A day after being named the Players Choice for best pitcher in the National League, Los Angeles Dodgers ace pitcher Clayton Kershaw has been named a finalist for the 2013 NL Cy Young Award.

Kershaw, regarded as the best pitcher in baseball by some, had another outstanding season with a 16- 9 record, 232 strikeouts and a 1.83 ERA, with a 0.92 WHIP. It’ll come as no surprise when he takes home the award as he’s regarded as the best pitcher in baseball over the likes of Justin Verlander and Felix Hernandez.

If Kershaw wins it’ll be his second Cy Young award in the past three seasons as he won the award in 2011 when he went 21-5 with a 2.28 ERA and 248 strikeouts.

The other finalists for the NL Cy Young award are Miami Marlins rookie pitcher Jose Fernandez and St. Louis Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright. Fernandez impressed the baseball world with a 12-6 record, 2.19 ERA and 187 strikeouts while the always reliable Wainwright finished the year with a 19-9 record, 2.94 ERA and 219 strikeouts.
