Honorable Mention: Johnny Cueto
Previously the ace of the Cincinnati Reds staff, Cueto made his way to the San Francisco Giants in 2016 after twice finishing in the top five in NL Cy Young voting.
Despite spending just a few seasons with the Giants during the decade and spending significant time on the injured list, he has been a valuable asset when healthy.
In his first season with the team, he went 18-5 with a 2.79 ERA and 198 strikeouts in 219.2 innings to finish sixth in Cy Young balloting. He was 13-1 with a 2.47 ERA in the first half that year, earning the start for the NL squad in the All-Star Game.
Injuries limited him to 25 starts in 2017 and he made just nine starts in 2018 before he landed on the disabled list and eventually underwent Tommy John surgery. He has been on the comeback trail ever since, and there’s a chance we could see him back in action in September. Will he return to his normal caliber of pitching to help for the stretch run?
