Cease has the second-best ERA in all of baseball at 2.06, and over his last 19 starts, he’s been pretty dominant, which has pretty much become a theme every time he pitches.
He may not have been an All-Star this year, but with each start, he proves that that was a mistake.
In that stretch of starts, Cease has posted a 1.17 ERA in 115.1 innings pitched, has allowed 65 hits and 47 walks while striking out 135 batters and posting a 0.97 WHIP.

Cease Continues His Dominance
Cease is quickly turning himself into one of the best pitchers in all of baseball, strengthening his case for the Cy Young Award with each start.
He’s been absolutely dominant over the past few months and hasn’t slowed down.
The White Sox have also gotten hot, winning seven of their last 10 games and inching closer to first place in the AL Central.
Cease has played a key role in that with his dominance on the mound.
That is a very solid stretch of starts for the young right-hander.
In 28 starts this season, he’s 14-6 and has thrown a total of 162 innings.
He’s emerged as a frontline starter at just the right time, with all the struggles that the White Sox have endured with injuries and their two aces from last season, Lucas Giolito and Lance Lynn not performing up to par.
Cease hasn’t just been dominant in terms of ERA and wins, but hitters are collectively hitting just .184 against him.
It’s been a season to remember so far for Cease, and now he has a chance to potentially take home the Cy Young Award.
