MLB Awards: Nationals' Max Scherzer named 2017 NL Cy Young victor

  • Indians' Corey Kluber named American League Cy Young Award winner

This was Kluber's second Cy Young Award - the first was in 2014 - making him the first two-time victor in club history and the 19th pitcher to win multiple since its inception 1956. Kluber led the league in ERA this year, with a 2.25 mark that led second-place Kershaw by.06 and third-place Scherzer by.26. After running neck and neck with Chris Sale for much of September, Kluber ended up taking the award easily, earning 28 of the 30 first-place votes. This is the second Cy Young for Kluber. Additionally, Kluber's 8.0 WAR was tops among pitchers in both major leagues.

Kluber became the first Indians pitcher to collect two Cy Young Awards, having previously captured the title in 2014. In the 2017 season, he compiled an incredible 18-4 record with a 2.25 ERA and 265 strikeouts, the second-most of his career.

Kluber was named the American League Pitcher of the Month in June after a strong showing following his return from the disabled list. He struck out at least eight batters in 19 of his last 23 starts.

Scherzer picked up 27 of 30 possible first-place votes, with Kershaw picking up the other three.

The Nationals lost the NLDS to the Chicago Cubs in five games. He had allowed just 39 earned runs in 148.1 innings when the calendar turned from July to August. Of Kluber's 107 pitches, 73 found the strike zone. Carlos Carrasco, Justin Verlander, Craig Kimbrel, Ervin Santana and Marcus Stroman also received votes. He threw 35 scoreless innings during a five-game stretch in August and September, the longest streak in Nationals history.

Luis Severino's first full Major League season has resulted in a third place finish in the American League Cy Young voting. The Nationals are perfectly content to have a three-time Cy Young victor anchoring their pitching staff.
