NL Cy Young Prediction: Clayton Kershaw is still the man
Even though he had a shortened season due to injury, Clayton Kershaw is still in line to win his fourth NL Cy Young Award
Another season nears its end, another season where Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is in line to win yet another National League Cy Young Award. The big lefty turned in another great season despite an injury and last night brought his team one victory closer to its first World Series win in almost three decades.
Make no mistake, the 29-year-old is en route to winning his fourth such award and further cementing his spot in baseball history as one of the game’s best.
Another injury, no problem!
Kershaw had a fine 2016 campaign in going 12-4 and posting an astounding 1.69 ERA, but a back injury limited him to 149 innings across 21 starts. He missed two months and thus finished fifth in NL Cy Young voting.
