Cubs ace Jake Arrieta named NL Cy Young

Posted: Updated:

The Cubbies may not have won the World Series this year, but they are certainly taking home plenty of other hardware.  Kris Bryant was named National League Rookie of the Year, Joe Maddon was named NL Manager of the Year, and now starting pitcher Jake Arrieta is crowned the NL Cy Young.

Arrieta had 22 wins on the season with a 1.77 ERA and 236 strikeouts.  The Cubs ace was absolutely dominant in the second half of the season, posting a 0.75 ERA, the lowest mark after the All-Star break in history.
