AL Cy Young Award Rankings: Justin Verlander Stumbles While Chris Sale Charges

Chris Sale is the American League's hottest pitcher.

No pitcher in the American League is hotter than Chicago White Sox lefty Chris Sale right now.

In early May, the White Sox suddenly got concerned about Sale's elbow and shifted him to their bullpen. That experiment didn't last for long, however, and Sale has since proven that he's just fine in the starting rotation, thank you very much.

In five starts since May 12, Sale is 4-1 with a 1.87 ERA and 39 strikeouts in 33.2 innings pitched. His last two starts have featured a 15-strikeout performance and a complete game.

Yeah, he's been good. He's been so good, in fact, that he is now very high in the running for the AL Cy Young award.

Here's a look at this week's rankings.

Note: Feel free to check out last week's rankings.
