Philadelphia Phillies Pick
Aaron Nola To Win NL Cy Young Award (+1200, DraftKings)
Nola was one of the best pitchers in baseball a year ago, and the reason he finished only seventh in Cy Young voting had more to do with the competition he faced compared to his peers than his actual performance. While Trevor Bauer and Yu Darvish feasted on NL Central weaklings, Nola faced the gauntlet that was MLB’s East divisions.
By DRA, Nola was the best starting pitcher in the National League (tied with Shane Bieber for the best mark in baseball). This year, he’s projected among the top-5 pitchers in baseball once again. I’d put him as the second- or third-most likely winner in the NL along with deGrom and Flaherty, so at 12/1 this is great value.
