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

Indians ace Corey Kluber is the American League Cy Young Award victor for the second time in four seasons. Scherzer was 16-4 with a 2.51 ERA, second best in the league, this season, and he led the NL in strikeouts with 268.

As for Severino, he broke out in a big way this season, throwing 193.1 innings with a 2.98 ERA (3.07 FIP) and excellent strikeout (29.4%), walk (6.5)%, and ground ball (50.6%) rates.

He said, "It'll take probably 10 years before new theories are tried enough times to give them a high chance of success". Speaking to Reuters , Gates said he wanted to help combat the rapidly rising numbers of Alzheimer's sufferers.

Scherzer is the first pitcher in either league to win back-to-back Cy Youngs since Kershaw in 2013-14. En route to his second Cy Young Award in four years, Kluber was phenomenal in helping lead the Indians back to the playoffs. The Nats' Stephen Strasburg finished in third place with one second-place vote and 23 third-place votes.

In the NL, Scherzer received 27 of 30 first-place votes. For the second straight autumn, a dose of redemption arrived a few weeks later when the Washington Nationals right-hander captured the National League Cy Young Award. After running neck and neck with Chris Sale for much of September, Kluber ended up taking the award easily, earning 28 of the 30 first-place votes.

Gio Gonzalez placed third with 18 points, giving the Nationals three of the top six NL Cy Young finishers.

Workload was a separator for Scherzer, as Kershaw and Strasburg had been limited by injury to 175 and 175 1/3 innings pitched, respectively. Still, the Nationals' second ace rode a dominant second half to the best overall season of his career, going 15-4 with a 2.52 ERA and 1.015 WHIP. 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. Of Kluber's 107 pitches, 73 found the strike zone.

Week 11 preview: Booking trips to championship weekend
The Fighting Irish is undefeated since a Week Two loss to Georgia but can't afford a letdown this week at Miami. But the Buckeyes of last year had more quality wins than seemingly Miami or Alabama would compile this year.

After a May 2 outing in which he lasted just three innings, Kluber's ERA stood at 5.06.
