Factor12 Rating Leaders: Week 11


The Factor12 Rating (F12) is an analytic measurement utilizing league average performance to compare the value of all MLB pitchers

(1) R.A. Dickey flutters into the number one spot this week after twirling his second consecutive one-hitter.  The knuckleball specialist has not allowed an earned run over his last 42 innings pitched.  The 37 year-old leads MLB with a 31.172 Factor12 Rating.

(2) Justin Verlander has regained his 2011 AL Cy Young Award form and trails the top spot by a mere .102 points.  The Detroit Tigers ace leads MLB with 108.67 IP.

(3) Gio Gonzalez drops one position this week following a solid outing against the Tampa Bay Rays. The left-hander has allowed only 1 HR this season in 84.67 IP.

(4) Matt Cain followed up his perfect game with a mediocre performance against the Anaheim Angels.  Despite the sub par outing, the right-hander has recorded a victory in his last eight starts.

(5) Stephen Strasburg continues to amaze the baseball world following his latest gem on Wednesday night.  The Washington Nationals right-hander leads all MLB pitchers with 110 strikeouts.
