Teheran just barely holds on to third place in this race this week, edging out the Dodgers' Hyun-Jin Ryu by virtue of a few points of ERA+ and Teheran's better K/BB and K/9 rates (Ryu is at 3.06 and 7.2, respectively, in the latter two categories). Shelby Miller remains hot on the heels of Teheran and Ryu, but his lower innings total (19 2/3 fewer than Ryu) makes it easy to rank Miller fifth overall.
