Indians' Shane Bieber captures American League pitching Triple Crown

Shane Bieber became the first American League pitcher to win the Triple Crown since Johan Santana did it for the Minnesota Twins 在 2006.

Cleveland Indians ace is almost certainly a lock-in for the American League Cy Young award and could capture the American League MVP award. A pitcher has not won the AL MVP award since Justin Verlander captured it in 2011.

“I would expect his success to continue,” Indians president of baseball operations Chris Antonetti said earlier in September, 根据 MLB.com. “Which is a really difficult thing to say when you’re playing against the best players in the world. The fact that Shane has the ability to continually make those adjustments, and once hitters may determine how he’s trying to attack them, the fact that he can make the adjustment and find a different way to succeed is a testament to just how skilled Shane has become as a pitcher.”

For a pitcher to win the Triple Crown, they must lead the league in wins, strikeouts and ERA. Bieber had eight wins, 一个 1.63 ERA, 和 122 strikeouts in just 12 starts during the pandemic-shortened season.
