While the National League Central Division has long had a reputation of being the weak division, its pitching tells a different story.
While the division might not be filled with the likes of Justin Verlander or Clayton Kershaw, there is definitely a solid crop of pitchers that border on being unhittable.
In recent years, that classic pitching has helped to carry NL Central teams deep into the playoffs on multiple occasions.
Since 2000, at least one NL Central team has made it to the National League Championship Series in eight of the 12 prior seasons.
Four times during that stretch, the NL Central team has been to the World Series. Two times they won it (2006 and 2011 St. Louis Cardinals).
While it’s not like playing in the AL East, the Central still deserves its credit. In this article, we’re going to take a look at the NL Central’s most unhittable pitchers for each team.
