(1) Jered Weaver retains the current top spot on the Factor12 Top12 in 2012 with a 32.589 rating.  The Los Angeles Angels right-hander continues to pitch superb baseball compiling a 1.60 ERA and 0.79 WHIP over his first seven starts of the season.

 

(2) Jake Peavy has regained his 2007 NL Cy Young form.  The Chicago White Sox hurler has pitched outstanding baseball over his first seven starts of the season.  Peavy has thrown 52.33 IP/ 35H/ 11ER/ 7BB/ 44K while posting a 1.89 ERA and 0.80 WHIP.

 

(3) Gio Gonzalez has baffled opposing hitters in his last five starts.  The left-hander has thrown 33 IP/ 13H/ 3ER/ 10BB/ 35K.  Gonzalez would rank higher on the list if not for a poor first start against the Chicago Cubs.

 

(4) Stephen Strasburg continues to dominate on the mound.  The 23 year-old right-hander has pitched 44IP allowing two home runs, walking ten batters, and striking out an NL-leading fifty-one.  The Washington Nationals ace trails the top spot by just .989 points.

 

(5) Felix Hernandez continued his dominating start to the 2012 season pitching 8IP/ 1H 0ER/ 2BB/ 9K against the Minnesota Twins.  The 2010 AL Cy Young Award winner holds a 31.195 F12 Rating.
