Breaking: Reds Pitcher Trevor Bauer Wins NL Cy Young
Advertisement

Trevor Bauer was named the National League Cy Young Award winner for the 2020 season on Wednesday evening.

For the first time in franchise history, a Cincinnati Reds pitcher earned the award, which has been given to the most outstanding pitcher since 1956. Bauer received 27 first-place votes while Chicago Cubs pitcher Yu Darvish collected the remaining three. The nine-year veteran made 11 starts and won five while leading the NL with a 1.73 earned run average.

Bauer also threw two complete-game shutouts, both of which were seven-inning matchups in which he allowed two hits or less and struck out at least seven. He struck out a total of 100 in the shortened season.

The 29-year-old finished sixth in the American League Cy Young voting just two seasons ago with the Cleveland Indians. He pitched to a 12-6 record with a 2.21 ERA, striking out 221 batters.

The next step for Bauer is to figure out where he will show off his well-earned hardware. He declined the one-year, $18.9 million qualifying offer extended by the Reds and is currently a free agent.
