2 Johnny Cueto CIN 5.7
3 Chris Sale CHW 5.1
4 David Price TB 4.9
5 Hiroki Kuroda NYY 4.6
6 Jake Peavy CHW 4.4
Jordan Zimmermann WSH 4.4
8 Matt Harrison TEX 4.3
9 Felix Hernandez SEA 4.2
10 Kyle Lohse STL 3.8
Use fangraphs pitching for WAR, it's better as it's peripherally based. ESPN use b-ref's, which is better for position players than pitchers.
