Justin Verlander had a major-league-leading 10 starts in which he went at least seven innings giving up two or fewer runs yet failed to record a win.
No other pitcher had more than six such games in 2016.

In the past 100 seasons, only Roger Craig (1963), Claude Osteen (1965) and Jose Rijo (1993) had more such starts in a single year; each had 11.



No player hit more opposite-field home runs in the past three seasons combined than J.D. Martinez (29).

My opinion 5th. Walk rate a bit weak to be in the 2-hole.
