Major League Baseball fans have anxiously awaited for the award to be announced all week. This year there were some strong candidates in the competition. Shane Bieber included.

Around 6:30 Eastern Time, Major League Baseball announced the unanimous winner, Shane Bieber.

The right-hander proved why the Indians believe in him as their Ace this season. Taking the league by storm with a very impressive 1.63 ERA. He also had a record-setting strikeout rate of 14.2 strikeouts per nine innings.

This dominant performance allowed him to become the first pitcher since Johan Santana to lead the MLB in wins, ERA, and Strikeouts (Triple Crown). Santana did it back in 2006.

This season Bieber finished with an 8-1 record, while also putting up 122 strikeouts in 77.1 innings. Becoming the fastest player to put up a 100 strikeout season.

Last season, Bieber finished 4th in the award voting. But, this season he came firing on all cylinders. Let’s take a look back at how Beiber got to this point:

Pre-Cy Young Shane Bieber:

Bieber was drafted out of UC Santa Barbara in the 4th round of the 2016 MLB Draft. Before attending there, he had a chance to play for the Cowlitz Black Bears of the West Coast League in 2014. Bieber only spent 2016, and 2017 in the minors. Only to make his major league debut on May 31, 2018.

He had an impressive debut year, but stepped it up a notch last season in his sophomore MLB season and was named the MVP of the 2019 MLB All-Star game. And now at the age of 25 years old, Bieber has become the youngest Cleveland Indian to win the Cy Young award in franchise history.

Congratulations Shane Bieber!
