The Yankees were shutout in this year’s Cy Young voting.
Hiroki Kuroda’s last two months were rocky enough to keep him off every ballot in this year’s voting. The Tigers’ Max Scherzer got all but two first-place votes and won the Cy Young award easily. Clayton Kershaw was a landslide winner in the National League.
Former Yankees starter Bartolo Colon got a few second-place votes and finished sixth overall, but there were no Yankees in any of the 30 ballots (each voter ranks his top five choices). The two voters representing the Yankees beat — Mark Feinsand and Pete Caldera — had remarkably similar ballots, with each voting for Scherzer, Yu Darvish, Hisashi Iwakuma, Chris Sale and Anibal Sanchez. The only difference was that Feinsand had Iwakuma second and Darvish third, and Caldera had Darvish second and Iwakuma third.
