Here are my updated AL Cy Young rankings for starting pitchers after Roy Halladay got lit up by the Rays last night. His ERA jumped from 2.78 to 3.03 (2nd in the league to 4th). That caused him to drop out of the Cy Young lead behind Zack Greinke.

Justin Verlander also wasn’t great, but he got the win over the Angels to help his cause. He continues to have a healthy lead in strikeouts, and moves up from 4th to 3rd in the Cy Young rankings, right behind Halladay.

1.  Zack Greinke, Royals 134 points

2. Roy Halladay, Blue Jays 132 points

3. Justin Verlander, Tigers 131 points

4. Felix Hernandez, Mariners 116 points

5. CC Sabathia, Yankees, 102 points

6. Josh Beckett, Red Sox 91.5 points

7. Jered Weaver, Angels 66.5 points

8. Edwin Jackson, Tigers 56 points

9. Jarrod Washburn, Tigers/Mariners 42 points

10. Jon Lester, Red Sox 37 points
