9. Rich Hill – Oakland Athletics
While Oakland’s ace Sonny Gray is in the midst of a horrible season, the A’s are lucky to have another surprising pitcher in Hill. Although Hill isn’t the flashiest of pitchers, there is no debating his success thus far. Hill sports an ERA of 2.18 while having a record of 7-3. His strikeout to walk ratio isn’t the best, 3:1, but Hill has held opponents to a .206 batting average, and has only allowed two home runs. Hill has also allowed less than three runs in 14 straight starts, more than anyone in baseball. In another season in which Oakland looks to be going nowhere fast, and with Gray being a major disappointment, Hill provides one positive for the lowly A’s.
