Red Sox’s Cy Young Candidate

Going into the year, a lot of people thought the best pitcher for the Boston Red Sox was going to be David Price. While Price has pitched very well of late. He is not the Red Sox Cy Young award hopeful. 

The Cy Young Award is presented annually to the best two pitchers in Majors, one each for the American League and National League. 

The pitcher for the Red Sox who is putting in a strong effort to win the award, is Rick Porcello. 

Pretty Ricky has been great all year especially at home. As we saw last night, he notched his, major league leading 18th win. He is now 18-3 in 27 starts this year. His ERA is 3.26. His WHIP is 1.04. He has been unstoppable as of late, going seven straight starts in which he’s completed at least seven innings and allowed no more than three runs. 

His best numbers are though that he is still undefeated at home. He is now 13-0 when he pitching on the rubber at America’s most beloved ball park. 

The award however may go to the wire as it is a very tight race. Others up for the award include J.A Happ, Cole Hamels, Corey Kluber, Zach Britton, and Chris Sale. 

For Porcello, this run comes after a miserable season last year in which he went 9-15.

Let’s all hope, Pretty Ricky can keep this us and bring the award back home.
