Sporcle Friday: Mariners Rookies with the most Quality Starts

Starts are great, but quality starts are fantastic.

To be completely honest, I wanted to do something like "Mariners with the most All-Star Game Home Runs," but I chose this instead. The Mariners starting rotation had some ups and downs in the first half of the season before ultimately finishing with the fifth highest FIP in MLB before the All-Star Break. With news coming that reinforcements, at least from the disabled list, won't be on the way for some while, the M's will need to rely on the arms they have right now.

Towards the end of the first half, the Mariners called Andrew Moore up from Tacoma. Each of his three starts have been quality starts (at least 6.0 IP with 3 earned runs or less), something that has been very helpful for the team. In honor of this accomplishment, let's look at other Mariners Rookies who recorded a lot of quality starts.
