Blake Snell, Jacob deGrom named Cy Young Award winners

MLB Trade Rumors Jacob de Grom Willing To Talk Extension With MetsMore

Blake Snell won 21 games for the Rays during a remarkable breakout season, then got his biggest victory Wednesday night when he was voted the American League Cy Young award victor. DeGrom got 29 first-place votes and 207 points from members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

"It means a whole lot", Snell said on the MLB Network show. "The team didn't end up where we wanted to be this past season, but you kind of set personal goals, and I think being able to accomplish something that has been a dream of yours is just something special". Over full seasons, Snell is the second starter to win the award with fewer than 200 innings after Clayton Kershaw logged 198 1/3 in 2014. Snell allowed just two or fewer runs in 27 of his 31 starts, winning nine straight down the stretch with a 1.03 ERA in that span.

Severino of course had an uneven season this year, pitching incredibly well in the first half and pretty terribly in the second half.

Verlander led the AL with 290 strikeouts while going 16-9 with a 2.52 ERA for AL West champion Houston.

Despite a career-high 300 strikeouts, Max Scherzer came up short to New York Mets pitcher Jacob deGrom in the 2018 National League Cy Young Award vote.

The AL Cy Young was one of the toughest awards to pick this year, as Snell, Verlander and Kluber each had compelling cases.

Blake Snell won the 2018 AL Cy Young award, besting Justin Verlander and Corey Kluber.

Snell blamed himself for forcing his pitch count up with too many walks, but it was as much or more on his bosses, who kept a tight limit on his total pitches (only three games past 105) and pulled him in his first three starts off the DL after four, five (with a no-hitter) and five innings. Kluber had 71 points, followed by Boston's Chris Sale and Houston's Gerrit Cole. The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals. The 25-year-old left-hander led the league with 21 wins and ranked first in the AL in ERA (1.89), ERA+ (219) and hits per nine innings (5.6). He also joined Price as the just the second victor from an AL East team in the last 15 years. Everything that happens in a baseball game begins with the pitcher.

Despite winning just 10 games, deGrom took home the award on the strength of a 1.70 ERA.
