2022 Pitcher Power Rankings – End of June

I may have been MIA for writing the May version of this exercise, but with All-Star teams soon to be announced, now is a good time to revisit this season’s pitcher power rankings. Just a reminder as to how this works, the power rankings are the result of a formula where I do not put my thumb on the scale. Pitchers are rated on a scoring scale that tops out at 100. The ratings are based upon only performance in the current season and are not meant to be predictive. Scores are also volume-based, so two pitchers with identical numbers and different innings totals will have different scores. Statistics used are the aforementioned innings pitched, park-adjusted ERA and ERA estimates, and CSW% (I will not specify the full formula).

Please note, these rankings pit starting pitchers and relievers against each other. Additionally, all statistics are before the start of play on July 1. My formalities and notes out of the way, I will stall no longer. The top 30 pitchers of 2022 through the end of June:
