On Wednesday night, MLB Now counted down the Top 10 starting pitchers in all of baseball.
Pitchers such as Shohei Ohtani, Max Fried, Julio Urias, Sandy Alcantara, Carlos Rodon, and Justin Verlander made the list.
Other pitchers on the list include Max Scherzer, Zack Wheeler, and Jacob deGrom.
But at the top was one distinguished ace, one who has won a Cy Young Award in recent years.
Milwaukee Brewers ace Corbin Burnes was ranked as the top starting pitcher in all of baseball.
MLB tweeted a graphic featuring MLB Now’s Top 10 list of starting pitchers with the veteran Burnes at the top.

Burnes is no stranger to being in the Top 10.
The 28-year-old won his Cy Young Award in 2021.
The right-hander is also a two-time All-Star.
In 2022, Burnes had yet another spectacular season, winning 12 games in 33 starts and posting a solid ERA of 2.94.
He, Brandon Woodruff, and Freddy Peralta headline what is one of the top starting rotations in all of baseball.
The three of them could be the key to the Brewers having success in 2023 as they look to bounce back from a disappointing finish in 2022.
Burnes is easily the ace of the staff and could help the Brewers bounce back in 2023.
But it’s no surprise for anybody to see the veteran ace in the Top 10, much less close to the top.
Perhaps the only surprise is that it isn’t Alcantara in the top spot.
Still, Burnes is very deserving of that spot and his place among the Top 10 starters in the game today.NEXT: William Contreras Shows Off His New Brewers Swag
