Last week I took a look at the WAR and FIP leaders among American League starters in attempt to frame up the top contenders for the league's Cy Young Award after a little more than a month of the season. Now it's the NL's turn.
WAR Leaders (FanGraphs formula)
Adam Wainwright, RHP -- St. Louis Cardinals: 2.2
Wainwright took a no-hitter into the eighth inning in his last start and has issues but four bases on balls in 58 2/3 innings.
Shelby Miller, RHP -- St. Louis Cardinals: 1.5
Miller is the top rookie pitcher in the game this season.
The above six also lead the league in FIP, which removes defense from the equation.
