July's Top 50 Fantasy Baseball Arms

Just like with the Top 100 Bats, the Angels are the focus of the pitchers list. Hector Santiago went 6-0 in July with a 1.78 ERA. In 35.1 IP, Santiago struck out 34 batters but walked 21 and allowed 26 hits. That led to a 1.33 WHIP and a 5.35 BB/9 - good for 3rd worst.  He owned the 15th worst SIERA and the 5th worst xFIP.

Robbie Ray (13.5), Jose Fernandez (13.35) and Lance McCullers (13.05) led the MLB in K/9.

Marcus Stroman's 66% GB rate led the league - Luis Perdomo (61%) and Mike Leake (60%) were next.

Leake lead the league in xFIP at 2.00 just ahead of Jose Fernandez' 2.06.   They were the only two starters under 2.59.  They were the only two starters with a SIERA under 2.50.

Despite a 6.23 ERA, Steven Wright went 4-0 in 6 July starts. Of the 10 starters to win 4+ games, Wright, Anthony DeSclafani (3.82) and Hisashi Iwakuma (3.77) were the only ones with an ERA above 3.00.
