Who Will Win The 2020 National League Cy Young Award?

Updated February 10, 2020 • 3:31pm PST 1.4k votes 59 voters48 items

While everyone in baseball wants to win a World Series, the best pitchers in the league will all be competing for the 2020 Cy Young award. In the National League, that means young aces like Walker Buehler and Jack Flaherty, as well as established veterans such as Yu Darvish and Madison Bumgarner.

Former NL Cy Young winners like Max Scherzer, Clayton Kershaw, and two-time defending Cy Young winner Jacob deGrom will all be a major part of the National League 2020 Cy Young race, as well as relative newcomer to the NL Sonny Gray, who was an All-Star for the Reds in 2019, his first season in the National League.

So check out this list of some of the best pitchers in the National League, and vote up the stars you think have the best odds of being named the NL's Cy Young winner of 2020.
