Rays' Blake Snell: Captures AL Cy Young
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell won the 2018 American League Cy Young Award on Wednesday.

Despite pitching just 180.2 innings -- the fewest ever from a Cy Young Award-winning starting pitcher -- Snell narrowly beat out Justin Verlander to win the award for the first time in his career. The lefty put together an impressive breakout campaign in 2018, finishing with a league-best 21 wins (and just five losses), while posting a 1.89 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, 11.0 K/9 and 3.2 BB/9 across 31 starts.

Rays' Blake Snell: Dazzles in finale of Cy-caliber season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell gave up one run in five innings Saturday, giving up three hits while striking out 10 and walking four in the Rays' 4-3 win, but he didn't factor into the decision.

Though he didn't notch a win as the cherry on top, Snellzilla gave up three or fewer runs for his 15th straight start and struck out eight-plus for the seventh time in eight outings to wrap up his remarkable 2018 breakout season. Arguably the top candidate for the American League's Cy Young Award, Snell finishes with a jaw-dropping 1.89 ERA, 11.0 K/9 and a 3.2 BB/9 in 180.2 innings. Caution: His absurdly high 88.0 left-on-base percentage might position him for a notable ERA correction in 2019. That being said, Snell, turning 26 in December, boasts the alluring dominance and command that befits a conservative projection of a low-end fantasy ace in most fantasy formats, while it's strongly possible he'll again finish among the top few.

Rays' Blake Snell: Wins ninth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (21-5) allowed no runs on three hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while recording the win over the Blue Jays on Sunday. He struck out 11.

Snell was outstanding again, winning his ninth consecutive start. The left-hander permitted only three singles and during his nine-start winning streak has given up only six earned runs in 46 innings. The 25-year-old has a sterling 1.90 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP this season, and his next scheduled start is Friday at home against these same Blue Jays.

Rays' Blake Snell: Carries no-hitter into seventh, claims 19th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell (19-5) picked up the win Wednesday against the Indians, allowing one run on one hit and two walks while striking out nine across seven innings.

Snell was dominant in this one, carrying a no-hitter into the seventh inning before serving up a leadoff solo homer to Jose Ramirez. He's now won seven straight, and his 19 wins are the most in the majors. The southpaw also owns an impressive 2.03 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 10.7 K/9 through 28 starts this season, putting him firmly in the AL Cy Young discussion. He'll look to keep it rolling in his next start, which will come on the road against the Rangers.

Rays' Blake Snell: Continues to dominate in second half
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Snell won his 17th game Saturday against Cleveland, giving up two runs (one earned) and eight hits over 6.2 innings. He struck out nine and walked one.

Snell stumbled a bit early in this outing, allowing a string of extra-base hits after a leadoff throwing error by Matt Duffy in the second. A terrific throw by Kevin Kiermaier gunned Yan Gomes at the plate by a mile to end the inning, and that was the last time Cleveland scored off the southpaw. Since coming off the disabled list last month, he now has a 1.10 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP over six starts. His next outing will come at home against Baltimore.
