Any chance Iwakuma wins the AL Cy Young award? He finished the season very strong with three straight scoreless games (23 innings combined).
He's 2nd in innings pitched in the AL with 219.2.
3rd in ERA (2.66), but the only two ahead of him are ahead by .02, and they have at least 35 fewer innings pitched.
He's 9th in strikeouts.
His record is 14-6, which is better than when Felix won it in 2010.
His biggest competition for the award is Max Scherzer. Scherzer has a higher ERA (2.94) and fewer innings pitched (214.1) Scherzer's biggest advantage is the W/L record (21-3), which used to be a big deal (see Clemens 2001), but its importance is lessening with voters lately (see Felix 2010).
I think he has a legit shot.
