Question 17

Though your smith is a Washington Nationals season ticket holder out of convenience, he is religiously devoted to the Tribe. The finest afternoon he's spent at Progressive Field came courtesy of a stunning pitching performance from a not particularly promising pitcher only in the rotation because of the failed signing of Brett Myers. That pitcher outdueled Stephen Strasburg in a 2-0 victory in June 2013, working out of multiple man on 3rd, no out situations.

It was a lot more than could be reasonably expected from a middling prospect acquired for Jake Westbrook in a three way trade with the Cardinals and Padres, who at that time had a career ERA of 4.76. Name this hopefully-soon-to-be two time Cy Young Award winner, who led the AL in wins, ERA, CG, SHO, ERA+, WHIP, H/9 IP, BB/9 IP, and K/BB ratio in 2017. (edited at 3:15 pm, October 6, 2017 (CDT))
