Corey Kluber wins 2017 AL Cy Young Award

  • Washington Nationals

Finishing a distant second was Red Sox left-hander Chris Sale, who earned two first-place votes and 28 second place votes for 126 points.

- Washington Nationals pitcher Max Scherzer has been named the National League Cy Young Award victor for the second consecutive year. He was 16-6 with a career-best 2.51 ERA, and an NL-best 6.0 Wins Above Replacement, according to Fangraphs.

Indians' Carlos Carrasco came in fourth place for the award.

It's the second consecutive Cy Young for Scherzer and his third overall-he won the 2013 AL Cy Young as a member of the Tigers.

Scherzer, 33, has been great for a while, but 2017 ranks as one of the best seasons of his career.




Kluber made 29 starts, striking out 265 over 203-2/3 innings and allowing 21 home runs. He also led the National League with 268 strikeouts in 2017.

The Indians lost the ALDS to the New York Yankees in five games. The Boston ace's ERA in August and September was 4.09, tied for 54th among 97 pitchers with at least 50 innings. Strasburg missed almost a month from the second half of July into the middle of August, but he was arguably the best pitcher in baseball after his return.

Earlier in the month, Kluber was named the AL's outstanding pitcher in Players Choice Awards balloting by the Major League Baseball Players Association.

Once again, Washington Nationals ace Max Scherzer is the National League Cy Young award victor.

Finishing second was three-time Cy Young Award victor Clayton Kershaw.
