Top 10 left-handers in Major League Baseball in 25 years
Andy Pettitte is a well-known member of the Core Four. Pettitte is an all-star player who won three league championships in 1996.

David Wells is characterized by abrasion. He has been employed in 10 franchises for about 20 years. In 2000, he won the front-runner in the U.S. League and was elected to the All-Star category three times, helping Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees won the World Series championship.
In the mid and late 2000s, John Santana became the most important pitcher in the sport.

The 34 years old Lester is still one of the best pitchers in the sport.
Chris Sale, the Boston Red Sox jersey, is probably the most important pitcher in the world.
