Zack Greinke Wins AL Cy Young Award

They may not have had a winning season in six years, but the Kansas City Royals aren’t completely without hope: Royals pitcher Zack Greinke won the American League Cy Young Award on Tuesday. During the 2009 season, Greinke was 16-8 with a 2.16 ERA. Second place went to Felix Hernandez of the Seattle Mariners, who was 19-5 with a 2.49 ERA. Detroit’s Justin Verlander finished third; the Yankees’ C.C. Sabathia finished fourth; and Toronto’s Roy Halladay finished 5th.
