Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers (17-5, 2.45 ERA)
The 23-year-old lefty has won four straight decisions, allowing just two earned runs over that span. Batters are hitting .211 against him. He has an incredible strikeout-to-walk ratio of 212:50.
Jeremy Hellickson, Tampa Bay Rays (11-10, 3.01 ERA)
Hellickson has given up four earned runs over his last three starts covering 21 innings, but the Rays were shut out in his past two outings. Batters are hitting .218 against him. He’s yielded more than two earned runs just once in his past six starts.
Trevor Cahill, Oakland Athletics (9-13, 4.26 ERA)
He’s lost four straight decisions, and just gave up five runs in 5 1/3 innings at Cleveland last Tuesday. In six August starts, the 23-year-old right-hander posted a 7.15 ERA.
Kevin Slowey, Minnesota Twins (0-3, 5.91 ERA)
The converted reliever has lost all three of his starts, allowing 13 runs and 22 hits over 17 1/3 innings. Slowey has a WHIP of 1.44 and gets very few batters to swing and miss.
