James Shields: D
Stats: 7-9, 4.87 ERA, 1.37 WHIP, 109 Ks, .282 BAA
Shields is supposed to be the ace of the staff but has been struggling mightily. He has pitched (1-5, 5.59) incredibly bad at home.
Matt Garza: C+
Stats: 10-5, 4.05 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, 86 Ks, .253 BAA
Garza is having an inconsistent year. He started off scorching in April but his ERA was 6.83 in May.
Jeff Niemann: A
Stats: 7-2, 2.77 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, 84 Ks, .220 BAA
Niemann is the most underrated player in baseball. He wasn't an All-Star or even considered an All-Star snub despite his tiny ERA and WHIP.
David Price: A+
Stats: 12-4, 2.42 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, 100 Ks, .223 BAA
Price has been the best pitcher in the American League so far, leading two of the three pitching triple crown categories.
Wade Davis: D
Stats: 6-9, 4.69 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 62 Ks, .263 BAA
Everybody's favorite preseason Rookie of the Year choice has struggled so far. His WHIP is extremely high, he's been unreliable, and he doesn't last long into ballgames.
