The Low Investment Mound Aces (LIMA) Plan is a way for you to target high skills pitchers without paying high skills prices, thereby allowing you to spend more of your money on hitters.

There are variations of the LIMA model, but the basic approach is to target pitchers who are projected to meet the following thresholds:

  • Command ratio (K/BB) of 2.0 or better;
  • Dominance rate (K/9) of 6.0 or better; and
  • Expected home run (HR/9) rate of 1.0 or less.

LIMA values can vary based on your league context.  We encourage you to use our Custom Draft Guides to see customized LIMA values for your league.

Here are the top LIMA targets in a 5x5 mixed league...
