In a season full of remarkable accomplishments, Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Max Scherzer added another honor – albeit an expected one – to the list Wednesday night, winning the American League Cy Young.

A six-year MLB veteran, Scherzer won 21 games in 2013 and recorded an ERA of 2.90. He started the All-Star Game and served as Detroit’s number one starter in the postseason.

Scherzer finished with 28 out of 30 first place votes.  The other two went to the Tigers’ Anibal Sánchez, who finished fourth; and Chris Sale of the Chicago White Sox.

The competition included Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers, who led the league with 277 strikeouts and recorded a 2.83 ERA, and Hisashi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners, who finished with a 2.66 ERA.
