It’s official: the 2020 Warren Spahn Award Winner is none other than Hyun-Jin Ryu. The Warren Spahn Award is given to the best left-handed pitcher in MLB. The Toronto Blue Jays announced this morning via social media of the ace’s latest achievement after a strong season with his new ball club.

2020 Warren Spahn Award Winner: Ryu"s Season Numbers

The Toronto Blue Jays ace was phenomenal all season for the Blue Jays and continued that into the playoffs. He had a 5-2 regular-season record accompanied by a 2.63 earned run average. Ryu ranked among the best all season long, including our recently-released Top MLB pitchers today rankings.

At the age of 33, the Warren Spahn Award winner gave up 60 hits in 67 innings while only giving up 20 earned runs, of which only 6 left the ballpark.

Hyun-Jin Ryu was a Cy Young candidate in 2020 as he helped turn around a Toronto Blue Jays pitching rotation in need of some help. The left-handed pitcher was also nominated for the All-MLB Second Team.
