Seattle Mariners right-hander Felix Hernandez threw a perfect game against the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday, striking out 12 to win for the 11th time in 2012. Hernandez began the day 10th among starting pitchers on the Player Rater, but moved up to fourth after. With his youth, consistency and strikeout potential, he's in the discussion for top overall pitcher in 2013 drafts. King Felix was fifth in ESPN average live drafts among starting pitchers this season. Now he might be second only to Justin Verlander.
