The Rangers have 24 quality starts on the season. Despite leading the league in shutouts, the Rangers are last in the league in quality starts. Darvish has 10 of the 24 quality starts. Martin Perez, who had Tommy John surgery and is out for the season, and Tepesch each have three. Nick Martinez, Saunders and Robbie Ross Jr. each have two while Scott Baker and Matt Harrison each have one.
A shutout does not necessarily mean a quality start. Three of the Rangers' 13 shutouts have been accomplished without the starter going six innings.
