Okay today we take a look at the top 5 NL Staring Pitchers as of Monday morning June 17th. The stats reflected are through June 16th.
Coming in at #5 Mike Minor
Mike Minor - 8W, 2.68 ERA, 0.97 Ratio, 85K in 90 1/3 IP
For those of you like my buddy Ed who would read the off-season NL King article talking about 2013 would be the year Minor would break through you have been rewarded.
Coming in at #4 Cliff Lee
Cliff Lee - 8W, 2.55 ERA, 0.98 Ratio, 89K in 102 1/3 IP
Has been his usual money in the bank just have to hope he doesn't get traded to the AL come July.
Coming in at #3 Shelby Miller
Shelby Miller - 7W, 2.21 ERA, 0.97 Ratio, 91K in 81 1/3 IP
Went from being very on the fence at the end of Spring Training on making the rotation to most likely an All-Star. Should be dominant for years to come.
Coming in at #2 Matt Harvey
Matt Harvey - 5W, 2.04 ERA, 0.91 Ratio, 102K in 97 IP
If Harvey was on a decent team he would have 10 Wins. Come September I can see the Mets shutting him down as those IP add up.
And at #1 we have, drum roll please
#1 is Clayton Kershaw
Clayton Kershaw - 5W, 1.85 ERA, 0.97 Ratio, 104K in 107 1/3 IP
Lets face it he is the best starter in all of MLB in real life and in fantasy.
