DeGrom, Snell win Cy Young — MLB.com FastCast

Jacob de Grom of the New York Mets

DeGrom's win is the first time ever that a starter has won the Cy Young while only having recorded 10 victories.

Earlier tonight, Major League Baseball and the BBWAA announced Rays southpaw Blake Snell is the 2018 AL Cy Young award victor. Scherzer had the other first-place vote.

The American League consists of the following teams: Baltimore Orioles; Boston Red Sox; Chicago White Sox; Cleveland Indians; Detroit Tigers; Houston Astros; Kansas City Royals; Los Angeles Angels; Minnesota Twins; New York Yankees; Oakland Athletics; Seattle Mariners; Tampa Bay Rays; Texas Rangers; and Toronto Blue Jays. "To be a Cy Young Award victor, you're in great company, and it truly is an honour".

Scherzer went 18-7 with a 2.53 ERA and led the majors with 220 2/3 innings and 300 strikeouts.

2018 was a season to forget for the New York Mets.

For the first time since 2015, Max Scherzer is not the NL Cy Young Award victor.

Jacob deGrom was named as the victor of the 2018 NL Cy Young award for his outstanding performances on the mound this season. DeGrom got 29 first-place votes and 207 points from members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America. Justin Verlander finished a close second in the voting and trade target Corey Kluber finished third. Also receiving votes were Kyle Freeland of the Rockies, Patrick Corbin of the Diamondbacks, Miles Mikolas of the Cardinals, Josh Hader of the Brewers, Mike Foltynewicz of the Braves, and Jon Lester of the Cubs.

The Cy Young victory for deGrom only further serves as a data point that voters have increasingly moved away from placing any real value on a pitcher's win-loss record when assessing his value; for all of his individual dominance in 2018, deGrom received virtually no run support and was saddled with a 10-9 record that was far from indicative of his consistent excellence. Other Cy Young winners from the Mets include Dwight Gooden (1985), and Tom Seaver (1969, '73, '75).

DeGrom has received Cy Young votes in two prior seasons but had never finished in the top five.
