MLB Awards 2017

The 2017 Cy Young recipients are both repeat winners, with Corey Kluber of the Cleveland Indians claiming honors in the American League and Max Scherzer of the Washington Nationals taking home his second straight National League trophy.

Kluber beat out AL finalists Chris Sale of the Boston Red Sox and Luis Severino of the New York Yankees by receiving 28 out of 30 first-place votes and 204 total points.

Scherzer came out ahead of Nationals teammate Stephen Strasburg and Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers with 27 first-place votes and 201 total points.

Here are full voting results from both the AL and NL, per the Baseball Writers’ Association of America:

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

Major League Baseball and the Baseball Writers Association of America announced Wednesday that Scherzer won his second consecutive NL Cy Young and his third career Cy Young. He won the AL award while with the Tigers in 2013. Scherzer is one of only six pitchers to win the award in both leagues.

Overall this season, Scherzer led the Senior Circuit in strikeouts (268) and WHIP (0.90) while going 16-6 with a 2.51 ERA (177 ERA+) in 200 2/3 innings. His +7.3 WAR was second among all pitchers, trailing only Indians ace Corey Kluber. Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw finished second in the 2017 NL Cy Young vote while Scherzer’s teammate Stephen Strasburg finished third.

AL Cy Young Voting

1. Corey Kluber, Cleveland Indians (204 points; 28 first-place votes)

2. Chris Sale, Boston Red Sox (126 points; two first-place votes)

3. Luis Severino, New York Yankees (73 points)

4. Carlos Carrasco, Cleveland Indians (43 points)

5. Justin Verlander, Detroit Tigers/Houston Astros (32 points)

NL Cy Young Voting

1. Max Scherzer, Washington Nationals (201 points; 27 first-place votes)

2. Clayton Kershaw, Los Angeles Dodgers (126 points; three first-place votes)

3. Stephen Strasburg, Washington Nationals (81 points)

4. Zack Greinke, Arizona Diamondbacks (52 points)

5. Kenley Jansen, Los Angeles Dodgers (22 points)

Diving into the numbers, even against stiff competition, it’s clear why Kluber and Scherzer were named the best pitcher in their respective league for the 2017 Major League Baseball season.

Starting with Kluber, who previously won the AL Cy Young in 2014, his season got off to a disastrous start. The Indians right-hander had a 5.06 ERA with more hits allowed (38) than innings pitched (37.1) after a May 2 outing against the Detroit Tigers.

Kluber was placed on the disabled list with a back injury on May 3. He returned on June 1, looking like a completely different pitcher. He was named AL Pitcher of the Month in June, August and September with a 1.62 ERA and 224 strikeouts in 166.1 innings over his final 23 starts.

“Once he gets comfortable and gets his legs under him in a season, man, he pitches at such a high level,” Indians manager Terry Francona told Jordan Bastian of MLB.com.
