TEXTexas Rangers
2016 Record: 78-54
#35 Cole Hamels
Aug 26: Hamels (14-4) struck out eight and scattered two hits over eight scoreless innings in a dominant performance against Cleveland on Thursday. He's now just 0.01 behind Danny Duffy for the American League ERA lead thanks to a run of brilliant work since the All-Star break. Hamels' outstanding second-half run (a 5-2 record, 1.59 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 58:14 K:BB in 56.2 innings) has put him squarely into the running for the AL Cy Young Award. His overall WHIP's still rather uninspiring -- at 1.23, it's the worst among the AL's top 15 in ERA -- mostly due to an elevated walk rate. But on the whole, it's hard for the Rangers or fantasy owners to quibble with the stats Hamels has given them in this season of high-powered offense.
