Jordan Zimmermann, SP – 1-0/0.00 ERA/8 IP/8 SO /0.25 WHIP
Through five weeks, Zimmermann’s been a mainstay on the list thanks in part to his 5-1 start to the 2013 season. For obvious reasons, Stephen Strasburg and Gio Gonzalez get a lion’s share of the attention, but right now Zimmermann is staking his claim as one of the best pitchers in baseball. Zimmermann is also shutting down the best teams, as evidenced by his 17 scoreless innings against Atlanta and Cincinnati.
