MLB CY Young Predictions

Last week I touched upon who I thought was going to win Rookie Of The Year in both the American and National League. Now I am going to talk about the CY Young Award. This season will be hopefully a normal baseball season. After last season I am looking forward to a FULL baseball season this year. With that being said here are some names of guys that I think will win the CY Young Award and my pick for the Award.


American League: 

Shane Bieber 

Shane Bieber is looking to become the first American League Pitcher to repeat as the American League CY Young Award winner for the first time since 1999-2000. That would be when Red Sox great Pedro Martinez did it. Bieber is the ace of the Cleveland Indians staff and if he has a dominating year like he did a season ago he will easily repeat as the CY Young Winner in the AL.

The Indians in my opinion aren’t going to be as good as they have been over the last five or so seasons. Bieber will be a big time bright spot for this team though. Bieber is going to hands down be one of the best pitchers this season, but will he do enough to earn a second straight CY Young?


Lucas Giolito

Lucas Giolito will take the next step this season and become the ace that the White Sox need him to become. Giolito has the tools to steal this award this season. I think with the way that the White Sox’s lineup looks, Giolito will be in a good position for the majority of his starts. Look out for Giolito as the odds are showing that he is one of the favorites this year.


Other Names: 

Gerrit Cole 

Tyler Glasnow

Jose Berrios 


Pick: Lucas Giolito 


National League: 

Jacob deGrom 

Jacob deGrom is arguably the best pitcher in baseball at the moment. The amount of unreal statistics that this guy has had over the last three seasons is out of this world. He has won two out of the last three CY Young Awards in the National League. He has a really good chance of making it three out of the last four.

The Mets got better this off-season and now that deGrom has the chance of actually getting run support, how many games will he win this season? deGrom is one of the most interesting pitchers that the MLB has to offer. Now we can’t wait to see what he has in store for us for the 2021 season.


Walker Buehler

I like Walker Buehler a whole lot better than I like Trevor Bauer this season. The Dodgers went out and signed Bauer to add to the Dodgers already insane pitching staff. So people like to think that Trevor Bauer will be even better this season pitching for the Dodgers right? Wrong, in my opinion this makes it a lot better for Walker Buehler. Buehler is going to be the number three in the rotation this season.

Buehler as a number three is going to be absolutely insane. He is going to put up career high numbers this season. He will have a career low in ERA, a career high in wins and in strikeouts as well. Mark my words we will see the best form of Walker Buehler this season.


Other Names: 

Max Scherzer

Blake Snell

Aaron Nola

Luis Castillo

Max Fried


Pick: Walker Buehler
