Yes, if you are a retired writer, sometimes they let you keep your vote. Yep. That’s a thing. Anyway…
I am surprised that Santana didn’t tally up multiple votes, but that might be one of the downsides of playing for a team that was pretty horrid.
Second place went to Matt Shoemaker of the Angels and third place went to Dellin Betances of the Yankees. You can check out the results here. There’s also a cool tab showing what writer voted for whom.
Congrats, Danny Santana. You were one of the few bright spots in the darkness of another 90-loss season.
