MLB.com recently conducted a bi-national Cy Young Award mock poll of 49 experts and released the top five vote-getters on Saturday.
Ohtani received two first-place votes to finish third in the AL Cy Young Award voting.
This year, Ohtani started 22 games on the mound, posting a 10-5 record with a 3.17 ERA. He is tied for seventh in the AL in wins and eighth in ERA.
He earned his first career complete game on May 28 against the Detroit Tigers with nine innings of one-hit ball.
According to MLB.com, “Ohtani has been the Angels’ ace. In 130⅔ innings pitched, he has struck out 165 batters.” “Ohtani’s batting average is just .185. He has the lowest BABIP of any pitcher in the AL who has pitched a full game.”
“While skipping a scheduled start due to arm fatigue is a concern, Ohtani’s recent one-hit shutout in Detroit was a reminder of what he can do on the mound.”
As a hitter, Ohtani is batting .303 with 41 home runs, 84 RBIs, and a 1.067 OPS.
With his top-notch performance at both ends of the plate, Ohtani is the strongest candidate for AL Most Valuable Player (MVP).
Gerrit Cole (New York Yankees) is at the top of the AL Cy Young Award mock voting with 38 first-place votes.
In 25 games this season, Cole went 10-3 with a 2.76 ERA. His 156 1/3 innings pitched lead the AL in that category and ranks second in the AL in ERA. He is third in strikeouts with 166.
Kevin Gausman (Toronto Blue Jays) is second in the AL Cy Young voting, followed by Nathan Eovaldi (Texas Rangers) and Flamber Valdes (Houston Astros) in fourth and fifth place, respectively.
Zach Galifianakis (Arizona Diamondbacks) was the top vote-getter in the National League (NL). Fourteen first-place votes were cast.
In 25 games this season, Gallon went 12-5 with a 3.24 ERA. He is fourth in the NL in ERA and third in the league in innings pitched with 155⅔ innings.
Blake Snell (San Diego Padres), Justin Verlander (Chicago Cubs), Spencer Strider (Atlanta Braves), and Logan Webb (San Francisco Giants) rounded out the NL Cy Young Award mock voting in second through fifth place.
