Come il sollievo dei Cubs Ryan Tepera ha concluso con più voti MVP della NL rispetto a Bryce Harper, Jacob deGrom e altre stelle

Ryan Tepera may not win any major awards during his Major League Baseball career, but at least he can say he received one National League MVP vote.

Atlanta Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman came away with the 2020 National League MVP award, and as the voting was revealed, it was learned that Tepera received one 10th-place vote.

There was immediate confusion because Tepera, who finished up his sixth MLB season and first with the Chicago Cubs, finito con un 3.92 ERA with 31 strikeouts in 21 Giochi. It was one more vote than Bryce Harper, Jacob deGrom e Nolan Arenado.

As it turns out, a baseball writer made a mistake voting for him.

Rick Hummel, who writes for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, said he was trying to vote for Washington Nationals shortstop Trea Turner.

Hummel, who won the Baseball Writers’ Association of America’s award for excellence in 2006, said he figured he accidentally clicked Tepera’s name.

“I’m sure the Tepera family is delighted," disse NBC Sports. “But there’s no way I would have voted for him. It was an accident.”
