19. Gio Gonzalez
Gio Gonzalez had a great first season with the Washington Nationals in 2012 where he would become the second runner up for the National League Cy Young Award and lead the league in Wins, FIP and SO/9. While he has not yet replicated that All Star season he has been earned his rotation spot earning double digit Wins every year since joining the Nats. In 2017 he would again finish in the top ten in Cy Young voting (sixth) while going 15 and 9 with a 2.96 ERA. Gonzalez would be traded in 2018 to the Milwaukee Brewers but his run in Washington was strong and he deserves this high spot on the list.
