This is a list of the top 500 Major League Baseball winningest pitchers. In the sport of baseball, a win is a statistic credited to the pitcher for the winning team who was in the game when his team last took the lead. The main exception is that a starting pitcher must complete five innings to earn a win; if this does not happen, the official scorer awards the win based on guidelines set forth in the official rules.

Cy Young holds the Major League Baseball win record with 511. Second is Walter Johnson with 417. Young and Johnson are the only players to earn 400 or more wins.

ListEdit

Listed are all Major League Baseball players with 111 or more wins, the current cutoff for the top 500 (includes ties for the top 500, whenever applicable).

The stats are updated as of April 28, 2019.

Current players are in BOLD, and a * means they are in the Hall of Fame.
