Major League Baseball (MLB) witnessed significant rule changes in 2023, including banning the shift, altering base sizes, and implementing pick-off limits, all aimed at boosting offensive gameplay. However, these changes didn’t hinder three stellar pitchers from standing out in the American League (AL). Gerrit Cole of the New York Yankees, Sonny Gray of the Minnesota Twins, and Kevin Gausman of the Toronto Blue Jays are now vying for the prestigious 2023 AL Cy Young Award. In this article, we delve into each pitcher’s outstanding performance and make a case for their Cy Young candidacy.
Gerrit Cole – New York Yankees:
The New York Yankees faced numerous challenges in the 2023 season, but amidst the struggles, Gerrit Cole emerged as a silver lining for the team. Signed to a record-breaking deal in 2020, Cole overcame criticism and delivered a standout performance. Leading the AL with a remarkable 2.63 ERA, 209 innings pitched (third in MLB), and a 0.98 WHIP, Cole silenced doubters. His two shutouts topped the league, and his 222 strikeouts placed him among the AL’s elite. Cole’s resilience and dominance make him a strong contender for the Cy Young Award.
