Fansided A.L. Pitcher Of The Year: Justin Verlander


There is little drama involved in this selection as Justin Verlander earned the nod as Fansided’s Pitcher of the Year for 2011. Verlander, as Tigers fans know, essentially dominated from start to finish, and if he didn’t win this award, some people might need their melons examined.

Verlander wasn’t the only pitcher on the Tigers to receive votes however. Doug Fister got plenty of mention, and Tigers closer Jose Valverde got plenty of votes as well. Jared Weaver of the Angels finished 2nd.
