This award belongs to Felix Hernandez, and no one else. Not only is Felix the best pitcher on the Seattle Mariners; he is the arguable the best pitcher in the game of baseball. Fantasy owners who drafted The King at the beginning of the year, are most likely tops in their leagues pitching categories.
Felix is currently ranked #6 overall out of all players. And it doesn’t end there. Felix pitches today in game 162 for the Mariners. With the playoffs on the line, you can expect straight dominance from Seattle’s ace.
The King has statistics that could land him his second Cy Young Award. He currently holds a 2.18 ERA, and insanely low 0.97 WHIP. He has a career high 241 strike outs, and that will improve before the end of today. His 14 wins are a sad sign of terrible run support, but that all disappears when he wins game 162.
