slider often enough to keep batters honest. His best pitch is that power curveball that sits in the low 80s and seems to drop off the table coming out of his high three-quarters arm slot. The big question with Brown is whether or not he has the command to start.

Bobby Miller, Dodgers (+3500)

Questions about his delivery and reliever risk made Miller available to the Dodgers with the 29th overall pick in the 2020 Draft, and he has looked like a steal since signing for $2,197,500. The 6-foot-5 right-hander sits at 97-98 mph for innings at a time and can reach 100 mph with his riding four-seam fastball and he also can mix in a heavy 93-96 mph two-seamer. His two-plane slider and fading, sinking changeup operate in the mid-80s and grade as well above-average pitches.

Miller’s fastball might be his fourth-best pitch, sitting in the upper-90s with decent ride, and he’ll occasionally show you a power sinker wrinkle as well. The command and strike-throwing with the pitch still aren’t quite sharp enough though and that can lead to a few too many walks or just general inefficiency.

Miller is coming off a season in which he logged 145 strikeouts in 112.1 innings between Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City. He’s so sought after that the Pittsburgh Pirates were rumored to want Miller as the headline piece in a trade for outfielder Bryan Reynolds. . A career .281 hitter, Reynolds backed up a strong 2021 campaign by finishing ranked amongst the top 10 National League outfielders in hits, home runs, average, slugging and on-base plus slugging across 145 games in 2022.

Miller is expected to make his big-league debut at some point this season, and we’ll get to see him with the major-league team in spring training starting next month. Los Angeles’ rotation will be led by Clayton Kershaw and Julio Urias this season. Tony Gonsolin, Dustin May, and Noah Syndergaard are expected to fill out the remaining 3 spots in the starting rotation. But Kershaw and Syndergaard both have injury histories so it wouldn’t be surprising to see Miller get his chance this year. He is ranked as the Dodgers’ No. 2 overall prospect in 2022, trailing only catcher Diego Cartaya.
