Corey Kluber Wins Cy Young, Beating Out Red Sox Ace Chris Sale

Indians' Corey Kluber named American League Cy Young Award winner

Max Scherzer won his second straight and third overall Cy Young Award.

Scherzer finished first in the league in strikeouts (268) and batting average against (.176), and second in ERA (2.51) and strikeouts per nine innings (12.02). 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.

Besides his 2016 Cy Young Award, Scherzer also won the 2013 award while pitching for the Detroit Tigers.

Scherzer joins Kershaw as one of 10 pitchers to win the award at least three times, joining Kershaw. The Nats' Stephen Strasburg finished in third place with one second-place vote and 23 third-place votes.

He earned 27 of 30 first-place votes in voting by the Baseball Writers' Association of America along with three second-place votes for a total of 201 points. 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. 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. He was 16-6 with a career-best 2.51 ERA, and an NL-best 6.0 Wins Above Replacement, according to Fangraphs.

Both Strasburg and Kershaw missed considerable time with injuries while Scherzer stayed healthy, for the most part. That start was followed by a DL stint, and when Kluber came back, he was lights out, going 15-2 from his June 1 return until the end of the regular season. Kluber took the loss in the decisive Game 5 after giving up three runs in 3.2 innings. But Sale had a sluggish finish, with a 4.09 E.R.A.in August and September, months in which Kluber's E.R.A. was 1.42.

Sale pitched more innings and games and struck out more batters while Kluber bested Sale in ERA, WHIP and most other rate stats.
