Zack Greinke named Starting Pitcher of the Year by…….YOU!

Greinke Walking Off.jpgWay to go, Royals fans!  Zack Greinke picked up his fifth major offseason award today, being named Starting Pitcher of the Year in the 2009 MLB.com This Year in Baseball Awards (link)

Greinke, the 2009 American League Cy Young winner, headlined a field of 10 starting pitchers from both leagues.  He received 19.8% of the vote, edging San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum, the N.L. Cy Young winner, who picked up 19.6%.  New York’s CC Sabathia was third with 12.9% of the vote.  The award, voted on by over 12 million visitors to MLB.com, is one of 15 honors in a variety of categories.  A full listing of the award winners is available on MLB.com.

Greinke will receive a trophy in an on-field presentation during the 2010 season.  In addition to the Cy Young, he has also received recognition from the Major League Baseball Players Association, The Sporting News and the Negro League Baseball Museum.

Thanks for voting, Royals fans!  You made this happen!

Congrats Zack! This is off topic, so I apologize, is there any news on the 2010 Caravan? Not really overly concerned in the specifics, just want to confirm that there is going to be a Caravan. It always gets the juices flowing for the new season. Thanks, Andy

We will have caravans throughout the region in 2010. Details are still being finalized at this time. Stay tuned to royals.com and the blog for updates.
