Tonight, Felix Hernandez will make his 27th start of the season, and opens the game against Kanssas City with a 12-5 record and a 2.73 earned run average.
How's he rank in the Cy Young Award derby?
Well, he's second in ERA to KC's Zack Greinke's 2.43.
Felix is tied with five players with 12 wins - behind C.C. Sabathia's 15, Justin Verlander and Josh Beckett (14) and Scott Feldman and Roy Halladay (13).
When you get to innings pitched, Sabathia leads the league with 185, followed by Halladay (184), Greinke (181), Verlander (181), James Shields (179) and then Felix (178).
Felix is fourth in striketouts with 173, trailing Verlander (211), Greinke (197) and Jon Lester (187).
Though the opposition is hittin just .238 against Hernandez, its hitting even less against five other starters - including Sabathia and Beckett (.235).
Greinke and Halladay each have five complete games, Verlander and Beckett three each. Felix? He has one.
With a month left to the season, Felix doesn't lead the league in any significant category but is near the top in most of them.
How he fares over his last six starts could move him closer to a Cy Young Award, but if you're in his camp, you probably want to hope a few very good pitchers have a bad month.
