Kershaw up for MVP and Cy Young Award



Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw is among the finalists for the NL Most Valuable Player and the Cy Young Award, putting him in a position to become the first NL player to sweep both honors since Bob Gibson in 1968.

Kershaw is joined by Pittsburgh outfielder Andrew McCutchen - the 2013 winner - and Miami outfielder Giancarlo Stanton as the NL MVP finalists, the Baseball Writers’ Association of America announced Tuesday.

Cincinnati’s Johnny Cueto and St. Louis’ Adam Wainwright are competing with the Los Angeles left-hander for the NL Cy Young.

In the AL, the MVP finalists are Cleveland outfielder Michael Brantley, Detroit designated hitter Victor Martinez and Los Angeles Angels outfielder Mike Trout, who finished second to the Tigers’ Miguel Cabrera in each of the last two votes. The Cy Young finalists are Chicago White Sox left-hander Chris Sale, Seattle’s Felix Hernandez and Cleveland’s Corey Kluber.
