The National League, originally founded in 1876, consists of the following teams: Arizona Diamondbacks; Atlanta Braves; Chicago Cubs; Cincinnati Reds; Colorado Rockies; Los Angeles Dodgers; Miami Marlins; Milwaukee Brewers; New York Mets; Philadelphia Phillies; Pittsburgh Pirates; San Diego Padres; San Francisco Giants; St. Louis Cardinals; and Washington Nationals.

Jacob deGrom was revealed tonight as the National League's top pitcher in 2018 in a lopsided vote over Scherzer, who was trying to join elite company with his fourth career and third consecutive Cy Young Award. Over his final 11 starts, he went 9-0 with a 1.17 ERA, allowed just nine runs in 61 2/3 innings and held batters to a.155 average.

Snell returned on August 4 in a four-inning start and then reeled off nine consecutive wins. He says his "goal is to continue to keep an open dialogue and just see where things go".

Anthony Martial arrives at France's Clairefontaine base after recall
City left-back Mendy will miss both fixtures after a scan in the French capital showed an issue with his knee. It's a setback for Martial , who earned a recall for France eight months after his most recent appearance.

The Mets' righty was expected to win, and he won in a landslide by taking 29 out of 30 available first-place votes. Scherzer got the other first-place vote with 123 total points. NY averaged 3.5 runs in games started by deGrom, second only to Cole Hamels for worst support in the majors among qualified pitchers.

DeGrom had previously finished seventh in the Cy Young voting in 2015 and eighth in 2017. (10-for-114) with runners in scoring position, lowest for an AL pitcher in the DH era, ahead of Martínez's.133 in 2000. Justin Verlander finished a close second in the voting and trade target Corey Kluber finished third.

Max Scherzer's league-leading stats in most pitching categories weren't enough to retain the Cy Young Award against the guy who led the majors in the most important category: ERA.
