Sale has double-digit strikeouts in 10 of his 16 starts this season (and nine in three others), and think about this: The lefty has 155 strikeouts this season, while only allowing 21 walks and 82 hits. That’s just stupid good.
Why he’s here: Jansen has been incredible this season. He’s faced 122 batters on the year: He’s struck out 53, allowed 17 hits and walked only one batter.

Special shout out to Craig Kimbrel, Boston’s closer who has struck out 63 of the 123 hitters Cheap NFL Jerseys he’s faced. Damn.
