Zac Gallen secured a respectable 3rd place in the final National League Cy Young voting, showing improvement from his 5th place finish last year.

In 2023, Zac Gallen posted a 3.47 ERA, picked up a career high of 17 wins, and attended his first All-Star game, where he was declared the starting pitcher.

At home, Gallen was one of the best pitchers in the league, as he allowed just 28 runs through 102 innings, struck out 120 batters, and recorded a 12-3 record.

Meanwhile, the Cy Young title went to Blake Snell, who concluded the season with a remarkable 2.25 ERA.

In his last 31 innings pitched, Snell conceded a mere two earned runs, a feat that solidified his hold on the second Cy Young of his career, the first dating back to 2018 with the Rays.

Securing 2nd place in the voting was Logan Webb of the San Francisco Giants.

While Webb actually finished the season with a losing record on the mound, as his offensive support was extremely limited; he struck out nearly 200 batters, and he also wrapped up the 2023 season with a career-low WHIP of 1.07.

In a memorable final outing against the San Diego Padres, Webb tossed nine innings, allowing only one run and steering his team to a 2-1 victory.

On the American League side, it was Gerrit Cole who unanimously won the Cy Young Award for the first time in his career.
