Tribe ace Corey Kluber has been named the American League Cy Young Award. Kluber's four straight 10-plus strikeout performances tied an Indians record set by National Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller during the 1938 and 1939 seasons.
The Nationals lost the NLDS to the Chicago Cubs in five games. Kluber allowed only four earned runs, three home runs and three walks against 50 strikeouts over 43.0 innings of work. Kluber had 204 points, Sale had 126 and Severino had 73. In August, Strasburg posted a 0.86 ERA and had an even better mark, 0.83, for September. 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.
When it comes to a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball, there is not an award more coveted than the Cy Young.
This season he helped Cleveland to an AL-best record of 102-60, which included an AL record 22-game win streak in September.
