Blake Snell, 31, has won the second bi-league Cy Young Award of his career and the seventh in Major League Baseball history after a remarkable run leading up to free agency.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball, announced on Saturday that Snell won the National League Cy Young Award.레모나토토 주소
This is Snell’s seventh bi-league award, five years after winning the American League Cy Young Award in 2018.
Snell pitched 180 innings in 32 games this season, going 14-9 with a 2.25 ERA and winning the ERA title. He struck out 234 batters.
The voting was overwhelming. He missed a unanimous vote, but received 28 out of 30 first-place votes. A total of 204 points. The remaining two first-place votes were split between Logan Webb and Zach Gallon.
Snell hadn’t topped the Cy Young mock voting until midway through this season, despite his good numbers. Undervalued due to a lot of strikeouts.
However, Snell posted ERAs of 0.56 and 0.58 in July and September, effectively clinching his second bi-league Cy Young Award and seventh overall.
Snell is also eligible for free agency after this season. Although he’ll have to sign a contract starting at age 32, the Cy Young Award is a huge boost to his free agency prospects.
Webb, who finished second to Snell, had 86 points with one first-place vote and 17 second-place votes, while Gallon had 68 points with one first-place vote, three second-place votes, and 11 third-place votes.
Major League Baseball will now announce the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for both leagues on May 17. Shohei Ohtani and Ronald Acuña Jr. are certain to be honored.
