Shane Bieber was named the 2020 American League CY Young award winner Wednesday.
Bieber won the AL CY Young unanimously after a terrific 2020 campaign. He beat out finalists Kenta Maeda and Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Indians’ ace posted a 1.63 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 122 strikeouts over 77 1/3 innings in 2020. Bieber is expected to be one of the top aces off the board in 2021 fantasy drafts.
Indians ace Shane Bieber has been named a finalist for the 2020 American League Cy Young award.
Kenta Maeda and Hyun-Jin Ryu are the other finalists. Bieber is widely expected to claim the award following an exceptional 2020 campaign.

Shan Bieber had his worst start of the season in the Indian's playoff opener against the Yankees, giving up seven runs on nine hits over 4 2/3 innings pitched.
Bieber struck out seven but was ultimately hit too hard and too often to give Cleveland a chance to win this one. DJ LeMahieu began the game with a single to right and Aaron Judge followed with a two-run homer. Bieber later gave up another homer to Gleyber Torres en route to a 12-3 loss. Bieber is going to win the American League Cy Young this year but he couldn't come through when Cleveland needed him most. The Indians' backs are to the wall. Carlos Carrasco will start Game 2 opposite Masahiro Tanaka.
