List RulesUpvote active National League pitchers you think will win the 2019 Cy Young award

Editor's Note: Voting and Reranking have been closed.

UPDATE: Mets starter Jacob deGrom won his second straight NL Cy Young award, beating out finalists Max Scherzer and Hyun-Jin Ryu.

The race for 2018 National League Cy Young winner came down to the wire, with the New York Mets' Jacob deGrom edging out the Washington Nationals' Max Scherzer and the Philadelphia Phillies' Aaron Nola. Those three figure to be in the hunt again among 2019 NL Cy Young candidates, but they won't be alone.

Alongside perennial contenders like the San Francisco Giants' Madison Bumgarner and the Arizona Diamondbacks' Zack Greinke, there are the up-and-comers like the Los Angeles Dodgers' Walker Buehler and the St. Louis Cardinals' Jack Flaherty. Never count out three-time winner and former MVP Clayton Kershaw, who is still one of the best active MLB players and has already cemented his status as one of the best baseball players of all time.

So who do you think will win the 2019 Cy Young award in the National League? Is he not listed here? Feel free to add his name below, and keep checking back throughout the season to see who moves up and who goes the other way.
