MLB: Ranking The Potential NL Cy Young Candidates

4. Johnny Cueto

Current 2016 stats: 13-3, 2.73 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 155 IP, 134 H, 31 BB, 141 K, .233 BAA

Projected: 19-4, 2.73 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, 230 IP, 199 H, 46 BB, 210 K, .233 BAA

Without a doubt, Johnny Cueto was the steal of the offseason. Despite the money he is earning, too many teams passed up on his services given his regular season struggles with the Royals last year.
