Future Hall-of-Famer Justin Verlander’s 15th season was one of his best. The 6-foot-5 right-hander led the majors with 21 wins, a .172 opponent batting average and a 0.80 WHIP while being selected for his eighth All-Star Game. He also struck out 300 batters for the first time and joined the 3,000-strikeout club along the way. Astros teammate Gerrit Cole and Lucas Giolito were the runners up.

Through the Players Trust, Verlander will receive a $20,000 grant to direct to charities of his choice.
