Dodgers’ Julio Urías among 2022 National League Cy Young Awards finalists

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Dodgers pitcher Julio Urías, who led the National League in ERA and finished second in the 2022 Major League Baseball season, is among the three finalists for the National League Cy Young Award, the winner of which will be announced next week.

Sandy Alcántara of the Miami Marlins and Max Fried of the Atlanta Braves are his rivals to beat in the season-ending poll conducted by members of the Baseball Writers Association of America.

The Dodgers left-hander finished last season as MLB’s only 20-game winner and was seventh in the ERA with a 2.96, but he didn’t even make the top 5, finishing seventh with just 3 points.

Now, with a 2.16 ERA in 31 starts and 17 wins, he landed a spot on the list that doesn’t include the Braves’ Kyle Wright, who, like Urías last year, was the only one to win 20 games this season , and was eliminated from the top three finalists.

The Mexican native struck up a conversation with Cy Young in the second half of the season, when in the first half his numbers weren’t even considered worthy of an All-Star Game.

The only Mexican player to win the Cy Young is Fernando Valenzuela, who made it in his 1981 rookie season with the Dodgers.
