Chicago Cubs pitcher Jake Arrieta has been named the winner of the 2015 National League Cy Young award.

What It Means:

Arrieta won the award over the Los Angeles Dodgers' duo of Zack Greinke and Clayton Kershaw, who placed second and third, respectively. Arrieta picked up steam over the second half thanks to a historic run. He pitched to a 0.75 ERA and 0.727 WHIP in his last 15 regular season starts, fanning 113 and walking just 23 in 107 1/3 innings. The 29-year-old right-hander is the fifth Cubs' pitcher to win the award, joining Ferguson Jenkins (1971), Bruce Sutter (1979), Rick Sutcliffe (1984) and Greg Maddux (1992).

For the season, Arrieta finished 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, 236 strikeouts and 48 walks across 229 innings. Greinke posted a 1.66 ERA, which was the lowest in the majors since 1995. He went 19-3, fanned 200 and had a scoreless streak of 45 2/3 innings. Kershaw -- who had won the award three of the previous four seasons -- actually had a better year in 2015 than he did when he won the 2014 MVP award. He struck out 301 hitters in 233 innings and posted the fourth-best K%-BB% (29 percent) of all-time. He led all pitchers in xFIP (2.09) and Wins Above Replacement (8.6).
