More hints:

 

#1 is in the top ten all-time in hits, first place all-time in sacrifice bunts, and first in games played as a second baseman.

#4 had an awful lot of complete games.

#5 is also in the top ten in career hits, and won eight batting titles in the NL.

#6 is top five all-time in shutouts, and holds the all-time ML record for shutouts in a season with 16.

#8 played for both Philadelphia teams in his career (A's and Phillies) and in one season hit over .400

#10 had a wicked fastball and a lot of shutouts.

4 is Cy Young. Having trouble with these other ones. 

You got Cy Young.

 

#10 is the all-time leader in shutouts. I had mistakenly written 2nd in my previous hint. 

#10 also pitched for 21 seasons for the same American League team. He retired in 1927.
