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

Boston Red Sox lefty Chris Sale finished second in voting, garnering two first-place votes, and was followed by New York Yankees right-hander Luis Severino.

Kluber, the Indians ace, won the AL Cy Young award Wednesday.

Scherzer put up a 2.51 ERA and 2.90 FIP in 2017 while leading the NL with 268 strikeouts. He became the first Indians' pitcher to win the award twice, while Sale - who led the majors in strikeouts - saw his candidacy fail again. Both took losses in the decisive fifth game of a division series, at home, to end their season - Kluber as a starter, Scherzer in relief.

When it comes to a starting pitcher in Major League Baseball, there is not an award more coveted than the Cy Young.

Midway through the season, it seemed like a sure thing that Sale would win his first Cy Young award.

Finishing second was three-time Cy Young Award victor Clayton Kershaw.

When Kluber returned from the disabled list on June 1, he was carrying a 5.06 ERA. The missed time did not prevent Kluber from crossing the 200-inning threshold for the fourth straight season. He struck out at least eight batters in 19 of his last 23 starts. Kershaw finished in second place with three first-place votes, 25 second place votes, and one third-place vote. However, while Kluber got better as the season wore on, Sale got worse. Carlos Carrasco, Justin Verlander, Craig Kimbrel, Ervin Santana and Marcus Stroman also received votes. He had allowed just 39 earned runs in 148.1 innings when the calendar turned from July to August. Other three-time winners are Pedro Martinez (two in the AL and one in the NL), Jim Palmer (all in the AL), Tom Seaver (all in the NL) and Sandy Koufax (all in the NL). That includes a 10-1 stretch with a 1.42 ERA in over final two months of the regular season.
