Top Minor League Starts, 2016

Just like ATVL keeps track of the top starts (by game score) in the Valley League each season, he tracks minor league starts as well. So here are the top 15 minor league starts in the 2016 season!

The line will look like this: place, name, minor league team, Valley League team, date, and then the line (IP, H, R, ER, BB, K), and then game score
