Baseball Writers' Association of America American League Cy Young Award: Corey Kluber, Cleveland Indians

Here are the voting results of the 2014 American League Cy Young Award. Ballots from two writers in each league city prior to postseason play are tabulated on a system that rewards seven points for first place, four points for second place, three points for third place, two votes for fourth place and one point for fifth place.

Kluber had never received a Cy Young Award vote in any previous election. He was the fourth Indians player honored. The others: Gaylord Perry in 1972, CC Sabathia in 2007 and Cliff Lee in 2008.
