No controversy here.
In what is expected to be a prelude to his second Cy Young Award, Clayton Kershaw was voted the National League’s outstanding pitcher for 2013 by major league players. The Players Choice Award was the second for Kershaw, who also won it in his Cy Young Award season in 2011.
Finalists for the Cy Young Award, which are voted on by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America, will be unveiled Tuesday at 3 p.m. PT on MLB Network.
Kershaw, 25, was 16-9 with a 1.83 earned-run average.
Kershaw was also a finalist for player of the year in all of baseball, which was won by Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers, and outstanding player in the National League, which was won by Andrew McCutchen of the Pittsburgh Pirates.
