With the second half of the 2018 MLB season underway, it's time to make your AL Cy Young Award predictions. While there are plenty of pitchers making waves this season, notching K's and big wins, only a select few pitchers can truly be considered for the prestigious Cy Young award. From low ERAs to high win counts, these are the best starting pitchers in the game, lest we forget the lights-out closers also in contention. Of all the likely candidates, who will win the AL Cy Young Award in 2018?
When it comes to the American League hurlers, top MLB pitchers Chris Sale and Justin Verlander are always strong contenders, and this season is no different. These two aces have racked up wins, strikeouts, and kept their ERAs low all season long. Of course, you also have to consider Indians' righty Corey Kluber, who's having quite the season, not to mention fellow teammate Trevor Bauer, among other notable arms this season.
Check out the list of pitchers below currently in the running for the 2018 AL Cy Young Award and cast your votes for who you think will be handed the title. Don't forget to vote up your choices for the 2018 NL Cy Young Award winner as well.
