Felix Hernandez – Hot
King Felix was electric this week, earning a win in his lone start after hurling 8 shutout frames against the Texas Rangers. Hernandez struck out 8, walked 4 and allowed 3 hits. He limited the opposition to 0.88 walks/hits per inning.
2015 has been a very strange season for Felix Hernandez. The 29-year-old right-hander is tied for the league lead with 17 wins, but his 3.49 ERA is his worst since 2007. He is still a top tier pitcher, but he has not been quite as dominant this season. I still believe Hernandez will win another Cy Young Award in the near future, but it’s safe to say he will not be among the top contenders this year.
