Scherzer drew 28 of the 30 first-place votes in results released Wednesday in balloting by members of the Baseball Writers' Association of America.

Yu Darvish of the Texas Rangers was second, marking the highest finish by a Japanese-born pitcher in Cy Young voting. Hisashi Iwakuma of the Seattle Mariners was third.
