MLB.com, the official website of Major League Baseball (MLB), announced on Saturday that Cole was the unanimous winner of the American League Cy Young Award for the 2023 season. Cole was a “unanimous choice” with 30 first-place votes, totaling 210 points, just ahead of Sonny Gray (Minnesota Twins, 104 points) and Gavin Gaussman (Toronto Blue Jays, 82 points) to secure his first career Cy Young Award.
It is the first time in 22 years and the sixth time in history that a Yankees player has won the Cy Young Award since Roger Clemens in 2001. Previously, Bobby Tully (1958), Whitey Ford (1961), Sparky Lyle (1977), Ron Guidry (1978) and Clemens (2001) won the Cy Young Award while wearing a pin-striped uniform. Cole started 33 games this season, going 15-4 with a 2.63 ERA. He leads the American League (AL) in both ERA and innings pitched (209). The Yankees finished fourth in the AL East and missed the postseason, but Cole’s performance was impressive.굿모닝토토 도메인

He finished fourth in NL voting in 2015, fifth in the AL in 2018, and bounced between second, fourth, and second in 2019, 2020, and 2021. Last year, they finished ninth in the AL and received votes in the Cy Young Award voting for the fifth straight season, but did not finish first. This year, in his 11th year, he dropped the dreaded “irrelevant. Cole’s career MLB record is 145-75 with a 3.17 ERA.
