Top 20 Left-Handed Pitchers with the 
Most Wins in Baseball History

By Vin Getz,, May 13, 2014

These are the 20 left-handed pitchers with the most wins ever – a list that
starts off with some of the greatest pitchers of all time (regardless of handedness)
and finishes off with some respectable, though non-Hall of Famer, dudes, if you will.

Out of the 24 pitchers that have reached the 300-win plateau, only six were
lefties: all-time lefty leader and sixth all-time, 363-win, Warren Spahn,
long-time Philadelphia Phillies’ great Steve Carlton, Eddie Plank,
recent Hall of Famer Tom Glavine, Hall of Famer-to-be Randy Johnson
and the aptly-named Lefty Grove.
