Kim Ha-seong (28, San Diego Padres) teammate Blake Snell (31) has won the National League Cy Young Award for the 2023 season.
MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), announced Snell’s Cy Young Award win on Saturday (Aug. 16). Snell received 28 of 30 first-place votes, totaling 204 points, to edge out Logan Webb (San Francisco Giants) and Zack Gallon (Arizona Diamondbacks), who received 86 and 68 points, respectively.토토사이트
This is Snell’s second Cy Young Award in five years and second in his career, following his 2018 campaign with the American League (AL) Tampa Bay Rays. In addition to the AL, Snell also won the Cy Young in the National League, making him the seventh pitcher in history to win the award in both leagues. Only Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez, Gaylord Perry, Roy Halladay, and Max Scherzer have done it before.
Snell started 32 games this season, going 14-9 with a 2.25 ERA. His 2.25 ERA ranks first in the MLB, ahead of Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees – 2.63). In his last 23 starts, he’s been “dominant,” with a 1.20 ERA. He walked a bit too many batters (99), but his other metrics, including batting average (.181) and strikeouts (234), were outstanding.
He was the first San Diego pitcher to win the Cy Young in 16 years and the fifth all-time since Jake Peavy in 2007. Snell is a free agent after the season and is being courted by several teams. According to John Hairman of the New York Post, the Los Angeles Dodgers, San Francisco Giants, and others are interested in Snell, in addition to San Diego.
