Justin Verlander named 2019 AL Cy Young award winner

The BBWAA announced Wednesday that Justin Verlander is the 2019 American League Cy Young award winner.

Fantasy Impact

This is the second time Verlander has won the award. The first was way back in 2011. That gap in years shows how long the ace right-hander has been dominant for. In 2019 he posted a 2.58 ERA to go along with 300 strikeouts and 21 wins. He'll be 37 when the 2020 season begins but will still be a very early fantasy selection come draft season.

Justin Verlander reaches 3,000 career strikeouts

Verlander (21-6) allowed three runs on four hits and zero walks while striking out 12 over six innings in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Angels.

Fantasy Impact

Verlander became just the 18th pitcher in Major League Baseball history to record 3,000 strikeouts. He also reached 300 strikeouts in a single season for the first time in his career. Verlander finishes the season with a 21-6 record, 2.58 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 300 strikeouts in 223 innings.
