Trevor Bauer talks about winning his first career NL Cy Young Award and how special it is to receive the award in 2020
Congratulations to Reds pitcher Trevor Bauer on receiving the 2020 National League Cy Young Award!
Bauer is the first player in Reds history to take home the award, which is presented annually by the Baseball Writers' Association of America to the top pitcher in each league. Previously, Bauer was honored as the NL’s Outstanding Pitcher in the Players Choice Awards presented by Topps and was named NL Pitcher of the Month for September.
In his second season with the Reds, Bauer emerged as the team’s ace in leading Cincinnati to its first Postseason berth since 2013. The right-hander led the NL with a 1.73 ERA, a 0.79 WHIP and a .159 opponents’ batting average, while finishing second with 100 strikeouts. Bauer became only the fifth pitcher in Reds’ franchise history to lead the NL in ERA and the first to accomplish the feat since Ed Heusser in 1944.
To celebrate this prestigious award, Trevor is giving back to Reds Country by supporting the Reds Community Fund. Visit TrevorBauer.com or click below to learn more about Trevor’s effort to help the community.
