The 2012 Cy Young Award win­ner has a ca­reer mark of 104–56 and a 3.09 ERA, plus he’s ex­actly the type of guy you want in a club­house. The 30-year-old’s strike­outs per nine in­nings dipped to 9.2 from 9.8 and his walks per nine rose from 1.4 to 1.9. On the other hand, he al­lowed just 17 homers af­ter giv­ing up 25 the year be­fore.
