Morning Roundup: Verlander, deGrom win Cy Young Awards

Despite deGrom's dominance in the voting, the field seemed to be much deeper this season with Ryu and Walker Buehler from the Dodgers, Scherzer and his Nationals teammate Stephen Strasburg, along with Jack Flaherty of the St. Louis Cardinals and Mike Soroka of the Atlanta Braves, all putting together excellent seasons.

Verlander continued a marvelous second act to his career since a 2017 trade from Detroit to Houston. He led the majors with 21 victories and padded his Hall of Fame resume by having his three, 000th strikeout in his ultimate begin of the frequent season.

The story from The Korea Times also mentioned that South Korean outfielder Shin-soo Choo of the Texas Rangers asked their front office to pursue Ryu this off-season, which Choo discussed on a Korean radio station in Dallas. He finished 11-7 with a 2.92 ERA and 243 strikeouts in 172.1 innings.

There were some shocking reactions on Twitter to Cole missing out on becoming a first-time Cy Young victor occurred even though he and Verlander had very similar stats in the regular season, which are the only ones that count because ballots had to be cast before the start of the postseason.

Charlie Morton of the Tampa Bay Rays was third, followed by the Cleveland Indians' Shane Bieber and Lance Lynn of the Texas Rangers. Lucas Giolito, White Sox; Eduardo Rodriguez, Red Sox (8 points) 8.

DeGrom is in special company as a repeat NL victor, joining Sandy Koufax, Greg Maddux, Randy Johnson, Tim Lincecum, Clayton Kershaw, and Scherzer. Led the NL in strikeouts and WAR while finishing second in ERA and WHIP and third in innings pitched. He joins Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw, Tim Lincecum, Randy Johnson, and Greg Maddux as the only NL pitchers to ever win consecutive Cy Youngs.

After signing a $137.5 million, five-year deal to remain with the Mets shortly before opening day, deGrom wasn't so dominant early in the season. He lost both of his starts against the Washington Nationals, giving up seven runs in 11 innings.

The embarrassment in Miami was a wake-up call for deGrom. The reigning Cy Young victor was nine starts into his season and he was 3-5 with a 3.98 ERA. DeGrom wrapped up the season with 23 consecutive scoreless innings.

"Last year, it was kind of smooth sailing all year", deGrom said. "But if there's anything I need to do (regarding free agency), I'll probably fly back to the U.S.at some point".
