UTRMinors – American League Top Pitchers – May 2016

By Jim Brown
 
Here are the American League Top Pitchers for May. I posted the National League yesterday morning, and it can be found here. It’s a shame that I am a owner in a NL-only League, as there are many pitchers listed that I wouldn’t be afraid to stash on my roster. This even goes for last month, as some of those pitchers just missed getting repeat mentions. Up next this week…will be the TPS Rankings for these pitchers and National League.
