New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole (33) won the Cy Young Award after his third attempt.
Cole swept 30 first-place votes (210 points) in the Cy Young Award vote announced on the 16th, becoming the winner of the American League. The Cy Young Award is decided by a vote of the American Baseball Journalists Association (BBWAA). Cole, who finished second twice in 2019 and 2021, finally enjoyed his first win.
Cole ranked third in multiple wins (15 wins), first in ERA (2.63), third in strikeouts (222), and first in innings pitched (209 innings). Cole was the first Yankees pitcher to win the award in 22 years after Rosé Clemens in 2001. 스포츠토토
Cole continued to pitch well in 2021, his second season since moving to the Yankees. However, the performance has fallen sharply since the regulation of FineTar. Last year, he was also somewhat disappointed with 13 wins, 8 losses and an ERA of 3.50. This year, however, he regained his old skills and won the Cy Young Award.
Sonny Gray (Minnesota Twins), who scored 104 points with 20 second-place votes and six third-place votes, came in second, and Kevin Gausman (Toronto Blue Jays), who scored 82 points, came in third.
In the National League, San Diego Padres left-hander Blake Snell won with 28 out of 30 first-place votes. Snell has 14 wins and 9 losses with a 2.25 ERA and 234 strikeouts while playing 180 innings in 32 games this year.
He is the second winner after 2018 when he played for the Tampa Bay Rays. Snell is the seventh player ever to win two major leagues, behind Clemens, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Max Scherzer, Gailrod Perry and Roy Halladay.
