This entry lists the best and worst for the past 30 days of the 2017 regular season, through games of Sunday, June 26. Here is an explanation of this weekly feature.

Comment of the week: Outside of Corey Kluber, the only pitcher in the top five in the American League for ERA over the past 30 days to have been on an All-Star team or received Cy Young Award votes are Drew Pomeranz (2016 All-Star) and Carlos Carrasco (two Cy Young vote points in 2015), who tied for fifth. Of the five AL pitchers with the worst ERA over the past 30 days, every one is a former All-Star, received Cy Young votes, or, in the case of all but Pineda and Porcello, both.
