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.
Listed are all Major League Baseball players with 106 or more wins, the current cutoff for the top 500 (includes ties for the top 500, whenever applicable). Players in bold face are active as of the 2008 Major League Baseball season (including free agents), with the number in parentheses designating the number of wins they have earned during that season.
